@Gargron Linus Torvalds was an active user of G+. Would be funny if he ends up here...
@Gargron A connected education group that I am part of has had a space there for years .. 3,000 plus members ... not always active ... so, it was used. And it was useful for our purpose. Don't worry. I won't direct them all here.
@Gargron @ellavescent It was big with the tech community, mostly. People really into Android, mainly. Communities of fans for certain apps. People who hated Twitter and Facebook but didn't know of any alternatives. Brazilians migrating from Orkut. It had its niches. And it *was* technically superior to several other networks, in certain ways. It just suffered from network effects and from mismanagement.
