More from the Google Kool-Aid drinkers Not that accurate. You’d have to take into account the time Google took to amass a following, considering most Plus users were already Google users. Twitter and Facebook took 700-plus days to get to that point because they had to acquire their users from scratch.
Even if you don’t want to start counting from the late 1990s, the Kool-Aid drinkers conveniently forget the ﬂops that were Buzz and Wave. At the very least, fairness should dictate that their poor starts need to be factored in to this graph. If Google had not learned from either, it would have not got Plus to where it is.
