As people are getting busy day day by day and the life is getting harder and harder gradually, it’s really hard to communicate or co-ordinate with people in person. Thanks to internet and advanced technologies that has made our communication with one another easy. Normally people communicate online using different social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Skype, Google+ etc. Among those social networking sites, Google And Facebook dominate the social space.
At present if people are asked which one is the best search engine, the answer will be Google. Which one is the best social networking site? I hope, every people will say by roaring- Facebook. Logging in through Facebook, Twitter, Google, Skype may be the easiest way to connect to people online. Facebook is so popular that, in one of my previous articles, I wrote about half of the underage children are addicted using Facebook in US and UK.
However, according to Janrain study, among the users of social networking sites, Facebook has been accounted for 45% of social logins. After that, Google, Yahoo, Twitter, Windows, and a number of other sites have been accounted for 31%, 9%, 9%, 3%, 3% of social logins respectively.
Janrain found that Facebook’s popularity for social login on eCommerce websites went a little bit down from 49% to 43% in the last two quarters. Google’s overall preference has increased 2% since Q4 2011. Besides these, Twitter is in strong position for mobile logins.
The positions of Twitter, LinkedIn, Myspace and Yahoo are 2, 3, 4 and 5 respectively, after Facebook.
Will Facebook and Google be able to hold their dominating positions in future? Will Facebook and Google be able to retain their same popularity? Well, I don’t have a prediction to make. If you have one, don’t hesitate to share it with us.
