Google+ to catch up with Facebook, say developers

(SPOT.ph) After surveying developers of app-creating company Appcelerator Titanium in July, it was discovered that two-thirds of the respondents believe that Google's new social networking site Google+ has the potential to be at par with Facebook, reports GMA News.

 

According to the results posted on Appcelerator's website, "68 percent of developers say that leveraging Google's assets (eg: Search, YouTube, Maps, etc) trumps Facebook's social graph lead. 49% say that Google shows more innovation than Facebook with new Google+ features like circles, sparks, hangouts, etc." However, 83 percent of developers said they still intend to prioritize Facebook for social networking. Twitter is second favored site with 73 percent, then Google+ with 72 percent, LinkedIn with 30 percent, and Foursquare with 23 percent.

 

While Wired.com believes that Google+ leads when it comes to privacy, the International Business Times noted that the winner of "the social media war" is unclear. The seven-year-old Facebook has over seven million users while only five million have signed up for Google+ as of July. According to the International Business Times, "one thing holds true: social media users are the ultimate beneficiaries as the two rivals continue to improve their products in order to win over customers."
