This applies to all social media.
I cannot be alone in the frustration of having a good discussion, and wanting to reference back to it later for information, links, or to show someone else.
But do you think they have built a way for me to see what *I* have commented on? Not what I have shared with others, but what I have contributed to. This may not have been such a big deal with Facebook as everyone was just sharing what they had for breakfast, or twitter (once it has search this will be fine). But Google+ has lots of heated, lengthy debates, allows formatting, almost a micro blogging platform, but there is no way (other than notifications) to go through and find what you have commented on or contributed to.
Secondly, if I +1 a web page, or a post, or a comment, they should all be stored *in the same place*. It should be a referencing system. At the moment it feels as though they don’t know whether it is a ‘read later’ device, a ‘like’ device, or a ‘marketing’ device. Make up your mind and make it work.
Thirdly, this also applies to bookmarks. I thought Stashmarks might have solved my problem, but it doesn’t appear to be working for me (more on that later). But surely, as my computer downloads the data for a page, it stores all that data, at least in the session? So why, when I type some random words from a page, does it not show up in the history? Why can I not find a page I looked at *today* ? Or at the very least, since I closed my browser? I know I know storage, so what, I have to reboot Chrome a bit more often. I’d make that sacrifice.
I spend too much of my time retracing my steps to find information. Someone should be automating it, and making money off providing that to me as a service.
