Google+ now number 2 social network after Facebook!
Global Web Index released a report showing a change in the usage from “localized” social platforms to global social networks like Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. In terms of shares and internet use growth, the analysis shows about 343 million active users of Google+, and a little under 300 million active users for Twitter and YouTube. Based on the markets surveyed and estimates of other markets not included in their report, GWI believes that Facebook’s claims of 1 billion users is more or less on target.
As is seen from the report however, the real winner in all this is Google+ which had the strongest growth at 40% across 31 monitored markets. But then…, there’s never been a a question of “if” Google+ would flourish. Where Google is involved, things get done!
