Google plus adoption

Google+ has been the target of numerous jokes in the tech community. Many blogs claim that adoption has been minimal and that the product isn’t appealing to common users over alternatives such as Facebook.

I have noticed quite the opposite is true. Many of my extended family in the Czech Republic have somewhat recently acquired new Android devices. One by one, they have added me to their circles on Google+. My stream is now full of pictures that my parents, aunts and uncles took with their phones. Google uploads those pictures as soon as you take them and reminds you to share them. This interface is so simple that even the average joe can share their content online.

The way I see it, Google is doing something right.
