Both. Facebook allows you to target more specific audience, but in complex they will bring you more use.

I really think that depends on what you are trying to accomplish: what your product or service is, what kind of customers you're looking for, etc.
But that being said, I think Facebook is, all other things being equal, far superior to Google+ in most ways. The only way that Google+ is superior to facebook, in my opinion, is its ownership by google and integration into other google products/services. (However, rumours continue that google+ may one day perish: http://mashable.com/2015/08/02/googl.../#SZXPlO0kRPqU so that would be another reason to pick facebook.)

Facebook all the way! You setup an offer (Lot's of free tools that can help you create a professional landing page), start a campaign for around $30 bucks and off you go.

The only advice I will give here is test images and titles out on your ads before running them on full force.

Catchy images back a big difference.

Google Plus is LAME and only good if you are into some super techy stuff. Otherwise, avoid it. Plus it's more of a long term thing. FB all the way.

Facebook is the best social media to get the traffic in a short spam of time because now a days all are mostly visiting the Facebook and Twitter rather than other social media websites. So, I prefer Facebook to get the more traffic for the small business.

But Google + is useful for creating your official web pages. Yes, it`s not convenient but it shows in SERP when inserting the name of your company. Did you think about this? It rises the trust for your website..

Google+ is great for your SEO, it affects more than all the Facebook activities. But Facebook is definitely better when you want to engage people from your niche... I think it's good to have both of them.

If you ask me I think that it depends on your niche but in general Facebook is the better platform. It has a much better market share than G+ worldwide. (in Romania G+ is practically non existent).
If we talk about personal use I think that Facebook crushes G+.
Don`t get me wrong, I`m not a Facebook groupie but Zuckerberg knows his stuff.

For me it depends. I guess both are helpful especially when you want to promote something. Google plus is also good for SEO marketing and Facebook is one the best platforms for me and can be use for personal socializing.
