Google+
I'm convinced Google+ could have grown more if it didn't deliberately isolate itself by not having an API to post content. No one wants to post to multiple social networks. It's hardly a surprise that given a choice between Facebook and Google+, people when with the established player. An easy way to post to both Facebook and Google+ would have at least created the illusion of life at Google+.

Re: Google+
Completely agree. When I can easily post to more than one social network, I do, but if I have to do so separately, the "secondary" network usually gets abandoned.

Re: Google+
So true. Having no API at this point is just suicidal.

Not surprised
Although those numbers are higher than I'd have expected, I'm not surprised that Facebook is driving so much traffic. Several website owners that I'm on good terms with have been impressed by how much their businesses have grown after establishing a solid prescence on the site.
