Overall, I like the feel of Google+ and the G+ apps, but no one I know uses them to any meaningful degree.

Google+ is to Facebook what Android is to iOS... a direct copy with "Google" in front of it.

Google = the boring, copying, evil, monopoly of this day. Avoid it like the plague.

Hangouts are nice, but I can't stand Google+. I got an account early and thought it would be cool, but it was disappointing.QUOTE]

LOL don't tell me... "beta?"

I got in with Gmail nice and early, to realise it's just a copy of *insert known webmail service... let's say hotmail.*

During those days Google was just a free search engine so seemed new and oozing with potential.

Now they have billions of dollars from scraping user data/advertising/significantly changing the once profitable adsense conditions. When ~$500 adsense cheques turned into ~$00.05 adsense cheques and adwords started charging tenfold, I smelled the cheese.

Google _______ is Google's second rate copy of a known commercial product. All paid for by ads/user privacy/user data.

Their one good product is their search engine. Why did they have to take over the world?

Do we really need another Facebook, Google? You had the oppitunity to build a social network around videos with the power of YouTube. But no. You wanted a slice of the Facebook action. And now nobody gives a **** about G+.

Is this by the same Google that recently told a court it's users have no reasonable expectation of privacy in regards to their gmail accounts? According to Google it is OK for it to view users email. No thanks.
