This is a question I find myself coming back to often. As longer form sharing starts to move to central platforms like Google+, should we be migrating our activities to where our friends’ eyeballs are? I dig what Google has done with plus. I think they’re opening the door for longer form content sharing in a way that Facebook or other social networks haven’t. From an interaction standpoint, posting to Google+ generates far more discussion, feedback and attention in real time (that’s been my experience so far). The flip side is that in the long term, you don’t really own your longer posts and after only a short time, they disappear into the stream, never to be found again. I suppose it comes down to personal preference and whether you’d rather have more real-time conversations than build a library of articles that you own and control.
To those of you who have subscribed to this blog, how would you rather consume long form (for this blog)? Thoughts or opinions either way?
