    Google's latest attempt to compete with Facebook is its new social network called Google Plus.

    Before its official launch access is by invitation only, but somehow the co-founder of Facebook got into the G-Plus party.

    Now more than 40,000 follow Mark Zuckerberg, making him the most followed person on Google Plus. Trailing pretty far behind with some 25,000 followers is Google's own co-founder, Larry Page.

    Its really not that far out to believe, I mean for sure he would want to be one of the first in there looking around as it may possibly be facebooks biggest competitor soon enough. I just got my first invite today and I think it certainly looks sleek, although I couldn't find not one person I knew.

    Zuckerberg is all about being Black Hat to become a MultiBillion Dollar Company.

    I dont think it will be a competitor of Facebook. I think it will be different. I think that they will all end up working together (Facebook, Twitter and Google+). Just y opinion maybe, but it is what I think.

    Maybe they will work together but it is not clear how big will be the piece of the cake for each one of them. Google can cut on social share and twitter or facebook can cut google advertising income.

    Personally i don't think google + is going to take the SEO scene by storm. it is more or less a copy of facebook's likes. Most copies miserably fail, but since this is from google, it is going decently.

    Zuckerberg is also just a more recognizable name than the founders of google. If you walk up to 20 random people on the street more would be able to tell you who created Facebook than Google.

    Making corporate movies and releasing them worldwide probably helps a lot...
