It’s beginning to seem like anything that Google touches becomes Internet gold. Google+ has now become the 2nd most popular Social Media Network in terms of share of users. While Google+ currently ranks 2nd at 25%, it has now surpassed Twitter and YouTube, who both came in tied in 3rd at 21%. Google still has a ways to go before catching up to the Social Media giant known as Facebook, with a stunning 51% of internet users are actively on Facebook.
While Google+ remains a long ways away from catching Facebook, they are trending in the right direction. With over 343 million active users on Google+, it can no longer be ignored, especially as a business owner. Most people that are unfamiliar with the Internet tend to only look at Facebook and Twitter as a means to grow their company through Social Media. With the growing number of users, as well as the direct connection with Google, Google+ is a must for business owners who are looking to increase search results and to help drive more traffic to their website. Here are some tips on how to optimize your Google+ page. If your Google+ page is filled with relevant posts, videos and photos, it could start showing up in search results by potential customers.
While Google+ and Facebook came away the winners from this new data, many local social networks, that only serve certain countries, took big hits. South Korea’s Social Media network, Me2Day, and Germany’s StudioViz saw their growth, or lack thereof, take a huge hit. An explanation as to why Google+, Twitter and Facebook continue to do well globally and continue to grow could be because of the growing mobile markets. These Social Media powerhouses have developed the best mobile apps that work on Androids and iOS devices with ease. In today’s world, everyone is on the go. The quicker and easier you make your product, the more successful it will be.
