Now that the initial excitement about Google+ (among those of nerdist disposition, at least) has subsided, one wonders whether real people have come to enjoy its environs.
Is there a disaffected Facebook-loathing underclass, ready to riot against the rule of Zuckerberg? Is there a subsection of humanity that is craving its own virtual space in order to meet its own kind of virtual friends?
I am grateful to GeekWire for offering something of a +1 to a piece of research by Experian Hitwise. This study attempts to analyze where Google+ might have gained sway.
