Google+ up to 90 million users, 60 percent log in daily
Google’s fledgling social network Google+ now has more than 90 million registered users, according to new information revealed by Google CEO Larry Page in the company’s fourth quarter earnings call.
According to Page, 60 percent of users log in to the network every day and 80 percent log in once a week. Although the company did not reveal any specifics about how social games are doing on Google+, the network has been slowly refining the platform for gaming, revamping the Games tab in December to highlight new games, top games and staff picks and gradually expanding its lineup of hand-picked games. The latest game to launch on the platform was Plarium’s Pirates: Tides of Fortune, which brought the network’s total game count to 36.
The new user numbers are actually significantly higher Google+ watchers had previously estimated, which pegged the social network’s total membership at 62 million users at the end of December. In October Google revealed Google+ had 40 million users, meaning the social network added more than 515,000 users every day over the past three months.
