Google Plus 2nd Most Popular Social Network

  • The social networking world has changed since it first emerged. Facebook has grown to be the most powerful in the market, and now Google’s relative newcomer Google+ is coming up in second place for control over the social networking market. The UK market research company, Trendstream, updated its Global Web Index for social networking this week, which showed that Google has moved into 2nd place, with Google’s YouTube taking 3rd and Twitter at 4th place. The new data shows that Facebook’s has total 694 million active users, while Google+ in second place with 343 million. It is a pretty big jump as Google+ has only been around in the social market since summer 2011.
