Increased Integration of Google+ Sharing

Josh Martin recently posted this chart created by VatorNews in July showing that Google+ sharing buttons now outnumber both Twitter sharing and follow buttons combined.

Social sharing buttons installed on websites are becoming increasly more important for companies and individuals. I wrote a post about factors to consider for social sharing integration as well as an outline of various social sharing platforms.

Although Google sharing might be taking Twitter by storm. Facebook’s presence across the Web is still king.


10.8% of sites analyzed have adopted the Facebook Like button alone with additional inclusions of the Like box, Facebook Connect and Facebook Recommendations.

The increase of Google+ sharing could be due to the fresh hype of the platform and everyone wants to look innovation; however, it is still a great statistic  to note.
