Google+ may not be as big of a social platform as Facebook, but its’ numbers are impressive nonetheless. Following the acquisition announcement of Nik Software today, Google’s Vic Gundotra stated the following,
This week we also hit an important milestone–over 400,000,000 people have upgraded to Google+. It was only a year ago that we opened public sign-up, and we couldn’t have imagined that so many people would join in just 12 months. While Google+ is all about creating a better experience across Google, it’s also a destination. And here too, I’m happy to report that we have just crossed 100,000,000 monthly active users on Google+ (plus.google.com and mobile app).
So maybe there is room for Google+. After all, I’m thinking these guys have total different strategies and targets. Kudos Google!
