From the article:
I couldn’t even get my own teenage daughter to look at Google+ twice, “social isn’t a product,” she told me after I gave her a demo, “social is people and the people are on Facebook.”
Bang on assessment imo. I'd honestly like Google to ease up on forcing G+ via their other products, they have trust to earn and anti-trust lawsuits to settle first. Heck I'd like my old Google search results back too, I hope they regain focus on THEIR core strength (search) and ease up on Facebook's (social) soon.
What seems most scary to Google right now would be Facebook releasing a search engine since they have the audience to use it in place, but you don't see facebook rushing. It's a bad time for Google to be perceived as faltering in search!
