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]

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.
