G+ Experiment: The Results

Recently there has been a lot of reports out there on how Google plus is a ghost town.. In fact The Wall Street Journal in a recent article mentioned that Pinterest has more vibrancy than Google + ... All this because of some new data from research firm comScore Inc. that shows Google+ users are signing up, but they are not doing much there. I needed to show that this was not the case!

On March 7, 2012 LA Web Studio Marketing Team with the help of +PJ Rosenberg established a social media experiment to test the viral effect of popularity in G+ platform in comparison to Facebook.. A massive amount of work went on the back end to collect the data we wanted and a lot of emphasis went on tracking the re-sharing at multiple levels.

Below is the actual paragraphs that were posted on both social media platforms, (of course with a variation in names):

------------------------------------------------------
Help Me With My G+ Experiment

Its a simple experiment to prove the viral effect of popularity in G+ platform is much higher in comparison to Facebook .. I am currently under 5,000 people who are following me on both platforms.. I have posted the same thing on both social media and am waiting results: I like as many people as possible to share this post with as many of their circle in the next 24 hours. Once you share it, please also add me to your circle. (You can call the circle temporary and delete it after the experiment.. I am not hunting for followers)

The conclusion will prove which platform can create a better social viral awareness.. At the end of the experiment I will do a Press Release with the names of all the people who made this experiment possible. Lets test the power of true social media!!
--------------------------------------------------------

Results:

After 24 hours the results were compared and nothing but amazing came out of Google plus. Not only there was an outrageous amount of interaction on G+ but there was also a huge community growth. The initial re-share was under 5 minutes on Google + and it took over 2 hours on Facebook. Almost 40% of the people who participated in the experiment on Google + gained 8 - 12% new followers themselves, in comparison to 2% on Facebook. On Google + almost 73% of the shares resulted in comments on other people’s stream. On Facebook it was about 6% engagement. The next data is probably not a shock to most , 72% were male on G+, compared to 58% on Facebook. On both platforms, Majority of the shares were in the later hours of the night or early morning.

Here is the Exact Numbers to the Data:

Google +
Gained: 1,112 New Followers
Re-shared: 1,525 Times
+1 : 918

Facebook
Gained: 213 New Followers
Re-shared: 42 Times
Likes: 28

Conclusion:

Google + is the best social media platform when it comes to Viral effect of Popularity, also there is a pride with the Google community like no other network where they stand up for the platform. I will hold this experiment against anyone who likes to argue that Facebook has better engagement and or calls Google + a ghost town again! Oddly enough an hour to completing this report, Facebook block my initial post including the data and marked it as inappropriate and I can’t seem to find out why? Thank you to everyone who participated, this G+ experiment was a complete success.

Great comparison between cloud storage providers, and how they compare with Google Drive (which I am enjoying so far, TOS be damned)!

THE THREE AMIGOS: SOCIAL MEDIA, SEO & SMARTPHONES

In today’s world, we are no more rooted to our computer for staying connected. This is largely because of the advent of smart phone and mobile apps.

A cell phone is now more than an instrument to make or receive calls. It is now your desktop on the GO and has enabled social media on the GO. (read more about social media on the go here http://goo.gl/yIIdC)

SOCIAL MEDIA & SEO

According to a study by GroupM Search, 48% of the online buyers use combination of normal and social search during the buying process and the percentage is increasing constantly.

Consumers search every day brands their friends know and like, and 30% base their buying decision on their friends’ evaluations.

The quantity of Smartphones and users accessing Internet through mobile devices is increasing fast around the globe and ITU believes mobile devices will surpass computers as the most popular way to connect Internet within five years.

According to Strategy Analytics almost 530 million users used the mobile Web at the end of 2009 and the company estimates the browsing to increase to over 1 billion by 2015.

Bringing social dimension to mobile search can be the next big thing if it is user friendly and well promoted. (read more about social media & seo here http://goo.gl/xvqHN)

Social media campaigns & creating brand value on mobile devices

Fine tuning marketing strategy for smartphones

Social networking has become the fastest-growing activity on mobile devices. Brands must spot the trend and take this noticeable shift into account while devising their strategies.

Getting a fair idea of consumer mindset

By combining activity, location and time, the three key mobile data types, marketers can get a fair idea of consumer mindset, one also taking into account their shifting priorities and personas.

Smartphone Market and The Social Media View

There is some interesting analysis that can be drawn when we start to layer social media data with sales data.

The big questions remain about how this data can be used to create models, predict future outcomes, and make business decisions as the data comes in. (read more about the smartphone market and the social media view http://goo.gl/3A9db)
