I don’t understand people immediately leaping to other social media platforms — g+ isn’t slated to close for 10 months, and a lot can happen during that time. Indeed I will be trying as many different platforms as I can in the next few months, but I am certainly not going to commit to anything. Not only will things change, but I will undoubtedly change as well, as I think about what I really want.
Update: Google screwed us all over; closing is now April instead of August, with potential partial service loss even earlier. Their handling of this is crude and callous.
