What is this Google Plus?

Google+ is taking over our lives. The thing is, most of us have no clue what it is and how it's going to affect our everyday social networking. Should we be afraid? Should we be excited? The fact that it has Google's name to back it up means that the potential is great to synchronize contacts and friends, but what's the point of it? Facebook may have a new enemy but as we continue to be enthralled by new technology everyday, I wonder if we, as a generation, will ever reach a breaking point with all of this social media? How much privacy are we losing as we continue to join these new networks and what consequences will we face in the future? Time will tell, but until then, I'm signing up!
