You know those songs where people say you take 2 steps forward and 3 steps back? Well this is Google's way of taking 10 steps forward, and taking Facebookers back.

Maybe when it's actually released and people have it I will use it as a replacement. Right now it's an awesome way to actually talk to people who you normally can't through Facebook because they get so much attention there. They get a few people who have Google+ talking to them and might actually read all the messages and respond to some. That will change soon though.

Oh, come on, it's just your email address. It'd be different if he was asking for your credit card information, I could see that raising a flag, but your email? Just saying.

I doubt it. However, seeing as Google and Facebook are giant corporations, they'll either fight each other and give each other a run for their money, or merge.

I just use it to keep strictly Newgrounds and talk a wee, very wee, bit to Newgrounders. And I await for Google to remove me since I use Narcissy CannedSoup instead of my real name.

Probably a social networking website ripoff idea to Facebook.
I don't know why Google + was such a social networking ripoff.

I thought Google + was such an idea to something and then i heard that it was a ripoff to Facebook for some reason.

Maybe because they wanna do a battle for Facebook and Google for sure who is gonna be the most popular.

Not really much of a "rip-off", but it's safe to say that Google is just being a competitive show-off again by making their own social network website to try to compete with Facebook and Twitter.

Facebook is so popular and big that it has its hands in everyone's pockets. It can host advertisment out the ass and big businesses use it. Look at all those "Likes this on Facebook" crap. Google is also a company that has its hands everywhere, it's not shy to advertisements, obviously. So, it wants to be on the one to take over that market that Facebook has. "+1 this on Google+" will be out there soon.

I got invited, didn't join. I see absolutely no point in joining a social network that only one of my friends is able to use.
That's just retarded.

Pretty much. I have Google+, but I don't really use it because no one is ever logged in. It's still in beta and is not unlike Facebook...it just happens to look much more simplistic.

It does have a chance of taking down Facebook because it is new and could possibly become improved and superior in the future. For now, though, don't feel bad if you don't have Google+. You're not really missing out.

If I was interested in news from famous people I would get a Twitter or just stare at the home page of basically any email provider.
Famous people don't affect my life in any way, so I'd rather do something with my time other than worry about them.
