A good question. And though +Jonah Peretti and +Danny Sullivan chortled about it, Peretti was clear that he was saying it doesn't work for Buzzfeed. I think it's also clear that all the recent changes with G+ show that Google is shifting how it's used (especially with Gundotra gone now). 

Anyway, +Paula Allen's piece is well-done, and points out the benefits of G+, which were definitely discussed in different parts of the conference. Though not nearly as much as last year or the year before, I'd note.
What Content Goes Hot on Google+?

In response to +Jonah Peretti's comments in the #SMX  Keynote Conversation with +Danny Sullivan, our +Paula Allen opened the discussion to come up with an answer: http://www.bruceclay.com/blog/what-content-goes-hot-on-google/

+BuzzFeed hasn't discovered what really works on Google+, so they don't invest in it as a traffic driver. What about you?

Even if you aren't expecting the 1000s of reshares BuzzFeed does, you want a return for your effort. So Peretti's question remains: What is the "core energy" of this network? What types of content are people really hungry for on Google+?

Tagging people mentioned in the post or who we think are integral to this discussion:
+Matt McGee +Amy Vernon +Mark Traphagen +David Amerland

The #icebucketchallenge  isn't for everyone. I say you shouldn't feel obligated to participate - and that doesn't mean anything bad about you. Your thoughts?

Being humble is underrated. Really like this. Leaders should give credit where it's due. Via +CEOdotcom

Can we have the future we want and still maintain a measure of privacy? My thoughts, and my presentation from last night's +IgniteNYC:

Good stuff from +Tinu Abayomi-Paul. Too many of us get busy and forget to take care of our own business. But it's important to stay on top of it.
