Aw these guys never learn!
They were warned, but they didn't listen.
What do you mean?
Google+ is actually better than Facebook. However, everyone is on Facebook (which is why most people started using it in the first place).
No one wants to use both Facebook and Google+, really Google shouldn't have made it invite only as they needed people to be able to just shift over to Google+ at will because unless at least 70% of my friends are on G+ I'm still pretty much forced to use Facebook.
Yeah... I find myself on Google Plus as often as I am on Facebook...
So it's not dead yet? I am there but very lonely as none of my FB friends has joined.
well google should come with something really good to overcome facebook which has a status now
I believe Google made a significant mistake in the roll out of Plus.
The value of a social network is people go there to socialise, if only a limited subset of your friends are able to signup and create an account the social network loses its draw and dies.
Google Plus should have run a VERY limited trial (not the 10M they opened up to initially) and then opened the doors completely.
By having a staged roll out like they have they failed to capitalize on buzz (pun not intended) and now may struggle significant market share.
On a side note, I'd like to see Facebook acquire Bing from Microsoft to compete with Google in Search. They already utilise Bing Maps, and Microsoft has a 1.3% share of Facebook's outstanding stock - so its not out of the realms of possibility.
