Ouch.

A quote from that site I refuse to link to:

Visitors using personal computers spent an average of about three minutes a month on Google+ between last September and January, versus six to seven hours on Facebook each month over the same period, according to comScore, which didn’t have data on mobile usage.

3 minutes versus seven hours. I mean, 3 minutes!

The sad thing is: I bet when mobile usage is counted, the gap is actually worse.

We keep hearing over and over how Google+ is on the up-and-up — from Google. 10 million sign-ups here. A billion more there. So many fucking sign-ups.

The reality of the situation sure seems to be the opposite. The only people I know that use Google+ regularly are people who work at Google (and Robert Scoble). 

It’s just not working. For fundamental reasons. Millions more in TV ad spend won’t fix that.

  11. tgoss said: G+ is trying to be “better” than FB, a strategy that has rarely worked. You win by being different, not better. With the exception of circles, everything about G+ is identical to FB. GOOG should stick with Self Driving cars; at least THAT’s cool!

    I really don’t know anyone who uses it regularly. Everyone just wanted in initially because it was new.

    It’s the opposite for me, I spend 3 minutes on Facebook and hours on Google+ each day. I prefer Google+ to EVERYTHING.
