Being an aggressive macho male doesn’t mean that you will always get the girl, for the fainthearted do also have a good chance of winning the heart of the desired.
Sounds like Google’s recent wave of shoving Google+ towards our neck and shoulders, right?
Google+ entered the social media landscape to much fanfare a year or 2 ago, but it certainly didn’t take long for it’s momentum to come to a screeching halt.
Even after getting the mobile app platforms outfitted for it’s Android platform and Apple’s iOS system, it appeared as though there were big plans for it. But Google+ has since gone by the wayside after only 8 months, and the big boys at Google seem determined to force their social media service on us like a date with bad breath trying to get close to you when you have other options on your mind.
It hasn’t helped that the public continually refer to this platform as ‘ghosttown+’ and make it difficult for casual consumers to get a real feel for the platform. Now, it remains to be seen if there is anything they can do to reverse its fortunes at this point.
The easiest way to get Google+ back on track would be to have some of its features integrated with Youtube (also owned by Google). While its popularity isn’t likely to lead anywhere, it needs to get involved in the mix with other Google-owned brands that doesn’t make it look like when Daphne Maxwell Reid replaced Janet Hubert-Whitten as Aunt Viv on the hit TV series “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”
If it does that, then perhaps it will give the public something to grasp rather than them constantly starting the ‘ghosttown+’ talk. Once Google does that and gains a bit of traction, I wouldn’t mind seeing Hangouts become more of a streaming option than Youtube.
I doubt that Youtube will have any integration with Google+, so even if it doesn’t ever win the public over, Google+ has the look and the ability to be a solid social media player, provided the necessary steps are taken.
