G+ is still new. Only after people start using it as a primary network will we get the true reviews.
Looks like Google is also planning on Google Games to take on Farmville and Mafia wars.
Get Ready for Google+ Games

balash SaysThe general reaction so far to G+ has been negative... lets see how they fare in days 2 come
Two things caught my eye on this recently. The first is that Google+ is more than just a social network.
The author goes beyond just the Fb / twitter vs Google argument which was interesting. I have also noticed that articles shared by my friends on Google+ is getting into my Google reader stream. So I feel the guy is onto something.
The other one is that 75% of the Google+ users are male.
Google+ Users Are Nearly All Male
As it is well summed up
Its true that the early adopters of any new technology are usually male. But Google+ will have to appeal to a mainstream audience if its to reach mass adoption anytime soon. Consider the gender breakdown for Google+s biggest competitor, Facebook. The social network is close to a 50-50 split between men and women. And some of Facebooks most addicted, most enthusiastic users are women.
I was reading an opinion that Facebook defeated Orkut because of the profile pictures of the fairer gender. Since Facebook allowed you to tag friends, having flowers or babies as your profile pic for the girls did not serve any purpose. Thus Facebook became more "social". Whole article is attached below. I think the author might be a little crude in referring to "chics" but it has some merits.

That said, the movie Social Network brings it out very well, that guys are there since they want to hang out with Women and know if they are single. If 75% of the Google+ user base is male, it is going to be very frustrating. And as we have seen with Google wave. When things get frustrating, it does not pick up.
