I have been avoiding social networks for a bit lately. Facebook didn't provide any meaningful content, and Google+ didn't have my friends or family actively posting. A friend of mine invited me to Diaspora. I have invited a few friends and family members as I did with G+. Facebook has an established presence and as such it is hard to contend with.
