as +John Taschek mentioned a few Gillmor Gangs ago, the way these things work is that a centralised, monolithic model is quicker to develop, test, deploy and for users to start with. Later upstarts challenge with distributed designs. For example AOL was the way many users started to connect to other users through AOL chatrooms and AOL forums. Later the distributed internet took off and users migrated to multi-layered stack that had them getting internet from one company and visiting the websites of others.

So to the social network industry. Now we see a couple of players: Twitter, Facebook, Google+ (AOL, Compuserve Genie). But at the same time the geeks are using distributed social networks like +buddycloud and eventually users will migrate to a distributed model where companies compete on edge technology rather than trying to run the entire stack.

I think the real goal of g+ is for Google to learn social, and to train as many people as they can to click on +1
