Facebook keeps massive lead despite losing traffic
Google+ has 60-percent more unique visitors than nine months ago, according to traffic analytics company ComScore. Public Relations consultant Morten Myrstad shared the figures through the social network, estimating Google+ to have received over 110 million unique international visitors in June, compared to 66.7 million last November, with US traffic increasing from 15.2 million to 27.7 million in the same period.
Numbers for Facebook were also given for a comparison. Unique visitors in November totaled 166 million in the US, dropping to 158 million in May but rising again to 159.8 million in June. Despite Facebook having almost 11 times as many unique visitors as Google+ in the US, the Facebook-to-Google+ visitor ratio has decreased to 5.8.
In the recent American Customer Satisfaction Index E-Business Report, Google tied with Wikipedia in scoring 78 out of a possible 100. Despite the far higher user numbers, Facebook's satisfaction score declined from last year's score of 66 to 61, as users were said to be frustrated with continual interface adjustments.
