On the warpath

It isn't breaking news that all the world is...no, not the stage but the social net. We're cloaked in them — Twitter, MySpace, LiveJournal, Pinterest, Badoo etc. But Facebook and Google+ still leave the most popular of them. And it is actually the point of my interest.

Less than 2 years of working Google+ social network has about 100 million users a month. And it's only active users. If the things go on with the same speed there will be a great gap between FB and G+.

Actually, G+ has found the weakest point of the Facebook — mobile phones. FB is still defenseless against them as it doesn't have its own OS. Unlike Google's Android.

Facebook now is a very popular net but it should be more mobile-focused. Google+ is a company that has both becoming more popular net and a VERY popular mobile OS.

And what do you choose?

Frankly speaking, I prefer live communication, but for the cases, when it is not possible I would probably choose Google+. It seems more intuitive.

Let us look at the real social statistics in the Web. Let's open three random articles on CNet, Guardian, and GameInformer and look at the Likes and +1's statistics (as of 22:43 MDT, 10.03.12):
1. CNet.
Likes: 176.
+1's: 10.
2. The Guardian.
Likes: 136.
+1's: 2.
3. GameInformer.
Likes: 66.
+1's: 0.
Now, take a close look at these figures. Then at your post. Then at these figures. Then at your post. Any ideas?

Actually the post is about the FUTURE of G+ and Facebook and about possible perspectives of G+ development. There is nothing about the present statistics. You can re-read the post and read also the article following the link I gave.

What I mean was actually that if you talk about 100 million active users, we should have figures only nine times smaller than thos on Facebook. It means essentially that at the same activity rate we would've had about 20 +1's for teh first article, 15 +1's for the second article and 7 +1's for the third article. It becomes obvious that the so-called active Google+ users are at least twice less active as the folks on Facebook, which doesn't make that much sense to my mind.
Moreover, there can be no gap between FB and G+, since pretty much everybody has an account on Facebook, so the company just has nowhere to grow in user numbers. If G+ ever reaches these values, it will slow down just the same way F+ did it this year.
P.S. 'Less than 2 years of working Google+ social network has about 100 million users a month. And it's only active users. If the things go on with the same speed there will be a great gap between FB and G+.' So much for 'There is nothing about the present statistics.'

Now it's your personal meaning and I accept it. There is no need to stick my nose into figures because the main point of my post was the mobile future of G+. And the sentence where I used only 2 figures just illustrates the present situation of the G+ and isn't of great importance as the advantage of mobile net is.
