The Rise Of Google +

August 18, 2011

The Rise of Google PlusA lot of talking takes place on the web these day whether Google + is going to become the second social network giant next to Facebook or not.

In my opinion Google+ has a very good chance to make it this time after being rather unsuccessful with Google Wave and Google Buzz.

You Gov announced the results of a Bloomberg / You Gov survey and here are some stunning statistics:

Google+

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

Jeff Bullas has been blogging about this subject recently. Read his blog posts.
