Google+ Demographics: A Look at the Top 5 Countries Using Google Plus.February 22, 2012
There’s been a lot of debate recently about the possible success (or failure?) of Google+. Google themselves have been a little cagey when it comes to giving information on their userbase, and whilst Larry Page boasted 90 million users globally, Larry didn’t quite explain their metrics in their entirety, as this post from Forbes showed.
Last week Website Monitoring shared some interesting research showing the overall demographics for Google+ users, and whilst the findings are fascinating I wanted to find out how these averages differed by country. Having identified the US, India, Brazil, UK and Canada as being the top five countries based on the estimated number of users, I’ve looked at the relationship status, interests, sex and age of Google Plus users based on the locations stated in their profiles.
This has produced some interesting statistics, such as:
- There are almost as many Indian men as there are Female Americans
- 76.02% of sampled Indian Google+ users are single, and are more interested in forming relationships and dating combined than networking
- Brazilian Google+ users have far more ‘it’s complicated’ relationships than the other four countries sampled
- The trend of 18 – 24 year old users being the most popular age group within Google Plus’ userbase appears to be true across the top five countries sampled, however there is a larger percentage of 18 – 24 year old users in Brazil (69.90%)
- Plus a whole number of other interesting nuggets!
