Maybe I’m insane.
Maybe I woke up this morning with a cat paw entwined in my hair, and a curtain draped across my face.
But that doesn’t mean I can’t have opinions. Google+ is just looking less and less attractive to me. I’m spending basically no time there anymore. It’s like a long distance relationship. Facebook and Twitter are flaunting their magic bits at me, and Pinterest is wearing a mankini.
I just can’t ignore the facts for another day. I’m going to have to break up with Google+. It’s boring, and the little things that made it fun in the beginning are starting to irritate me. I can’t be the only one. I fear, that many Google+ relationships will end in the near future.
I refuse to stay with Google+ just because I’m friends with the rest of the Google family. I may be ostracized from the social media community for saying this, or set adrift on a little red raft with a sail that reads, ‘sucktard,’ but I’m going to have to take that risk.
The truth is that Google+ is boring. The people there, are like little grains of salt, attempting to remove its all encompassing blandness. But like thick soup that has already been served, the salt only reminds you how bland it was to begin with.
There is so much white everywhere. I have nothing against the color white personally, except that it always ends up another color in my washing machine – but there’s something sinister about all that darn white. It’s not just me, Jay Dolan feels the same.
It’s like being in a virtual hospital ward for mental patients. And I’m sick of scrolling. It’s bad enough that I have to type all day, but now Google expects me to develop man-sized scrolling muscles in my fingers. I never have to look that far on Facebook or Twitter to find posts interesting enough to read.
When I’m with Google+ it feels like I’m being chaperoned by a hundred other people that have very little interest in being there. It’s one dimensional city, and we’re all stuck on the same tragically muddy interstate going nowhere.
Just because something’s good for you, doesn’t mean you’re going to like it. Google+ is so clingy, once you’re logged in – it shadows your every move on the internet – I can’t stand it anymore!
I think I’ve finally found the courage to say, Google+, I’m dumping you. We can still be friends, but that’s it.
Oh and – It’s not me, it’s you.
Does anyone else feel this way?
