So far, Google+ is really good for:
- Aggregating high-res profile pictures
- Discussing features of Google+

(to my understanding) +1 button shows approval, but doesn't reshare. Approval of websites can create annotations on those websites in search for your friends. You can see all websites you've +1'ed on your profile (and set privacy restrictions so that everyone else or no one else can see it too). On comments, the button is mostly to show approval. You should see a blue number by the comment if your +1 worked.

Why are "Posts" and "Buzz" separate? Is there any reason why Buzz and Twitter updates don't show up in the Stream? I may be completely misunderstanding the point of Stream, but I thought it was supposed to be the central aggregator of new information.

I agree - I want to have a single place to check Twitter, Facebook, and now Google+.
