Google+ Users May Hit 20 Million In a Few More Days [pcworld.com]
Most critics believe Google+ is gaining popularity online, but at least one study figures Google's latest social experiment is growing at rates that rival Facebook's. The search giant's two-week-old social network, currently in a limited field test, reportedly grew by 350 percent between July 4 and July 10 from 1.7 million users to 7.3 million. Google+ is also set to hit 10 million by Tuesday and 20 million by the weekend, according to one study.


Those growth numbers assume that Google won't restrict users from inviting their friends this week, as Google did the week prior.

These little buttons are getting everywhere now.

It's worth considering how much more 'social' this gives Google, on top of all the other methods they're using via 3rd party tracking, serp click throughs/click backs et al.

I had doubted G+ since Day 1 but this could really work. You'd be surprised how many people who use Facebook and hate it, but stick with it only because everyone else is on it.

I am now trying Google+

So far I think its better designed than Facebook because it is built around "circles" - categories of people such as "friends", "family", "acquiantances" (the built in ones - you can add more).

It does not have the critical mass the Facebook has.

The question is whether Facebook is annoying enough to make me tell Google even more about me than they already know.
