Comments on: Facebook is facing the music — is Google calling the tune? http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2011/08/26/facebook-google-calling-tune/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: lakawak http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2011/08/26/facebook-google-calling-tune/#comment-390271 Sat, 27 Aug 2011 08:02:08 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=28940#comment-390271 Surprisingly successful? Really? 4 weeks of sign ups (but no actual users) and then 5 weeks of FALLING traffic (and hardly any new sign ups) is successful?

Facebook it not in the slightest bit worried about Google+. Since June 29, they have signed up MORE new users than Google+ has. They had the best month EVER in July. And Facebook’s popularity is INCREASING while Google+’s is already spiraling downward.

Enough with these paid for advertisements for Google+.

Google makes its money on selling your personal information that you may or may not have willingly given them. For that reason, I would never ever use Google+, nor will I use Android OS. I also refuse to use Google maps, search and will only use Google Earth on a public computer.

Facebook, is well, a joke too. I do not need or want to share my life with the outside world. Any sharing with family and friends will be done directly. I also have grave security concerns about Facebook after my son’s business page got hacked.

Social networking is a fad that will leave us. Buy Facebook’s stock, only for a very short term investment if at all.

Sadly, there is powerful technology under all those layers of blatant disrespect. Facebook and Google+ are both fresh booze that need many years in an oak barrel to learn the meaning of smoothness.
