SOCIALTRENDS2014 Data, Ice Buckets and A Look At the Future
FOR ME PERSONALLY, Google+ is like the weird
smelly kid you don’t want sitting at your lunch table.
He’s there, and technically you are peers, but you
irrationally don’t like him. I crack jokes about it all
the time, saying that its B-team at best and is the
Beta Max of social networks. However, looking at the
numbers, I’m wrong. Very, very wrong. According to
Google, the network as 300 million users a month.
That’s nothing to sneeze at. Going into next year, it
may be a good idea to start putting Google+ strategy
into your pitch decks if they aren’t there already. As
Google becomes more and more one stop shopping, it
may start to take some attention real estate away from
Facebook and Twitter. And putting down my haterade
for a second, pictures really do look awesome on it.
