June 28th, 2012 marks the 1st birthday of G+. In just a year, this toddler-aged social media site has seen some incredible growth! Google+ has reached 90 million registered users and over 1 million business pages. Even more impressive, 60% of those users use Google products everyday and over 80% of Google+ users use Google products every week. Google+ also had the fastest growth in users than any other social media website before, estimated to gain about 625,000 users per day. With these kind of numbers, Google+ landed the number 5 position on Hitwise’s “Top 10 Social Media Websites” – and it keeps on climbing.
We can expect even more exciting changes in the upcoming year for Google+, like the new Google+ Events (finally, a way to see photos from parties and other gatherings in real-time). Here at SADA Systems, we wish Google+ a happy first birthday and a successful second year – we can’t wait to see the new ways we might leverage Google+ for ourselves!
