Seems Google has falling traffic. First time I think for such a drop.

If this is correct, it's rather surprising. I read somewhere that membership in Google+ is growing at a rapid rate. If membership is growing, then traffic should also be growing.

The traffic I am receiving from Google + is down something like 50%. Interest in it has really died off.

The bloom is off the rose. And like Amorphophallus titanum*, has not been well-received as regards the sniff test.

Google+ is really just G's Management team running scared from Facebook. There PR team team is huffing and puffing that they are going to be superior because they will roll all G products into one.

Google still isn't the King of active web based email accounts (A LA Hotmail and Yahoo) It took years for them even to crack 25% of the market.

I think Facebook is more than safe in the space as long as they keep being innovative and listening to their users.

It took my 55 year old mom 2 hours to setup her facebook and months to really figure out how to use it. Think she is going to want to jump ship? Many people have the same situation.

How much of Google+ traffic is marketers marketing to other marketers?

I'm thinking that this may be true of early adopters of social media in general, but it might be particularly true of Google+.
