Google+ "threatens" Facebook? Are you reciting Google's press releases verbatim? They're the only ones who could possible think that G+ threatens Facebook in any way.

Google+ has 25 million users versus Facebook's 750 million. Google also has a proven track record of falling flat on its face with its social media ventures. Can you say Orkut? How about Buzz?

I'm sure Mark Z isn't a bit worried. As one of the 25MM who signed up to check out G+, I have a hard time believing it will gain any real traction. It's certainly not a "threat" to Facebook. That's a knee-slapper!

Where is this business park? Although I read the article and the linked page, I could not see an address.
