I used to love Google as a company, i work with App Engine, i use G-Mail and Blogger services not speaking about the search engine. I am one of the over 25 milion users of the Google+ network and i must confess that is pure garbage. I don't think it has the power to beat Facebook, its a simple cheap clone of the biggest social network, without applications and privacy. The circle thing feels crappy, nothing works as expected. Its like a Facebook without users... sorry Google but I am very happy with my FB account and if you don't give users a solid reason why they should switch (there is no way I will use two social networks.. I mean why?? ) I think the future of G+ is doomed.
