20 Million Unique Visitors in 3 Weeks for Google+
ComScore Inc. has reported that fledgling social networking platform Google+ has acquired over 20 million unique visitors in its first three weeks (June 29, 2011 – July 19, 2011). This is an impressive increase of 82% from the previous week and 561% vs. two weeks prior.
Google’s new social product Google+ has enjoyed a positive initial market response. Users have praised the design, usability and approach to group networking with Circles.
Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised at the popularity of what may be the fastest ever growing site as Google has an existing visitor base of more than 1 billion to work with. Although access to Google+ is by invitation only by current members in much the same fashion that Google launched Gmail by invitation years ago, there is clearly huge potential to convert a high number of users to its new social tool.
