Using Google+ & Diaspora for SL


Earlier this month I was invited to join Google+ which aims to make sharing on the web more like sharing in real life. I like the Google+ user interface, the feed wall and the circles feature. There have been alot of SL buzz this month of Google+ suspending SL avatar accounts that signed up this month. This is not good news at all and many know already Facebook purged SL avatar accounts earlier in the year. Again these are new alternatives to Facebook etc if you want to try something new out.


Today I was invited to join the new Diaspora which is a social network that puts you in control of your information. This looks very similar to Google+ and it’s currently in alpha right now (invite-only). You will need to ask around to receive a invite to sign up. I’m still finding my way around Diaspora and it’s going to take some time to get used to. There have mentions of security problems recently and insecurity apparently.

What are your thoughts of Google+ and Diaspora ?
