Do people get rich being followers?
Actually, yes. FB is itself little more than a follower of several other similar social networking sites that never made money. FB added additional functionality, which helped make it successful. They also had good timing.
So if Google can add some other type of "FB-killing" functionality, then they may have a shot. But if they just rehash what's already there? Probably not.
