Okay so we now have a Facebook group (if we want, we can gave a G+ community later). First, we need to make this one active. But I see no headways. Ofc, it'll take time, but come on, let's show some initiative, everybody :D

We just have to get it started and once it picks up, I'll start publicising it. Let's get some good discussions and technical questions in there.

Here's the link, if someone needs it right now: https://www.facebook.com/groups/webplatform.org/

There's nothing else happening in the mailing list, otherwise we could port the discussion to the group. But let's not get disappointed and start fresh discussions. Everything starts small and we don't need top-notch discussions or serious matters right now. Just easygoing stuff posted once a while and people commenting/liking it. That's all I need.

Btw, I'll be offline for a few days. I'll be back by Thursday I think, and I expect good activity by then, so that I can begin publicising.

Good luck everyone!

I tend to disagree. In my circles it tends to be the other way around, actually, Facebook is dying down more and more, and mainly consists of people posting links and cute baby pictures, while the forums I am part of on Google Plus are quite active. 

My personal experience, based on my interests, and my circles is that food and healthy living discussions are very animated on Facebook
Technical discussions and photo discussions, especially around techniques etc are very active on G+.

I agree with the suggestion to have both; 
Some users prefer Facebook, and refuse Google+
Other users prefer Google+ and refuse Facebook.
Other users distinguish between what they do on different social networks, and use FB for private matters and discussions and Google+ for public or professional.  

We need to offer the alternatives. But yes, there will also be some discussions that are on one rather than the other platform, I personally think that is OK.
