How do YOU view Google Plus?
I became frustrated with Google+ quite a while ago. I still use it for sharing purposes etc, and have an account for more-or-less just social engagement, but I also have one for my website.
Anyway, through WA, of course I've added a lot of fellow members...and been added back etc. But what I find frustrating is that it's like pulling teeth to try and get anyone engaged in anything I post. Even getting "+1's" is extremely rare...let alone anyone actually commenting on a post. I've asked questions and TRIED to engage...but usually without any reciprocation.
I've posted funny pictures, things about this `n that and general stuff related to holidays and weather events, etc. I've also put several website posts on the social side as well. And still, 99.9% of the time...nothing...zilch...zip...nada.
Then it's kind of annoying that there are other G+ members (not WA folks) whom I consider a G+ acquaintance, who get plus's and comments with EVERYTHING they post! There's one guy, who all he has to do is post a picture of a piece of bacon, and get accolades for it!
Am I being too sensitive? Or is it just me?
Jay emphasizes how Google ranks us...and looks at our social engagement as a "ruler" of our success...but it's not our fault if we're posting and just not drawing the right kind of attention.
I'll admit, that when I go on there, the amount of content is overwhelming and I suppose people just skim through posts...just like on Facebook or any other SM site.
I'll also admit that I've been signing on less and less...because my efforts seem to be futile.
So, I'm just wondering what your take on the whole thing is? Thumbs up or down?
