Google won%u2019t go away | TechCrunch. Facebook friends, I love you. I love my relatives, my high school acquaintances, my immediate family (usually), and the friends of my Facebook "friends". However, I don't have a lot in common with most of you. Our connections are related to blood, or place, or time of life, and you each have your separate lives. I hate your political rants, I hate (or love) your food, and I envy you the trips, vacations, and wonderful life you lead. However, if I want to commiserate with like minded people, who love tech, and photography, and Shakespeare, and gadgets, I go to Google+, where they hang out. So, call me happy that Google is working on upgrades and updates to Google+, the social networking platform for people you really like. I don't care if your thing is collecting rug fibers; you will find some people there who like the same weird stuff you do. And, some of them live on the other side of the world, and you would never meet them otherwise. So, get thee to Google+, and communicate with like minds.
