30,000 Google+ users in Zimbabwe
Published: 06 February 2012 (1307 Views)
According to a report by a Canadian company focusing on the social network's demographics, about 30 000 people in Zimbabwe are on Google's new social network. The global number of users on the platform is now estimated to have hit 90 million.

According to the website (PlusDemographics), their figures only represent data retrieved from public Google+ profiles.

According to the report, 77% of Zimbabweans on Google+ are male and only 21% users are female. Age wise, 46% of the users are between the ages of 18 and 24, followed by 36% users who fall into the 25-34 age range.

The majority of users in Zimbabwe are in Harare (72%) followed by Bulawayo which just has 14%, and then Mutare and Gweru with 3% each.

Strangely, the top alumni association of the Google plus users in Zimbabwe is the University of Cape Town. The second most popular alumni association in the report is Marist College. The rest is a list of foreign universities like University of Victoria, Monash University, Howard University and Havard.

The top employers list too has quite unexpected leaders. The top employer there is Kpmg, followed by student (18% of Zimbabwe users on the network are students) and third is the government.

Just to compare to other countries in the region; the country with the most users is South Africa with 466 000 Google+ profiles. Kenya has 94 000, Angola 16 000, Mozambique 15 000, Zambia 12 000, DRC 11 000 and Malawi 5,000.
