The Rise Of Google +
You Gov announced the results of a Bloomberg / You Gov survey and here are some stunning statistics:
Already 13% of adult Internet users in the US have signed up for a Google+ account with another 9% planning to sign up in the next 12 months. Those signing up are also highly engaged:
- 45% of users report reading content once a day or more (only Facebook’s 62% is higher among social networks)
- 46% of Google+ users report creating content (e.g., creating updates; posting links) at least once a week. This is on par with Twitter (42%) – which focuses on easy content creation
