Anyone else using Google+?

I for one can't stand facebook and the only reason I have an account on there is because of the website's facebook page.
With that being said and the progressions of the smartphones, mainly android and the tighter integration of google+ they are implementing and also thinking about being able to share pictures with family I thought we would give it a try.
We recently got mom and dad a smartphone, granted they probably won't ever use all of the features but at least this way they have a camera with them at all times and I am going to set them up with google+ along with some of our other family members.
We tend to take a lot of pictures when we are out and about and from different events like Christmas, tractor shows, birthdays, etc.. Seems like it would be a decent way to share those pics, instead of having to carry them with you on a flash drive, or on the phone itself and then have to transfer them to the other persons computer.
I know you can do that stuff on facebook but like I said I can't stand it. I don't know how long it will be until google starts having ads on their + pages and only time will tell.

I have an account but haven't checked it for 2 months. Right now it's just another thing to steal my time from family and tractors. Maybe I'll get more into it in the future.
That is one of the reasons why I think it is probably best for family sharing. I am uploading pictures from my BIL's wedding to my wife's account. Her mom hasn't seen all of them and it is a good way to test to see how it is going to work. I haven't used it at all up until today and I am just testing the waters.

When I post pics on the forum though I like to upload them directly, that way if a link ever changes the pictures don't get lost.
