Google , launched in late June, is Google's newest endeavour in the social networking segment. Its previous attempts, Google Buzz and Google Wave could not compete with the popularity of Facebook, which has more than 750 million users. Google , however, seems to be turning the tide with a rapid popularity across the world. Google is presently one of the fastest growing websites, says ComScore.
ComScore, however, also highlights that the fastest may not always be the best. It referred to MySpace losing ground to Facebook in spite of having a rapid growth in its initial days. In last few months, MySpace has lost a number of visitors.
The news of Google hitting 25 million mark comes days after market researcher Hitwise claimed a drop in the number of visitors to the new social network. According to Hitwise, Google attracted 1.79 million visitors, down from 1.86 million visitors during the week ending on July 23. One of the notable things said in Hitwise report is that average time spent on site dropped 10 percent from 5.50 min to 5.15 min.
