In The Google Plus Beta Test, Mark Zuckerberg Is #1

Facebook's Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg is the most followed person on Google Plus. Perhaps that would be a more dramatic phenomenon if he ranked number one when the search giant's product was available to all, but in its current limited beta -- well, so what?

Is this ironic — or not? Facebook’s Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg is the most followed person on Google Plus. Perhaps that would be a more dramatic phenomenon if he ranked number one when the search giant’s product was available to all, but in its current limited beta — well, so what?

The folks who scored access to the Google Plus beta before the proverbial window shut can very accurately be called techie insiders of sorts. The five-digits-or-so of participants are most likely to be techie insiders of sorts, thus inclined to find Zuckerberg’s clickstream more interesting than what the general population might choose.

We hypothesize that if everyone had access to Google Plus — and used it — the most followed users would include Lady Gaga, Eminem, Justin Bieber, plus numerous athletes, religious figures and politicians.

Readers, who would you follow on Google Plus if everyone were able to use the product?
