    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.

    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.
