I prefer Twitter way more than G+ or FB. I do like G+ more than FB but my timeline is getting slower and slower everyday on G+. People seem to be abandoning G+ already and they are admitting it. It hope G+ does catch on for the long haul.

However I see a couple of disadvantages for G+. One downfall is most people aren't going to switch from Facebook. A second downfall is that they will not want to update both G+ and Facebook. Facebook just has too much of a lead over G+ IMO. Most of my friends are already established on Facebook and aren't interested in starting over on G+.

The fact that the app crashes on iOS 5 is a huge reason I haven't been active on G+. Convincing my friends to switch has been a difficult task because of the reasons you mention above.
With that said, G+ has a few advantages over Facebook. Unless you're addicted to Facebook and that it's your sole reason to use the Internet, changes are you use Google to search. The fact that G+ is integrate through the entire Google experience makes it relatively convenient to use. Secondly, the concept of circles is easy to understand and provide a certain level of control over your privacy something that's not so simple to setup using Facebook.
Personally, once the iOS app works on iOS 5, I'll switch to G+.

I love it. All the advantages of Twitter and a forum rolled into one without the games and silliness associated with Facebook. I could easily use it instead of the other two even without a usable app. After all, when I first started on Twitter there were no apps.
G+ has so much more to offer.

I gave it a go and killed it shortly after. It's a ghost town and I can't be bothered to migrate and update all my stuff into/in Google+.
That and maybe 3 people I know actually use it, the rest don't care and, like me, are sticking with FB.
