In the past, Google+ has been termed as disappointment by many tech analysts. This is precisely because the social network from Google failed to gain a lot of traction after the initial post-launch boost. However, a lot of indicators now hint that the fortunes of Google+ may be changing. At least, the social network is growing at a fairly good rate.
The latest statistics from ComScore reveal the total number of unique visitors that have visited Google+ over the course of last nine months. According to these stats, the total number of unique visitors to Google+ have increased by a significant 66 percent! In June 2012, this number was up from 15.2 million to 27.7 million!
This growth in Google+ popularity is even more pronounced when we see numbers from U.S. The total number of unique visitors from US to Google+ has increased by a whopping 82 percent!
These figures seem to affirm Google’s claims that it now has 250 million accounts on Google+ with nearly 150 million monthly users and 75 million daily users.
This definitely shows that Google+ is far from being a failure and is finally finding a fairly handsome number of users. Interestingly, from November last year to June this year, the overall unique visitors on Facebook from US alone were on a decline. The stats went down from 166 million to 159.8 million.
Does this mean that Google+ is attracting all these users who are probably disgruntled over Facebook’s privacy issues? We can’t be sure but it is very possible.
