    Hello,
    I would like all of your opinions on Google+. Feel free on how you think it's ruining YouTube as well. Have fun!

    I don't think so, though Google+ is much slower and not user friendly like facebook, but it helps to get in touch of my clients. Thanks

    Oh I'm surprised. I find G+ less busy. Facebook is great, but it often has way too many ads on it.

    I've heard that it G+ can give you dofollow backlinks somehow, you have to think about it. It's a Google product, their social network. If you know how to get followers you will be on a good road.

    I think google+ isn't perfect, but only because so few people use it. Personally, if more of my friends and colleagues would switch to Google+, I would stop using facebook altogether. I love how easy it is to group your friends into circles by interest or by how close they are to you. Your privacy and what you see in your home feed are also easier to manage. Finally, the greatest bonus is that there are no intrusive advertisements and no annoying application invitations.

    I am not too familiar with Google + but it seems to have some benefits. I try to keep it updated with new posts a few times a week and I have about 300 people who have me in their circles. However, I am really just using it because it seems like the thing to do for bloggers. I would not say that it is ruining anything though. I just look at it as a way to promote my blog posts.

    I think G+ take more time to load in compare to Facebook. Also, G+ is less crowded/active than FB. I tried to generate traffic via G+ but failed but FB works great. I am not sure but I think G+ helps to index blog post in Google search.

    Google+ sucks, It is just a data mining scam that scraps your info.

    I tried to use it as a FB alternative then decided it was worse then FB. Once in a while I will wander into it from some of my gmail accts. The way it is laid out sucks,, it is hard to find or keep track of anything. They are going to start scraping info like reviews and using it in advertising, I also noticed it is getting very hard to delete anything you put into it.

    Not really.
    In fact not at all.
    Google+ is such a cool thing. I rather use Google+ instead of twitter.
    Because twitter is the biggest waste of time where people are ready to update extremely weird things like going to the bathroom or picking their noses and etc.
    But however Google+ is pretty cool in front of that. Google plus also gives you many things that Facebook doesn't give you. And the Google+ interface is better than Facebook. You have to admit that!!

    I use G+, Facebook and Twitter, because every social signals fulfils different goals and target different audience therefore you can have audiences from every where.

    G+ is Different. We use it to amplify our message in conjunction with other social media accounts. It is however, important to reach all of our audience. That is why we incorporate it into all of our Social Networking activities and strategies. I agree with some of the others that G+ is slower and maybe not visited by as many people as FB or Twitter. However, the service is growing and more people are developing circles and using it for targeted campaigns. Someone, not on Digital Point, said it was a "Facebook Wannabe". But, I think it is much more when connecting with other offerings Google are expanding every day.

    I think G+ is more business-friendly, yet it helps companies and causes connect on a more personal level. It feels more intimate to me and it's a great way to target people.

    Ooh G+ is Great i am getting good traffic from there, facebook is not that good but if you need your social media presence better you have to focus on other Social networking sites as well, for example pinterst, Stumbleupon, and reddit.

    I don't think it sucks at all. I use it a lot to promote my websites, and I get a lot of good traffic from it. It may not be as good as Facebook or Twitter, but you can certainly reach out to a lot of people and promote your business/site. It also converts quite highly for me, much more so than Twitter.

    I don't use Google +, so I think it's pointless, but it doesn't suck.
