SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— It’s now easier for Google Plus users to figure out just how popular or unpopular their pages are. Google is adding a view counter to profile pages.
It gives users a better view of how they’re doing, for example there are a number of followers on my Twitter account and I can evaluate my feedback that way. With page views, you see how many people are visiting your page and the activity it creates. For businesses, it’s important and for individuals I think it’s more of an ego thing.
Google Plus has been criticized because it doesn’t have as much of a wide appeal as other social media sites like Twitter and Facebook.
