    Comparing Google+ to Facebook does far too much credit to Google+.

    Facebook totally dominates time spent online, and Google is not even in the top two.

    And bear in mind that Facebook is part-owned by and closely partnered with Microsoft, and the search on Facebook and other features are powered by Bing.
