    lackings of Google+

    Google plus is seen to be the possible no. 1 competitor of Facebook in the future. I know it's still in beta version but it lacks some feature for me. What features do you think G+ is missing?

    I think the biggest missing feature for most people (including me) is that most of my friends aren't on G+. Other than that I can't say I miss anything in particular, just that Facebook may be closing the gap between some of the improvements Google+ has and what Facebook offers (such as Facebook lists vs. Google circles).

    Google+ may be a potential No1 competitor to Facebook, but it wont necessarily get anywhere near Facebook any time soon, and we're probably better off that way too since Google has a little too much influence over us already.

    So far, Google+ is still lacking business pages, and hopefully they'll get that part up and running sooner than later.

    This says a lot:

    1) Google+ public postings have decreased by 41 percent over last two months.

    2) Google CEO Larry Page has posted in over a month

    They are experimenting too much. They should Start the full version soon rather than just keeping it on beta and driving the users away (

    Google has so much money they don't know what to do with it.

    They are shutting down "Google Health" which was online personal health records.

    Apple has even more money than Google AFAIK, and don't seem to have a problem with staying focused. Then again being mainly a web company where experimenting is fairly easy I'm not surprised.

    Apple lost focus until Steve Jobs came back in the early 90s.

    Google is about organizing the web and searching it to provide information. It makes more sense to focus on "information" and "innovative technologies" to provide the best results rather than chasing shiny new toys.

    If Larry Page isn't using +1, why should I?
