Google+ is super popular - report.

The Globalwebindex issued a report saying that about one quarter of all Internet users in the world use Google+.

The US tech press has completely ignored this story and falsely believes the ignorant echo chamber BS because 1) journalists love Twitter and hate any social network that competes with Twitter; and 2) North America has the lowest usage in the world, according to this report.

If US tech journalists know anything it's that if US journalists don't use something then nobody does.

Here's Globalwebindex blog post on the news:

We spent a lot of time fine-tuning the #NexusCamera . Here are 5 things you need to know.  #Nexus5X   #Nexus6P  

1. Low light… no problem
The new Nexus Camera is the best we've ever put into our phones and is especially great in low light settings. The 12.3MP imaging sensor has large 1.55 micron pixels and a wide aperture F/2.0 lens -- this allows it to run shorter exposure times for less motion blur. For example, the Nexus 6P has 92% more light collection efficiency than the original Nexus 6. We also chose a closed-loop autofocus technology and a laser detect autofocus system, which uses a time-of-flight IR laser to enable fast autofocus in low light conditions. Finally, the HDR+ mode now automatically kicks in during low light.

2. Improved HDR+
HDR+ takes a burst of photos and then uses computational photography to create a better photo in tricky conditions like low light and strong backlighting (HDR means High Dynamic Range). This year we've improved HDR+ by starting from RAW images, just like a high-end SLR. This ability to shoot in RAW is available to any developer through the Camera2 API, so we expect to see a raft of amazing camera apps that run on these devices.

3. DxO score of 84
The DxO score of 84 for Nexus 6P makes it the third highest rated phone camera ever. In low light environments, the Nexus 6P outperforms all the other phones we’ve tested in terms of brightness, detail, less noise, and better balanced exposure and tone mapping. 

4. A faster camera is a better camera
Quality is great but speed is essential to make sure you get the right shot. The new Nexus Camera opens fast with just a double tap of the power button. The whole camera stack was optimized to make this one of the fastest launching phone cameras out there. We’ve also sped up shot-to-shot time and updated the user interface to make all the most common and urgent actions fast and easy.

5. Smarter bursts
When you press-and-hold the shutter button on the Nexus 6P, Smart Burst analyzes a stream of 30 photos per second, and uses computer vision and machine learning to select the best (up to 8), saving you work and storage space. It also highlights the best shot and automatically generates an instant-creation that best captures the entire scene, either an animated GIF, a photo-booth collage, or that perfect group shot.
