On July 8, I went on the Google+ Diet, using Google’s new social network for all my online communication. As part of the diet, I stopped using Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and several other services. I even stopped using e-mail.
As I explained in my column last week, the purpose of the experiment was to see if consolidating and streamlining all social activity into Google+ was possible and, if so, desirable. (You can follow my experiment here, even if you’re not a Google+ member.)
I was able to answer my two questions on day one of my Google+ Diet. Yes, it’s possible, and yes, it’s desirable. –via Elgan: What I lost on the Google+ Diet – Computerworld.
