Google+ Monthly Active User Number is Not 300 Million

Google is said to be mulling with graphical Google+ ads and notifications click counts for its monthly active Google+ user number, reported 300 million. The number of clicks on its red round icon is a whole different ball game though.

Google+ Monthly Active User Number is Not 300 Million

Ever since it got off the ground, Google+ has been a hard nut to crack. Although numbers and figures are released by Google time after time, they don’t lend an inside peek into what is actually happening on Google+. There are approximately 300 million users of Google+. "Google+ head Vic Gundotra on Tuesday said 300 million people were “active in the Google+ stream” every month, up from 190 million in May," according to Amir Efrati report on Jessica Lessin blog. But this is not in real. All that the members of the user base have to do is double click the small red bell shaped icon or share icon and they are good to go. Via this instrument, Google notes down its user metrics. But this Google+ stream is more "broadly defined."

 Rivals Facebook and Twitter are way ahead in this game. But the difference was that they used advertising while Google did not. Facebook and Twitter furthermore employ “Like” and “tweet” buttons in their quest to get the raw data about those who frequent their respective sites.

There are a few problems with Google+. The biggest one is such that it cannot be gauged by the experts sitting at the Google headquarters. This is regarding whether those who click on the small red balloon actually share or utilize their stuff on Google+. 

This is a mystery wrapped in an enigma alright. It leaves the expertise in somewhat of a lull. After all, a graphical ads program seems ideal for Google. It looks that Google is mulling with the number of monthly active users figure for Google+ graphical ads, and notification count clicks. For all we know, there may be lots of activity going on that we are unaware of. Or conversely, there may be nothing behind the silence at Google+. This is a focal point for Google right now and one it has to resolve in the nick of time.

Twitter can be particularly difficult for me, as I must keep the list of who I follow rather small, or else I cannot keep up. Luckily, the blue bir ...
