Yesterday I posted the following on Google Plus:
What I’m starting to see is that Google+ could actually (and I know this sounds crazy) replace blogging for many people.
I made this comment after posting what I think qualifies as a blog post, and wondered how Google Plus would compete with blogging platforms – in addition to Facebook, Twitter, Quora and LinkedIn.
What followed (and you can see this for yourself) was a lively discussion on content ownership, the extent to which other platforms have (and haven’t) replaced other social platforms, and what “blogging” means in the first place.
My prediction is that Google Plus will be used instead of traditional blogging platforms for many people (not all), if you define blogging as:
- Anything that expresses a (somewhat) complete idea.
- And allows people to comment on that idea…
- And allows people to have rich discussions among each other…
- And the internet is involved somehow.
The original thread and discussion is here. If you’re on Google+, please comment there. Otherwise comment below.
