Google+ introduced a bevy of photo- and video-related features recently, spurring the age-old question as to whether it's a better social network than Facebook.
Truth be told...Google+ and Facebook can't easily be measured in terms of their status as social networks. Facebook is all about connecting people, while Google+ is attempting to be a hub for your entire online life. The most recent example is the integration of Google+ comments on YouTube. Some saw it as a streamlining of products and services under Google's umbrella, and more astute industry observers realised it could have bigger implications.
