My Top Six Reasons for Using Google+ Instead of the New Facebook

I have my top six reasons to use Google+ instead of the New Facebook, even though there is a lot of buzz that Facebook is about to roll out a new profile page format. Folks just did not like that Timeline! The new page is suppose to be cleaner and more compact. However, when I saw it for the first time, I immediately thought of Google+. 

The new design for the Facebook profile page will place all posts in a single column on the left, while activity updates, friends, places, apps and other sections are on the right.  Is it just me, or does that sound like Google+, which has its activity on the right column.

I was not too thrilled with the frontend of Google+ at the initial rollout. It just seemed so impersonal, scattered. The new layout is cleaner, and much more inviting.  I find myself spending more time on Google+ because I have better control of my ‘friends’, and who gets to see what information I post.

My Top Six Reasons for Using Google+ Instead of the New Facebook

  1. Google+ has no advertisements (yet)!
  2. Google+ shows more posts and you can control what you see.
  3. You don’t have to ask permission to follow people.
  4. It has Cool Hang Outs and On Air with Video Chatting Features.
  5. You can create many categories of Google+ Circles to place people!
  6. Reaching team members around the world is easy with collaboration.

Back to Facebook

The current format, a two-column layout, includes posts on both sides, forcing users to look back and forth. When Timeline rolled out site-wide last December, many complained that it was confusing. One Facebook page, “I hate FB Timeline, and want to disable it ASAP,” was started shortly after its launch, and now has nearly 26,000 likes.

In its new incarnation, Timeline no longer has the vertical line that divides a profile in half. This change, ironically, makes it look less like a timeline, according to Inside Facebook, which revealed the updated design. Clickable dates that help users navigate through profiles, however, are still listed on the top right.

Facebook is testing the new format with a “small percentage of users,” so don’t think about getting it for yourself, just yet. No body is talking.
