Shazam999: Pocket Ninja: I know lots of people who use Google Hangouts for free business teleconferencing, but I don't know a soul who uses Google+ as a social site.

This. The Hangouts is the only semi-useful feature and the only reason I have an account there.


This, plus the fact that it's now required for posting reviews in the play store. If you require it for that, of course the numbers will go up.

Already more useful to me than Facebook. Plus there's Linkedin for the social stuff that isn't navel gazing (which is what Twitter is for).


Facebook is only useful for seeing my friends in bikinis.

In other news, 25% of Internet users occasionally accidentally click the demure "+1" next to Google Search links and therefore are users of Google+.

It's not a successful social network until someone gets fired for criticizing his boss on it.

Mike Chewbacca: Aboleth: My Google+ feed is a fountain of artist/photography/movie/comics/tabletop RPG activity.

And no Facebook-type derp.

My mom is on FB though, and she's on there because all her kids and siblings on there. That being said, the stupid ads and suggested links and suggested likes are really, really annoying on FB, and every day I inch closer to quitting and going to G+ full time.


that's the thing it's not me switching over, it's all the cousins and aunt's and uncles that will have to switch for me to go to G+, I can't be farked to post photo's of my vacation twice.

Facebook is now under pressure to get their P/E down to 30:1 instead of 300:1, so now they're going to get obnoxious about the advertising. Google+ has no pressure to make itself worth a hundred billion dollars, but to just make the mothership a profit.

Google+ only lacks the number of active users, but the most regular social networking users are going to wander over there the minute FB resorts to obnoxious screen blocking pop-up ads. I wonder if we're going to see that the realization of dominance results in fear.

And I bet Google makes more from allowing embedding YouTube clips in Facebook posts than Facebook makes in advertising.

Google+ is awesome if you are into photography.

Since Google now automatically creates a Google+ account when you create a gmail account, I'm not surprised at the numbers.

Not too much of a pain to kill G+ and keep gmail, though.
