Is Google+ Eating Facebook's Young?
Still, can't one assume that any respectable young person is already well acquainted with Facebook, which would therefore minimize their need to search for the social network? We think so. Meanwhile, comScore also found that Google+ searchers skewed towards higher incomes, Search Engine Land notes. Facebook saw 22.8% of searchers with an income of above $100,000 a year, while Google+ had a 32.1% makeup.
This, we imagine, can be explained by the fact that Facebook has grown so popular that its audience now closely mirrors the national population -- complete with lower incomes -- while Google+ is currently overrun with higher-income early technology adopters. Either way, Google+ is most likely too new to be pigeonholed.
