In a recent report from the Global Web Index, figures were published showing that Google + has become the world’s second most popular social media platform. The report states that Google + now has 343 million active users, still far from Facebook’s 693 million, but more than that of Twitter's 288 million. These stats aren’t surprising considering public reaction to seemingly endless Facebook updates and changes over the past few years, however surely Google + is far from reaching its full potential. Does it have the potential to knock Facebook off its perch as king of the social media platforms though? One thing is pretty certain, sooner or later SOMEONE will take up position number one, it might be Google +, but it’s too early to say.
