    I don't hate it, I just have no need to use it. I guess similar to a lot of people.

    I hate it but then again I hate all the Social sites.

    Unfortunately, it seems it will become increasingly important as Google attempts to ram this shit down our throats.

    It's ok. Community is still pretty small and the atmosphere in circles is very "proper"

    Not somewhere I'd hang around for shits and giggles

    Waste of time due to its lack of penetration. It's like focusing your SEO on Bing as compared to Google. The traffic just isn't there yet.

    No need to like something for it to benefit you! G+ doesn't yet serve a purpose that others social sites don't for the common people.

    The only types of people that use it are techies, who would have social media accounts on every platform anyway.

    Even the most followed "celebs" on there barely have their interns post on it.

    Useless. Google stuffs it down the throat via youtube and other services, but still virtually noone uses it. Another flop of Google, the most expensive one I'd say.

    I don't use it - it's confusing if you compare it with TW and FB.
    But those G+1's sure help with rankings :)

    Google don't know what social is, everything they create is to harvest information it is not designed to be social it is designed to place specific information based on searches (e.g ads!) on front of the user. The only way people use it is because they think it will give them an edge in the serps. Google is too analytical to produce a genuine, engaging social platform. No one trusts them either.

    I hate most of all social sites and just use them for what their good for. Google+ is good for indexing pages.

    It annoys the crap out of me. They've changed the cover photo size like 3 times this year. I just hate it and would never use it personally. I have to use it for my sites though, or I feel like I have to use it. It drives me nuts how they make you have a personal page to get a business one. I just made up a bunch of crap for it.

    Generally I find it quite OK. If you post your stuff to the right audience. You actually do grab attentions. Certainly will generate some leads over there.

    Its stupidly over complicated and completely pointless.

    Google claims they are doing everything to help with user experience but that is a complete lie.
    Googles only objective is to use our browsing habits to then force irrelevant crap down our throats in hopes it generates them income.

    The homepage on youtube is pure crap and doesn't not reflect my interests at all, it reflects what googles interests are and nothing more.

    What they are doing would be like BH shoving every single thread the OP of this thread created down my throat, just because I posted on it.
    Or only providing us with VIP members profiles upon clicking the "recent posts" tab, or any section actually.
