The most popular user on Google's new social network is the CEO of Facebook, who has 50 percent more followers than the CEO of Google. It's geek humiliation!
One week after launch, Google Plus is already dominated by Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg, who with 29,543 followers is trailed distantly by Google CEO Larry Page (19,878), Google senior VP Vic Gundotra (15,793) and Google co-founder Sergey Brin (15,646), according to SocialStatistics.com.
Of course, the only people on Google Plus right now are hard core nerds; if the Facebook clone ever takes off, the likes of Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga will assume their rightful place near the top of the rankings. But in the meantime the geeks have a new way to measure their manhood, to point, to laugh and to strut. Don't deny them their ritualistic shaming. They live for this bullshit.
