Re: Google+ as a platform.
I thing Google is definitely *not* going to go into this business. They are way too concerned about privacy. Not to mention that their "firehose" is deliberately small because sharing happens by default among friends ("circles") only.
Google has some nice big data APIs, but they are carefully anonymous. Also, they have some interesting "small" APIs for building plugins and tools for people to use, but they are all carefully opt-in by users.
