The Social Network Wars: Google+ vs Facebook

Google+ vs Facebook

This infographic from SingleGrain aptly and succinctly describes the primary differences between Facebook and Google+. Which social network will reign supreme?

There are some great stats here. Facebook started out as an exclusive social network at elite universities, so it would be interesting to see a breakdown of the top occupations of their initial userbase. Google+ started out at, well, Google, so the majority of their users are in tech-related fields. The privacy controls for both social networks are the most fascinating. Facebook has some privacy controls, but they're difficult to maneuver, whereas Google+ makes privacy a priority in their interface.

Tell me what you think. Can Facebook retain its staying power as Google+ catches up in membership? Will Facebook gamers stay put instead of moving on to Google+ games, when it arrives? Whose privacy tools function better?
