There’s no point in hiding the fact that Facebook, with over 500 million active users worldwide, is the undisputed largest social networking site today, but Google+ remains determined to catch up with its main rival.
Google+, the social networking project from online advertising and search giant Google, is currently experiencing a stable growth with over 61 million visits in March of this year.
That figure is 27 percent more than earlier months, and with Google co-founder and CEO Larry Page saying Google+ has 100 million active users, the social networking site has developed a good deal after launching in June of last year.
Even so, Page did not elaborate on his definition of “active users”, with analyst powerhouse comScore placing his words under scrutiny by releasing data that shows Google+ users only spent an average of 3.3 minutes on the social network for January 2012, as opposed to 7.5 hours on average for Facebook users over the same period.
Regardless, according to Experian Hitwise, Google+ is growing steadily based on its recent graphic information.
