Storytelling on Google+

Storytelling and Social Networks: Why Twitter Beats Google Plus is the title of an interesting article.

As it stands, the stories shared on Google Plus feel an awfully lot like blogging. As in, here's my story: feel free to comment. That's not necessarily a bad thing. But it's not really a new thing. I'll include the standard "It's still early" caveat here, of course, because I don't mean to say that after 10 days we've seen the creative culmination of G+. No doubt new forms of collaboration will appear. Humans are clever that way.

So, is Twitter really a Storytelling platform? Really? Will Google+ become one? Well time will show. And in the meantime: let's tell some stories!
