Why Facebook Will No Longer Be my Primary Social Media Site

And Google+ will be.

First, I’m really weary of Facebook constantly changing things around.  Just when I get the hang of how some feature works, they change it.

Second, I am utterly disgusted with their latest accessibility fiasco.  To be specific, before their latest update I could easily select groups which could view posts.  Now, if I want to interact with a limited number of people, I have to type in their names or type in the names of those I wish to exclude from a particular conversation.  I find that idiotic.

Third, I can do with Google+ exactly what I wish to do in terms of specific communications.  Facebook seems to want to make it as hard as possible to be specific in communications and Google + seems to want to make it as easy as possible.  I know which I prefer.

So I’ll still check in on Facebook and post generalities from time to time, but for real interaction, I’m moving over to G+ from now on.

I have 132 invites left for G+.  You’re welcome to one.

    In line with the strict Google Plus ‘real names’ policy, are you now known as James rather than your pseudonym Jim?

    I’ve been considering this some, but none of my family and friends have tried Google+ yet. Guess I’ll have to send them an invite!

  3. Bye bye Jim…I will be the last to leave FB. Mark Zuckerberg will leave me to turn the lights out. 😉
