Zuckerberg popular and it’s not on Facebook?Posted: July 6, 2011
The most popular Google+ user? It’s Facebook’s Zuckerberg: So, based on the buzz, Google+ is the geek-chic social-networking upstart that’s going to challenge Facebook, right?
Then why is the most popular person on the fledgling service … Mark Zuckerberg?
As of Tuesday morning, the Facebook CEO, who surprised some folks by being one of the first to create a Google+ account, had 29,543 “followers” on the site.
That’s nearly 10,000 more than Google CEO Larry Page, who clocked in at 19,878 friends for second place, according to the Google+ social statistics page.
Google unveiled its long-anticipated social network last week. Since then, it’s been opened up to journalists, bloggers and others in the tech community, but not yet to the general public.
