I have decided to give Google+ a week to prove to be useful. I haven't been very active on said service and I have high doubts on it's usefulness. I also don't really get it.

I've been on G+ since people could really invite other's there. Sometime last summer that was. But I haven't found any use for it.

"It's better [than Facebook]." That's what they tell me when I complain about how I don't get it. Yeah. I don't need another "better" Facebook. What's really the reason for me to use it? Why would I want to use Google+. That's what I'm going to try and find out myself, cause nobody has been able to tell me that.

I will be actively using Google+ for the following week. I will also post on G+ how my little experiment is going. So if you are there make sure to add me to your little circles to keep up with the progress.

Last week on tasselflower blog (eg. Weekly Wrapup)

Suomeksi (In Finnish): 

Koska kukaan ei ole kyennyt kertomaan minulle miksi minulla olisi syytä ja halua käyttää palvelua nimeltä Google+, olen päättänyt kokeilla sitä aktiivisesti viikon verran. Olen ollut ko. palvelussa viime kesästä asti, mutta en ole keksinyt sille mitään tarkoitusta. "Se on parempi [kuin Facebook]", on ilmeisesti ainoa vastaus mihin kukaan pystyy. En tarvitse toista "parempaa" Facebookia. Kokeilen nyt siis viikon ajan, että löydänkö plussan tarkoituksen. Jos satut olemaan Google+:n käyttäjä ja haluat seurata miten homma etenee, lisää minut ympyröihisi.
