Does Google+ Pose A Serious Threat To Facebook?

Posted on December 26, 2011 by


Facebook users watch out! Well not really, since mostGoogle+ users are also Facebook users. BUT Google+ does seem to be growing in popularity.  comSore, which is one of the bestthird-party measurement firms for web traffic has released data theycalculated based on the total number of unique visitors. Unique visitors mean the total number of visits made by each IPaddress.  In plain terms, if youvisit Google+ 20 times from the same computer and same internet connection, youwill still only receive 1 unique view.

According to comScore, Google+ grew from 65 millionunique visitors in October to almost 67 million in November.  However, this statistic is based only on thevisits to plus.google.com, and not any of the side websites or Google+ featureinjections that Google has put on its other properties over the last month.

This is good news for Google+.  However, compared to Facebook, Twitter, orLinkedin, there’s still a lot of catching up to do.

Google has even begun TV advertising for Google+ with a quite adorable commercial, Google+: Circles Love Story

I'm sort of an unconventional technologist. I graduated Binghamton University with an Environmental Science Degree, concentrating in Economics. I’ve always read about and discovered new technology and I’m excited about the opportunity to share my experiences with you. Through TheTechUpload, I can continue to discover new technology and share my love of technology to those with similar interests. With my knowledge and childlike curiosity of electronics and the environment, I’ll be able to provide a unique perspective on technology’s impact on our digital world. Technology drives our society today, and from my point of view, there's always something better or something to improve upon.
