Google+ Are you willing to ditch Facebook for this?

I'm really liking the site.
Cosplays did not happen in 2009, thanks to finals. Things are not looking good in 2010 either :/ I may not make it til Acen until Sat. evening.

It reminds me too much of my actual life.
Needs to be livened up a bit before I make the switch. However, I do like the privacy. Facebook is starting to get a little weird.
Okay. Has been weird for a while now.

I don't use my webcam much, but it sounds cool you can do stuff with it on G+. I'm not saying G+ isn't going to take over FB (it very well could) but until all my friends and contacts leave to it, I'm not in any rush to do G+ only. They need something that will make it THE network to use. Google is a powerhouse, they'll figure out something good. One recommendation I have is figure out something to incorporate elements of popular sites such as Groupon/Yelp.
Right now, I see Facebook as THE network, but 13 years ago if you told me people would stop using AOL, I'd think you were crazy. How wrong was I...

From the looks of it, it has the potential to become another Facebook, ballooning to unmanageable proportions and privacy becomes a secondary issue, but from the looks of it, even if they do, at least they saw the criticism that Facebook gets on a daily basis in regards to privacy and decided to not go down that road. KUDOS! This is the advantage that Google+ has, IMO, since they saw all the issues and negative aspects of Facebook and were able to figure out ways of dealing with them.
So my major concern is if I set up a Google+ account, will I use it? Or will I just let dust bunnies build up because either nobody I know uses it or it becomes so difficult to keep up that I just give up? Since this is what happened with me and Facebook, despite having joined during the era when you needed a college email. It just got so noisy and difficult to keep up with all your friends that I just decided that it wasn't worth it... Never had the motivation to catch up since the apps made Facebook more annoying, and then anyone with an email could join, and then it was revealed that anything uploaded to Facebook was technically now the property of Facebook. But... now with people having learned what to do and what not to do on Facebook (remember when news first came out that recruiters started rejecting applicants because they saw profile pictures of you drinking) and realizing the fads (like having thousands of "friends") and such, should they choose to set up a Google+ account, it'll be a bit like a fresh start, a reboot. Hope Google+ doesn't take on the cons of Facebook...

Of course, I don't believe any social network site is all about "privacy"...
But this is pretty nice haha. It'll be hard getting my friends to switch and make me not so lonely. They are all very "facebook is enough" type people.
