Google + Plus v Facebook
Is Google Plus, sometimes written as g+, a serious challenge to Facebook’s Supremacy as a Social Network?
When Google Plus first arrived on the Social Network scene people were calling it the “Facebook Killer.” I never considered that Google would trounce Facebook. It is not a “Hare & Tortoise” race. Actually, Google is not by any means a Tortoise.
Were this competition a Social Network 1000 mile auto race, I would say that Facebook had a 500 mile head start. If it were a recruiting race, I would say that Facebook may have had a 500,000,000 member head start on Google. There is no way to stop the growth short of closing the gates or having some entry requirements. Somehow, I don’t think that will happen.
Google had a model when they started g+. They were not re-inventing the wheel but trying to build a better mouse trap. I guess that statement is not entirely logical but you get my drift.
Google set about improving the Facebook model. I don’t believe that anything about g+ was an accident. The techies at Google must have studied Facebook with the idea of improving it. They succeeded.
There are three aspects to Google Plus that I really like over Facebook:
This brief blog post keeps expanding, but I would be remiss if I did not mention Facebook’s Fanpages for businesses. At this time Google Plus has no equivalent but they will. Google is the number one search engine in the world, and You Tube is number two, When Google does come out with a Fanpage equivalent, “Watch Out Facebook.”
I would like to end by giving you some numbers. Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook is in 610,692 Circles and Larry Page, co-founder of Google, is in 752,513. Snoop Dog is in 646,350 circles.
