How many of you live streamed the superbowl? Did you find that your experience was enhanced or improved?

I'm still not completely abandoning facebook. Plus I think a number of my nontechie friends and family will be slow to migrate and likely won't ever migrate.

The author of this post though does provide a clever trick for updating your status, with caveats, both on G+ and Facebook. (I'm thinking this will be a valuable trick for Brand Profiles once that feature launches.)

"You can update your status on both networks at once using Facebook's "Upload via Email" feature. Just head to Facebook's mobile page, copy your Upload via Email email address, and add it to its own "Facebook" circle on Google+. "

This guys quibbles with G+ and what it misses on are a tad picayune. His ideas regarding circles are interesting, Google should take note, I agree with his points that I should control my interests and how they are tagged, not my friends. Sparks I should think will be modified and or streamlined. And Brand Profiles are coming Mr. Bennett, sheesh.

Thus far G+ is populated with early adopters, the tech elite (I like to think of myself that way, don't you?), but how many typical facebook users have made the jump? All in all, here is the best point the author of this post makes.

"The people who are most active about the threat posed by Facebook, or what it is that they don’t like about the platform, are often the same people mentioned in this article. That is, early adopters, tech pundits, web entrepreneurs, journalists and high-profile bloggers. But cool as a lot of these guys are, they aren’t normal people. They aren’t the majority. They aren’t the hundreds of millions of people who use Facebook to chat with friends and family, and to play games. There’s fundamentally no reason whatsoever for these same people to leave Facebook and move over to Google Plus. Even if Google Plus copies Facebook exactly there’s no reason, as they already have what they need on Facebook."

If you're looking to import your Facebook friends into Google+, this looks like a workaround: http://goo.gl/3spKH
