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.

Essentially, you postulate a need to jump through hoops, to train yourself, for the service to have any point. WTH?
Why should we be so invested in the uptake of G+?

Suddenly G+ is about turning it into the central internet hub (under one corp) for hobbies and interests, about following people of interest to you ...like there was something wrong with RSS and so on.

What's the point? There are already more, easily findable, communities and material in each of those fields to last few dozen lifetimes of exclusive attention.

What, new space to fill? Life, internet, mostly the same crap, over and over, forever?

So there.
