Google+ content vs. Facebook and Twitter
Here are two interesting pieces of news regarding Google+ in the past week. First, Google+ attracted more than 25 million users in less than a month, which outpaced both Facebook and Twitter and ranks it as the fastest website to reach that milestone. Second, Google+’s (how strange does that look?) growth is slowing down since total visits fell.
That tells me that lots of folks are joining the bandwagon, particularly since it’s invitation only, but once they get on, they’re not sure what to do. Personally, I realized today that besides adding people to my circles, I haven’t posted anything in a week. My issue is that my personal friends are still on Facebook, so that’s where I go to stay connected. I checked my friend circle today and basically only two people have been posting regularly to Google+. My full stream of content on Google+ is all from professionals discussing social media topics. Since I follow most of those people on Twitter, I’m not motivated to check Google+ just to see similar content.
A couple weeks ago, I posted on Google+ asking everyone how they were deciding what content to post there vs. Facebook vs. Twitter. Another friend echoed a desire to get that insight, but so far, no one has responded and I haven’t found any posts or articles that cover content trends.
Would love to hear what your experience has been with Google+ and what content trends you’re noticing.
