Google+ Rising Fast with 20 Million Unique Visitors
In a span of three weeks, Google+ garnered zero to 20 million site visitors.
According to web tracker ComScore, out of these 20 millions clicks, five million came from the U.S. But people should not get confused with the terms ‘visitors’ and ‘members’. There no assurance that these visitors are Google+ members. These visits account only for those that came from home and office desktops.
Despite all these, ComScore mentioned that 20 million figure is still an astonishing feat to achieve for a short period of time.
But with the question on whether Google+ could sustain this value, ComScore have doubts:
“As we’ve seen in the social networking market before, success often hinges on a strong network effect, which says that the more people in the network the more useful it becomes to others and the more incentive there is to participate. Early interest in Google+ is certainly important, but it will also need to attract regular participation among users to cultivate such an effect. In the past week, we have seen the number of average usage days via home and work computers increase by more than 30%, an early indication that the network effect just might be beginning taking hold.”View Article Source »
