Can Google plus compete with Facebook? A Realistic approach

Google plus vs facebook
Refer to the post when I made a bold statement by saying "Facebook on the rise Google slipping its grip". At that time many readers did not agree with me. But from the date of posting that topic, Google has continuously loosen battle to Facebook. And it realized quickly that some real steps needs to be taken to stop Facebook avalanche. And it did actually; with a weapon called Google plus (G+). Now G+ is open in public, the war between Google and Facebook is completely explicit. But is there any real reason for Facebook to worry about G+?

I would given different answer, if I myself was not a G+ users. But answer to that one of the most asked question today is 'Yes'; Facebook need to worry about the G+ rapid advancement. You may say, Google previously tried several social networks like Google Buzz that failed enormously, what is different with G+?

There are variety of differences. First of all when Google released (rather 'Experimented') social network like Google Plus its popularity on the internet was not challenged. Google knew if the 'experiment' fails then also it would still be the biggest power on internet. Now do a quick time machine journey to come back to present. For last couple of years, the Facebook has eaten up the dominance of Google in several parts around the world. And it is threatening Google in some major countries in North America and West Europe. Also Facebook made it clear that it would like to enter the search market as well, by joining with another Google rival Bing.

Now that is quite threatening for company like Google, whose primary internet business is search market. Google did not pay much attention when Yahoo and Bing joined hand or when Baidu made strategic search relationship with Bing. But when Facebook, the major rival wished to enter the search market, Google sensed danger. So it planned to hit Facebook on its arsenal i.e. social network. Also Google is experienced enough to recognize the future trend of search market, which is slowly but steadily moving towards social search. So for Google, it was almost necessary to step big foot on this market. Also the stage was almost set for Google plus. Why?

Because Google was aware that many facebook users were complaining about the changes that were made recently, be it miserable Chatting experience or latest makeover. Google was silently watching all these and was planning the perfect launching pad. And Google plus indeed was the perfect launching pad for Google. You will see that all the pitfalls of Facebook was taken into account in Google+. So now it is time for only the real internet battle for dominance. And we must enjoy it all the way from starts and until it finishes (though I have doubt if it will end or not). So here we go..

Great post. I've been doing a lot of reading on the subject lately trying to figure out how realistic this Google+ takeover is. It makes sense that Google would use all of its Search Engine Optimization powers to help promote their own products, but have they gone too far in nearly creating a monopoly? If Google+ beats Facebook, what else stands a chance?

I definitely agree that these social media networks are taking over the online world more and more. Therefore, SEO and blogging, etc., have become two super important parts of online marketing and I'm sure all SEO Consulting Services can agree on that :)

I don't think Google Plus can't compete Facebook easily because as Google is the king of search engine as well as Facebook is the king of social media site. Therefore i don't think Google can complete Facebook ever.
