Google+ provides a viable alternative to Facebook where people can store and share their photos, thoughts, locations, and more. You also get group messaging as well as audio and video conferencing.

Pros

Easy log-in: If you have any other Google app installed on your device, and you've already logged in to it, Google+ will automatically detect it and set you up.

Automatic photos backup: If you enable the feature, every photo you take will be uploaded to a private gallery on Google+, creating a reliable backup and allowing you to delete the photo from your device -- thus reclaiming storage space.

Amazing interface: Google+ features an amazingly fluid and playful interface. The designers have struck a great balance between form and function, allowing you to get to most common functions quickly while making the experience very pleasant.

Cons

Modular experience: In order to keep the app fast and responsive, some elements of Google+, such as Hangouts, have been separated into their own apps.

Bottom Line

If you're tired of Facebook, and you find yourself using more and more of Google's services, a switch to Google+ may be tempting. However, since a social network centers around people, you need to get your friends to make the jump as well, which makes such a transition a lot harder.
