If there was one thing that was drummed into me during my corporate marketing career that “one dot on a chart does not a trend make” that said Tagged should be very concerned with their market share dropping by more than 50%. The social media marketing chit-chat during 2013 concerned the growth of Google+ as a challenger to the dominance of Facebook while they are not yet challenging Facebook it did increase it’s market share by 50% to 1.34% far of the heady heights of Facebook at 57.82% ( down from 61.5% in 2012).
