Lately I have read a lot of articles about Googles new Google + integration of your Gmail account. While I understand peoples worries over security I don't understand the miss-direction. The articles turn into a hate fest on Google + social network. If you spend any time with the site, app or the people it might change your mind. I have long been accused of being a Google fanboy, yet I wouldn't give up my Mac Book Pro or iPhone period. Google has a great things going with the content on Google + and it should be taken as a new form of social media. People try it and say it's not Facebook or Twitter then give up. The same thing was said about Twitter when it started. Facebook fans said it's just like Facebook but not as good. Now people are moving from Facebook to Twitter. Google + is more for videos, pictures and Gif's and interesting fans from almost anything you can think about. The posts are user generated and nicely displayed in the stream. Just wanted to put my voice in the mix for turn off the email feature and give Google + time and I'm sure it will grow on you.
