My answers to questions from AnyAsq.com. Ask me anything here
One thing is very clear Google+ is here to stay. We can safely expect its membership to rise from 10mn to say 100mn or so in 6 months to 1 year time as the field trial ends and more members join.
This will probably be the record for the fastest organic growth achieved by any of the social networks ever.
Based on the engineering culture of Google, I believe they are going to improve considerably simply because Google has a very top notch team of experts headed by Vic Gundotra and Bradley Horowitz. and they have finally got things right.
What else will change?
1. There will be more Apps not just the fun stuff but apps which will solve problems of organizations and businesses i.e. more for community management and engagement.
2. People will discover many more uses of Google+ from work place to crisis response as in earthquakes etc.
4. For lots more people and businesses using Gmail and Google products will be default as they will be placed around Google+, their social identity.
