    Oh, this is interesting.

    "Google is rebuilding Google+ around two popular features — Communities and Collections. Google claims that Communities averages 1.2 million new joins per day."

    "Collections allows users to group posts by topic and curate their own lists (or follow previously established lists). Communities serve as a gathering place for Google+ users interested in a certain topic or idea."

    Probably dead as a social network, but possibly helpful for SEO

    Google died as a social network because they didn't make it easy to bot or automate and social networks need BOTS.

    They don't really seem to have introduced any 'worthy' new feature which might make it go viral! Its still alive only because its owned by Google or else you won't even read about it anywhere.

    I've never used it, it's not even good for business, never hear chicks saying 'oh ya upload it to Goolge+- either...

    They do the same thing wrong each time, always brand extensions of the Google brand. Google + or plus is a terrible name also. The only thing that worked was YouTube and they didn't change the name there. The two owners are prats.

    i do better with google+ than i do with facebook, better interactions for me anyway. I bought accounts off a fellow blackhatter and even have circles with fake accounts, oh and a rather strange man who keeps trying to chat me up LOL!

    Google hasn't even up hope but I don't blame them. They just need to stop trying to be like other platforms and create something a little more unique

    Google+ would be much better LinkedIn killer than it would ever be Facebook killer if slightly tweaked.
