Google+ (Plus) app has hidden NFC sharing
Once you've collected the three magical items, you'll be able to share information from NFC tags through the Google+ app. The uses seem fairly limited right now, but the app will automatically read text content from an NFC tag, so this feature could easily be used to share location data, check-in data, or even bring people into a Huddle conversation.

given the buzz that it's already generated, why would you think it will be a failure? also, by what metric would it be deemed a failure?

Hey google plus good luck, do u allready have a million users? well keep it up you need 749 millions more to equal facebook =D

Ah, I see. You think that the sheer number of users is the end game. Unfortunately, that's not true. The end game is being able to generate more relevant data that can be used in other things like search recommendations, news feeds, shopping recommendations, and of course advertising.
It's the quality of the data, not the number of users. That's why Twitter is already a more useful platform than Facebook, and why Plus has a shot to be better as well.

don't put your effort there, he has no actual interest of seeing a good argument, just a glance at his comments around the page can tell you that.
Google + has already few features I currently don't have on Facebook and that I've always wanted, so far is being rather accepted by the media and may become versatile. depending on how fast Google makes the platform more appealing and useful to its users, and they seem rather good at it lately

I assumed it would be a lost cause from the original post. I've said what I wanted, and I'm out.
