Google+ is a new social network announced by Google on June 28, 2011. In the first panel, Megan describes G+ as ‘not Facebook’. Facebook is a popular social networking site. She then describes G+ as being like Facebook. When it launched there were many tech articles written about G+, which appears to look and/or function similarly to Facebook.
After Cueball thinks about it in the second frame, he comes to a realization in the third frame that ‘a social network like Facebook, but not related to Facebook’ is all he really wanted. This is in reference to the backlash that happens every so often wherein people grow tired of Facebook, its arcane policies, its cavalier attitude toward user privacy and/or its general disdain for end users, and people want to leave Facebook, but have no comparable platform to move their social networking to.
- Megan: You should join Google+!
- Cueball: What is it?
- Megan: Not Facebook!
- Cueball: What's it like?
- Megan: Facebook!
- [Cueball considers.]
- Cueball: Oh, what the hell.
- Cueball: I guess that's all I really wanted.
