The new Google products including Google Communities have been sort of a slow growth but those of us that relish in being a “beta tester” have already been on board. Until someone you know is using it then most likely you aren’t really interested. In the blogging world it would have to be someone really well known promoting it and then people begin to follow.
I’m getting a few invitations to these new communities. There are so many! Some are open to everyone and some you have to request to join. With all of the social sites available we just can’t be every where, we have to pick and choose. I have joined a few groups but I’m very selective not because I lack interest but I really lack the time to commit. I have to take care of my people in “real life” first! So what say you? Are you a manager? A member? Do you think this will fade like many of the Ning sites?
