Google+ Redesign Further Mimics Facebook - ABC News -
Some signs point to Facebook duplication, others to a larger integration across its search and video Web portals. Brian Solis, Altimeter Group’s principal analyst and author of “The End of Business as Usual,” told ABC News that the network’s changes “show promise,” noting that ”the world doesn’t need another Facebook. And, Google must communicate its long-term vision to help the company continue the momentum its building on today.” He added, “In the future, Google’s value will be greater than just search and social, it will be the integration of Google’s business and lifestyle services into one seamless experience that serves as a personal OS … a digital hub for people to share, communicate, transact, work, learn and collaborate.” - Brian Solis
