"I've never seen anything grow this quickly," said Andrew Lipsman, vice president of industry analysis at comScore. The only other site that has accumulated as many new visitors in a short period of time is Twitter in 2009, he said, "but that happened over several months."
...Of course, Google has a long way to go to reach the scale of Facebook Inc., which has more than 750 million users, and Twitter Inc., which has more than 200 million registered accounts...
...Google+ also has unique technology, such as a "hangouts" feature, that lets people do "video chats" using their computer webcams, speaking to numerous friends simultaneously. The company plans to include Google+ in its suite of online software for businesses...
Google's ability to group users is a decided advantage over Facebook. Whether it has legs, however, is an open question.
I joined the Google + at a friend's invitation the other day, I'm still trying to figure out how to use it, but I must admit I haven't tried very hard yet. Seems like another good way to promote my blog and other projects though, once I learn how to use it porperly. So far all I've done is give +1 to blog posts that I like which have the button for it. Unfortunately I do not know how to get a button on my own blog, and I don't see it here on yours either. I guess I'll just have to keep telling everyone to go visit Doug Ross because he's awesome the old fashioned way.
Are you on it yet?
I'm Zilla Stevenson there.
I hate all these popular social networking sites filled with narcissistic dopes. they won't ever get me on that ahole grid.
the more the herd baa's and flocks, the more I head the other way.
well, taking into account that MOST of these users were people who already had a gmail/google account...it doesn't surprise me. It's like saying that Google Calendar has reached 20 million users. I would like to see figures of NEW google accounts created just because of G+
Doug: As you know, I'm not a "narcissistic dope", butt I do play one on the intertubes, so I have +1'd you! Full disclosure, Zilla was my first +1.
I don't know much about +1 either, butt my tech support is efforting it. I was advised that there is a teeny script that you can add to your template to install the +1 on your site, butt Raj is currently busy upgrading TOTUS to help Big Guy "lead like a leader."
For now, I'll just follow the herd and +1 my favorites when I see them!
