The insult is the implication that no one uses Google+, thus only nobodies would actually be there.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Only if you're sitting there naked and you need a piece of paper under you so that you don't stick to the birch. And if it's hot enough that it hurts to breathe, since these are Finnish saunas and not the wimpy Swedish ones.
I'm not on Facebook. It's for the masses. I don't follow fashion and prefer to think for myself. I don't see anything on Facebook that I would want to participate in. The most I would get out of it is to hear some news about distant relatives.
It may be theoretically possible to have a social media site that's not horrible, but we're still waiting for the evidence to come in.
Sadly, Google+ seems to have been overwhelmed by political flamewar postings ever since the last election. There's no way to filter that crap out except by turning off all Hot-and-Recommended posts, and some are interesting.
Which sounds good. The inane and idiotic comments are the worst part of Youtube.
I want to divorce myself from Youtube, a horrible service for horrible people, but Google wants to tie my social service to it.
Now if you seem to be insulted by my saying thing, think how the Google+ users feel insulted by what you say.
I don't really understand. Why would anyone sane want to comment on a Youtube video? The comments are the worst part of the service, dominated overwhelmingly by trolls.
Not if you're blocking cookies and using noscript. I *do* want a google+ account, but I don't want Picassa or Youtube. I'm sick of people treating Google+ as the bad buy here, point fingers at Google instead.
The annoying part is that they forced that idiotic Youtube crap on Google+ users.
I'm not on Facebook. I may never be on Facebook. But I have lots of friends, real life ones, on LinkedIn and Google+.
A sauna is like exercising, in that it's hot, uncomfortable, and you sweat too much. But the advantage is that you get to sit down and do nothing.
These aren't spas. In Finland, people have them in their homes, sometimes at work, I even had one in a hotel room. Even for a commercial sauna the cost is very low.
Now we can go back to worrying about the bankers in charge of banking regulations.
Municipal electric utilities have sprung up for some time, but they're still relatively uncommon despite the benefits. I suspect it will be similar for internet utilities.
And of course, if Comcast charges $75/month and the city charges only $25, some people will still whine about it because it's the evil government charging the $25.
