    It's much better than Twitter and Facebook. But its not much use unless the people you want to interact are users. I've almost stopped using Facebook and am just likely to put a link to my Google+ soon and remove most content.

    We saw the demise of MySpace with the advent of Facebook and Twitter but Google+ just doesn't appeal to me in the slightest. With facebook and Twitter starting to combine their posts and with Skype being introduced, I don't feel the need to jump ship just yet. Microsoft also combining data from Facebook,Twitter, email, SMS, MMS and their own Live brand and allowing you to respond using any, I think Google+ will predominantly be home for the Google fanboys.

    It's as empty as the void. You can hear you posts echo as you make them

    I'm on google+ and was never on facebook. Only reason really is because a mate sent me an invite and all I had to do was sign-in using my google account. So easy.
    Not that I ever use it, just uploaded my sonisphere pictures. Which is depressing as I am nearly tempted to join facebook just to get everyone else's pictures from sonisphere. All 89 billion of them :(

    It seems like not many people care about Google+ anymore, which is a shame because it generated quite a lot of hype a few months ago. They should have made it available for everyone much earlier, but by doing that maybe they won't gain as much hype then. If I remember correctly, Facebook was exclusive to uni/college students only, and it grew from there. People who got early Google+ access were randomly selected, and they didn't really share common interests or backgrounds.

    I'm considering moving to Google+ just because of how awful the new facebook layout is

    So, you didn't create an account with Bit Tech to make that post then? Who do you think pays for this website?

    If I had an android phone I might actually switch to Google+, my friend who has a droid explained to me how anytime you take a picture on your phone it auto-uploads to your google+ albums. That's a great feature that I certainly don't have on my blackberry. Instant photo backup.

    If there was a way to import all the pictures that I am tagged in, and all my friends (as well as send them invites), then I would be in. I haven't been on G+ in a while though, so feel free to enlighten me if you can in fact do that.
