Photographers Flocking to Google+

PhotographerMy observation has been that a lot of people that have added me to their circles are photographers. I’m curious to know what percentage of Google+ users are claiming photography as their job? I am not a photographer, so I am also puzzled why so many of them want to follow me?

Based on my own educated guess, I can presume that photographers may be rushing to Google+ because of the photo gallery capability. In comparison to Facebook

  • Managing your photos is easier – using Picasa, even for amateur photographers.
  • The photo viewer in Google+ is more attractive to photographers, especially after Facebook went to that unusable photo viewer.

If any one has any statistics or information on this phenomenon, please share!
