    Why did Google pump out all these applications if they weren't sure they were worth it? I've been reluctant to become reliant on any of their products because of their tendency to just up and hit the proverbial CLOSE button. What a joke.

    Google+ has more active users than Twitter...

    No, Facebook is trash. It's just unfortunate that it has such a large following. :(

    FB is garbage also. Google + is fine, but it just doesnt level up to the content on Twitter.

    All of the apps that were shutdown were pre-Schmidt. Back then they were pumping out applications like crazy, without thinking of the profitable long term. Schmidt took over and started killing all the fat, he is a business man, now he is making sure that all applications "can" generate some sort of revenue (directly or indirectly)
