Joseph thank you for taking the time to comment here. You are quite right regarding the speed at which Google+ has been moving. It is a dictum at Googleplex to do everything "as fast as possible".
We shall see how this translates once the business pages are in place.

"Phase two" is probably a good way to put it.
With Google now officially entering the social gaming space, Facebook may finally have to work a little harder for its meal. And honestly, it's about time! The fact that Google+ is now offering an experience closer to what social network enthusiasts are looking for is a strong sign that it's becoming a viable competitor. The only surprising thing about Google+ branching into social gaming is the fact that it's happening so early in the network's life cycle. As you mentioned, Google+ has done in "just over a month" what "Facebook took a couple of years" to do, and that speaks volumes about the network's sheer potential for growth. Social gaming will only accelerate things further.
Of course, we'll see what the brands have to say about the network's potential once the platform is available to them.
