Social Mania

Google Plus just reached 10 million users in a few weeks. The online socialites were craving for an invite, just not to miss out on a sharing opportunity. And all this while lots of people are still 'afraid of sharing' and privacy is still an issue; even in higher Circles (be sure to check your photo settings when building a G+ profile, or your snapshot might just end up on a postcard stand).

Also it's Yet Another Social Network, where it's easy to setup a profile, harder to continuously share relevant information and tough to get and keep a following. It's a Catch-22: you have to be in to be credible and once you are in, you can only lose credibility by being too involved or not involved enough. And this applies to all the currently 'hot' social networks.


My best advice: stay in motion, like these log-rollers, and outlast the competition (if only for a few moments).
