Google According to InformationWeek: "Just over a hundred days after Google last provided an update on the status of Google+ for businesses, the company has introduced a way for companies to participate in its social network. Google+ Pages, like Facebook Pages before them, provide businesses and brands with a place to promote conversations related to their products and services." A number of U.S. government agencies are trying out Google+, including NASA, the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Marine Corps, and the National Nuclear Security Administration. Since release of initial Google+ components on June 28 2011, the product is claimed by Larry Page to have over 40 million users, versus some 800 million for Facebook.

Member since:

I was a while on Google+. I had almost 60 "friends", of which 3 posted stuff. The stuff they posted they also put on Facebook.

The "circles" was the big revolutionary feature, but why bother putting in the effort of sorting all your contacts and then having to decided with each post to what circle to post it to?

So I deleted my Google+ account.
