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.
