Is Google+ a Ghost Town? [Infographic]

No matter how many product updates, Hangout innovations or sharing tweaks that Google lays on to its new Google+ social network, detractors still push ahead claiming you can’t put lipstick on a pig, or in this case, you can’t hide a ghost town with a population sign. But is Google+ really a ghost town? A new infographic from umpf.co.uk attempts to figure out the truth.

According to their data, Google+ has a very high population to share ratio, which hints that the site is not getting as much engagement from its users. This seems experientially true, as my Google+ isn’t exactly flooded with shares even though my entire network has dabbled there. What do you think?
