    More competition is always a good thing. They are trying to set themselves apart by making it limited to number of users you share your content with. Let's see how this turns out.

    I'm just not okay with them trying to buy their competition and then when the competition refuses they just clone it.

    They did it with yelp, groupon, twitter, and now facebook.

    Competition = web traffic

    Social networking is hot these days, so the more competition the better. It's just another step of the net evolution. Who remembers Gopher or Veronica today? Who will remember Facebook or Google+ in 10-20 years?

    Will require your real name to use the service, so finally google can give all the anon searchers a name. At least for those who signup. Because some people are really so stupid to use their real names in social networks.
