Google+, Google’s own social networking service, now boasts of over 90 million users. This is more than 100% the number of users on the social networking site just three months ago. This information was made available by Google’s CEO Larry Page, while announcing the company’s fourth quarter 2011 results.
According to the result, Google made $10.58 billion in revenue, the first time the company is exceeding the $10 billion mark in a quarter in its history. However, Google’s earnings fell short of analysts’ expectations leading to a 9% drop in the value of its shares on announcement of the results. Google earned $2.7 billion in the quarter.
Google+ user base grew from 40 million three months ago to 90 million, showing that the new social networking service is increasing in popularity fast. Google’s CEO also revealed that more than 60% of Google+ users use the product each day and more than 80% each week. Google has been adding new features over the past months to increase the user engagement on the social networking service.
Google has also been integrating its other services to Google+. Google recently launched Search plus Your World, which incorporates Google+ to its search results. Logged-in users can find recommendations and reviews by their friends when they search Google.
However, Google+ was not the only success story for Google, Android also shined. Google revealed that over 700,000 Android devices are activated daily. Also there are now 250 million Android devices in use and 11 billion apps have been downloaded from the Android Market.
