Well first of all, Google+ gets you recognized as an author in the SERPs so I am seeing that as a huge advantage right now. Otherwise, they're very similar and it just depends how you want to use them. I've kept my Facebook limited to friends and family because it is a great way to keep in touch, but I don't want to get work stuff mixed up in that because it would be like bringing homework to the playground.
G+ has a smaller user-base, yeah, but they're more likely to share interests in technology and politics. Also, Google really wants to use social signals in their search rankings, but Facebook and Twitter are making it hard for others to tap in to their data. So between that and the obvious bias toward their own properties, G+ is probably going to have a disproportionate influence on traffic flows.
Anyway, I just started really using it a few days ago. I'm sure I'll get bored with it in a few more
