Is Google+ Really More Popular Than Twitter? The Data Seems To Say So, But… [STUDY]

For many years now, two things have been constants in the world of social media. One, women are more active users of social networking sites and platforms than men. And two, Facebook and Twitter are the two most popular social channels – always in that order – for both sexes.

Heck, I’ve said it myself. It is a ghost town. Google might claim 170 million users, but because anyone with a Google account – you know, Gmail, YouTube and so on – is effectively bolted on to Google+ automatically, it’s debatable how many of those folks are truly active. And because Google isn’t exactly forthcoming with key data, like actual usage statistics, or session length, it all feels a little duplicitous. Sneaky, even.

So what do we know? Back in February, independent data suggested that users spent just 3.3 minutes on Google+ in January, compared to 7.5 hours for Facebook. Now, a new study has revealed just how ineffective Google+ is as a social sharing platform, certainly compared to Twitter.
