What the hell is google plus?

I somehow have it, not sure how?


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

its a facebook-like social networking site.
It had an interesting birth, surge of interest, and very rapid decline as facebook countered it with more features.
I would be surprised if many people still use it.
kind regards,

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,

I personally see a lot of activity from DhammaWheel members on google plus. Bhante Samahita posts multiple times a day and I see others as well. :coffee:

, but I am not as active there because most of my friends are on Facebook. :-/ I think Google had some very lofty aspirations with the "Plus" site but was unable to compete with Facebook's already massive user base...
