With the launch of Google+, it adds another social network you must update. As such, I am obviously on Google+ but have been lacking on updates. Not because I don't believe in the network, but because I don't believe they are there yet.
If there was an easy way to update my Google status I would be all for it (knock knock socialscope).
And obviously if your not updating it, you should let your friends know that there is alternative ways for them to reach ya. This way if your friends or acquaintances do end up utilizing Google+ heavily, they will be aware that your not and that they can reach you on other networks.
Another thing you won't see me doing is promoting my Google+ account heavily. Bottom line is, if your not going to be utilizing it, don't promote that you are going to be using it.
For those new to social media, you are not required to be on every network. Of course, the more the merrier but stick to the ones your gonna actually utilize.
