    G+ won’t even release how many active users they have. Probably because (as suggested by surveys, anyway) the vast majority of users are completely dormant. I’m pretty surprised people are still peddling what was considered the biggest social media flop since MySpace crashed and burned. Except that at least MySpace had a heyday. Remember when we all switched to Google’s amazing new social network, Orkut?

    Nope, me neither.

    Now excuse me while I get to work collaborating on a project in Google Wave. Oops, never mind.

    Hi Rebecca, thank you for your comment. I agree that Google+ is not as active as Twitter and Facebook, or as relevant as LinkedIn; however, it does have some significant advantages – for example, it is used by a large number of professionals and it includes some interesting tools such as online hangouts, which can be used for online promotion and even meetings. This is why I think that it should not be ignored by recruiters.

    Google + is not facebook, and they are not trying to be one. Basically its just your profile that is connected to your gtalk, gmail, youtube, blogspot, and also that profile if connected to your web site gives you that nice photo in Google results, plus helps your site rank higher. And yes their hang out can replace skype calls (group video is free unlike skype). So yes, we live in Google world, and everyone will have google + account sooner or later.
