Google's new social network attracts 25 million users
Google’s new social network site, Google+, has attracted 25 million users – making it the fastest website to reach that audience size, comScore data shows.
Google+, launched in late June, had 25 million unique visitors as of July 24 and is growing at a rate of roughly one million visitors a day, comScore said.
In contrast, it took Facebook about three years to attract 25 million visitors, while Twitter took just over 30 months, according to comScore.
While the data shows Google’s latest attempt at breaking into social networking has started strongly, it may not mean the project is a long-term success. MySpace grew to 25 million unique visitors in less than two years - faster than Facebook or Twitter. However, it lost a lot of visitors in the past year, comScore data show.
The data showed that Google+ had more than six million unique visitors from the US and 3.6 million from India. Canada and the UK had around 1 million unique visitors each, Germany over 920,000 and Brazil just over 780,000. France and Taiwan each had around 500,000.
