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.

I'd call that a disadvantage. Facebook is popular because you can actually see what's going on.

Why would someone bother using a service where you're stonewalled from seeing anything unless someone goes to the trouble to share it specifically with you...

@daedliusswartz - Perhaps I'm misunderstanding your post, but you don't have to individually specify people on Google+. You can make some posts public, for anyone in any of your Circles, for certain Circles, or for specific people.
