Anyone who has been around long enough to see Facebook wrap their arms around the world knew that once Google announced Google+, there would be a giant battle about to happen. It wasn’t long ago that Google tried to grab new ground with their Google Wave online platform, but that one did not really work out. As a matter of fact, after a quite strong start, the bugs started to show themselves and the platform quickly went belly up. Whether that was due to the many users using the service at once or just poor programming, we will probably never know. One thing is for sure, and that is that Google really wants to enter the social networking scene.
Personally, I think it will be quite a while before any new social networking platform will be strong enough to match up to the power of Facebook. However, that shouldn’t stop anyone from trying, right? The statistics show that the chance of success is probably the strongest for Google since they are already servicing billions of users each year with their many different platforms, search being their strongest one of course.
