Google’s announcement of acquisation of Snapseed’s creator Nik software, the Senior Vice President of Engineering for Google, Vic Gundotra, announced a great feat acheived by Google+: 400 million registered users and 100 million monthly active users. He also quoted:
This week we also hit an important milestone–over 400,000,000 people have upgraded to Google+. It was only a year ago that we opened public sign-up, and we couldn’t have imagined that so many people would join in just 12 months. While Google+ is all about creating a better experience across Google, it’s also a destination. And here too, I’m happy to report that we have just crossed 100,000,000 monthly active users on Google+ (plus.google.com and mobile app).
Paul Allen Google+’s “unofficial statistician” predicted this milestone in January. In a posting titled “How Google+ Will Reach 400 Million Users In 2012? on Google+, he explained how Android, Chrome, YouTube, Google+ APIs and developers will help push the social network to the milestone before the end of the 2012 and here we are Google+ touching 400 million number.
Facebook has 955 million monthly active users and that’s what matters most for Facebook (as of June 30). Google+ must not be proud of 400 million number, but surely it has something to be proud of 100 million active users monthly and that’s what matters. Now that the numbers are out it is interesting to note that Google+ is one tenth the size of Facebook.
