The Poor Group Rising
This shows a trend of emerging South Asia (once called Poor Group). The group consists of politically unstable nations but it is not hindering the technological progress. The youth in these countries have taken the responsibility of technological advancement in their hand, and are actively using Social Networks like Twitter and Facebook. For instance, the youth in Nepal are using Facebook to bring political stability in the nation, by seeking legal help from Supreme Court, in stabilizing the nation. India saw Anti-Corruption Twitter and Facebook movements, in the past few months.
South Asia, with India, is the group of nations having close to half of World’s population. The group is coming to the Global Economic play with the IT and ITes revolution led by India.
Accuracy of the Numbers?
This number is fairly less if yesterday’s news of Google Plus reaching 10 Million figure is to be believed. But it has to be noted that it was a prediction from an expert, and these statistics seem authentic on users indexed. The site is however not associated with Google, and the accuracy or completeness can be questionable.
WHAT IS GOOGLE + - GOOGLE PLUS
Google+ (Google Plus) is a social networking service operated by Google Inc. The service launched on June 28, 2011 in an invite-only "field testing" phase.The following day, existing users were allowed to invite friends, who are above 18 years of age, to the service to create their own accounts. However, this was quickly suspended a day after there was "insane demand" for accounts.
Google+ integrates social services such as Google Profiles and Google Buzz, and introduces new services Circles, Hangouts, Sparks, and Huddles. Google+ will also be available as a desktop application and as a mobile application, but only on Android and iOS operating systems. Sources such as The New York Times have declared it Google's biggest attempt to rival the social network Facebook,which had over 750 million users in 2011.
