    Are you saying you get more visitors to you plus site than any website you own? I'm not sure this is a good thing.

    Google+ is a great social media, just not many people use it. With the implementation with hangouts in android, I think the users will increase.

    In a word, yes. Initially it was because they do not allow your business to have an account, it has to all be through your personal account, and I would rather spend my time working on my business than socializing with people. Then Google themselves gave me a better reason to dislike G+ when they came out and pretty much said that the purpose of the platform is not to be a social network, but to be a platform to capture and monitor your online habits so that they can sell your profile to advertising agencies. Knowing that, what do they offer to entice me into participating in their scheme? Nothing.

    Not at all. The layout may not be the same as what people expect or as what people think of Facebook, but the usage of the website is better, because when uploading a link, you don't have to show the link in your update, there's a Link button in which you can feed your URL link and it would only show the tab of the link, and not the link.

    I use it because it helps with SEO and online marketing but I'm not a fan. I understand why Google needed the g+ but it's just another platform that needs to be updated.

    EDIT: "...another platform that needs to be updated," refers to having to be maintained such as posting, answering, status update, etc.

    I started using g+ and it helped a lot, made few thousand bucks , I was ignoring it before, very useful tool because google favours it.

    I like Google+ and wish it would get more attention. To me the user interface is cleaner and the security controls are easier to understand. I'm hoping it gets more attention in the future because I definitely prefer it to Facebook; unfortunately, it's underused...

    Google+ isn't great, but since its run by Google -- its a must-have.

    i don't think so. it takes time for the first time to load the website. but after that it works faster. its good your business, marketing, website ranking. as google is worlds most powerful search engine and they have many other tools added with the google, so if you want to increase your business or marketing then you should use google+ right now.

    While I don’t use G+ for personal communication, I think it’s has potential to be a great resource for business. Also I think it is more user friendly than Facebook. We are simply more used to the latter.

    G+ is Different. We use it to amplify our message in conjunction with other social media accounts.

    Google+ is definitely a place to promote your post to get quality, targeted traffic. I just wanted to mention that you should really take a look at using the Communities. You only have a few hundred people who circled you but if you share your blog post with the Blogging Community on Google+ for example, you are now sharing it with over 20,000 people.

    Using the Communities as made Google + my top referrer! Give Communities a try for a boost in traffic.

    Google+ is one alternative out of social network. I got followers and it's gradually increasing from there. It has several service for connecting people or public such Hang Out, community and more.

    However, please restrict its term of use too or otherwise will get limit access for some period of time.

    I like it anyway.
