JUST one week after going public to mainstream web users social networking site Google+ is giving Facebook reason to worry.

According to web traffic tracking firm Experian Hitwise growth in visitors to the site has grown by 1269 per cent since the site invited users to join without an invite from a friend.

These numbers are incredible… Wow-weeee.

Just curious, what’s everyone’s feedback with Google+. I know this is bad, but I really haven’t gotten into it, so I can’t really form an opinion.

I’ve heard it all- some people love it and some people hate it…

I put the Google +1 button on all my pages and the only +1 clicks I received were from me.

So I took them off, I honestly dont think that the general public is into this.

Hmmmm… that’s interesting… I think it all has to do with the vertical that you’re focused on. I think for the igaming world, the 2 most popular social media channels are still Facebook & Twitter. I’m sure that Google+ will catch-on. You may want to hold onto that for your site before letting go too soon, IMO.
