Great article. Facebook is clearly taking the web in a new direction and Google+ might just be the answer Google had been waiting to give their market shares the boost to become the clear dominant force on the internet once more.
We shall see..
That is what I am hoping for… Facebook is dominant in the social networking domain.. it would be interesting to see how people react to it when G+ is open to all… Maybe we see news of Facebook traffic dropping 😉
Google appears to be focusing on segmentation by organizing around “circles,” allowing an easy way to target particular posts to friends, family, colleagues, etc. In fact you can do this on Facebook as well, but Facebook lists are not as easy to find or edit; nor are they as easy to view as a separate stream.
You are right… selective sharing is what I have liked the most.. 🙂
