I dont really understand the dislike of g+. Personally, i like it alot. I really enjoy browsing the 'whats hot' list, and then hopping over and checking out what's happening in my town. my friend's list is relatively quiet which is fine as i dont really use it to keep up with my friends anyways. To me, i think of it as a nice blend of twitter and facebook...it's good stuff... at least in my town.
