Ideas and Dreams Waiting to Happen!

.

Google+ most promising unique feature is its glorified Circles.

What are Circles? Circles are based on the idea that we have various people in our life with whom we communicate differently, so it would be better if we could separate our conversations by separating them into Circles. Got it? Good. Let’s continue.

We all agree that Circles make a smart and logical point and are something we all very much need, and if we need it, then so does Facebook.

.

Here’s what facebook should do:

.

Step 1: Change the Sharing Rules

Facebook Groups are a 3 way sharing street:

1| What you share is seen by all the group

2 | What someone in the group shares, is seen by you

3 | What someone in the group shares, is seen by all

.

Google+ Circles are a two way sharing street:

1 | What you share is seen by all the group

2 | What someone in the group shares, is seen by you

.

mmm… do you see the difference? look hard… there it is! #3.

To make a Facebook Group into a Circle we need to leave out sharing rule #3:

” 3 | What someone in the group shares is seen by all “

Step 2: From Lists to Circle Groups

To Present this new Group Type to the world, we can use something that people who use Facebook are already familiar with – Lists.

We don’t really use lists, that’s because they only have sharing rule #2 -

” 2 | What someone in the group share, is seen by you “

So, we need to add to lists, sharing rule #1 -

“1 | What you share is seen by all the group”

.

Final Step: A Facebook Circle

There you have it, a Facebook Circle made out of existing Facebook bits and pieces,

Ready to take Google back to square one.

But before everything returns to normal, Facebook must do one more thing, in the words of chriscrocker:

“Leave The Chat Bar Alone!”

the issue with facebook copying Google+ Circles is far from a technology issue… its more of an infrastructure issue… will facebook afford to run Circles around 750million people all sharing one way to their own created Circles and generating those feeds ??
