Microsoft OSNews writing about social networks? Yes, it happens, and today is one of those days. We all know Facebook is king here, with a massive userbase and a seemingly unbreakable hold over the market, with Twitter covering the more public side of social networking. Google does some stuff in a fringe somewhere with something called Google+ which tries to combine Facebook and Twitter, but it's effectively a ghost town with a confusing interface. So, if you're Microsoft, what are you going to do? Well, build your own social network, of course!

2. You want real friends in your circles instead of connections

You've just described LinkedIn

Still I can't see the point of G+.

At LinkedIn the public interaction is minimal and is stuffed into this feature called groups. And groups in LinkedIn are half-a**ed anyway.

Frankly, LinkedIn will not be anything like an active social network Facebook or even G+ are. It's just your CV with connections to people that could recommend you to someone.
