Not sure why I need to recreate the social graph. FB and LinkedIn and Twitter working just fine, thanks. What's the value proposition here, Googlers?

Paul Allen: Best answer to your question so far comes from a great FT article today by...um... you. You quoted Eric Schmidt as saying “All the products in the company will evolve the Circles function,” he said." Given the one billion person reach of the other Google properties, that will provide incredible power to all Google customers for immediately sharing anything they want with the right circles. It's all very breathtaking. Great article, BTW!
Heather Buckley: Unlike FB you can follow really interesting people without them following you back, you can choose which feeds to look through at any time once you have organised your circles.
Also unlike twitter you can have a conversation with many like-minded people and have the space to say something.
You can target your posts to specific groups.
