    1. I think G+ will easy grab nerds, google fanboys and Facebook haters. “Hangouts” has  skype-killing potential. At the moment there’s not a compelling feature set for the average user. 

      Social networks are all about friends. If Google makes it extremely easy for anyone with an existing Google account to opt-in and if notifications automatically show up in a toolbar whenever you’re on a Google property; if they partner with sites or create Facebook-connect-style single sign-on (maybe allow sites to install the toolbar to enable it?), then G+ has the potential for becoming *the* defacto social network, by brute force.
