social networked out  

Apropos of pretty much nothing, I gotta say that having joined G+ and all, my reaction is not “wean other social networks off & just use G+” so much as it is “I’m pretty sick of social networks & am not wildly inclined to use any of them anymore.”

I’m finding that to be a rock and a hard place, though, professionally speaking. Between G+, Twitter & FB I’ve got somewhere in the region of 2500 followers (a fair percentage of whom, I’m sure, are repeat offenders, but many of whom are not), and I don’t want to lose the tenuous contact I’ve got with them. Sadly I can’t afford to bribe them to read the blog regularly, so…what’s a girl to do? *wibble*

The best solution for you would probably be to syndicate outward from your main blog and have some kind of system to aggregate comments back in, but that kind of thing contradicts FBG+'s business model. FB in particular is designed like a roach motel.

I don't have anything useful to say, I guess, except that they get away with this kind of predatory design because people let them.

If I had any idea how to do something that would aggregate comments back in I would be on that like a thing that was on it!
