Google + no. 2 Social Network




Google+ has passed Twitter and YouTube to become the world's second largest social network, beaten out only by Facebook, according to U.K. market research firm Trendstream's Global Web Index (GWI).
Despite early reports declaring the social network a failing enterprise, Google+ attracted some 343 million monthly active users in the fourth quarter of 2012, up 27 percent from the year prior. The firm defined active users as those who have used or contributed to the site in the past month. In recent months, Google has more closely tied Google+ to its other services, so signing up for a Gmail accountmeans creating a Google+ profile, for example.
