  1. Good observations, I agree. I still think Google+ is the most important long-term for it’s synced to your site more than the others, and produces traffic.

  2. These are great insights. The main thing is that now users are not
    liking FB because of the algorithm changes it is rolling out on timely
    bases.
    The current news feed has become boring if I compare it
    with the old one.  FB is focusing on generating money only and not on
    users’ experience.
