The Future of +Google+  : What New Research Reveals

Great article here with deep insights on the status of Google Plus with key takeaways referencing a study done by +Stone Temple Consulting. Includes quotes by +Eric Enge, +Mark Traphagen and +Ryan Hanley.

Good stuff. I plan to use Google+ slightly more than I did in the first half of this year. Simply because I think it's a great content platform. I've always said I never thought it was a social network per se, though I have done plenty of socializing here, it's truly a great content discovery and sharing place.

What are your thoughts?
