I wanted to first say thank you for your thoughtful reply, one thing I do like about G+ is the discourse tends to be intelligent.

However, lost my comment 2 times again trying to respond... 

1. Resized the viewport, lost comment when page dynamically responded to window size change.

2. Opened the events link in a new window (via 3rd mouse button click). Moved the mouse, menu hid, cursor was still blinking in my comment box, pushed enter for a line break, the link I had clicked with the 3rd mouse button still had focus and opened with the enter press (losing the comment). 

I’m using a text editor now to be safe.

Granted I’m a bigger multi-tasker than most, but they page still should be protected from changing in the middle of typing a comment. 

Wow, I found the menu with events! There it is! Now, first off, I had no idea this menu existed. Because the menus have no standard place on G+ its hard to guess where stuff is. Some Nav menus are up top, some are on the bottom, some are apparently hidden, there doesn't seem to be an intuitive logic to their placement. All other Google sites tend to have all Nav on the left, filters on the top, options upper right, G+ should do the same. Having a > next to the home didn’t translate to me that it was a menu, I thought it was just a title, I thought the only Nav links I had where to my different circles up top. Why does this menu auto-hide? Why is it not present when the page first loads? It's not even covering up any content. I use single column view, so it's just even more dead space.

On to events, ok you have it. Was about to complain about missing web/ticket/etc links, but looks like you just have to find them hidden in a random menu…I don’t think there is anything “advanced” about wanting to put a URL to ticket sales or a homepage. I don’t think many people would be confused by four input lines labeled “optional”, so why hide them at all? I do like, a lot, a whole lot, the GIF banners for the event. You guys just won a lot of points for that. But, I see no options to pay to promote the event or to add more admins to an event.  I do like the + guest option!

The actual event page, looks pretty nice. However, information is too spaced out and scattered randomly, again, having lots of dead space. Why aren’t the details listed right below the banner? Why in another random box? The map is a joke, it’s too zoomed out and small, and why is number of RSVPs at the bottom of the page? RSVP numbers are one of the bigger selling points for events. 

I checked out a few other things quickly, 

Communities are an interesting alternative to groups …but it seems to me like people are just using it for self-promotion (at least in the featured groups I found)…too much noise trying to get people to go to some random blog with more aggregated content, not enough unique content to the group. This is the same problem Facebook has with large groups, but it doesn’t make it better. 

I clicked pages; it has an option for me to make a page, but not to browse any pages? Wait, I add pages like I add friends on G+? Companies are people on G+?  I understand I could make a new circle for whatever pages to whatever, blah blah blah, nah, too much work, pages should automatically be put into a page group like they are on Facebook. 

Hangouts on air is very cool, I see live online broadcasting becoming revitalized (stickcam and shoutcast all grown up). 

Local is completely useless for me, I don’t get it, just random ads for stuff by me. What does the MOMA and tiffany and company have to do with each other? Why would I care about Tiffany and Company?

So, overall, some good ideas, but the lack of innovation over Facebook, as well as some of the questionable design and UX decisions don’t give me much incentive to use it. I’m sure some of the things I complained about are possible on G+, but they weren’t apparent, so I don’t really care, again I’m not working around kinks to use a redundant social media platform with less active users than it’s competitors. I guess I’ll see what’s cooking next time I log in.
