# Rather than rewrite full posts, here are a few recent items that have been posted on Google+ and generated some good discussion:
Google+ has a perception problem but is there really a wrong way to use it? Vic Gundotra thinks so.
Twitter and Facebook have been taking different approaches to the problem of duplicate content. How could we learn from these attempts and possibly apply similar principles to Google+?
We must be careful when requesting ever more complex functionality for our social networks. By making services fit the needs of the early adopter we risk losing wide-ranging appeal so must be careful what we wish for.
Figures indicate that users are spending less time on Google+. Are the figures accurate or are they measuring the wrong thing? Should Google be worried? Is it just a question of averages and what can be done to boost time on the service?
Do we gain the most benefit from following "people" or do we need to think about subscribing to topics? Why do we use social networks and are they actually suited to interest based discussion?
If you haven't already done so, check them out and have your say.
