If popularity is based on the number of followers, socialstatistics.com tells it all. As of this writing, Mark Zuckerberg has 34,759 followers, leading Google’s co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page at 18,715 and 23,633, respectively.
Mark Zuckerberg co-founded Facebook in 2004, which made him to Forbes list of world billionaires. He currently has $13.5 billion worth of fortune. Facebook, for the record, is the biggest social network to date with estimated global users of 700-750 million. Though Facebook hasn’t confirmed the latest numbers yet, the company is expected to announce when it hits the 1-billion-users milestone.
A week ago, the search giant Google announced its own social network called Google+ (Plus). Google+ is considered as the new main rival of Facebook, with social features at its launch identical to the latter. Google+ is still on its beta stage and it hasn’t been rolled out to all Google users just yet. Being said that, number of total active users of the new social network has still yet to be known.
It’s really interesting to see Zuckerberg topping the list of Google+ most popular users, and though it appears he’s doing nothing with his profile, at least for those visible to the public, I’m sure he’s exploring what Google brought to it. He probably believes on the principle: To win a competition, one should know the competitor’s product. Right, Zuck?
