How Google+ beats Facebook & Twitter
Robert Scoble on why it's more interesting on Google+ than Twitter or Facebook: because it's for finding, and talking with, the people who are interested in the same thing you are.
What's the Latest Development?
Robert Scoble explains why it's more interesting on Google+ than Twitter or Facebook yet why they'll never compete. "Google+ is for finding, and talking with, the people who are interested in the same thing you are." Facebook and Twitter are not good places to do that. "We're scaling up a knowledge base here together."
What's the Big Idea?
Google has not explained it well to the tech press but with time people will figure out the real value of Google+ when compared to Twitter and Facebook, predicts Scoble. "Eventually they will see the power of the search engine here. Eventually the brands and the other Google users (apps anyone?) will show up."
