Lots of people have a tech company preference: Mac v. Apple, Internet Explorer v. Mozilla’s Firefox v. Chrome, Windows v. Linux, etc., etc., etc.
I am no exception. The love of my tech life is Google. I prefer Google Docs to MS Office or Open Office and Drop Box. Gmail to Hotmail or Yahoo. I use Google Voice. My website is run with Google Sites. If they introduce Google Chip, inserted directly into your brain, I’ll be first in line for the beta test.
That being said, I’m on Google+ right now. And honestly, at this point in time, I’m not sure why. Granted I haven’t had much time lately to play around with it (moving and sporadic internet and out of town for new job training and spending time with my kid before he goes back to school), but from what I’ve seen Facebook seems like it’s a better medium for an up-and-coming writer, especially considering the ease with which you can integrate a blog and Twitter account.
On the other hand, a lot of people seem to really like Google+. Are you there? Follow me over there at http://gplus.to/edmartinwriter. What do you think of it so far?
