Google+ Now has more than 10 Million Users, Confirms Larry Page

By Swapnil Kale / July 18, 2011 / , Technology

Google’s new social networking platform, Google+, has been in the limelight of technology media since its arrival. Recently, Google CEO, Larry Page, confirmed during the company’s quarterly earning call that Google+ has pulled in more than 10 million users and over one billion items are shared by these users everyday.

Currently, Twitter has over 300 million users and Facebook is at more than 750 million users, and obviously both the platforms took some time to hit the 10 million mark. Obviously, they were too small compared to Google when they started.

Google earned $9.03 billion in revenue during its second quarter, showing a 32% increase over the same period in he previous month. Google-owned websites generated 69% percent of the total revenue ($6.23 billion), while Google’s AdSense generated 28% (2.48 billion). The CEO also mentioned that the average cost per click roughly increased by 12% year-over-year.

Google+ has got a positive response so far, although there have been some annoyances. The introduction of Circles and Hangout on Google+ has got a lot of praising, not just from users but also from the critics.

It is obvious that there is still a lot more coming to Google+ and we are quite excited to see how it grows.

    That’s really good achievement by Google+. Thanks for sharing such great
    information. We all know that currently Face book is the most popular social
    networking platform. But now steadily Google+ is also get new users by providing
    them excellent services for social networking. I think in future days, it will
    beat the Face book.

    Over the next few years as competition heats up among social networking sites such as Google+, Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin. Content, features, and services will be important but the two most important deciding factors will be Privacy, and the sharing of Ad Revenue.Privacy regardless of social and/or information is not as protected as most people think on social networking sites such as Google+ & Facebook.  If you have an email address or real name, there are companies today who are able to track this information.  Most search engines that crawl these sites are able to atleast get Jane Doe’s User Name.
     Both Google+, Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin have excellent privacy settings, and different ways to protect it’s users privacy, but both fail to address the real issues at hand.The real issues most people have today about privacy is the amount of information these sites are collecting about its users, the way this information is being collected, and how this information is being used.  One thing that social networking sites today don’t want to tell you, is that any site can be hacked!  The only way for sites to combat this problem is to not ask it’s users to provide their real names, and email addresses.As to the sharing of Ad Revenue, there is only one site today that allows it’s users to place their own Ads on both personal & business profiles.ONLYMEWORLD is less the 20% complete, and may not be as savvy as some of the other social networking sites, but early on seem to realize that Privacy and the sharing of Ad Revenue is paramount to both longevity & success in the industry.  Their platform is similiar to Facebook, Google+, Twitter, and Linkedin, yet differ because of their willingness to protect it’s users privacy, and the sharing of ad revenue.  The best part…It’s Absolutely Free!
