The network effect is the same reason Google+ is dead in the water. Even if Google+ were by some objective measure "better" than Facebook, it doesn't matter. All your friends are on Facebook, so you'll go on Facebook too.
By this logic Facebook should be dead, too: five years ago "all your friends" were on MySpace. And before that they all used Friendster.
I'm not saying Google+ will kill the Facebook - I just point out that network effects, while powerful, can be overcome. Not if you shoot yourself in the foot every five minutes, of course.
