For a few years now the landscape of social media hasn’t been known for its variety in terrain. Myspace has become primarily a destination for music and not much else, and Friendster has turned into an online gaming site. Which, of course, left the only real landmark, the world-conquering time-waster known as Facebook. That is, right up until earlier this week. Google + opened to the public several days ago, and those of us not privy to a beta invite can now enter and explore what some claim to be a serious competitor to Zuckerberg and Co. In my opinion, there’s a problem viewing the two companies as a winner/loser scenario, since there’s more than enough room in the market for both of them to thrive.
