re: 5 Ways Google Should Expand Google+
The "beta" model does seem to be working against Google with this Google+. It's certainly been successful, but you have to wonder how much more effective the platform would be if it had been released in a more traditional manner. It seems the nature of a social networking platform would demand more openness for success.

You're kidding right?
G+ has been a huge success, and i see it growing far past 300 million users before years end.

Excellent product ideas. But maybe Google should first expand their IT infrastructure so everyone who wants a Google+ account can get one. Google+ is heavily dependent on network externalties. By limiting the number of users, Google is reducing the value of its product.

It also needs to reexamine its name policy.

re: 5 Ways Google Should Expand Google+
On the Google Apps side, I can't vouch for other people but personally would like separate work and personal streams to some extent. It's already so hard to disconnect from work, the last thing I want is a notification from my boss when I'm on a social network for personal reasons.

On gmail integration, I guess it wouldn't harm me if it was there as a view in my mail interface, but I doubt I'd use it that much. I'm trying to stay away from email in general.

I'm with you 110% on the Sites integration.

Overall good article.

Why should they expand when the talk around Google's campus is already whether or not Google+ is worth saving, or if they should let it go the way of Wave before it gets any more embarrassing?
