A recent post on Mashable states that Google+ has now hit over 62 million users, and is growing at a rate of 625,000 per day! That is incredible!
There are many factors that could be playing into this. Google has been making some pretty aggressive pushes for the social network. Aside from their innovations in a social platform, they’ve also innovated the way they market the social platform! Here’s a great example:
This has been showing on television, Hulu, and on various sites across the net. It hasn’t become “viral” in any sense, but it is everywhere you turn.
All marketing efforts aside, it could just be that people are realizing more and more that Google+ is a superior social networking platform, and there are a plethora of attractive features that it offers. On top of that, Google has been consistantly releasing new features every couple of weeks to keep things fresh, and the platform evloving.
Although there are skeptics such as Experian Hitwise who pretend to have real insight into Google’s numbers (which they don’t) and try to downplay the growth of the social network. The problem with such critiques is that they are missing vast amounts of data– such as mobile users for example. If a so-called expert tries to downplay the growth of Google+, check their back pocket for a paycheck signed by Facebook.
