Google+ is getting close to 18 million users

Google+ nearing 18 million users

| Social Networking News | Posted: Jul 20, 2011 6:06 pm

Paul Allen's Google+ account has a new public post, saying that membership may pass 18 million today. Allen says that there have been 750,000 sign-ups on Monday alone which brings the total user base to nearly 18 million. Last week saw two days in which Google+ saw 2 million sign ups per day, but the exponential growth slowed to roughly 1 million new users a day. Keep in mind that this growth is all without Google actually marketing Google+ through any of its other channels such as Google search, YouTube or Blogger.

Google says when this happens, we should see millions of people joining Google+ on a daily basis for quite some time. Chairman Eric Schmidt says the vision Google have is to integrate Circles and sharing with all other Google properties. Google haven't started marketing Google+ because they're still trying to get the product "right." Google say they're paying attention to what customers are saying and responding quickly to try and improve the service.
