The Real Google+ Numbers
#Forbes #Google+Death

The number of truly active users on Google GOOGL -0.95%+ is significantly less than 1% of the total 2.2 billion Google users, according to a study published on April 14, 2015 by Eric Enge at Stone Temple Consulting, a digital marketing firm with offices in Boston and California.

Enge analyzed more than 500,000 randomly selected Google+ profiles. Since a Google profile is created automatically when people sign up with Google, it was no surprise to find that 90% of the people with profiles on Google+ had never posted publicly there at all. Enge extrapolated this analysis across the 2.2 billion users on Google and concluded that while the “active profiles” on Google+ amount to 111 million users, only 6.7 million users have 50 or more posts ever, and only 3.5 million have 50 or more posts in the last 30 days.

So the reshare of a linked article works without jumping through hoops on Friendica great!

i notice the generated hashtags at the bottom of the article are an aggregate of the share and reshare tags. So that is handy.
