I’ve been toying with the idea of ditching G+ for a while now, and reading Woodsiegirl’s post this morning gave me the final push I needed to get on and do it.
I’ve already blogged about the G+ ‘meh’ factor, and having given it a few weeks, I still can’t see the niche that G+ was meant to occupy in my online social life.
I was uncomfortable with the number of random people who added me to their circles, and the odd way G+ handles your relationships with people who have added you to their circles even though you haven’t added them to yours (they can still see all of your public data. Which may not be much, but I still don’t want them there, and it seemed a bit harsh to block them).
Although I try not to litter the internet with my personal information in the first place, I realised that if I’ve set up and account somewhere and have decided that the service is not for me, it’s probably best to delete it, even if only so that anyone following/friending/circling (?) me knows that I’ve gone from that site.
