The Rise And Rise Of Google Plus
Google+ was launched on June 28 ,2011 in a field testing phase before it opened it to public later that year on Sept 20. There was insane demand to get G+ invite and even the invite went on sale on eBay and amazon. Google+ came with lots of features including hangouts, sparks[which is now known as what's hot] and circles. Along with the G+ launch they also launched mobile apps for android ad ios . G+ is the fastest social network to reach 50m user base.Is google+ a growing threat to the 800m user base of facebook?
Google+ has more than 50m user base and its till in doubt that whether users are visiting or bouncing back to their old social network. So i have decided to have a quick and short survey among 50 G+ user from 20 different countries . I have asked 4 questions among the users and have analyzed their statements and made data with that.
"For me Google+ is beyond the conventional social networking engine, it is a lot more intelligent than the others. It has really become a knowledge engine, and I spent a great deal of time reading posts, opening additional content, and sharing more than I have ever done before. Google+ Irie Man...Blessings and 1Love from Jamaica- Jason Thomas"
I had a great time collecting opinions and comments from the users and found that on average each users spend more than 2 hr/day on Google+ and people like Matty john , Suzy Abraham and Christy Mathew finds more than 5 hrs a day on Google+ reading posts, commenting and sharing. When asked about how many social networks the users are into , i found that off the 50 users 20 prefers only to use G+ and 20 are using other platforms like twitter, tumblr, Facebook, foursquare and linked In. And rest 10 user are getting bored of their social networks and want to settle down in G+ .Continued on the next page
