  1. I don’t know. I have yet to see the value, what with Facebook for my family and friends connections and Twitter for my professional connections, I can’t quite get excited about yet one more place to manage my ‘shared” self.

    • I think you are right. Facebook and Twitter have millions of dedicated followers already. However, I can see how Google would love all of us to use all of and only their tools.

    • I think Google want to replace Facebook and Twitter, but they have been a bit slow as like you, I am sure most people (including me) aren’t keen for yet another place.
