If we look at mere traffic alone, Google Plus doesn’t appear to be doing a bad a job, but dig a little deeper and Google Plus needs to play some serious catch up. If Google Plus continues to perform poorly on key metrics, this could spell doom and gloom for this much watched social network.
Average time users spend on Google Plus is very low relative to the social media super powerhouses, which translates to 0.5% of the time spent on Facebook and 3% of the time spent on Twitter.
What’s surprising is that a wopping 30% of users make only one post on G+. Why does this occur? Perhaps this relates to the statistic that the average amount of reshares or replies and +1s the average post on G+ receives is less than one. Are they hearing crickets? Does this infographic leave out key data? Are we merely seeing the start of what will become a social media giant? You tell me. What has been your experience using Google Plus?
