I really don't see what's so great about Google+
Google+ is a pretty great service, essentially it means I can add everyone and not be afraid of my family seeing things meant for my friends and ensure my work posts aren't visible to either, it sounds simple but it's just executed so well, overall it's a very fine experience, especially for a beta, and even though it has been repeatedly stated that it is not intended to compete directly with Facebook I can see myself dropping Facebook altogether if I get enough people to move over, which shouldn't be too hard. If they somehow manage an "import from Facebook" option that could be a lethal blow, I'm not by any means saying Facebook will suffer and go under in a year or two, but a significant amount of the more mature users I think would appreciate the Google+ service.
In a way, when I look at my Google+ stream I see a mixture of Facebook, twitter, and tumblr, and I love it.
