See, if you put the average Silicon Valley geek in front of a TV and tell him to sit on the couch and watch TV for four hours they won???t know what to do. They will start building databases of their favorite shows, start figuring out how to optimize their DVRs so they can fast-forward through commercials faster, and stuff like that.
Normal/average users? They just want to watch TV and drink beer.
So, you getting where I???m going with this? Google+ is for the passionate users of tech. If you just want to sit back and have the system do all the work (which means it???s not perfect, but it???s good enough for most people) then Facebook is gonna be where you stay, especially since your friends are gonna lock you in for quite some time. But if you want to really be able to choose who you listen to, then Google+ is much better.
