To be honest, we had forgotten about it.
But today, Google is dropping some big numbers about users and usage.
Google+ product boss Vic Gundotra says 400 million people have “upgraded to Google+”. (We assume that means signed up? Most people using Google services are forced to sign up for Google+.)
Of that, just 100 million people are monthly active users on Google+’s site and its mobile app, says Gundotra.
In the past, Google has been hammered for releasing non-specific numbers about Google+. This time, it seems like Google is giving real, fairly straight forward data.
Gundotra says, “I’m happy to report that we have just crossed 100,000,000 monthly active users on Google+ (plus.google.com and mobile app).”
Not a lot of wiggle room there. It looks like Google+ is becoming a destination.
