Google Plus or MinusRobert Virkus

I've been using Google+ since it was first released and have been playing with it since. Overall, I beginning to like it. First-off, its a chance to start a social network from scratch and maybe avoid some of the errors I made with Facebook. With + you have finer control over your Circles of family and friends. Easier to set-up, control and manage.
One definite advantage is with Picasa, Google's photo editing, managing, and sharing application. If you have +, there no longer is a space limit on how many photos you can upload.
Let's not discuss the merits (or lack thereof) of social networking. As the father of four boys between 16 and 26, scattered across the globe, they work for me.
How big of a gamble is Google taking with this new enterprise? Is there room for one more social network? Or just another flash in the pan like Buzz (if you ever remember it)?
