Google Plus and Facebook Compete on Gaming Platform
According to the Facebook marketing experts, war between Facebook and Google plus will be really healthy for the future of social media marketing. And the rivalry between Facebook and Google plus is the hot and most happening news in the digital marketing world these days. Facebook really grew up when some of the other social media websites failed. Facebook is ranked 2 on Alexa ranking just behind Google.com. This is really a big feat for Facebook because; Google got Alexa ranking 1 because of all it’s different services such as Gmail, Google maps, search engine etc. So we can judge how big Facebook.com is.
Gaming applications and various interesting games have been one of the strongest points in making Facebook so popular. Social networking gaming developers Zynga got the most benefit from Facebook gaming and it now worth 20 billion dollars. Social gaming developer Zynga alone got 44 million active users daily from Facebook.
Last year in September Facebook added some limitations and restrictions on its gaming platform, annoying many of its users.
Now Google Plus has launched gaming platform for its growing number of fans. Now Google plus users don’t have to go anywhere else for more entertainment. Some of the big social networking game developers such as Zynga and Popcap have launched some very interesting and popular games for Google Plus users. This will really make life for Facebook team a bit difficult.
Google plus is giving some very important features which were not there with Facebook games, and that really annoyed many of the Facebook users. Facebook users were not comfortable with unwanted updates about how your friends are performing on these games and some unwanted invitations to join your friends in various games. Facebook switched these features off last year.
Google Plus has kept its users away from such unwanted notifications and messages. You can play games by just pressing the games button at the top of your Google plus feed. Facebook people are saying that, they are not concerned with the launch of Google plus games, but their action speaks something else. Facebook is planning to switch on the feature in which users can post games invitation in feed. But there will be a privacy setting for users to avoid this.
So, gaming is becoming a crucial part of the competition between Facebook and Google plus and it may be the decisive feature when it comes to choose the number one Social networking website of all times.
