Nearly 1 in 4 of web users (aged 16 - 64) have used Google+ within the past month, according to new research from Global Web Index.
GWI also found that by region, G+'s usage rates peak at 32 percent in Latin America and 29 percent in MENA, with North America notably behind at just 16 percent.
GWI said in introducing its data:
Despite having stripped back some of its core features recently, 1 in 4 internet users still use the service each month (rising higher in some fast-growth markets). And although some people have accounts because they were required to create them in order to use other services, it’s clear that Google+ still boasts a loyal following.
In a social networking world dominated by Facebook, it’s worth noting that the typical internet user is now active on around 2.8 different networks. And for a decent percentage of online adults, Google+ is one of those networks.
