I think there is a still a sense of "who/what are you?" with G+, as Natascha says, which as we all know seems to be taking a longer time to establish itself with the masses.
However, what I could see it being (growing up) is one of the best community platforms out there - https://plus.google.com/communities. This is especially true when you look at visually rich community groups, like the photography ones, which are exploding rapidly.
As the blog title says, it's certainly one to watch :)

that sounds like a good way to put it.
We know G+ will be "somebody" when she/he grows up, we are just not sure yet exactly what :-).

What precisely is it do you think that G+is lacking to attract he masses? Is it the lack of clarity of what kind of content people think they should share, and what tone to use? As you said, FB is clearly personal and LinkedIn is clearly professional. We haven't quite figured out G+'s identity yet.

I agree that G+ is going to have its moment in the not too distant future, as Facebook is getting more and more full of spam and making it hard to protect our privacy.
IMHO, G+ is more like Facebook than LinkedIn, even though for now, the G+ crowd is more technical and more B2B than FB.
Here is a blog I wrote on the G+ & FB topic to share my opinion :-).
In summary, it seems that instead of going more niche, which I see as the future, most platforms try to be everything. This won't work in the long run, for many reasons (see blog). Unfortunately, LinkedIn seems to be on this ill-chosen path also. I am sure you heard that 13-year-olds will soon be allowed to share content with their friends on the platform (argh!). It has been the best B2B platform for marketing so far.
