    Tough question. If Google plays it right it certainly will, but they have some work to do...

    Tend to agree with Tom. Google+ has more functionality, less limitations; I like the circles - a new twist on friend-ing. However, it has to grow more users and quickly, or it will die on the vine. There's a place for Google+...

    Thank you, Karen and Tom, for your comments.

    I think it will be a boon for business once they can get on, particularly with all the other things Google offers, i.e., documents, video, photos, etc. Be interesting to see what happens on the consumer side. I think when brands get up there as well that will draw in a lot more folks. But in any case, the jury is still out. Thanks again for your thoughts.

    Possible, but I wouldn't bet on it. Outside of PR people, marketers and engineers, no one seems really excited about it. SEO consultants will use it (because they feel they have to) but I don't see any compelling reason for most people to join.

    Yes agree with Tom too. Google+ has some very good features - particularly Circles - but it lacks searching (which is a bit bizarre considering this is Google we're talking about) - you can't 'find' people in the same way you can on Twitter by just searching for relevant words that people you might be interested in following are using. You can't view streams of conversations on one related topic. So until all that happens, Twitter is the winner.

    Google plus has big potential to outgrow others since they do have the name recondition with big fan base, but that alone is not a key indicator. I see Google has the ability to innovate next generation products since now they have changed their strategy to more product management and product R&D focus.
