re: Google+: Should You Have A 'Frenemies' Circle?
Over the next few years as competition heats up among social networking sites such as Google+, Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin. Content, features, and services will be important but the two most important deciding factors will be Privacy, and the sharing of Ad Revenue.
Privacy regardless of social and/or information is not as protected as most people think on social networking sites such as Google+ & Facebook. If you have an email address or real name, there are companies today who are able to track this information. Most search engines that crawl these sites are able to atleast get Jane Doe's User Name.
Both Google+, Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin have excellent privacy settings, and different ways to protect it's users privacy, but both fail to address the real issues at hand.
The real issues most people have today about privacy is the amount of information these sites are collecting about its users, the way this information is being collected, and how this information is being used.
One thing that social networking sites today don't want to tell you, is that any site can be hacked! The only way for sites to combat this problem is to not ask itGÇÖs users to provide their real names, and email addresses.
As to the sharing of Ad Revenue, there is only one site today that allows itGÇÖs users to place their own Ads on both personal & business profiles.
ONLYMEWORLD is less the 20% complete, and may not be as savvy as some of the other social networking sites, but early on seem to realize that Privacy and the sharing of Ad Revenue is paramount to both longevity & success in the industry. Their platform is similiar to Facebook, Google+, Twitter, and Linkedin, yet differ because of their willingness to protect itGÇÖs users privacy, and the sharing of ad revenue. The best part...ItGÇÖs Absolutely Free!
