Am I The Only One Who Ignores Online Ads?

It's more than that with me. I don't really ignore them, I don't really even see them. So Facebook is worth 100 billion for the Ads? Is it? There must be some really gullible souls out there. I don't think I've ever had the urge to buy from a Facebook advert, or a google one for that matter. TV is a much stronger medium for sucking me in - and even then it's generally things within a programme rather than the ads themselves. I predict that if anyone stumps up 100 billion for FB they will lose money. I pity them, for they are stupid.

Google+ API?

I like Google+, I really do but it really pisses me off that I can't post to it from one of the combined services. If it releases the ability to post to it from other services it could gain traction but for me it's a pain in the ass to common post to twitter + facebook and then make a special effort to post to google+. What that means in real life is that all my posts go to twitter and facebook while those I can be arsed to re-post go to Google+. I hope google+ catches on but if they can't be arsed to release an API for third party posts then I hope it doesn't. Come on google, you aren't facebook and without a proper API that's just where you'll stay. You need to be less cocky...
