They can add a Google+ presence without deleting their Facebook one.
Meikal's post shows how important Facebook is to many people, Nafex members

You can get notification of each and every post made to G+ circles you are
added to. They include header info and some tect and graphics and certainly
enough header info to do an effective search. Points out the need to create
sensible subject lines. You can easily do a Google+ or Gmail search to find
collections of posts on particular topics, i.. some obscure posts you or
someone else made six years ago. This can be done easily and accurately.
Also using GMail for your G+ feed allows you to add Thunderbird or Claws or
Opera as a secondary email reader on your own computer receiving full IMAP
feed from your GMail account.
Sorting, searching and export can be done very elaborately with Thunderbird
enabling you to organize posts in specific discussion threads. If these are
G+ Circle post notifications then
you can create index and pointer for valued posts.
