I‘m a Google fanboy. Despite the company fumbling about privacy issues in the past year, I still enjoy using its products and services like Google Apps, Google Chrome and Android.
So when news broke out that it has recently launched its own social network, Google+, to go up against Facebook I decided to give it a try.
Unfortunately, the app cannot be downloaded and installed on my LG Optimus One because I’m in the Philippines. Second reason is that since I’m using a Google Apps account instead of a regular Google/Gmail account, I won’t be able to sign up even if I do get an invite.
It’s not just a bummer. It’s totally the wrong way to start a new social networking site/service that’s supposed to go against Facebook.
Google+ = FAIL
