I keep seeing test posts from friends saying “who can see this” and “can you reshare that”, “please comment if you see this post”, "do you see my in-stream +1 in your search results" and whatnot. A million questions are raised and everyone tries to figure out the answers. On top of that, I keep thinking I would need a better noise control in my stream and intelligent filters beyond circles; I find myself fantasizing about features that would allow this and prevent that from happening. As unimaginable as it was to me to bring my parents to Facebook, it is just as unimaginable to bring them to Google+.
It is way too early to judge, but from what I see, at the moment, social networking online is still so complex, Google+ can’t be the ultimate answer. Maybe it will turn out to be the best we had up to now. But it just brings us closer to the right questions - not to the answers of how social networking online should really be.
