Late last month, Britney Spears knocked Larry Page off his hard-earned top spot on Google+, the social network of the company he co-founded and currently runs as CEO. Certainly, coming second to a former pop princess will be less of an ego blow than coming second to Mark Zuckerberg, as was the case for a long time this past summer. Zuckerberg, as the head of Facebook, represents Google’s undisputed rival in the fight for Web supremacy.
But most likely, Larry Page does not have an actual desire to be at the top of his company’s network — he undoubtedly knows that its full submersion in popular culture is a vital sign of life, and that’s why Britney’s success on Google+ represents better news for Page and Google, than it does for the famous blonde from Louisiana. Still, Britney’s team will likely take the Google+ ranking as a mini-godsend because I’ll though she consistently releases hit tracks, her reputation and brand have suffered over the years. To keep the momentum going, on Britney Spears’ home page, there’s a huge Google+ box asking readers to add Britney to their Circles.
Currently, the top five places on Google+ are occupied, in descending order, by Britney Spears, Larry Page, Snoop Dog, Tyra Banks, and Mark Zuckerberg.
