Google+ Surpasses Twitter to Become Second Largest Social Network | Search Engine Journal
Last week, Global Web Index released its December 2012 study of Active Social Platform Usage. As expected Facebook remains on top with over 50% of global internet users actively engaged on Facebook each month. The jaw-dropper of the report is that the Google Plus (G+) network has surpassed Twitter in number of active monthly users. In the month of December 2012 G+ grew to 343 million users globally, or about 25% of global internet users. Twitter came in 4th to YouTube with just over 20%.
