Shelly Palmer Radio Report – July 23, 2012

Still not on Google Plus? A lot of people aren’t, but maybe they should be.  In a new survey that measures user satisfaction of social media websites, Google Plus came out on top, while Facebook’s score was at a record low.  Google Plus’ growth has been slow since its debut in 2011. It currently has about 250 million users, while Facebook has over 900 million.  But Facebook users are often left dissatisfied and confused by sudden changes in interface and privacy settings.  Just because Facebook has been on top for a few years, doesn’t mean it will be on top forever.  Remember MySpace and Friendster? Yeah, me either.  In the end, it’s our friends that we’re addicted to, not any individual website. Google is betting that by providing a better user experience and better tools that eventually, Google Plus is where everyone’s friends will be.
