From photography to astronomy (and everything in between), Google+ has always been a place to crowd around common interests and meet new people. What’s been missing, however, are more permanent homes for all the stuff you love: the wonderful, the weird, and yes, even the things that are waaay out there. With Google+ Communities there’s now a gathering place for your passions...Google Announces Google+ Communities Rolling Out [googleblog.blogspot.co.uk]

I love the fact G+ is dying on its arse. Was on a well-shared page this morning: 4k FB likes, 1.7k Twitter shares, 6 G+ shares.

Oops.

Two aspects give G+ growth. The fact that it is becomng compulsory for Google's tools and services, and that Google is in it for the long term.

If it starts giving communities a place to interact it may build traction over time.

Here's how I see it:-

FB = friends and family
G+ = communities

Indeed. A small change like adding/swapping Youtube playlists & upload lists to G+ would suddenly give it a load of active users.

G+ is nothing more than the poster child for internet hypocrisy. Google bans or penalizes scrapers, but when the search giant eyes a site that threatens it's popularity (FB), it launches a copy cat social site of its own.
As someone else put it, "Social is about people, and the people aren't at G+"...they never will. FB is the cool kid on the block that everyone just naturally likes. G+ is the arrogant nerdy rich kid who has no friends except for the FB kids who deliver him a daily playground beating. Do the math.

G+ is on my dead pool list...I give it another year of thrashing about before G finally hangs it up or completely remodels it's social approach to something that works with FB, not against. That or G just buys it up. At that point, social will flop.

I'm more concerned with it becoming mandatory for webmaster tools in which case I'll abandon GWT too.
