So you all have heard about Google+, right?
It's this new social media site that is supposedly Facebook's younger, hotter sister. (According to Charlie.)
I've spent the last few days fiddling with it, and during that time, I've done a lot of reminiscing about that heady spring 2005 day (or 2004? I'm getting old...) when a sorority sister showed me this thing called "The Facebook."
It took me all of 5 minutes to master.
And yet here I sit, typing a blog post because I can't figure out how to "share what's new" (Google+'s version of Facebook's, "What's on your mind?"). Either this site is ridiculously hard to use despite its pointlessness, or I have crossed that invisible barrier beyond which all technology becomes incomprehensible, like my dad hanging up a cell phone call by putting the phone down.
Am I missing something, friends? After all, I didn't jump on the Twitter train, and that actually turned out to be a thing, so I wouldn't especially take my word for it if I were you.
* Yeah, everything comes out in puppy-speak now. When the guy at the drive-thru gets my order right, I have to fight the urge to say, "Good boy! Who's a good boy? You're a good boy!"
