    Why bother, Google+ can't tackle FB so why should MS be any more successful?

    because they will remove the FB social plugin in the next service pack of office 2010 and force users onto socl... maybe. much less cynical things have hapened!

    G+ is imo is better than Facebook. Just logging in for a few mins and looking round is not going to show you the benefits, you have to actually use it a bit to see why its better.

    Oh don't get me wrong, G+ is miles better! But it's not going to supplant FB and therefore will probably die off.
    I and a group of friends started using it some time ago, but we couldn't tempt anyone else across and we've since moved back to FB

    xkcd: Google+

    Sorry for trotting this out again, but it's my standard response (public and private) to any new 'Social Networking' site that gets launched.

    As someone on here said a while ago, '......A future where computer =iPad and Internet = Facebook' <or insert social networking site of choice>.

    Apologies to who posted that originally, I can't be a***d to search through to find out, but you know who you are, and I thank you for a very quotable.....quote which I use whenever the subject comes up in my 'social network'.

    I hated that site with a passion, Facebook has a much larger mass of users in comparison... will take something very good (or something very bad by Facebook) to make people change with the amount of photos etc loaded up there now.

    From reading comments in the last few days the offensive photos hack seems to have had a big effect... something like that continued over a sustained period would be one way of change happening I guess!

    G+ imports photos from Facebook.

    G+ has a real photo storage / backup solution = picasa

    G+ will never own your photos. The second you upload a pic to facebook they own the rights.
