Since inception Google+ user base has grown beyond marketers’ expectation. The latest Google+ statistics claims that its user base has touched the milestone of 90 million as well as near about 60 percent users’ login everyday while 80 percent users log in once in a week. However, company has not yet revealed any specific data about how social games are performing on Google+. Although, it had launched its game platform by revamping the game tab in December 2011.
“Google had a really strong quarter ending a great year. Full year revenue was up 29%, and our quarterly revenue blew past the $10 billion mark for the first time,” said Larry Page, CEO of Google. “I am super excited about the growth of Android, Gmail, and Google+, which now has 90 million users globally – well over double what I announced just three months ago. By building a meaningful relationship with our users through Google+ we will create amazing experiences across our services. I’m very excited about what we can do in 2012 – there are tremendous opportunities to help users and grow our business,” according to Google.
Interestingly, Google+ user base growth rate is comparatively higher than that of Facebook and Twitter. Google+ statistics reveals that it had already made record for reaching 50 million users base in just 2 months and 28 days compared to Facebook that took 36 months and Twitter 30 months to reach same landmark.
Surprisingly, Google+ has done it again by reaching 90 million milestone users base in record duration. Company has taken mere 7 months to touch the milestone of 90 million compared to Facebook 59 months and Twitter 44 months.
One should be surprised to know that percentage of users who login each day on Google+ is 60 percent which is comparatively higher that Facebook 50 percent. Whereas if we look at the overall number of users than Facebook is still much ahead than Google+ in terms of daily login. The main reason Google’s higher daily login percentage is it inter-connectivity with Gmail that is currently having more than 350 million active users.
Google+ user base has been doubled between Q3 and Q4 of 2011. In Q3 last year Google+ user base was 40 million compared to 90 million in Q4 of same year.
Google+ is growing at much more hype speed than Facebook and it’s expected to touch 300 million users base by year-end. Although, Google+ growth has beaten the forecast of Daren Herman who has predicted that Google+ will reach 85.2 million by February 1st.
I feel, if Google+ continues to grow in similar manner than its users’ base will touch the milestone of 150+ million users by March 2012. Apparently, by looking at the current growth one can say that Google+ may touch 350+ million users base by Q4 of 2012.
No wonder if we see some explosive engagement ratio of users with Google+ as many exciting features and new releases are just being introduced by Google in regular intervals. On the other hand, Facebook is slowly heading towards the saturation point where its finding difficult to offer anything new which can really excite people.
