Is G+ the hottest social environment out there or it’s just another tumbleweed town? Umpf gets to the bottom of this mystery with a little research and brings us the results with an infographic. The Google+, Ghost Town? infographic compares them to other key social networks in sharing and activity.
There’s been many articles written about how good, bad and indifferent Google+ is. But our favourite debate is the ongoing It’s Really Popular Vs It’s A Ghost Town one.
So what’s the truth? Our findings and infographic (see below) appear to suggest the latter: despite its large number of accounts, G+ is bottom of the list of social network users’ favoured channels.
Google, of course, claims it is fast-growing and really popular. Why wouldn’t they? And, of course, there is research to support that argument. But does this chart, left, for example, which shows the rise in G+ unique visitors, tell the whole truth?
So, we decided to do our own research. It is by no means exhaustive and is only meant as a snapshot view, so judge for yourself.
What about you? Do you guys have a presence on G+? Are you active?
