After Amir Efrati’s February article in the Wall Street Journal revealed that, after sign up, Google+ users aren’t really doing anything much with the platform, a pretty stunning info-graphic really jumped out at readers – it was a diagram that showed the average minutes-per-user for all social networks in January 2012. Table A shows the breakdown, based on ComScore’s data, which does not include mobile usage.
Average Minutes of Use
Google’s VP of Engineering Vic Gundrota (effectively the “CEO of Google+”), responded by saying, “Not only is Google Plus not a ghost town, we have never seen anything grow this fast. Ever.”
And so the New York Times jumped into the fray, digging deeper into Gundrota’s metrics. Google shared a stat stating that 50 million of the people who created a Google+ account actively use their Google+ enhanced products daily, and that over 100 million people have signed up for the product.
The problem with Google’s stats is that they don’t indicate that “enhanced products” includes Google.com and YouTube, the #1 and #3 sites on the Internet. (#2, unsurprisingly, is Facebook).
