NASA Quickly Surpasses 20,000 Google+ Followers
Google is all about technology and NASA is all about technology – albeit of a slightly advanced nature. This convergence of ideals makes the two a good fit for each other and so it comes as no surprise that in the few months that Google+ has been live, NASA’s presence on the growing social network has shot past the 20K followers mark.
This milestone of course is nothing new in terms of social media for NASA. The Space exploration body had a spectacular show of support by people in social media, especially during the final launch of the Shuttle program held a couple months ago. It was particularly interesting to see that big tech sites and blogs were covering the event with such loyalty and this sort of confirmed that NASA has a strong following among tech enthusiasts—naturally.
NASA is presently the 14th most followed page on Google+ and this ranking is set to grow as NASA unveils new programs and aspirations. The rate of growth among Facebook, Twitter and Google+ in terms of NASA popularity has also been staggering. It was revealed in a blog post that it took NASA 469 days to reach 20K followers on Twitter; 276 days to reach 20K on Facebook, but just 4 days to reach 20K on Google+. This is phenomenal stuff and says among other things, that Google+ has a greater pool of tech enthusiasts, something which perhaps won’t surprise many pundits.
