Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    How the hell do you get from that dataset to 83% G+ inactive ? If indeed, maybe G+ users have more important things than farmville.

  2. Stuart Douglas says:

    In honor of making my time on G+ more active, I just logged on and put BR into my circle of people I am following. : )

    My plus feed has about 6 posts a day for about 150 people that I’m following.

    Compare that to facebook where I might see about a bzillion posts from the 300 or so friends I have.

    It’s not a social networking site, it’s an identity site wrapped in the guise of a social networking site.

  4. Andrew says:

    There are plenty of criticisms in the comments on that GigaOm post. The original data that delivered the inactive stat is pulled from accounts that opted in to indexing by a site, which itself can only poll their public data.

    probably.. but then it’s probably pretty much the same for facebook.
    i know i have a dummy facebook account i never use
    it’s not like they delete your account if it’s inactive or seldom used is it.

    along with a skype account i rarely if ever use
    yahoo account i use for selective purposes
    msn account same
    and several others
    etc etc
