Susan - What evidence is there that Google+ is not meeting Google's expectations? Have you seen statemente from Google to that effect?

Interesting, cmophil. According to my observations there is a substantial change concerning Twitter that seems to be leading Twiiter to sail in different waters.

Mitch, it's not what I believe. It's how things are.

Oh Twitter is great. I use it mainly for search purposes. You can find so much good content and material on Twitter very quickly just by searching for a topic. For example, when I need to find out the latest info on a tech topic, I hop on Twitter and do a search for it. The results are full of recent and worthy material that I would probably spend hours filtering through on Google. It's great!

Susan - What leads you to believe Google+ isn't meeting Google's expectations? We're seeing some figures that it's growing fast, and it certainly seems very active when I look in on it.

cmophil, 

Oh, you are absolutely right! Unfortunately for Google, G+ didn't work so well as expected. This may change, though. Who knows. It may be good for some people. We all don't have the same needs or choices in social media, just as everything else. 

Skype works well for me. As you say, it's the default platform I use. Changing it to Hangouts, well, I haven't seen the point yet. And this said from someone who likes to adapt new things, but to adapt new things I have to see a good reason, too. 

What do you use Twitter for? 

-Susan

Ah I see. So there value proposition is that I get the unified experience. Now I don't have to logon to both Twitter AND FB.. Does that sound like a good summary?

I hear you on that but if you already have a rapport with certain people, for most, isn't Skype already the default platform to use to communicate with them, especially en masse? What makes G+ the 'thing to use' now? That's what I don't get.

How about this... If FB buys a social video or live communication platform provider in the near future, expect G+ hangouts to disappear quickly.

How are you measuring visibility and interaction on your G+ page? I would like to see Google Analytics integration for personal and business pages.

I enjoy watching G+ activities grow with adoption. Android developer office hours have gone virtual, fledgling singer/song writer Daria Musk got a Grammy-winning director Chris Robinson to direct her first video (this happened earlier this afternoon), and Trey is the king of social HDR photographers.
