The one area where Google Plus has to necessarily show improvement is this: user engagement. We had written about this before – that the average person online in the US spends 6.75 HOURS a month on Facebook, and just 3 MINUTES on Google Plus

Google Plus Statistics: 135 Million Active Users, 500 Million Profiles Created

We had spotted a very sad stat on Google Plus some time back –Time Spent on Site Statistics – Facebook:Google Plus :: 405:3

Today we spotted some encouraging stats on Google Plus – some 135 million users login and use the site atleast once in a month, and a total of 500 million profiles have been created so far (Source). Some 235 million people have used atleast one feature.

This is our reading on Google Plus: there is a group of nerds that it appeals to, and they are regular users. For others, as John Battelle asked Vic Gundotra, Google might be better off providing a login via facebook button.

Google Plus Statistics: Two-Thirds of Google Plus Users Are Men

We had spotted some interesting Google Plus statistics. We spotted this today:

“According to figures released today from Website-Monitoring.com, two-thirds of Google+ users are men, which stands in contrast to Facebook, where a majority of users are women, including 55% in the U.S.

Konrad Caban, the manager director for Website-Monitoring.com parent company Siteimpulse, speculates that more men use Google+ because it is seen as more of an extension of other Google services such as Android and Gmail and is not as well-known for being a social hangout as Facebook.”

Well, all that Google homepage promotion had to have an impact. We had spotted Google Plus stats before – we spotted this today:

“In December, Google+ reached a new high of 20 million unique visitors (considered to be the primary indicator of popularity), 50 million visits, and 200 million Page Views.

It is now safe to say that Google+ is becoming an enormous success, with nearly half of the unique visitors of Twitter (40,411,065 unique visitors in December). With a steep upward trend and knowledge of the power behind a Google product, expect continued growth from the unequaled search engine’s social platform known for ingenuity, creativity, and revolutionary product offerings”
