Can Facebook And Google+ Coexist?

Google could provide social users in all demographics an untapped wealth of information that is literally right under our feet.
1) Leverage Google Street View assets by shooting memorial parks; head stone, crypts, markers and so on. ( Many parks have client software so this could be used as well for data integration.
2) Leverage Google Goggles to read the text on same and auto tag.
3) Make this new app. searchable; any ONLY accessible over Google Plus.
4) Let people tag these images as well.
5) Give is a cool name like 'Google Generations'.
6) Let people use this to make connections like Ancestery.com ( but better ).
7) Now Google can have ( Google Ancestor Circles ). Users can use this feature to do some quasi - genealogy.
8) On an off-note or more playful use... maybe allow users to create a virtual head stone with their name and epitaph over top any image they want (Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Route 66...) Maybe even create a message linked to this that does not reveal itself until a future date set by the user; e.g.- www.timekapsule.com.

I think Facebook and Twitter co-exist because they are different types of social interaction and because Facebook is anchored in more of a PC ecosystem while Twitter is much more suited to mobile.

People should be smart enough to already know that this is the INTERNET, nothing is private, and nothing will ever be.
If I do not want anybody to know about my fantasies, I'll not post them on my Google+ with the person I'd want to it with...
Be smart, cause you never know who's watching you.

This is a big negative for people who use Facebook to stay in touch with friends.
Google+ is has better features related to sharing stuff. Facebook can clone these features and keep its social graph.
So far, I'm not convinced on using Google+ full time, except the fact that it is trendy.
