Why do you love Google+?
This is a question I asked the community and here are just a few of their responses!
There are some great views here and I thank everyone for contributing to this exercise in celebration of Google+’s 3rd anniversary.
Having spent the past couple of years living on Google+, I’ve noticed myself responding when certain things do and don’t happen. As such, here is a blog post with a collection of ‘Whys’.
I thought it would be fun to see what could happen in Google Search too.
“Why didn’t you click my comment?”
This is something I am guessing many people may well relate.
When you comment on someone’s thread you are trying to get their attention; and when they don’t give it to you, you may wonder ‘why’. “What is wrong with my comment?” “Wasn’t it funny enough?” “Why didn’t you just click it?” “Why? Why?!”
And there we have it. It is all about acknowledgement. And sure, we would probably rather a reply to the comment, but a plus would have done nicely.
It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been on Google+, these things still matter to you when they matter to you.
Check out this quick clip on ‘Why’ and the how it came about.
Then Joshua extracted this section ‘click the button’:
I will keep building this post in waves of ‘why’ as myself and the community members are experimenting with whether the why can appear high in Google Search! More soon…
