So many people say Google Plus needs saving and that Google’s latest purchase of Polar could possibly help them rise up in rank as a social media network.
So, what actually needs fixing within Google Plus?
A Google Plus post shared by Brian Tait (Shown Below) linking off to Digital Marketing Rambling (DMR), this site talks about Google’s latest purchase of Polar and can it save Google Plus! This in our eyes seems a little crazy, everyone is obviously allowed to their opinion and we respect that.
Hope they respect our opinion, we have to agree with Brian Tait who say’s he is not sure Google Plus needs saving and to be frank the content looks a lot cleaner than Facebook.
Why Google Plus doesn’t need saving!
Point 1: There has been no Google Plus update for a while now, and when they do release new updates they are rather scarce. The answer to point 1 is simple, why does Google plus need an update when everything seems to working fine the way it is.
Point 2: We do not see ads all over the place on G Plus, non-relevant links are not taking over the whole page – In a nutshell Google Plus has one of the cleanest looks for a social media network.
Point 3: Google Plus offers great engagement with adults and business-like minds, no ha ha’s or lols here, and with 45,795 followers on my personal Google Plus profile I say it has a good solid base of users. Take Guy Kawasaki for example, he has a staggering 6,648,647 followers, Larry Page has 8,590,387, Lady Gaga has 8,999,136, you can trust us when we say there are plenty of G Plus users.
Point 4: look at the number of registered Google Plus users, the growth is very good indeed and getting stronger and larger. In 2012 Q4 there were 223 million active users out of 435 million registered users, and in 2013 Q4 there were 1.15-billion registered users with 359 users being active. We are waiting on this years Q4 2013 to 2014 stats, but the numbers say Google Plus is growing so why does it need saving.
Point 5: The average time spent on Google Plus was around 3.30 minutes in 2012 Q4 and same quarter in 2013 it went up to 6.47 minutes.
How can people say Google Plus is struggling! DMR actually said and quote “Facebook being something of a model example” Does this mean Google plus should put ads everywhere, release updates like they are going out of fashion or how about status messages about how bad someone’s day was. For us we see nothing but positives on a whole with no bad Google Plus posts like “I forgot to get milk I’m so Pi***d Off – This is just an example.
Do you believe Google Plus is struggling?
