Number of users

If we compare users of both of these special networks, we will see that Google+ has mostly young and male users whereas Users of Facebook are not restricted to gender. There are more diverse users and they have been a part of this network for years. Although the total number of users of Google+ seem large as 100M, but they are not making a large interactive audience due to less use of google.

  • I think Google + more handy, when it comes e-commerce and marketing . Challenge for Google+ is to differentiate itself with Facebook. Circles, Hangout might be significant efforts. Moreover Google+ has assets of Google like adwords, youtube,.. so Google+ might get mightier with increasing active user and e-commerce marketing. Challenge before FB ,how it going to redefine itself to audience. Because Even FB needs to differentiate from the crowd to stay in Lead.
