Google Plus -- it’s still alive (AFP)

According to the latest research from GlobalWebIndex one in four web users are still using the much-maligned social network.

When the consumer trends research firm polled its permanent sample of 3 million people across 34 countries, 23% said that they’d actively contributed to Google+ over the past month.

And, as for where the network has its biggest fans, Latin America is home to its largest user base -- 32% of web users there say they use Google+ monthly.

North America is where it’s least popular (16%) and in Europe (20%) things aren’t much better, but in the Middle East and Africa (29%) and in the Asia Pacific region excluding China (27%) -- in other words the fastest-growing internet uptake areas -- it is proving very popular.
