Google+ is the search giant’s next step in Social Web and yes, it “looks” like Facebook but I don’t really care. Google is expanding its strategy and rebranding a number of popular services like Blogger (now called Google Blogs). Okay.

I’m tempted to say that Google should stick to search.

I’m tempted to say that Google+ is Facebook for grown ups.

I’m tempted to post graphs that sway the argument either way.

Truth is it is way too soon to critique or celebrate the impact Google+ will have on social media (though plenty already have from Forbes to Mashable). I welcome the obvious challenge Google poses to Facebook and other social networks. I also don’t think it matters much as an end-user if Google+ is the proverbial “killer app” or not… mainly because I like having options. So bloggers and journalists have at it and speculate until the cows come home, move into the basement, and start a public access television show. My “knee jerk” reaction is it is all good.
