    Not incredibly surprising. There’s less user interaction, and way more people spam posts with Hashtags, so things get cluttered incredibly fast.

    Unless you have a stable brand or have built a following over time, I can’t imagine there’s going to be that much movement if any with G+.

    I have a strong urge to share this article on my G+

    How much of this data is not captured because the referral came from Google SERPs although the original message was posted on Google +? I click on a lot of results that are status updates in a SERP because I’m logged in to G+. Curious to know if that data was taken into consideration in this study.

    Go for it. But it won’t go anywhere. The articles that do well on G+ are ones that praise G+. :-)

    Major flaw: this will not include click-throughs from Google search that are attributable to a +1.

    Interesting stats. But nothing strange. I use G+ only for the sake of authorship, and that based more on a gut feeling that in time, G+ authorship will gain more weight. G+ is not the first social attempt Google made, and very few of us remember those failed attempts. I would not be surprised if Google rolls out other updates after Hummingbird that leverage G+ activity and authorship. But… time will tell.

    Trust Google,

    they dont even name their social media yet….they are calling it “Google”+ you

    in the future they remove the + brand

    and simply say “share on Google”

    I am active on G+ and its charm is exactly that it is not used by many. None of my friends are active on G+. But its a great place to make new friends across the globe, which makes it a very niche network.

    In my entire family, I am the only one who wants to connect with random people. Rest all are happy to connect with their known friends and relatives, for which FB is good enough

    sharing is instantaneous & it has lot to do with “top of mind” recollection & G+ is probabaly at the bottom now :P

    Actually, I came here from a G+ share (oddly enough) and shared it myself across all of my accounts :)

    But I’m an uber geek and don’t conform to any norms
