Ever since Google launched its own social network, Google+, many have asked whether or not it will be able to compete with the social media giant, Facebook. In fact, some even tried to gauge whether or not Google+ can effectively compete with Twitter. However, so far, the growth of Google+ has been rather slow.
Naturally, many have been quick to presume that Google+ has failed and that it is going down. While that remains the opinion of a vast majority, many other believe that things are only starting for the social network and its too young to judge it for its success or failure.
According to an infographic by Browser Media, the average time spent by a person in a month, on Facebook is 450 minutes. On Twitter, it is 114 minutes and on Pinterest it stands at 97.8 minutes. However, when it comes to Google+, it is a mere 3.3 minutes!
However, when it comes to traffic per month, Google+ at least beats Pinterest. Again, this does not mean it is any more successful than Pinterest since Pinterest is better able to engage the users whereas Google+ isn’t. So while it may still be early to opine as to whether or not Google+ is a failure, the statistics for the social network don’t sound very promising.
