So far I like it. Although I do see a need for some usability enhancements. Would love to be able to "pin" a post to the top of a category. The ability to toggle post content visibility (under the titles) would be nice too. Lots of vertical scrolling as the community post timeline grows.
I have yet to use the hangout feature, but will do so as the need arises. I do believe this is a great feature, and will become more widely used as people begin to understand how it works.
People have asked me what Google+ is. My simplified explanation is that it's like a hybrid social network. A cross between Facebook, Twitter and email.
Here's the real question...will Facebook and Twitter loyalists give it a try? With the number of Android based phones out there, my guess is yes. Why? I would think it is inevitable that folks will stumble across the G+ icon on there smartphones. Google needs to (and probably will) encourage companies to bake their G+ URLs into advertisements like they have been doing with Twitter and FB. Speaking of which...vanity URLs for G+ Communities must be just around the corner. Seems like a logical progression to me.
