    For now Facebook is far ahead of Google+, traffic of Google+ is very limited as compared to Facebook. Although the there is a competition and the game has begun but do not compare Google with Facebook instead it is Google+ and Facebook.

    But how far is copying is justified. :) Facebook knows that the Father of Google+ is Google and hence it doesn't want to leave any field which may lead to its downfall.

    Google+ is still in beta, i feel like its to early to tell... but Google has more to offer than Facebook in my opinion, and they already have millions of Google users, anything could happen.

    There are lots of things that Google can do. Truth is, Google is in the center and we are all orbiting around it.

    Yes, absolutely! :) Google Dominates the internet.

    What do you think? Is it dangerous or safe?

    Google is number one and has billions of users. Facebook is growing but Google is already established. I use facebook say once a week but i visit google at least 10 times a day (approx. figure :D) so its going to be hard for facebook to beat google and in my opinion its impossible coz facebook is a social network not everyone need it, but google is search engine its the need of everyone.

    I think that Facebook is just trying to enhance their site, while Google is trying to be different from Facebook

    Yes, but in some way Zuckerberg got nervous when Google + launched and started to catch users like crazy.
    For instance they went back with the chat, now is more similar to the older one.

    I doubt that Facebook is really copying Google +, more of a pre-empt strategy to stop the expansion of Google + right before it has the critical mass. Good business strategy, though Google does have the financial strengths to put up a good attack as well. It is too early to see who is the winner. Who knows it may not be either company but a new company that is more innovative coming out in the future.

    Google is #1 on the Internet there is no doubt. They own Youtube, Google Places, Google Maps and much much more,
    but in the regard of social media, I feel that Google+ is trying to copy Facebook, and rightfully so. Facebook is obviously a
    very smart platform to copy, and I wouldn't be surprised that in a few years Google+ is bigger and stronger than Facebook.
    People get boared and are always looking for new mediums to try, so I guess we'll have to wait and see...

    Google+ has just started but given the huge base of users that google has, we are in for an interesting time ahead.

    We will see Google as the ultimate power in the years to come. Though it already has the major portion but it will grow.

    Facebook has taken this seriously and have started to copy all the areas which were new in Google+, so that people do not migrate. The article's link in the top does prove this. Go through it to see how facebook's is copying every steps. here is the link again.

    :)
