Google+ celebrated its first birthday on June 27, 2012. Although I’ve previously given Google+ a little skepticism, there is a lot that this social network not only has coming, but does for many already.
Below are some of the (more or less) interesting facts on Google+’s first year in the world from MarketingVOX, Search Engine Watch, Edison Research and Computer World:
Through my research, I appreciated a thoughtful quote from photographer, Colby Brown, to commemorate his time on Google+ so far:
“G+ is a network of Interests, where people can connect not just because they are family or went to high school together, but because they have shared passions. Whether that be photography, astronomy, cooking, parenting, or even musical tastes. It is because of the creation of this “interest network” that we have the ability to feed off each others excitement, drive and passion…further instilling the virtues we love and occasionally igniting new ones through the connections we make.” (Source)
We’ll see what happens with Google+ throughout 2012. I’m rooting for a 2nd birthday with, perhaps, an entirely different connotation of the social network, but I guess we’ll just wait and see!
What are your thoughts on Google+? Are you an active user or did you sign up the first day last year and haven’t been back since? Let’s discuss below!
