Not so great but not terrible either. One plus point is that Google + facilitates discussion and debates on topics that one may not be comfortable discussing with friends or family. But aside from that it is has serious deficiencies. One of them is the fact that anyone on the Internet can access the full site even if they don't have an account (in contrast to Facebook and Twitter where you have to actually log in to do that). While this may sound good, it really is not. It makes it so that whoever you block for being a douche to you can still see your content even if they don't have an alt; all they need to do is log off. What is the point of blocking if this is the case? Another minus point about Google + is the fact that users who violate its community standards multiple times are allowed to keep on coming back. There was this crazy teenage girl who was banned like six times for making horrific posts promoting racism, demeaning veterans, blaming rape victims for their fate, and encouraging violence against children and animals. Yet she was allowed to keep on coming back. On other sites, she would have probably been permanently ip banned. I believe in freedom of speech but some things just cross the line. The real world doesn't give fourth, fifth, or sixth chances for really offensive remarks so why should Google +? Other than that Google + is an okay site.

Metacafe isn't better than YouTube, Daily Motion, or any of the other video-sharing websites that I have visited. Sometimes the videos on the site have problems playing on my Android phone. But what especially irks me about Metacafe is that its "report video" feature is practically useless. If you report a video for copyright infringement, nothing happens. No response from the admin. This is compared to YouTube, Daily Motion, and Nico Nico videos where you are redirected to a copyright complaint form and asked questions by the admin that will help them determine if your copyright claim is valid. If it weren't for this fact, I would give Metacafe a 3 star rating because it is not otherwise horrible. But since the difficulty in getting videos that infringe on copyright removed is a big problem, I can only give it a 2 star rating.
