I'm a futurist with a foot in the past. Talking about technology and gadgets are my passions...and I'm a huge nerd when it comes to comics. If you can imagine a kid from the 1940's who sat by the radio listening to tales of heroes in the future while reading comic books and wishing they had Dick Tracey's watch...that's me.
Google+ looks awesome! I like Facebook but I can REALLY see me using this: Circles seems like the next evolution of Facebook Groups and Twitter lists, Huddle is group messaging tied into a social network (unlike current group messaging apps), Sparks is a content discovery and sharing feature, Hangout is the group video chat which NO ONE is doing, and Instant Upload is instant photo cloud storage. It has all the ingredients to make it successful…except no one is using it yet.
True. It just came out and is closed beta. But the real test is going to come when it’s open for the public to use. The question is: will people come from Facebook to use this?
