Updated February 23rd: Google+ hits 100 million users.
Google+ is a huge game changer for the social search industry. Growing at an astonishing rate of 625,000 Google+ subscribers per day, the social network is in line to surpass Facebook and Twitter to become the most widely used social network in the world. Google+ had reached the 90 million user mark in January of this year, according to Larry Page from Google, and by now has now broken through the 100 million user mark, sometime in February 2012. This was first reported by Paul Allen on Feb 1, 2012 and there has not yet been any official word from Google or Larry yet but we anticipate it will be officially announced in the coming days or weeks. Allen also predicts that Google+ will reach 400 million users by the end of the year. In comparison, Twitter currently has 500 million users and Facebook 700 million users. Why will Google+ do this so fast? In order to answer that, you have to ask yourself “do you know anybody over the age of 6 years old, that doesn’t use, or doesn’t know what Google is?
