Google+ now has more than 400 million users, announces Google SVP Vic Gundotra.
The Googler unveiled the figures in a post on the search giant’s social network and added that about 25 percent of them are active users.
In the post, Gundotra seemed struck at the number of users Google managed to rack up in a very short time.
“This week we also hit an important milestone – over 400,000,000 people have upgraded to Google+. It was only a year ago that we opened public sign-up, and we couldn’t have imagined that so many people would join in just 12 months,” said Gundotra.
“While Google+ is all about creating a better experience across Google, it’s also a destination. And here too, I’m happy to report that we have just crossed 100,000,000 monthly active users on Google+.”
The Google+ service went public just last year and the numbers included both the online web base and mobile app versions.
