Google+ Hits 100 Million Monthly Users
The tech world has been so focused on Apple and Facebook’s latest troubles that many it seems have forgotten the small matter of Google+, Google’s answer to Facebook.
That ‘small matter’ is now a thriving entity and Google announced recently that the social network has just surpassed the 100 million monthly users mark. The new number is significant, not least because it shows that Google+ is far from being the ghost town many are suggesting it is. 100 million people is a lot of people and the time it took for Google+ to get there is right up there with the likes of Facebook and others.
Google’s announcement gives solid evidence that the social network is attracting users and keeping them engaged. It was only June of this year that Google announced the milestone of 250 million registered users; the fact that in just a few months another 150 million registered users have been added is quite impressive.
The “what next” for Google+ seems to be the inclusion of more robust sharing features and Google has acquired Nik Software to further this endeavor. The next few months will be a good test of integration and growth; Facebook seems to be floundering and with Google having so many pieces it can use to boost engagement on Google+, I wouldn’t be surprised if things got really interesting between the two competitors.
