Google+ Witnesses 30% Growth since Opening to the World

Last week, we reported that Google+ opens up to the World and now it is being said that the Google+ might have over 43 million users.

This has been reported by co-founder of Ancestry.com and unofficial Google+ statistician Paul Allen. According to him, Google+ has more than 43.4 million users of which about third of users joined Google+ since they announced its public availability.

Under the light of massive changes that Facebook had made in its social networking platform, Google+ – the fresh and shabby looking competitor was busy grabbing the record number of users quietly.

It is not the first time when Paul Allen claiming Google+ statistics. It was back in July when for the first time his numbers appeared to be exactly in line with what Google CEO Larry Page claimed before investors. In July Allen’s estimated numbers of Google+ users were 10 million and the Larry Page words confirmed it two days later in front of investors. Since then, he has been in calculating and estimating Google+ user numbers. He claimed that Google+ had 28.7 million users in start of September. This is something really encouraging for Google+ as this type of massive growth has not been seen until before the beta version was launched.

Allen explains:

The growth rate has skyrocketed to rates we only saw during the first week of its field test. Back when it had a small number of users to begin with.

A remarkable work has been done by Allen. If his statistics are right, then this 30% growth within days is no doubt a good sign for Google+. However, these are Allen’s personal calculations and there are no official reports from Google about the total number of users. One of Google spokesman while talking to a news agency said that we are not commenting on Allen’s figures, but the fact is company has not declared any statistics since July.

Although, Google refused to comment on Allen’s metrics, we are sure Facebook has a close eye on what Allen claimed.
