Is this for real, Mark Zuckerberg on Google+  I suppose it pays to keep tabs on the competition. I wonder if Larry and Sergey are on Facebook?

Mark Zuckerberg On Google Plus

It’s been reported that then new  social network has grown30 percent between September 20 and 22. Since Google has invited everyone to join. With a big blue arrow on their home page, Google has racked up an impressive number of new sign ups.

Paul Allen, from Ancestry.com reported  his latest user count estimates, in a post on Google+

  • On September 9, Google+ had 28.7 million users.
  • By September 22, this had risen to 37.8 million, with most of the growth in the previous two days.
  • Allen adds a “fudge factor” to account for private profiles and non-Roman surnames and finalizes his estimation at 43.4 million Google+ Users.

On the first day Google+ opened to the public they saw 3.58 million visitors from the U.S. alone, according to Experian Hitwise. While it’s a huge increase from their previous daily high of 321,000 U.S. Web visits, Facebook had over 50 times more visits that day. The Zuck shouldn’t be too worried yet.

They still have a way to go to catch Facebook, with an estimated 800,000 users. In the meantime Zuckerberg Google + Circle is growing (currently over 500,000).
