Google+ reaches 90 million mark
Fledging social network Google+ has amassed a 90 million strong user base, according to CEO Larry Page.
Page, who issued a press release regarding Google's fourth quarter, was understandably delighted with the growth of the network, alongside other Google services like Android.
"I am super excited about the growth of Android, Gmail and Google+, which now has 90 million users globally - well over double what I announced just three months ago," claims Page, cited by Arstechnica.
Social media marketing professionals will be interested to hear that the fledging network continues to grow at a rapid rate as it provides another outlet for business-related social media content.
However, it still has quite a way to go reach Facebook's 800 million base - that's not even taking into account any potential growth from Facebook either.
Nonetheless, Page seems overwhelmed by the user base figures for Google+ and is looking forward to what the future brings, especially after the recent announcement of new feature 'Search, plus Your World'.
"By building a meaningful relationship with our users through Google+ we will create amazing experiences across our services. I'm very excited about what we can do in 2012 - there are tremendous opportunities to help users and grow our business," he added, cited by Mashable.
