    Its now a Talk of the mouth that Google plus will beat Face book. I don't think so. What about your opinion?

      Google plus is not a competitor to facebook, it is simply an alternative to facebook likes so Gogole can match the friends like feature of Bing. 

      If the sites you are reading say stuff like that then it is probably time you found a new source of information!

        Not just the sites. Even TV news Channels, news paper headlines, Face book updates are all over hyping Google plus. Which is why I wanted to know general opinion

        He's talking about 'Google+' not the +1 button. It is a tad confusing with the names being so similar.

    Will it kill Facebook?  It would be hard to imagine anything killing off Facebook at this point in time, IMO.  But I've heard some good reviews of it so far.  And I like the idea of the social 'circles'.  As that's personally one reason I've not used Facebook as an online networking tool in the past, to communicate with fellow hubbers, etc.  As I don't necessarily want to share my foolish drunken messages, personal stuff, etc. with folks I don't know in real life.  The same with family.

    I believe Google+ is invite only at this stage, but I'll be up for giving it a try when its open to all.  I can see it being preferable to Facebook for me.

      Well yes!! There are quite a few features which better than those in Face book. Example- creating circles like as you said. One more thing that I like in it is the group video chat option. that's a pretty cool feature.
      But i am sure Zuckerberg is already making plans to keep Face book well expanded in future.

    I don't think Google+ will kill Facebook, but it will give it a run for its money, er, presence.  The difficulty Google faces is luring current FB users away.  They were not first in the market, and being first is the greatest factor in success in technology, especially with apps.

    time will tell....

      Ugh....I use Facebook daily to stay in contact with my friends and family, none of which are teenagers. My aunts, uncles and even grandfather uses Facebook so I think your statement may be just a tad bit false. 

      You do realize that over 70 percent of Baby Boomers use Facebook today and there was an increase of 107 percent of Baby Boomers using Facebook in only one year time from 2008 to 2009?

    You only share with those you chose to share with using facebook, and only those who want to have huge groups of friends have them.  Also I use it to talk to my family and a couple close friends.  I talk to my kids more often on facebook and trade photos with them there more often then on the telephone.

    The only way Google beats Facebook at anything is through acquiring it in a deal. That's it.
