As Google Opens Up Social Network, Rapid Growth Follows

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Google’s new social network site is seeing its user base increase significantly as Google opens the popular service up to more and more users.

In a posting on the social network, Paul Allen of FamilyLink says the social site has already passed seven million users and it’s expected to increase drastically in the near future.

Commenting on the matter, Allen stated, “I project that Google will easily pass 10 million users tomorrow and could reach 20 million user by this coming weekend if they keep the Invite Button available. As one G+ user put it, it is easy to underestimate the power of exponential growth.”

In the same posting, Allen said he bases his analysis by taking data from the US Census Bureau and comparing it with the popularity of surnames on the network.

Google+ launched around two weeks ago and is still in limited signup capacity, but signups for the social site have become less scarce lately.
