The problem with g+, is that it is NOT a social network - it is a veiled attempt at being such.
g+ is their attempt to glean more information from people - that is all.
They (google) have no heartfelt interest in "people" - they have a heartfelt interest in "money" and getting it from "people".
They are not interested in the social network service they are shoving out - only what they can get out of it.
Whilst this is probably the case with facebook aswell - the difference really is in that the facebook goal was to create a social network where people came first - money came later.
Google+ is about information and cash first - and imaginary quote
Google - "what else can we copy and shove up onto the net to get some cash and information ?"
Facebook - "lets build a massive social network - who knows..... if it works and people like it...... we may make lots of money"
theres a huge difference - and if im right about the above hypothetical quotes - g+ should fail miserably.
