Google+ Reaches 100 Million Users
Google is a very popular web site and company on the world wide web. Many know it for the search engine services that it has. However, it offers many other features such as Google Docs, Google maps, and even its own social networking site, Google +. They are definitely keeping up with the times and the popularity of social networks in today’s day and age. Not only have they come up with their own social networking site but it is actually doing quite well. It has just been announced that they have reached over 100 million users. Here is some more information about this statistic and the success and growth of Google + thus far:
“Meanwhile, I think it’s noteworthy that Google+ membership has grown more than 10% since Jan. 19th when Larry Page announced 90 million users. I have them at 100.8 million users by the end of the day. They have been growing by more than 750,000 new users per day since the 19th, based on analysis of users with hundreds of different surnames. If that rate holds steady, Google+ will end the year with 345 million users. But as I have said before, Google has many dials and levers to use this year to increase signups and usage, including its Android 4.0 rollout. I stand by my prediction of at least 400 million users by the end of 2012.”- Paul Allen
This says a lot about how successful and popular Google + is. It will be interesting to see how Google continues to grow and if it can keep up with the other social networking sites of our time. It will also be interesting to see if these numbers are accurate or how much they are off if they are. Google is no doubt a popular and successful company, so either way I’m sure their social media site will grow and expand.
