Quick Question of the Week: Google+ -- Yes or No

Blogger Robin Ferrier starts a new feature: Question of the Week. This week she wants to know whether people are using Google+

So usually I'm on here with a Quick Tip. Not this week. This week, I'm instituting a new feature: My Quick Question of the week. Because no matter how much I think I know about social media, PR, and marketing, I know that there's still a lot I don't know.

So my question this week is simple:

Google+: Yes or No?

I have an account, but I haven't actually logged in to it in, well, months, if I'm being honest.

I have my reasons, the main one of which is lack of time. When it comes to social media, I spend most of my time on Facebook and Twitter, though I'm just dipping my toe into the Pinterest pond. (More on that later.) I also spend a little time on Flickr and YouTube. So when Google+ launched, I created an account so I could understand what it was. But it quickly became just another place I HAD to go, even though I admit I liked some of its functionality better than Facebook. But it just seemed like more people were on Twitter and Facebook.

How about you all? Are you on Google+? Do you actually spend time there? (According to a Mashable article, users only spent 3.3 minutes there last month. That doesn't bode well for its future.)

If you're there, why? And if not, why not?
