It seems Google+ is much better than Facebook at least for me. Circles is a great idea and I just don't like Facebook's privacy policy! Let's see what will happen in near future. What do you think guys? Another social network or next Facebook?

So far it seems more like a barebones Twitter than anything else. Looking forward to what the Google guys do to distinguish it.

estimates at 100MM+ users already, fast growing site ever, FB is worried for sure.
FYI FB has 750MM members, kinda crazy that google plus has that many so soon only off of invites, when its open officially it maybe be the next craze, For those already part of googele mail, music, android etc its a natural fit, just needs more people

Ten Things To Hate Aabout Google +

That said, I like the concept. I like hangouts. But it'll take a long time before people migrate from Facebook to Google +. We'll see what happens

I work with social media outlets every minute of every day, and much of my professional network has adopted Google +; as have I. After all of the hype has died down, it is a great platform, but is not the new Facebook. I actually think that the two will be able to co-exist quite well.

The key benefit of Google + is that it forces our other social networks go back to the drawing board and continue the innovation that got them to where they are today. I think it will be very intriguing to see each network grow now that the space is just a bit more crowded.

I just dont Google+ all that much. To me, it feels creepy and annoying to get notifications that some random guy is now adding me to his circle. Google has tried to pull off a twitter + FB. only time will tell if it will work.

I used Google+ for a month when I first signed up for it. Haven't used it much since...and that was years ago! I don't know many people who do use it much either.

I think is Google + is next to facebook. Facebook has more features than Google+ which are user friendly.
