If you thought Google+ was a joke, think again: Unofficially, it’s broken through the 100 million users, according to Paul Allen, the unofficial Google+ numbers’ guru, in a WebProNews.com report.
By Allen’s estimates, the site has grown by leaps and bounds, more than 10% since Jan. 19.
Meanwhile, Allen wrote:
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.
About two weeks ago, Google’s own Larry Page announced that Google+ had reached 90 million users, with 60% “engaging” daily and 80% weekly. No matter the numbers, you can ‘t deny Google+’s impact on content marketers Allen predicts it will soon have 400+users.
This just creates a bigger avenue with which to share content.
