Default Both

Use both if you can spare the time to thoughtfully maintain them.

Until now it's been noticed that Google Brand Page will make your search results better if used correctly. Whereas Facebook will divert huge amount of traffic.

Agree, SEO nowadays really needs social media to promote more.

Facebook fan pages are definitely more effective right now, but I think G+ will be a competitor towards the end of this year. They still have a few kinks to work out on their user interface before people accept it, and they should probably enable custom profile urls so everyone doesn't have to use gplus.to

Google+ can be good for marketing business, but you can get better results if you will use Facebook fan page along with it.

I am undecided on this one. Facebook has millions and millions and millions and millions of visitors daily so exposure for your website is very good. However, Google+ is owned by, well, Google so they might give posts there a higher priority than Facebook.

I've observed very closely that doing +1 n your targeted keywords links helps in a bit accuracy of Google's search engine results.

Why is this an either/or question? Why not use both? And what about LinkedIn? Twitter? YouTube? Pinterest?

IMO, the key is to figure out where your audience is, then use the platform they use. This means the answer to this question may potentially be different for different businesses.

IMO, the biggest mistake in social media marketing is assuming there's one "right" answer that fits all situations.

Yeah, I agree with the rest. There is no harm in trying both. As we know, Facebook drives more traffic than Google + but Google + is own by google. If we use both we will gain more traffic.
