    Question What are your thoughts on Google+?

    Will you be staying or leaving? Personally I enjoy it more than Facebook or Twitter so I will be staying.

    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.

    I'd be on Google+ more if the iOS app didnt crash on iOS 5 everytime i click anything other then notifications. But I do like it better then Facebook, but I like twitter the best.

    I like Google+ over Facebook but really don't think that it will attract as many users as Facebook. Although there once was a myspace dominating the market. Only time will tell I suppose.

    It's ok. Not to many people I know in it and the app seems laggy. It doesn't load as fast as it should.

    + 1 for me! I might use it more once the app works like it should on iOS 5.

    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+.

    I couldn't agree more.

    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.

    The update has been a major plus for me. It is actually usable and very close the the Android version.

    I like G+ more than Facebook but Im not sure about Twitter I just like it because it's so good and reliable (Facebook have some wierd bugs). And I don't have any friends using G+. Yet.

    It should be interesting to see what happens when it comes out of beta.

    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.

    I like it and use it. You need to remember it's still just a little baby. They need users who are going to give feedback to make it better instead of users that sign up and never use it again.
