So has anyone tried out Google Plus yet? What are your opinions on it? Do you think it will soon become competition for Facebook and maybe even surpass it? It just started and is still in the Beta, so if you want an invite, give me your email and I'll send you one.

I haven't tried it out yet, but I hear it's nice. I doubt it'll outdo Facebook and Myspace (lol) though. At least for now. Eventually it could potentially pose a threat.

Never, mom and pop are on facebook. Its what there used too and it works fine for every need. Unless it crashed and burned i couldn't see the average parents jumping onto the new site. I'm sure us kids might jump on because its new and improved but eh... GL

Anyone assuming it is built to be direct competition to Facebook(as in, do what FB does, but better), aren't really correct with that. G+ and FB do very different things in terms of social and network communications. Even the things they do similarly are executed differently.

Also, this is Google we're talking about. Kings of advertisement and progression. If anyone can concoct a true challenge to FB, it would be them.

I've been using it for the last 48 hours. I enjoy the simplicity and privacy options and abilities it holds. It is VERY raw functionality wise, and one can't assume that this is the final product. Knowing Google, this will either fall to the wayside or get updated constantly, and if the report of almost 4 million registered users is right, then it isn't off to a bad pre-start(only way in is invite only right now, same way it was with FB and GMail to start with).

The potential is there for greatness. They just need to emphasize what G+ does differently from FB and push on that.

Also, since I'm in it, I can invite people too if anyone wants in.

Vexenon has a spectacular aura aboutVexenon has a spectacular aura about

I think a lot of people are perceiving Google+ to be a Facebook competitor – I think the two will coexist, not compete. If anything, Google+ is going to give Twitter a run for its non-existent money, mainly because it’s a networking tool that can be used to hold longer conversations and is great if you’re looking to get a serious opinion on something; it offers all of the things Twitter does while incorporating the idea of actually sharing long, important things with select groups of people like Facebook does.

The one thing Google+ has that Facebook doesn’t is advanced and simplistic sharing – I’d much rather be able to share with both real-life and online friends/acquaintances than have accounts on multiple social networks that do only one of these things. I think Google+ is about controlled sharing and is designed more-so for nerds and power users, not grandma and grandpa or people looking to interact socially through games and other apps. Google+ is going to be a powerful networking tool for geeks and individuals, but it’s not going to be competing with Facebook; the two aren’t going to be used for the same purposes, and I think people need to realize that.

As much as I don't like all the asshattery that goes on in Facebook it's what I've grown accustom to, so it's what I'm sticking with.
