I'm on Google+ But Probably Not For Much Longer

Google plus logoI am now on Google+, but don't get too excited. I think it is unlikely that I will stick with it. Honestly, I have virtually now idea how (or if) it would make sense to try and integrate it into my online atheist empire. What I see many people doing with it is just posting their blog posts, and that is the last thing that makes sense to me for this service. Now it seems that Google has been deleting accounts in which users are not using their real names. That counts me out.

Google+ seems to have potential, and I imagine it will be especially useful for those who want to share information with diverse audiences (e.g., sending atheist content to one group, tech content to another group, etc.) as long as they are okay with their real names being attached to everything. I could imagine it replacing other services for some. Of course, that isn't going to happen until Google opens the doors and allows everyone in.

For those of you who are not yet on Google+, I wouldn't worry too much about it. At this point, I view it as a novelty more than anything else. I think it has potential but that it is going to take some time and additional development to reach it.
