Why are you using Google Plus?
Having been in Internet marketing since 1994, I saw the convergence of Social and SEO a while ago. After doing some testing, we saw that search could be influenced, naturally, and companies that had penalties could use G+ to balance out the negative effects.
Add to that, the incredible ecosystem that Google has given us to make meaningful relationships and the ability to connect with like minded people.
