It's no secret that Facebook CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg was one of the first to join Google+, nor did it take long for him to become the most popular person on the rival social network. The numbers aren't even close, and according to Google+ Statistics, Zuckerberg has more followers than Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin combined. For whatever reason, Zuckerberg abruptly chose to take himself out of public view, and just as abruptly made himself visible again, perhaps out of embarrassment or just plain apathy.
The Inquirer is taking credit for "shaming" Zuckerberg into making his profile public again after being the first to report he had changed his privacy settings in the first place, thus knocking him out of the Social Statistics rankings altogether.
"Zuckerberg has overnight reopened access to his Google+ account and is back at the top of the rankings," The Inquirer writes. "We can aonly assume he read our story, making the point that the chief collector of user data didn't like it when the tables were turned, and was shamed into changing his privacy settings."
Or perhaps he just doesn't care. In any event, Zuckerberg has regained his position as the most popular person on Google+ with nearly 185,000 followers and a mostly barren (public) profile.
