Whether you’re a critic or a fanboy (or girl), there’s no denying that Google+ is growing at a record pace. Based on last weeks announcement that they hit the 90 million user mark, it looks like they’re set to hit 100 million users in no time!
You may have seen the infographic that compared how quickly Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ reached a user base of 25 million. It gave a great visual of just how quickly Google’s new social network grew in it’s initial launch compared to the other networks. But, we here at GPlusTuts have a new infographic for you:
Now that Google+ has passed 90 million users, I decided to create an infographic that showed the timeline of how long it took the major networks to reach 100 million users. Now, being that Google+ has yet to officially reach 100 million users, this can only be a projection of what could happen. However, I’m confident it will be pretty spot-on.

The data represented is merely an approximate representation of what I think will come to be. If Google ends up conquering the entire world, I hope they’ll remember that I predicted it, and in turn show me favor.
On a more serious note, I understand that it is not a great comparison to make. Facebook was unknown when it started, and ended up changing the way the world uses the internet. Twitter was also non-existant in any form before it launched. Whereas Google was already an industry leader (in multiple industries at that). They already had a huge user base for their countless other projects. So, it’s true that we’re not exactly comparing apples to apples.
Still, it is fun to take a look at the timeline and speculate where things will go. I believe that Google+ will become the social networking industry leader. That is, unless Facebook or Twitter can in some way radically change the game.
