Making new friends is easy with Google+
I've also noticed that it's extremely difficult to find people by location on Facebook. On Facebook you can search people by what store they work in and what school you went to... that's nothing. Google+ now has a 'search' feature and you can type in what city, county, store, anything. Using the 'search' feature in tangent with the 'people' option a nice list of relative people show up. This puts Google+ far ahead of Facebook when it comes to making new friends.
As of now Google+ is far more streamlined and intuitive then Facebook, but it will be an interesting race.
