Google Plus now has attracted 90 million users, reflecting the huge interest in the social networking site which was opened to the public on September 20. That more than doubles the 40 million that Google reported in October.
Google unveiled ‘Google Plus’ in late June as part of efforts to garner a share of the lucrative social networking space that has so far been dominated by Mark Zuckerberg–led Facebook.
Since launch, Google has added toolbars and other buttons on its websites to aggressively promote the service.
Meanwhile, the Google+ numbers weren’t the only impressive figures the company announced Thursday. Google also had its first $10 billion quarter, with $10.58 billion in revenues, and announced that 250 million Android devices are on the market, which is up 50 million from the last quarter.
