Last year, many people dismissed Google's Google+ social network as a "virtual ghost town."That was then. This is now. According to GlobalWebIndex, Google+, with 343-million active users, has become the second largest social network globally. As Vic Gundotra, Google's senior VP of engineering, observed, "That is a lot of ghosts"

Of course, Facebook still has a massive lead, but Google+, with 343-million active users, is now the second most popular social network.

Google is doing great, One is Google Plus [Of Course]

I read the next web, I extract one point related to Google+ about how "Larry Page ignored Steve Jobs’s deathbed advice, and Google is doing great"

Another key to Google’s ability to remain unfocused and stay competitive is the evolution of Google+. Though many continue to dismiss Google’s social platform as an also-ran and a distraction from its core business, the increased back-end integration of Google’s products reveals much potential.
For example, despite the lack of a read/write API, Google+ users can create and comment on Google+ posts from multiple entry points, including Gmail, YouTube or the Play Store. What this shows is the company’s longer term vision for Google+ to exist as a single and agile data set that can represent itself in different products seamlessly.

Here is the full report.

Google starts prompting Google+ Pages to create their own Communities, teases Pause button feature [NNW]

The Next Web has been reported that Google is iterating Google+ on the regular, with the latest changes appearing this Wednesday (the day of the week where most of the social network’s updates seem to rollout). Although the company only launched Communities last month, and in preview too, Google is already prompting Pages on the service to create their own Communities.

On the popup screen, the message stated as:

Google+ Communities
  • Give your fans and customers a place to get together
  • Create an official community for your business or brand, linked directly from your Google+ page.
Bring fans closer together with community events, group video chat, and custom discussion categories.

Google Plus's Brilliant Method - Proof That Google Plus Will Prevail

I just read a post about how Google's and Google plus's hand the power nowadays and future.

Of course, while Google plus came out people always keep asking [until now]:
Does “Google’s version of Facebook,”?
Google plus has many feature similar to facebook except something so awesome like "Circle" are "good" and  “hangouts” are weird that lead most of tech. people have joint Google plus since they are really a new innovation of social network than facebook.

That's why Dave Llorens, the author of the original article has stated a very meaningful statement as
[...] Google Plus is really Google’s version of Google. [...]
[...] Google Plus is a way of entrenching Google’s dominance in that area, not a way of stealing Facebook users. [...]
[...] once Google Plus has every blogger, every small business, lots of gamers, lots of YouTubers, etc., actively using the product, they will continue to use all that new data to make even more of their products more awesome. [...]

Google plus users would be more active in this 2013 since now just with the new feature of community page recently bring more lives to it so beautiful already.
