This weekend everyone was talking about Google+, the internet giant's social networking raspberry at Facebook. People pleaded for invites on Twitter from those lucky enough to be let into the inner sanctum of the field beta.
The thought of building it all up again on Google makes my head spin. I've just mastered how to create a Facebook fan page, have spent hours building up friends, and keep trying to stay on top of Facebook's ever-changing privacy setting. I'm a busy working mum and all this networking stuff takes A LOT of time.
It begs the question: how much social networking is too much?
Coupled with the news a few weeks ago that Facebook numbers have dropped recently in developed countries, it makes you wonder perhaps people are opting out in favour of more niche social networking sites (and less privacy headaches??).
Thoughts? Are you fed up with Facebook? Do you have time for Google+? Are you spending more time on more niche sites?
