"Despite his misgivings about what Google cast aside to make Google+ a reality, Whittaker (Microsoft-turned-Google engineer James Whittaker -- now once again a Microsoft employee)thinks that the social network was worth a shot. If it had worked -- if Google had dramatically changed the social Web for the better -- it would have been a heroic gamble.
But it didn't. It's too early to write Google+ off, but the site is developing a reputation as a ghost town. Google says 90 million people have signed up, but analysts and anecdotal evidence show that fairly few have turned into heavy users.
'Google was the rich kid who, after having discovered he wasn't invited to the party, built his own party in retaliation," Whittaker wrote. "The fact that no one came to Google's party became the elephant in the room.' "
What do you think? Is Google+ a ghost town?
I'm with you on that David. Thank you.
An interesting update to this conversation. I read an interesting article by Cotton Delo on AdAge called, "Google+ a Ghost Town as Brands Decamp for Pinterest". Suggested reading. http://adage.com/article/digital/google-a-ghost-town-brands-decamp-...
