It has now grown to the second largest social network, surpassing Twitter.
Facebook is still in the lead – it will take a while for G+ to overtake them, but I’d imagine in time they will.
What is the difference between Facebook and G+, through the eyes of a X LAPD motor cop?
From a Business and Connection perspective – Facebook seems to be the cocktail party where you have arrived late and where everyone is blitzed out of their mind.
Google Plus is the party that is just starting, where people have manners, and where the dress code is business casual.

I was a FaceBook fan, I still get onto facebook, but you can be assured I’m trying to get everyone I know on that platform to join and connect with me on Google Plus.
If you are wondering why you’d want to join yet another social network – this is not the same. Sure, you have pictures of cats, bunnies and babies to contend with, but the “community” aspect is wholly collaborative.
I get more usable intel from the communities I am a part of on Google Plus. I get more “worth while” interaction between associates that are in the same career field. I also am able to “share more of others” on Google+.
Sharing someone else posts and showing them you are liking the work they are putting into the platform, is awesome.
Sure, you could do similar things with Facebook – liking and sharing on your page, but Google plus is more “topic focused”.
In a world of noise and clutter – it’s nice to be able to go to Google Plus and interact without having to follow a trail of shoulder high boxes stacked throughout the room.
