Writing in the WIRED, Tim Carmody describes Google+ as “half Trojan horse and half battering ram,” forewarning members that it’s more than a “database of profile pages.”
Social networks don’t work that way anymore, just as PCs aren’t stuck with sorting and saving local files in folders.
Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Twitter aren’t just providing you with the digital equivalent of your mailing address, but also your driver’s license, passport, car keys, and credit cards.
What’s in store for Google+ in the future?
Right now, it’s easy to share links, pictures, location, and videos on Google+. Soon, it’ll be equally easy to share maps, office documents, news, and shopping deals.
