    I know skype is tight-fisted about multi-person video calls but that's the only way it would interest me.

    Please, do explain to me how Google+ will steal the gigantic userbase Facebook as developed? Oh that's right, it won't.

    I doubt that Facebook's insane userbase, composed of an extreme variety of people including old ladies and middle aged parents, will suddenly shift to Google+ for some reason.

    QFT, Google won't succeed, simple as that. If none of my friends use it, I'm not going to use Google +.
