Google+ is more about what you think. It's more about sharing videos, links/thoughts. Kind of like Twitter with a better GUI that doesn't have a 140 character limit and that allows people to make comments directly rather.

Facebook is for my real life family and friends

Google+ is for the people I find common ground on from around the world about politics/religion/sports whatever.

I don't think Google+ is looking replace Facebook's core as being a picture repository, and I think the current focus of Google+ is a far more power value proposition.


Ok, now I'm interested. Anyone got an invite?

I think you are selling the intent and capabilities of G+ way short. The design of circles absolutely positions G+ to compete directly with Facebook (as well as Twitter / Tumblr / LinkedIn / Flickr / etc).
