Yes, Google+ is Google's answer to Facebook, but not in the directly competitive sense many journalists assume. Google+ is core to Google's mission "to organize the world's information", and that's a better frame for thinking about this service.
Here are 35 slides to help kickstart a different perspective on what Google+ really is - a "shared interest graph."
I tried to make this tour as easy as possible with some nice images along the way. Credits for all those nice images are on the last slide.
