Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) February 05, 2013
On February 5th, 2013, following news that Google+ has swept the second place position for most active social media site, online marketing company fishbat offers analysis of the social media giant.
According to PC World, “Trendstream’s Global Web Index for the final quarter of 2012 estimates that Facebook had some 693 million active users, seconded by Google+ with 343 million active users. The firm also tracked YouTube as a social network, which came in at number three in its ranks, followed by Twitter at 288 million active users.”
However, the article reports that Google+ is still behind Facebook, which is currently being used by more than 51 percent of the entire world’s online population.
While some may suggest that not many people contribute to Google+, the Consulting Director of GlobalWebIndex, Brett Petersen, states, “I think that Google+ is working particularly hard to address this, and Google+ contribution is becoming increasingly important as Google ties search, along with all of their other services, together with Google+ being the glue that binds them all.”
“Google+ is another tool in the toolbox,” comments fishbat COO Scott Darrohn. “Facebook and Google+ both have attributes that set them apart but at the end of the day, many social media users will choose Facebook.”
Darrohn continues, “Does this mean that using Google+ is a waste? Absolutely not. It comes down to preference. Facebook offers a unique service that has users joining at an exponential rate and that is why Facebook is number one. However this is still a huge achievement for Google+ and we congratulate the social media platform for their success.”
