Top brands on Google+ are now in the phase of the highest growth acceleration. Socialbakers’ statistical comparison of the biggest brands in the most popular social networking platforms show that Google+ brands are growing their fan base even faster than brands on Twitter. What is the reason behind it and will this trend continue so Google+ can finally overtake the second position after Facebook?
To find out the answers we made a comparison of top 40 brand and media pages across Facebook, Google+, and Twitter. As we mentioned in our previous findings, there’re different dynamics of fans liking and engaging with social brands versus social media. Google+ obviously provides better platform for photos and more room for message, which we believe is the major driving factor of more fans coming and liking this platform. Nevertheless, the same brands on Google+ started to stagnate in their fan growth as we pointed out two days ago on our blog. In contrast, Twitter (note: in it’s old look) is better positioned to spread short news mostly conveyed by media pages – therefore the significant increase of fans on Twitter.
