Every week we compile lots of interesting stats here at Fanscape. Last week we traded all kinds of interesting stats. As usual, we’re easily swayed by pretty infographics and we’ve got one here thanks to the fine folks at Umpf, a UK based social research company. Now, let it be known that we are fans of Google and Google products, such as Google+, YouTube, Gmail, etc., but this particular infographic takes specific aim at Google+. And when you put it side by side with Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, well, it doesn’t look so good. But take it with a grain of salt. We’re sharing this because it’s interesting to see, but we think G+’s real benefits are the tie to Search which is one of the most important web-based marketing channels for any brand. Ok ok, enough of our banter, check out this infographic (click on it to expand and read):
