    That’s interesting though hardly believable. I mean, who’s on Google+ anyway? Google+ is a promising social networking site but when pitted against others, I think they will need a few years more of exposure before they top the charts.

    G+ might have become the second largest social network but it is being used by mainly professional and webmasters,, common people sill going with facebook and the graph clearly indicates difference between the two..

    It is good to see that Google plus is on fire! That’s interesting. I completely agree that Facebook is great channel for bringing free website traffic. That is, if you’re doing them correctly! Twitter and Google plus is beneficial if we belong to some reputed organizations or brand. Thanks for sharing this informative post!
