Google+: The Best Thing That Could Have Happened To Facebook (And Its Users)

We don’t often call out our blog posts in the news, but we thought this topic would be great to spur some discussion. J.D. just posted a little something in our Something Social blog titled, “Google+: The Best Thing That Could Have Happened To Facebook (And Its Users)”.

Some of the most common complaints regarding Facebook are related to its privacy settings and how cumbersome and sometimes confusing it is to alter them. Since the introduction of Google+, however, Facebook has made some major changes to the way it structures its privacy settings and how accessible they are. From the post, “Facebook went in a new direction based upon the threat that Google+ represents. Today, they announced sweeping changes to simplify and enhance user privacy. People will have more control over how they're tagged in photos and other content with a new feature that allows tags to be reviewed before going live. Perhaps more importantly, they made many of the privacy settings much easier to find.”

There are other details mentioned in the post as well. Check it out and let us know what you think and if Facebook’s changes will make you more or less likely to use the site...
