Infographic: Google’s Social Network Evolution

Our friends at CPC Strategy just released a cool infographic on the various social networking statistics and impact of Google’s social properties featuring a bit of our data, among others. Check it out below and be sure to share. Since Google Plus' launch in 2011 the social network had grown to a giant mass of 500 Million profiles by the end of 2012. Google has leveraged their previously large user base to help draw users towards creating this massive amount of profiles in such a short time. The active user base on google+ leverages it's communities and connections to have the highest conversion rate for shared products out of any other social network. Being only beaten by the one on one connection of email based sharing of product links.

It's purchase of Youtube, a service launched in 2005, has been a large attraction of viewers and user accounts for Google. Reports say that every month 50 perfect of the internet population with visit or interact with youtube and it's contents. To put Youtube's audience into comparison it would be the third largest country right under China and India. I believe it's safe to assume that it won't be too long before Youtube will become larger than either.
