If nothing else, one should give Google 10 out of 10 for trying. I remember when Google try to force its way into being a big player in the Video market when YouTube fame started rising, by the time Google's version was ready, YouTube was way to far ahead for Google to catch up.
Well, in the social media, they try Orkut, it did not quite catch up, then Google+ followed. I think Facebook is way too far ahead for Google+ to even come near to challenging it, Google has not thrownin the towel yet but all the people that matters are sort of writing Google+ off.
The influential financial news publication Wall Street Journal or WSJ as its popularly know recently compared membership of Google+ with that of Facebook including hours users of each platform spend online. The finding was that on average, Google Plus users spend an average of 3 minutes a month on Google+ while Facebook users spend and average of 6 or 7 hours per month. Comparing the two figures, you cannot not agree with WSJ conclusion that Google plus as a social media is a ghost town.
What do you think of the two social media platform? do you use Facebook or G+? which one do you spend the most time on if you use both?
