How have the demographics shifted since G+ came out of beta?
Basically what the study shows is what I suspected all along. G+ users consist of early adopters, nerds & tech geeks like myself. I also suspected it to be mainly made up of people either trying to land grab, be known as an early adopter or people who needed to be familiar with it for business i.e internet marketing or journalism.
Yes there seems to have been an influx of students in August but I assume it was out of curiosity as they don’t appear to be using it too much. I’m trying to like G+ and use it myself but it’s FAR less social then say Facebook, and my stream is mainly filled with people sharing articles and news, that’s really about it.
Interesting observations in this study
- 83% of Google Plus users were classified as inactive
- Female users rose from 28% to 30%
