Stop Posting Articles on Google+

This is nothing more than my strong opinion.

Please stop posting articles on Google+.

I’m not saying don’t use Google+, don’t share links on Google+, or shun Google+ completely … that would be a different article. What I’m saying is don’t post your longer-form articles strictly on Google+ for a simple reason:

If you post it there and I find it on Twitter, have the link sent to me via email, or see it anywhere else and click to read it … I’m taken to the Google+ website. That website is terrible of reading longer-form articles, and it is absolute TRASH on anything but a desktop browser. No, I’m not going to open up a mobile app to read your article.

You are, first, giving Google control over your longer-form writing and, second, making the whole experience worse for your readers. Please stop doing it.
