Google Plus and usability (part 1): can’t write a message to a single person

So, I finally got an invitation to use the Google Plus.

I will not comment about this service because a lot has been written, but I will comment on its usability.

Here are the most nerving issues which the Product Managers from Google seem to have not understood:

I want to write to a friend a direct message without having to create a circle with only 1 user.

I click on the name and I expect to be able to interact with the user.









And surprise… there is no way to do this …

To compare it with Facebook, if you click on a username, you can write on the Wall of the respective person.

Will write more here 🙂
