Google is a behemoth of a company that has done some incredible things. It's search engines dominate market share, it owns YouTube, and it makes massive fortunes on advertising revenue and SEO through its AdWords and AdSense programs and other alliances. They have hundreds of other excellent programs such as Google Places, Google Maps, Analytics, Alerts, apps, among many others I've utilized with great success. Gmail dominates the market and G-Chat via email took over AOL Instant Messenger. They also make a pretty good phone in the form of the Android. They have some of the best and brightest minds in the world working for them, billions in revenue, and stock value in the hundreds of billions of dollars. You would think that they could do absolutely anything in an exciting new way!
What makes Google + different or more unique than Facebook? Not much more than what I just mentioned except for the "Circles" you can divide your contacts by. This can be useful for many people unlike myself that actually want to only share certain information with certain groups of contacts such as coworkers, family, friends, employers, clients, prospects, etc. That way you can make your silly and immature posts and hopefully only your friends will see it, or post family pictures and news without having some weirdos you've never met see them. Maybe you are trying to converse with potential employers or clients without your current or past employers seeing your posts (although LinkedIn or just plain email would seem the better choice for this type of discussion).
