All things considered, I’m an irregular blogger with writing peaks followed by a looong silence.I guess changing continents last year, settling my family in their new environment can explain this, in part.
I enjoy exploring the latest sharing platforms but sooner than later, I end up focussing on 2 or 3. A word on Google plus, or rather Goo minus. From the outset, I was very excited to try out this platform which was a way to help us forget the buzz flop. Soon after, my excitement wound down. Who wants to manage circles or subsets of subsets of subsets in..your free time? I remember giving up on my Twitter lists some short time after it was launched. Isn’t it challenging enough to manage your life balance between work, family and friends? Adding on the task of granular tagging just makes engaging less attractive.
My Sharing Pattern on G+
On G+, I now accept most people as contacts after a “background” check (respectful posts, no profanity, etc..). I created a “public” tag and my posts run through that pipeline. That’s it, that’s all. After all, like most of us, I embarked on social networks to engage in conversations and see what’s cooking here and everywhere around the world, to get the knowledge curve growing.
