Is Google+ Beginning To Fail Already?

Google+ was unveiled by the search engine giants a few months ago during the summer, and the welcome was absolutely astonishing; but despite the incredibly successful launch, Google+ is reporting that posts to the brand new social networking site are down by a massive 41 percent.

When Google launched Google+, they had hoped that this unique, new social networking site would give them the edge over the multi-million user strong, Facebook, which launched in 2004.

One effort to boost the sites appeal to users was to offer them the ability to link their Twitter accounts to Google+, therefore meaning that if you post on one site, it will also be posted on the other.

Some other stats suggest that publily shared posts have fallen from 0.68 a day to 0.40, which as you can guess, is not very good news at all for the multi-billion dollar company.

    The reason that Facebook got so popular so quickly was that EVERYONE was on it. You signed up and you would find many of the people you had forgotten from school/college/work right there waiting.

    Google+ can never take off while access to it is still restricted.

    It’s strange because Google already made this same mistake with Wave.

    Also, I think Google+ requires a Google account, which not everyone has (not everyone wants one).
