Google a suscité la polémique en juillet en suspendant les comptes des utilisateurs n’utilisant pas leur véritable nom sur Google+. C’est en effet une des règles édictées par la firme américaine – ce qui n’était toutefois pas une évidence à l’ouverture des inscriptions… Eric Schmidt, dont la formulation s’avère parfois maladroite , par exemple lorsqu’il affirmait en 2009 que seuls les criminels se souciaient de protéger leurs données personnelles, est revenu sur la politique de Google vis-à-vis de l’utilisation des véritables noms sur Google+ .
The amount of time U.S. users spend on Google Inc. (GOOG) ’s new social network has grown more slowly in recent weeks, according to Experian Hitwise, indicating that the service may struggle to make headway against Facebook Inc. Users on average spent 5 minutes and 47 seconds on Google+ during the week ended Aug. 27, up about 4 percent from the previous week, according to New York-based Experian Hitwise , which tracks Internet statistics.

Average time on Google+ fell 10% in the last week, which might mean the service has peaked in usage, according to numbers from web analytics Experian Hitwise.
Update: On Monday, Bime Analytics responded to many of the concerns posted here and elsewhere on the Internet about the data presented in this infographic, specifically, the data point about active and inactive users, saying that “a user is classed as active if they have posted at least once publicly on G+.” Bime has posted a new infographic that omits that data point, which is shown below. We have updated the post accordingly.
There’s been a lot of sound and fury about the way Google has approached branded (i.e., non-personal) pages on its new Google+ social network. Much of it is a symptom of internecine warfare among the big tech blogs, some of whom waited to launch branded pages and got sandbagged by what they say is the web giant’s flip-flopping .
I’ve had a lot of back and forth with friends concerning the prospects of Google+.
As of now, it’s still unclear as to what exactly Google+ is going to be. For some, like Digg founder Kevin Rose (who replaced his longstanding blog with a redirect to his G+ page), it’s a platform for discussion, an ecosystem uninhibited by mandatory follow backs or character limits.
Selon SocialStatistics, les hommes représenteraient 86.8% du total des membres enregistrés sur Google+, alors que d’après FindPeopleOnPlus, ce pourcentage serait de 73.7%.
Well, this is awkward. It appears that by a substantial margin, Mark Zuckerberg is currently the most followed person on the new social network on the block, Google+ . According to the Google+ Statistics Counter , the Zuckerberg account has nearly 10,000 more followers than Google’s co-founder Larry Page, with 29,543 and 19,878, respectively.
When people ask “can Google+ beat Facebook?” they’re misstating the question. It’s not about one site versus another site. Google+ is bigger than that.
It may be too soon to say whether Google+, the search company’s answer to Facebook, will avoid the same disastrous fate as some of its earlier social networking products like Buzz and Wave , but there’s no shortage of action on the site among those who have early access. Members are already sharing content and photos through the site, but it seems as though most of the activity revolves around poring over the intricate details of the service and dissecting the best ways to use the features of the service.
