Data shows Google+ traffic jumping up by 55 Percent in December
There’s no denying it, Google is banking that its Google+ service is going to be a healthy competitor  in the social networking landscape. Knowing that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus prioritizes Google+ over other services, it’s bound to be used by more people than ever. Showing its continued popularity, the social networking service established a new mark in the month of December.

Interestingly, Google+ traffic has jump an impressive 55 percent in the month of December when compared to November – based on data tracked by Experian Hitwise. Moreover, Hitwise tweeted that “Google+ total US visits reach more than 49 million in Dec-11, biggest month to date.

In an accompanying tweet, Hitwise shows a chart that details the surge with Google+ usage, which seemingly took off back in August. Since then, the social networking service has been sitting above the 10 million visit mark, but of course, December saw a huge gain of its own.

In the greater scheme of things, there is still plenty of work needed in order to knock off the titans in the social networking industry. However, with the proliferation of Google’s ever popular mobile platforms, one can expect to see Google+ making a good stand in the long run.
