Google is amazing, THIS is a fact that most of us working folks, especially those of us who are, most of the time, mobile and on the move, have to admit. Yes, we have Dropbox for cloud file sharing and what not. Yes, we have email to send stuff to each other. Yes, we have Facebook and Twitter for when we need to connect with people, family and friends but at the end of the day, when it comes to ONE single platform that enables an efficient working life, there is no one else other than Google. We love Google Docs.
On a personal level, my kid asked me what B.C. and A.D. stands for and for the life of me, I can’t remember what A.D. (verbatim) stands for and thank goodness for the existence of Google, I found out that it stands for Anno Domini (source: http://rcg.org/questions/p104.a.html) which means the year of the Lord.
We have a lot of be thankful for.
But if there was something that we see Google lacking in, it would be Google Plus. G+, as we lovingly refer to it, is so underutilized that it is kind of sad. While we see Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook all racing ahead of the pack, Google remained quite ‘contented’ in developing, promoting and pushing forward for G+ and yet, they promised that they were looking into the future of G+ and stuff. But still, we waited.
In recent months, I would have to say that we are finally seeing some of their plans coming into fruition. For Android and Blogger users, the instant ‘post to G+’ is hard to miss…well, it is because it comes in a quite ‘in your face’ way.
And then a couple of weeks back, Google made another announcement that they were upping the ante for G+ on the social front (yes, what other fronts can we consider G+ under, right?) and apparently, they are going to integrate G+ into other social networking and game apps. You know the way you can sign into one of your apps or games using your Facebook or Twitter ID? Yup, I think that is what the Google team is looking at.
Honestly, that sounds quite fun!
