Which Social Network will be King in 2012? Google+ or Facebook
Who do you think is going to win the social networking wars between Facebook & Google+ in 2012, and beyond & Which one do you like most, Explain why?
Google with its high technology will score over Facebook but not in 2012. It will take time - say two to five years to overtake the Facebook.
the pace of technology appears to be so fast that the top social media platform could be someone new like the pinterest platform. if I were to pick from the current leaders I'd say Facebook would keep their lead.
Facebook will be #1 until someone comes up with something equal, but improved. Google+ is horrible, not ergonomic, not user-friendly, and nothing like Facebook for social networking.
People are creatures of habit. Facebook definitely has the head start. It would take Facebook making some big mistakes for them to lose their users.
I like Facebook's new Timeline. It's beautiful. Google+ just isn't anything special yet.
I think Facebook will prevail, but who knows? Only time can tell.
I think Facebook will stay on top, it will take a lot for another social network to over take them now. And i certainly dont think it would be Google+ anyway, i dont see it as anything special and practicaly everyone i speak to knows nothing about it.
To Me,Google+ will take the lead in 2012.Google + has managed to hit 10 million users in just 16 days whereas it took around one and half year approximately for other social giants such as Facebook and twitter to reach this mark.
Facebook is also becoming a marketing place and much more complex now so there will be less difference between it and Google + but the future belongs to Google +.
I think that facebook will continue to be dominant over google plus unless they keep making more stupid changes that are unnecessary and confusing.
in my opinion, facebook will still be the king of social network in 2012..
Because of numbers of current subscribers and clout online, many say Facebook. Let's see what happens as more people discover Google+. Perhaps it all depends on how many inducements and apps Google+ is willing to offer. . .
When Google+ was released I wouldn't have been able to say, but now I think it will still be Facebook. Many of my Facebook friends were excited to try out google+, but the fad lasted about a month before I noticed nobody posted anything on google+ anymore. They all went back to Facebook because nobody was using google+.
I have only heard a few things about Google+, but from what I know about Google, my personal opinion is that...I don't like most of their designs. I mean, the search engine is magnificent! But I can't stand the email. I don't think Google+ will ever be on top, it's not that popular, definitely not popular enough to get larger than Facebook in less than a year. It needs to gain lots of positive recognition.
Facebook will probably stay on top. Unless someone comes out with something fabulous, and much better than Facebook. Remember when Myspace was the "big thing"? well, now it's Facebook, we don't know how much longer it'll stay on top, but I'm pretty sure Google+ doesn't have the odds to be on top..this year at least, or maybe ever.
But keep in mind that also it needs a catchy name. Think about it, 'Facebook', that's catchy, right? It actually is pretty unusual but catchy. Now compare it to 'Google+'(Google plus), that's not too catchy. Think about big websites, like 'Twitter', 'Youtube', 'Yahoo', or even 'Myspace'. They're pretty catchy. I'm not saying that Google isn't a catchy name, believe me it is, but Google+ is pretty much the same name as the search engine..Just with a "+".
To conclude, I believe that Facebook has the bigger chances of staying on top. While Google has to make it's way to the top.
Facebook. I have been utterly unimpressed with Google+ so far, and so has everyone I know...except for the 10 or so people out of about 700 that think that Google+ is the end all of social networking sites and can't wait for the rest of use lame-os to abandon Facebook...yeah right.
I believe this will continue to be a year of Facebook. With the impending IPO and the press that will be around that they will surely have a new spotlight placed on the company however they are still the dominate social network and it is there to loose in terms of Market share to Google. I'm not sure Google will have that many unique things to truly pull away enough users from Facebook at least within 2012.
facebook would on first cos its familiar with all th epoeple over the world and g+ is just a new concept and it it will take still this year to compete to facebook. so its facebook...
Google+ will never rise into full being- it's a flawed idea at its best. Facebook will run, because the idea it pursues has social validity and need, which is friendship.
Facebook will still rule over 2012, though Google+ is going to making a lot of attraction.
Google+ have to wait for compete strongly with Facebook. I think Facebook would be on top till next 2015...because in G+ there is no enough people and application like FB..
i think this year Google plus will be in #1 because in one month it had so many users http://deluxepages.blogspot.com/p/downl … games.html
I think Facebook will be because its more personal. It seems everyone thats uses Facebook has their entire family and friends on it with them. I've even seen entire neighborhoods posting their neighborhood get togethers on Facebook.
Facebook has become extremely popular and a mainstay with most people on the Internet today.
Facebook will continue to be king for now but Google+ has and will continue to take more of the tech literate crowd.
I think the two will actually diverge with Facebook continuing to be the family, friends social network and Google+ being better for tech news, photography, music, editorial comments, etc...
I like Facebook to keep up/catch up with family and friends and I like G+ because I learn more.
Maybe both will be kings of different aspects of Social Media.
They will both decline. We need something new which is leaning more on productivity similar to freelance sites.
Face book is as social as you get.
Without doubt, I believe facebook is going to win
FACEBOOK! Definitely Facebook.
Do you agree? Google+ is just starting. Facebook knows all the tricks. Facebook will definitely be the King in 2012
