Finally, Google+ even made it to the encyclopedia (almost) everyone uses today: Wikipedia. Compared to the Facebook article, the Google+ entry still is relatively short, but since Wikipedia is open for editing to everyone, with an augmenting number of members, the article will certainly be perfected, soonly.
