How many users on Google plus 1 have

Until a few months ago, there was widespread scepticism in the tech and investor community about Google’s ability to “get social.” Just last year, after the failure of Google Buzz and Google Wave, one of my favourite tech writers Pete Cashmore (Mashable) wrote: “All of which must have Mark Zuckerberg rubbing his hands together in glee. While Google is one of the few companies large enough to build a significant social network, Google Wave’s demise is further proof that these efforts (rumored to be called “Google Me”) are destined to fail. Like Wave, Google Me will likely be a work of technical wizardry too advanced for us mere mortals to understand. . . . [S]hort of a miracle — an acquisition of Facebook nemesis Twitter, perhaps — Google won’t become a socialite anytime soon.” Google+ likely crossed the 50 million user mark. And since being opened to the general public (over age 18) last week, Google+ has been growing by at least 4% per day, meaning that around 2 million new users have been signing up each day. I think that Pete’s unexpected miracle occurred and Google is now a socialite. In my mind there is no doubt of that. Given this momentum, it is hard for me to imagine a scenario where Google+ doesn’t end up with hundreds of millions of users. It’s just a matter of time. Google uses By integrating +1 and Circles (targeted sharing) and other Google+ functionality into its Chrome browser, Android phones (and tablets), Gmail, Google Reader, Blogger, Google Photos, and other properties, Google+ will give its more than one billion users repeated chances to sign up for and use the functionality of Google+. Like the Chrome commercials say, “The web is what you make of it.” And with Google+, you can make so much more of it than ever before. What Does This Mean For Facebook? None of this is necessarily bad news for Facebook. Competition can make companies much better. Facebook has improved its functionality in the past few weeks by implementing changes inspired by Google+ (lists, longer posts and comments, the subscribe feature, etc.) At the same time, they have leaped forward in other ways with new features like Timeline and by partnering with music and media companies. Take a look at Google Fourm if you need any help getting strated. Competition is great. Even though they have been fiercely competing for decades, Apple is worth $367 billion and Microsoft is worth $209 billion. Both have huge impact worldwide. Facebook vs. Google will be no different. Customers will benefit as these two innovative tech companies try to empower users with the best social tools. Some people will choose one social network over the other and will evangelize their choice. Others will use both to communicate with different groups of people. I think we are witnessing the most exciting battle in tech history as two well-funded, fast-growing, highly-profitable, genius-led Silicon Valley companies are competing from very different starting points to affect how we find information, how we connect with people, how we view the world, and how we spend our time. And unlike tech battles of the past which unfolded slowly as new hardware Take a look at Google Fourm if you need any help getting strated. http://www.googleforum.co.uk/
