Its notable the architecture of Google+ when it came into 
existence,directly resembles the already existing beta of *Diaspora ;)
I would tend to agree with you,David ... i have an ambiguous attitude to 
social media ... i just feel i dont need it ... however i know quite a 
few people who find it enjoyable,or even essential ... and alternatives 
to the unpleasantness that is Facebook/Google+ would be welcome ... i 
guess the choices are *Diaspora uses Ruby libraries and Frendica or 
http://gnu.io/ tend to be Php ... some others to consider are 
http://www.mediagoblin.org/ or 
http://www.tribler.org/trac/wiki/whatIsTribler ... best of luck :)
