Google recently unleashed its answer to Facebook’s magnetic effect on the masses. In a sort of “me too” way, Google Plus (aka “G+”) has been greeted with open arms by the geekiest of early adopters and a flurry of attention by the uncaring media that only know that Google stuff is “kewl.”
So now we know that if Facebook suddenly botches it, screws the pooch or otherwise tanks so bad that people start leaving in droves (ala MySpace), we can set up camp with Google +, right? Well, sure but did you know that Microsoft and Yahoo!, not the media darlings that Google gets to be, have long been prepared to roll out the welcome mat to their similarly adorned social media hotels?
A quick scan of this feature matrix will leave no question about just how ready.
