Networking Nuisances, See What Google is Doing NOW! Where do you spend all your time?
Do you have Nuisances in your Network, Are they wires that are all tangled or people that get together, or platforms that you use to communicate with?
Wouldn’t it just be great to have everything in one place and be able to use it with ease?
Networks can be made up of all sorts of things. How we lay them out is up to us.
Some would say that it is connecting with others of like minded ideas. Gathering groups of people who have the same thoughts and ideas. Some others see it as collecting photos, articles, new clips, videos and all your other details of your life.
Where do you keep all of it and how do you share all of it?
It can be people working together, people who like the same things and want to share. It can be things that people like to do together. Can you get together in the same room, or gather on the internet?
You can think of networking as pulling a system together and connecting it with cords so everything can communicate and keep in touch.
When you try to pull your network together where do you turn?
Have you ever used Outlook.com, Dropbox, EverNote, or Google?
I find myself spending more time looking for what I saved to use later, than actually using it? What a network nuisance!
Looking for my objects I came across a few articles that may be of use to you as you search for your network.
Google+ as We Knew It Is Dead, But Google Is Still a Social Network
Don’t write the obituary yet. It would be a mistake to call this a retreat, or an admission of failure. This is actually Google doing what Google does best: relentlessly optimizing its products based on data and feedback. There’s a small but very dedicated core of Google+ users, for whom Streams will now simply be a cleaner, more focused product.
I have found that Gmail for email is a great wonder, I love the fact that we can share our calendar, notes and contacts with our family and friends. Boy has that saved me many times when I need to get a hold of a loved one and I could see where they were on the schedule so that is why they did not answer their phone.
Why Photos Rule The Internet
And the simple reason why Google+ failed to catch fire.
The answer to the question of why Google+ failed is simple. It’s the reason why any social network succeeds or fails. The answer is photos. It finds your best pictures for you, it’s amazingly searchable, it auto-generates highlight films and cool photos albums, and it even turns your burst shots into animated GIFs. Fancy! But all of that came far too late in its history. The big mistake Google+ made was in starting out as a place for people to have meaty in-depth discussions.
It’s easy to see how Google+ came at this from the wrong direction. Google+ promised better organization and the ability to build more meaningful communities. It was about optimizing the connections that you’ve already made through a cumbersome sorting process. Rather than allowing people to subconsciously construct communities through the sharing of their lives — be it a 10,000-foot survey of one’s life, a daily check-in, or a constant, real-time update — Google+ sought to build a community through the laborious task of…well, building a community.
Google’s Next Telecom Move: Becoming a Wireless Carrier
Google is preparing to sell mobile phone plans directly to customers and manage their calls and mobile data over a cellular network, according to three people with knowledge of the plans.
The new service is expected run on Sprint and T-Mobile’s networks, two people familiar with the product say. Google is expected to reach deals to buy wholesale access to those carriers’ mobile voice and data networks, making it a mobile virtual network operator, or MVNO, they say.
What a Network Nuisance!
It is fun to watch all the new technology and how the competition is trying to out do the others.
My lesson for you today:
Pick a Network, get to know how that Network works. Get your groups to join and see how it flows. Are others responding to it? What do others think of it?
If it becomes a Nuisance for you, move to the next one and test it out. When you find a Platform that you like, keep it, grow it, and share it with others.
Don’t waste your time with Networks that can be a Nuisance.
