Also Facebook has "Acquaintances" now so you can set all those people on your Friends list that you barely know as Acquaintances and their stuff only shows up on your feed when really important events happen like a move or marriage. And there is also now a "Close Friends" for people who you want to see absolutely everything.
Applying these changes to my group of Friends made my news feed more relevant and interesting than Google+ because now only the stuff I really want to see shows there except there's way more of the good stuff I want to see from the people and organizations I'm most interested in because they are more active on Facebook.
These were the only thing that made Google+ stand out to me but Facebook has it too now so it's pointless.
You must be mistaken. If someone posts something public (which alot of my photogs do), and I respond to it, it doesn't matter if I have people set to acquaintance, or friends or whatever, they all see it. There are some photog groups I belong to and they are public so if I comment or post, all my friends see it. It's not a big deal, but Facebook deliberately makes things public by default. But there are some "members only" groups I have which are more contained.
Heck even when I post a photo and I tag someone, people I don't know and aren't anywhere on my friend list can see it and comment because of the person who I tagged (his friends can see a photo he was tagged in).
There is no privacy on Facebook. Even though I have everything set to friends and certain people as acquaintances (Facebook makes grouping friends in categories ridiculously difficult compared to G+ by the way), I assume its public info, since people I don't even know can see it.
It's just easier to do my photog stuff on G+ because none of my friends are on it and if I post publicly (which all my posts are on G+) they aren't bothered with it. I have over 1000 people in my photographer's circle, filled with quality posts that I can freely comment on without by friends feed getting hammered every 30 minutes.
