Circling Up Google+ Criticism

28 Feb

Amir Efrati describes Google+ as a “virtual ghost town” in a Wall Street Journal article posted Wednesday.

Between September and January, users spent an average of just three minutes on the search engine giant’s social networking site while using computers. That’s compared to between six or seven hours per month on Facebook, the article stated.

A poll accompanying the article asks users whether they are on Google+. Out of 290 votes around noon, 63.1 percent said no.

According to EMarketer Inc. via Bloomberg, Google+ will at least surpass Facebook in display advertising in 2013. It is projected to boast almost a one-fifth share.

Google+’s growth problem is that it’s an enhancer to other Google’s products, Jeff Bercovici wrote for Forbes. Charles Cooper, however, argues on CNet that it will be just fine.
