Looks like it didn't help Myspace a few years ago:

Also, Google's offering group chat for free; for FB users to use Skype's group chat one of those people must be paying $4.99 a month.

MySpace was losing market share, whereas Facebook is growing.  Not only growing...it's the 800 lb. gorilla and will be very hard to displace.  My friends and family who use Facebook are hooked...almost addicted.  It will only be a natural transition to incorporate live video chat into there.  Cheers!

I'm already "friends" with nearly everyone I interact with on a regular basis on Google+.  It's really simple: they're the people I email on weekly basis!  They haven't even opened it up yet!  In a few weeks I won't cancel my FB account but will hopefully rarely visit FB.  The integration (the black bar at the top of all Google apps) is indeed another guerilla in the room, IMO (with the accompanying notification box that turns red when you have one).  They already have tens of millions of people leaving their "messages" app open all day long; I'm sure they'll better incorporate that with + soon.
