Over the Weekend Google announced plans to roll out a new suggested user feature on its Google+ social network similar to that used on Twitter. The announcement for the new suggested user feature was Tweeted by Bradley Horowitz, vice president of product management for Google+. Explaining that any users with over 100k followers on Twitter would be able to then signup for the pilot scheme.
“We’re about to pilot a ‘suggested user’-like mechanism on Google+. If you’ve got more than 100k followers on Twitter, DM me – lets talk!”
However the new feature has already caused a stir within the Google+ community with users and prominent bloggers alike, suggesting that the new suggested user feature will create a large divide between people on the list and those not, with some comparing Google’s move with racial profiling. What are your thoughts on a suggested user feature?
