    Default Google+ vs Facebook? (Which do you prefer?)

    Hello iMore,

    When it comes to Google+ I find that I prefer it over Facebook, which do you prefer?

    I actually prefer G+ but very few of my connections use it.

    Honestly, I hate both but I'd choose Facebook. Google+ is downright confusing to me, it just seems like a social network threw up on a computer screen and well, I'm supposed to be one of the people it appeals to (Techies, nerds etc.)

    I prefer Facebook, but simply cause it's the lesser of two evils...

    This. The FB app is just beyond ridiculous, but I couldn't find a single acquaintance that uses Google+.....or would even want to.

    Facebook, I don't find it all that bad really. It is what you make of it.

    No one I know uses G+, but overall I think I prefer it to Facebook. I like my Most Recent settings, the only social media that I use that gets it right is Twitter and ADN. Facebook's Most Recent is sketchy and you just plain don't get that option for G+.

    Facebook. It's more user friendly and just about everyone uses it....

    This thus I end up using Facebook. Facebook a also built into the iPhone and I can almost guarantee that g+ will never get that integration.

    I vastly prefer Google+ but since all I care about is staying in contact with my friends, I use what they use. Facebook it is.

    G+.

    Facebook is too noisy. And I like that everyone hasn't flocked to G+ LOL.

    I leave FB every presidential election cycle, because people suddenly get freakin' cyber soapboxes.

    Exactly the same here, not many contacts on G+, so Facebook is the default.

    I prefer G+. In fact I rarely use Facebook even though most of my friends are on it. I just go in occasionally if i'm bored, in fact I don't even bother installing the app on my phone most of the time since I so rarely use it.

    To me Facebook has become way too bloated.

    I like Google+ better but don't use as much as Facebook because almost all of my family and friends use Facebook and has never heard of Google+.
