Greek yogurt is usually thicker (like sour cream) and I think it tastes richer and creamier. It also has A LOT more protein so it has a better nutritional bang for your buck (Activia is 4g, while Chobani has 18g).
I always buy chobani nonfat and use it as sour cream most of the time by eating it plain, or make a crema (squeeze of fresh lime juice and some cilantro) to top any "Tex Mex" flavored foods/chili or I replace sour cream with it in dips or other recipes. I use it to thicken soups and make them creamy by stirring in a spoonful in my bowl after heating.
I'm not a big yogurt fan, but my three year old daughter does like to eat it unsweetened with some berries thrown in, or sometimes with some honey mixed in.
