  1. I’d personally personally favor Google. Both FB and Google would benefit from it, but we would likely benefit more from Google taking it over. In the case of Google+ it is just a matter of time. Facebook was lucky it didn’t seriously need to compete with something as “good” as facebook, the competition was just lacking a lot of features plus a global approach.Google+ is superior to Facebook, but it surely has a bigger challenge to have popular.Just have a look at VHS and Betamax. Betamax was better but lost due to bad marketing/licensing.Danny recently posted..Black & Decker NPP2018 18-Volt Cordless Electric Pole Chain Saw
