    Great post. Thanks for sharing!

    Whew is this “rapid growth” of Google+ you talk about? The site’s traffic has been in a freefall for almost TWO MONTHS now. IT had three weeks of sign ups (but few users) and sincethen, it has stalled. In fact, Facebook’s lead (in both users and traffic) has INCREASED over Google+ in the last 7 weeks.

  3. I agree that Facebook is not going into decline any time soon. Their recent changes to the functionality seem to be in response to what Google + was offering, however, I found it overcomplicated the site. I tried Google + and was immediately put of by what seemed like too much detail and too much to have to understand just to get going. I think that the next big player will be the one that really masters making it easy to filter out the information you don’t wish to see in an easy no-brainer way. I’m even beginning to think that it might be worth paying for a clutter free easy to navigate platform to communicate with my social networks

      Yes it’s interesting how Facebook have captured some of the new features of Google +. I’m also finding Facebook very cluttered and too busy – a lot of people complained about the recent changes. I think that there is definitely room in the social media marketplace for a new social network that is clutter free… the question is would 800 million people move over? This is what is currently keeping Facebook at the top. I’m looking forward to seeing how the changes impact Facebook long term and of course watching how Google + tries to compete.

  4. we must know that is’s very intersting to be updated with your friends , and now there is a big chalenge with facebook and Google+ .
    so who will win this race ?

  5. Interesting post. But your pop-up drives me bananas.

    I think that social media itself will cause it’s own decline. So many choices and information overload and noise I think will cause people to turn off!
    Google+ growth I would think was due to people thinking that they should be there so they just signed up and have not been back since

    • Lilach says:

      Thanks Chris. It will be interesting to see how social media grows/declines over the next year or so. I’m seeing a huge growth particularly in Twitter and whilst many people left Facebook in the recent changes more are flooding to the site.

      Google + will be interesting to watch. I do use it but at the moment my main focus is on Twitter and Facebook. For me it’s not about the choices it’s the time they take for each one to really get good results.

    Many enjoy twitter as a fast tweet on a simple quick message. The android market has increased and google has taken a rise in members. Facebook? Perhaps it may take a small decline in membership?

      Whilst the numbers have dropped on Facebook, particularly with the recent changes it does still continue to grow at a phenomenal rate – I don’t think Facebook are worried:)

    ‘they spend 7 hours on Facebook’. per day, per month?

    ‘I’m also finding Facebook very cluttered and too busy’ me too.

    Facebook changes so often, and now with the new time line, many are opting out for Twitter.
    Can say I blame them. Loathe the new time line stuff.
    BTW, love your 5 Crazy ways to get Buyers……

    • Lilach says:

      Thanks Margaret. Well it will certainly be an interesting year for Facebook. I see many more changes coming, particularly as they will probably go public this year.

      I actually like the new timeline but it did take a while to get used to it, now that I have I prefer it:)

      Appreciate your great feedback about my eBook, thanks:)

    I think you make some great points, however I would like to point out in terms of advertising revenue etc that there are a lot of users like myself that rarely ever physically go on facebook. I am probably counted in the data but most of my posts etc come from automated stuff from twitter to facebook or using external programs to use facebook.
    In the end I really have never ‘liked’ facebook and I think there is a good portion of folks who tolerate because they have a few friends they can only contact that way. I think the business cycles on the internet are so short that even big boys like google could vanish in the blink of an eye. Netscape used to be quite big… and no more.

    I wonder if like me some FB users have got bogged down after LIKING too many? Getting to grips with the new timeline made me aware of how much rubbish I had to trawl down to see anything interesting on my personal FB page for instance – often as a result of clicking through from a website or entering some silly competition. Takes a while to weed out the dross too! Twitter relies on lots of posts but FB pages can scare off fans with too many perhaps?

  13. I appreciate you sharing this information with me. I found it quite useful!! Have a beautiful day!!
