Learning from the Google+ suspensions

With all the anger over the Google+ mass suspensions, I’ve seen quite a few people post that they’re going elsewhere. Rainyday Superstar has suggested that she might go use Tumblr more. Other people are talking about Diaspora, DreamWidth, even (gag!) staying with Facebook. I think those people are all failing to see the big picture. Google’s behavior towards its users is a surprise only because we’ve come to expect better from Google.
