Google Plus is being set to rise as the next competitor to social media giants like Facebook and MySpace, but what about the Google +1 button? Are people paying attention to it, and will Google want to continue its use in the future?

I think the motive for the +1 button not being implemented by a lot of sites and it's usage not being as high as the Facebook's is that not many people have Google+ profiles yet. When people will get used to Google+ as they did to Facebook, they will stop ignoring it.

Great article! I think that Google has big plans for Google+, but they're still waiting for the right time to release it all to the public. Of course, we have yet to see that, but I don't think that Google+ will have the same destiny as Buzz.

That's interesting, Yoni, as it's quite the opposite with me. I can whip up graphics a lot faster and easier than I can put coherent thoughts into a blog post. Too many of my posts are just a screenshot with one paragraph or two.

Yes, let's wait it out and see if the Buzz (oops bad word choice) remains in 2015.

Kudos to Alex for the research and content of the post.

Nice analysis and nice graphics. You clearly invested some time and energy. It never ceases to amaze me how much graphs and charts can add to a blog post, though I don't have the slightest idea how to do it. I tried to save a screenshot once. After several hours, thousands of dead brain cells and probably withing seconds of a nervous breakdown, I simply gave up.

I'll probably check out Google+ in like 2015. I always wait for a trend to die before jumping on the wagon.

Time will tell if it succeeds or if it goes the way of New Coke, Bing, the Edsel and Ross Perot.
