Google plus has a suggestion process as to who you might add to "circles".
Here - with only minor editing - are five consecutive suggestions made to me:
I know none of these people though Zuckerberg shares a single Facebook friend with me and I know someone who was in his computer science classes at Harvard.
Google + is getting users fast - and I find myself looking at Facebook much less - but is the appeal of Google + the asymmetric friending process where I can add people like this to my "circles" and pretend that I am far better connected and far more upwardly mobile than in reality?
PS. Does anyone else think it is strange that Zuckerberg winds up in my Google + suggested circle so fast?
