Google Plus Is ‘a Virtual Ghost Town’

Amir Efrati, reporting for the WSJ:

It turns out Google+ is a virtual ghost town compared with the site of rival Facebook Inc., which is preparing for a massive initial public offering. New data from research firm comScore Inc. shows that Google+ users are signing up — but then not doing much there.

Visitors using personal computers spent an average of about three minutes a month on Google+ between 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.


MG Siegler adds: “The only people I know that use Google+ regularly are people who work at Google (and Robert Scoble).”
