    Why most people use Facebook instead of Google Plus ? Is this means that Facebook is more reliable than Google Plus?

    Try using Google Plus and you will know.
    Google plus is difficult to use, the interface is complicated and not very user friendly, whereas Facebooks interface is more user friendly and easy to navigate, use, understand and interact.

    Actually, it depends on who you're targeting. There are specific groups of people amongst which Google Plus is more popular than Facebook. Some developers, especially of Open Source software, are extremely active on Google Plus and far more than they are on Facebook. You'll find them doing Hangouts, interviews and whatever else with each other.

    Instead of asking who uses what more, why not use Google+ and Facebook yourself? Social media is a great way to get targeted traffic to your sites and blogs and there is nothing wrong with using more than one. ;)

    Both are good.

    Facebook is good for those who want to target visitors, Facebook likes for their page by promoting in various Facebook groups.

    Google+ is better for SEO and as well as to target visitors from top countries like USA, UK, Australia etc.

    Agree with you "danasurvey"
    as this is the age of social media, especially big ones like Facebook and Google+, every one has his own opinion.
    Majority of people think that Facebook is better due to its larger user base while others think Google+ is better because of its slicker interface, or because it’s, well, owned by Google, which is considered by many less evil than Facebook.

    For sure for a better SEO for your website you should have a page directing to your "money site" on both of these Social Networks. About the difference as many above said you should try it by yourself and then you'll have your own idea - both are free to use :)

    Thanks Dean and well said. Both Google+ and Facebbok can be helpful parts of any Internet Marketing plan.

    Again, I say try both. :)

    I think more people like the way how Facebook uses all its resources (software and other programs) to entertain people, increase traffic to their sites (for IM), and promote products/services..Facebook is undeniably more fun than Google Plus. Although that depends on how you want to use the site.

    In use, Google Plus is a more professional (LinkedIn) type of website and Facebook is more personal. Even though they can both obviously go either way. Google Plus is very good for professionals because most people use GMAIL and Google search engine so Google Plus ties into both of these seamlessly.

    As far as SEO goes, they are both very important. As many people have said Google does favor its own social network more than Facebook, but Facebook likes and shares are still a very important factor in the Google ranking algorithm.

    They both have their purposes and they are both important to SEO, so it is good to have both. But for person to person social networking, Facebook has the numbers.

    A lot of people on Google plus got forced on to the service in order to use one of the other Google products. I think its active use is a lot lower than its current number of members would suggest.

    you'll get lots of traffic with Facebook, but not back links. With Google plus, you'll get traffic plus back links. I'm not sure why Facebook doesn't give back links to sites, but I know one thing for sure that you do want to advertise your site one Facebook and Google plus at the same time. This can be achieved by way of "content distribution."

    youtube comments now linked to G+ : kind of forcing ppl to join it.

    2nd G+ is quite heavy : fb opens fast that g+
    G+ is more complex . their communities feature is quite good
    their page feature still require lots of improvement and not to mention API they lack.

    People are choosing Facebook because of massive traffic but it gives the low quality of followers, if you want quality in your followers than you should choose Google+ because it can give you more professionalism than Facebook.
