I have been playing with Google+ for a week and it reminds me of the early days of Facebook, Twitter and several other social networks.
One of my guiding principles has been to try just about everything and to abandon anything that doesn’t work out, which is why the Internet is littered with my accounts.
I have made more social networking mistakes than I care to list, and as I dive into Google+ I am being a bit more cautious than I have been in the past because I know what a time-suck social websites can be.
One of the biggest mistakes I have made on social networks is having hundreds of friends who I don’t know. Part of the problem is that I never took a proactive approach to the whole friendship thing.
My friends will tell you that is because I am not a people person. I only know a small percentage of my Facebook friends and I actually like six of them. I don’t use my Facebook account for business. I know that I am a Realtor all of the time, but I want and need a social life that has nothing to do with work.
