Google = Let me help you with your data.
Facebook = You suck! I own everything.

For Apple, it is part of the business model. Not sure how that can work as a social networking company's strategy.

Backdoor invite is actually a 'feature' it seems
Dave Besbris originally shared:
 
Evening wonderful Google+ people! I'm starting to see a meme developing that there is a "backdoor" that skirts the invite system if you share to people who aren't using Google+ yet. That's actually not a backdoor, it's a feature. :)

We know that not everyone you want to share with is using Google+ yet and that perhaps your Grandma may be too busy playing Angry Birds on her iPad to ever join any social site. We allow you to easily share content to these folks via email, and in that email is an invitation to see your content and sign up if they want.

Well, that is the case when we are accepting new users. These invitations, like the more obvious kind, are all subject to our super secret formulas, mind numbingly complex algorithms (and nice guy named Brian who is watching a lot of graphs).

We are extremely proud of this product and want to grow it thoughtfully during its Field Trial, so thanks for your patience.

MySpace co-founder Tom Anderson on what it means to have + arnd
Tom Anderson originally shared:
 
Google+ seems like a "reaction" to Twitter/Facebook. But are you starting to see the ways that Google+ just makes Google a better, more integrated set of services? Google already has top-notch products in key categories--photos, videos, office productivity, blogs, Chrome, Android, maps and (duh) search. Can you start to see/imagine what Google+ does for Gmail? Picassa? Youtube? Not to mention search? The +1 system that Google now has control of (unlike Facebook Likes) can really influence and change the nature of their search.

My original vision for MS was that everything got better when it was social--so I tried to build all the super popular things used on the web (blogs, music, classifieds, events, photos) on top of MySpace's social layer. When Yahoo launched 360, MSN launched Spaces, and Google launched Okrut, I was shakin in my boots. But quickly I saw that it's really hard to layer in social to features after the fact. At MySpace we had the luxury of having social first, and building the products on top of that layer. Then I choked and Facebook realized that vision. ;-)

But Google+ really seems to be primed to make good on that original premise--that everything gets better when its social. And unlike FB, Twitter, or anyone else, Google already has the most advanced set of products. And if I can clearly see where this is headed, then I think what we are getting is a much better Google. Does that kill FB/Twitter? Who cares? I'd use all 3, but more importantly, I'll be using Google products I never used, or use them in new, better ways I never used them before.

Oh yah and I love my Google TV :)
