Google introduced their social network in a blog post on the main Google Blog four years ago today with this introduction:
There’s been a lot of changes in the last four years. Of late we’ve seen the introduction of ‘Collections’ letting you compartmentalise parts of your social feed so your followers can follow certain aspects of your stream if they want. We’ve also seen parts being removed from Google+ like Photos. But, according to Bradley Horowitz, even though there’s been some features removed – Google+ isn’t going anywhere – but they will be focusing more on the community aspect, something that Google+ excels at.
At Ausdroid, we love our Google+ page, which has 1,772 followers and had 3,449,950 views – but we’d love more ;). Our Ausdroid Google+ community, with all the 333 members is a happening place, with all our members fairly active, tipping us with awesome news and availability of products and great sales.
Google+ is far from the ‘dead platform’ that some people in media like to make out, but, as far as we’re concerned and there’s a lot to see in Google+ and we can’t wait to see what happens in the future.
