In this corner we have the Juggernaut known as Google with their little known, but far superior service called Plus and in this corner we have Goliath also known as Facebook… Let’s get ready (I can’t say the last part because of this sentence because of this shocking find)…
So here it is, the battle of the social networking sites. Google has attempted before to hop on the social networking bandwagon, anyone remember Orkut? Jaiku? Wave?Friend Connect? Buzz? Google you have failed, time and time again at social networking, so why is it NOW we are to join the Plus you’ve concocted?
Simplicity, no not the vacuum bags we sell, but as a Google Plus user I can say it’s a lot easier then the other flops before. In fact it’s my opinion that Google should be proud they have never given up on social networking and it seems that from their failed attempts before, they’ve learned what to do, but more importantly what not to do.
It’s almost like they just got done watching the movie The Social Network and want back to the whiteboard and wrote down what they feel is cool based off Justin Timberlakes (mostly fictional) character.
Don’t announce you’re creating Google Plus, let bloggers gossip about it… that’s cool. Don’t let people join, they must be invited… that’s cool. After someone finally gets an invite, don’t let them in right away… that’s cool. No, that ain’t cool and quite frankly I’m starting to channel Paris Hilton saying that’s hot, so before I carry around a Taco Bell dog let me point out how dumb it is Google. Not letting people in with an invite is like being the said socialite on a VIP list at a club and not letting her in the door (wait, maybe it’s a good idea after all).
Nonetheless, your dragging out this grand opening… its been months already. I’ve had the account and only have about 15 people in my circles and the last time someone else posted to their wall was a week ago.
Facebook can’t even touch Google Plus from a WOW factor, Google Plus is far superior, but you know what Google? Facebook has something you don’t… people!
So open the doors already! I’m on the Google train and armed with Google TV, Gmail, an Android tablet and soon I’ll be trading in the Blackberry for an Android phone. Pull it all together Google and I’ll be your Google poster boy, but as of now I’m a loner on a social network!?!?
I’m not worried though, for I have something special. You see my “friends” not all Google Plus invites are created the same. I was denied with my first 3 invites, but a fellow geek friend of mine gave me a 1st generation invite, the only golden ticket that gets you in without a wait. That got me 150 invites to give away. I’ve only used about 10, so I have an idea.
It’s me vs my boss (you know your job is awesome when you can call your boss out in online and get away with it, especially when he stands 6’5!). In the short time I’ve written this blog I have 100 Facebook likes as of now. The main company website that sells Miele bags and other parts is GoVacuum.com and they have exactly 100 likes as well.
So here we go… if you enjoy reading this blog and if you Facebook like my blog I’ll send you a golden ticket to Google Plus or if you Facebook like our company website GoVacuum.com I’ll still send you one. Just email me… that’s it!
Here it is, me vs my boss in the battle of social networking… let’s see who likes, who more (in the event I get fired for this idea the email address will be void, so hurry up and email me your Google Plus request already)!
So how much better can Google Plus be then Facebook? Email me for a free invite, no purchase required, I will only send 1 invite per email, email@example.com Do you have an idea for a blog or just wanna sound off? Know how to file for unemployment? Email me!
