The “Oops! … I did it again” singer was also the first celebrity to reach 5 million followers on Twitter in May 2010; 50 months after Twitter was launched to public. Yet, it only took her 14 months to reach 5 million circles (November 2012) since Google Plus was launched. 50 months versus 14 months; I wonder why it took her faster to get more followers on Google Plus than on Twitter. Can somebody explain me why?
However, six million circles are relatively small compared to the number of fans other public figures’ have on other social media platforms. Rihanna, for example, has more than 67.8 million fans on Facebook, while Justin Bieber is still leading on Twitter with more than 36.1 million followers. And how is Britney Spears doing on Facebook and Twitter? The woman who was married to American dancer Kevin Federline has more than 24.6 million fans on Facebook and 24.8 followers on Twitter.

The question that we should ask ourselves: “Who are those 6 million users?” Or let me rephrase the question: “Who actually stays on Google Plus?” Could it be that Britney Spears gets popularity support from 6 million “tech-geeks”? Hhm …
