Google + vs FB

I have registered my account on the new "Facebook killer app" (as media calls it), Google+. Can't say that I am too impressed. It is a quite simple UI, too large fonts (what will happen to that news feed when there are as many users as on FB?), not much happens in there and what is the real purpose of it - other then "killing FB"? One cool thing though, is "Circles" which means that I can add anyone I like without that person approving it, just to be able to follow them like on Twitter. So it has not that security restrictions like FB has. But still you can of course control who can read your updates and so on. I would like to be able to add my Twitter feed, and also add my blog feed to it so that all my networks are connected. Have not seen any functionality for that yet. Also, I was invited to join G+ with my private mail and not my gmail account and now I can't change that, which is really stupid. I would rather use my gmail account so the mail is connected.
Anyway, I will give it some time and see if it gets more interesting, but for now I prefer good old FB :)
