The Google+ Growth

Last updated 7 years ago

While Facebook and Twitter have a large massive following, guess who has the all time record for the first to get 10 million users?  Google+. 

That's right; it took 16 days for Google+ to obtain 10 MILLION users.  How long did it take Google+ to reach 20 million users?  Scroll down for the answer...

Just a mere 24 days!

What has caused Google+ to gain such momentum among its users?  Well, let's see...

1) Google's brand - If you do not know who Google is by now, then you are one in millions somewhere out there).

2) Exclusivity - To become a Google+ user, you need to be invited.  With this initiative, Google has created its own inner circle of users that not only feel special, but of course want to share with their friends and family.

Considering Google's international presence, it is safe to assume that consumers worldwide have adopted Google+ as well.  comScore has determined the top 10 countries that use Google+ most frequently.  Can you guess how the world ranked?

Were you anywhere near close?

Are you surprised by the Google+ growth?  Are you a Google+ user?  Do you think Google will soon be the social networking leader?
