Google+ was a little slow to catch on especially in comparison to larger and more popular Facebook, but don’t count out Google+ yet and don’t forget that Google+ has been adding 10 million users PER MONTH – the fastest growth of any network yet. The infographic below shows a great comparison of the two networks, both which cater to different audiences. Which one is right for your business or profession?
With 170 million registered users Google+ is finding a niche among young, tech-savvy professionals who like to post and share content. One of the unique characteristics is that pictures are what Google+ users share the most.
On Facebook, the photo-sharing feature is ranked 4th behind “likes,” status updates, and comments. Facebook users spend more than seven hours per month on the social network, engaging with one another on a personal level.
This may be why Google+ is better for promoting content, while Facebook works well for traditional marketing aimed at a broad audience. The most popular brands on Facebook are consumer favorites like Coca-Cola, Disney, and Starbucks; while Google+ favors its own products, like Android and Chrome, as well as the tech blog Mashable.
Here’s the Infographic… hope this helps you decide where to focus your time!
