That I find strange/odd/bizarre.
I can’t quite put my finger on it so thought maybe you could help.
For some reason, when someone I don’t know follows me on Twitter, I don’t think much of it. I reason that
a) I said something that was interesting
b) They auto-follow based on keywords
c) I was suggested to them
Which is fine. I actively participate on Twitter so it’s normal. And if someone puts me in a public list, I can see it.
Now on Google +, I haven’t done much more than put up a profile pic and the occasional comment,mainly about how I don’t know what do to there and have only shared it with my existing circles.
Yet, I keep getting circled. By men.
Apart from the people I know that have added me to circles, I keep getting ‘circled’ by random men. And yes, if you look closely there is a fake Hugh Jackman that has been making the rounds..or circles.
I’m kind of curious to know what they are circling me in?
Person who hasn’t said anything but may eventually say something interesting?
Is it really true that there are ‘no girls on Google Plus‘ as indicated by a recent Forbes article? Or do women just not go around circling random people? Mashable has even gone so far as to call it a “sausagefest”.
Perhaps men are quicker to make the land-grab while us women observe and wait to see if it’s really worth spending our time on?
I think Google + is that grey area between Facebook and Twitter, which we’re all trying to figure out.
I did come across something I liked about it recently. The ability to share links to public discussions such as this one, which isn’t something you can do on Facebook unless you’re already friends or like the same page where the discussion is happening. So maybe there is a place for Google + in all this.
Are you on Google+? What has your experience been so far?
