Google+ Amasses 20 Million Members in Three Weeks

Google’s new social networking platform Google+ is on the verge of breaching the 20 million users mark merely three weeks after its launch.

Paul Allen, of Ancestry.com, who has been tracking the growth of Google+ members since its launch, informed that as of last Monday, there were 18 million users on Google+ and the number was increasing by 750,000 users every day.

This means that Google will be breaching the 20 million mark sometime this week. However, the rate of platform’s growth has slowed down over time as earlier one million people were joining Google+ every day.

“Google hasn't started marketing Google+ through any of its other channels yet. More than a billion people worldwide use Google products, including its top rated search engine, YouTube, and Blogger,” Allen said.

“Chairman Eric Schmidt says the vision is to integrate Circles and sharing with all the other Google properties. When that happens, you will likely see millions of people joining Google+ every day for some period of time,” he added, highlighting the massive growth potential for Google +.

Allen had been the one to dispel the notion that Google+ was a male dominated platform, proving that the number of female users was rising on a daily basis.
