Minecraft's Notch Quits Facebook for Google Plus

Markus Notch Persson Google Plus

Last night I idly checked the Facebook profile of Minecraft god Markus "Notch" Persson (we have a mutual friend), and I was kinda tempted to attempt a fan-boy friend add, but here's what his profile looks like. That's right: According to his profile pic, he's quit Facebook for Google+. I haven't asked him why he did so, but I can imagine why he would: Inundation with Facebook friend requests, and the growing feeling that he can better talk and share about Minecraft updates on Plus. And in fact, here's Notch's Google Plus profile, where he's talking and sharing up a storm.

Leo Laporte put the same image as his profile photo. I think it's a meme.

I think people will end up using Facebook and Google+ for different things. I'll probably use Facebook for following relatives and old schoolmates, and Google+ for following groups ("circles") of people I don't know as well. For example, I have a "tech reporters" circle and a "photographers" circle.

Buy Google Plus 1

Buy Google Plus 1 usually gets more than a billion visits per month on our websites in a given month, but the study shows that people spend more time on than they do one of the reports of Google, and to measure the success or network failure, the time is more precious than the number of visitors to what Google is all too aware.

Google has long needed a social layer to its algorithm, every visitor to your site that gives a +1 tells Google that your content has passed the human test for quality. Buy Google + 1's
