Worst Media Appearance: Calling Google+ Dead?

Google Appliance as shown at RSA Expo 2008 in ...Image via WikipediaI found an article on Mediashift, at calling Google+ dead. Saying that it's "worse than a ghost town". One day after official launch...

While I don't link to that piece of crap article, which might've only been posted to get readers, I'll wrote an comment in the net, that I want to share with you, too.

Does it really matter for the users?
I mean there were a lot of great people there. I got the most value out of it from any social network. Helpful, kind and fun.
If it’s getting main-stream web, I’ll see the same crap than at Facebook. I can understand that “being Facebook” in terms of amount of users, is the target for SEOs, businesses and, perhaps, for Google itself. But it’s not the user’s target, that wants quality posts and info. I’ll keep posting to Google+. It’s the best thing around. So will many highly reputability people and interesting thinkers. If you do not want to read that, it’s maybe not the worst thing for Google+ Users if you stay at Facebook, right? :)
I want everyone to use G+, but it’s not the end for me, if G+ ends up being a place for a few interesting geeks on the web.

So, I can't believe this happened, but that's what you will read from the Anti-Google alliance in the coming weeks.

What do you think? Do you believe it's important for yourself to have 750+ million people on the platform?
