Social media networks have always been waging an undeclared war against one another, without any among those gaining an upper hand for long. For every LinkedIn, there has always been a Twitter, and every Friendster has been challenged at its own game by a Hi5. However, with over 750 million users, Facebook, at one point of time, seemed to be right at the top of the social media game. The situation is still like that, but for how long is now a matter of speculation, thanks to a little project carried out by search engine giant Google, namely Google+.
Started a little more than a couple months ago, Google+ already has more than 32 million users. Of course, the gargantuan population figure of Facebook won’t be beaten so easily, but given the constant rise in the popularity of Google+, you never know what the future might hold. While other social media websites like Orkut, LinkedIn, Twitter, and MySpace have already lost to Facebook, Google+ seems hell bent on beating the social media giant in its own game. Only time can influence the outcome of this epic social media battle now.
