Google+ is out in Beta. I know several folks here use it and I want to know how and why. I've read that the Google+ app is a battery hog. Is it? Do you prefer it over the facebook app? Why? I'm not being a curmudgeon here. I'm a Facebook user and use it to keep up with my kids and the rest of the family. I also know I can connect the two accounts, I just don't see a reason to bother.
