    Agree that G plus is gaining momentum. For me is the amount of individuals that bring in together a community. I think I learned so much since joining and learned much about great people and their contributions. Way better than hearing about gossip. :)

    Dear Greg,
    thank you very much for your article. Its very popular at the moment to publish infographics about the facebook-google+ competition. I think this is a result coming from the big witsh of Google+ Users to get same power like Facebook Users have. Maybe the statistic is right in a global way or in the USA. But in countries like Europe – or in my country Austria and Germany, Google+ is still a white map. This has lot of advantage of course. Now is the time of founding brands in Google+ and the time of creating a real great audience. Its not a mass-product yet. But sometimes is frustrating that a cat/dog picture gets more plusses than an article of an experienced person of a certain industry. This will change when Google+ gets more popular. Many regards, Elke Greim, Germany

    Nice presentation of data, Greg.

    I agree with you, with a lot of platforms that marketers could choose from, they should analyze and choose the best for their brands. Your article shows that Google+ is gaining its popularity. Marketers should think of trying this one out, this might be an effective platform.

    Thank you for sharing this report.

    I found and “kingged” the post on Kingged.com.

    I don’t think counting every log-in with Google + is valid. You have to use it to use any of Google services. That skews the numbers a bit don’t you think ;)

    How many of those people logging in actually use Google +?

    From what I’ve seen very few average people us it and the ones who do are in the Web industry so that is hardly a microcosm of the web.

    Google + will never be the social network Facebook is no matter how hard they want to try and make it so.

    Whatever the figure differences of G+ and FB, Facebook has evolved, improved, grew into what it is today, so Facebook popularity and usage will continue.

    Actually Global Web Index already tracked that earlier this year. They only counted users who commented, shared, or +1′d on G+ and the number of monthly active users was higher than Twitter. Those are independent numbers tracking exactly what you said is missing. So although you don’t believe G+’s growth is valid, that doesn’t make you right.
