Great overview, Claire. I've been reluctant to dive too far into Google+ for the same reasons you mentioned (and the fact that Google Wave was such a non-event). Plus, it seems FB and Twitter will add similar functionality in time, especially if Google+ proves a viable competitor long-term.

Thanks for reading, Dave! Glad to have you back home and back at Drake!

I'd dive in more enthusiastically if I didn't have to go through the work of adding new contacts to my circles. I suspect an "import your Facebook friends" function, however, would change things for a lot of people.

The problem is the few amount of people that are probably on Google+. Most people I know are on Facebook, but only a few people I know are on Twitter. For people really into social media, like us, we are likely to use more SM mediums, but the general public is not. I just don't see that many general users, who are the majority of the users probably anyways, making the transition.
