Google+ Reaches 90 Million Users

Senior vice-president of social business for Google, Vic Gundotra has announced that Google+ has surpassed the massive 90 million users mark.

Gundotra posted a picture of a person holding a business card which read 'Google+ has over 90 million people'. Although Google themselves announced the massive number in last night's earnings report.

Gundotra followed up the picture writing:

"On behalf of the Google+ team, I wanted to thank you for using Google+. Four months ago, when we opened to the public, we were not sure what kind of reception we would receive. Your feedback has helped us build this service, and we can't thank you enough for your enthusiastic support.

"Anthropologist Margaret Mead said, 'Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has'.

"We deeply believe in the power of people. Google can be about pages and people, about information and individuals.

"This past quarter we began to simplify the Google experience. Gmail, Android, Chrome, Search, Ads, and YouTube are in the early stages of having deep support for your identity and your relationships. Expect us to deliver something truly beautiful. We've only just begun to work on that promise.

"With your continued support, we hope to delight you in 2012."

With established social networks like Facebook and Twitter announcing their 800 millionth and 400 millionth users respectively it seems that Google+ may soon be joining the heavyweights of social media considering the site has only been live for around eight months.
