Some from the reading:
"Itís been a couple of weeks since Google+ launched, and with the exception of China already blocking its use, people do seem to like it. Thatís good news for Google after the failures of Buzz and Wave, and bad news for Facebook who now has a serious competitor in the social network space.

You may think Google could sit back and watch the Google+ network grow, but that would be a mistake. The search company has realized it canít just watch what happens, it needs to respond to users quickly in order to keep them happy and the network growing. While the general view of Google+ is a positive one, thereís also a lot of criticism and user feedback of which Google is about to tackle."
