Google+

Google CEO Larry Page just dropped a few numbers on the new Google+ social network, which technically is still in a semi-private beta.

"The Growth on Google+ has been great," Page said during Thursday's second-quarter earnings call. He explained:

  • More than 10 million people on Google+
  • More than 1 billion items shared and received in a single day.
  • The +1 button is being served more than 2.3 billion times a day.

Still a way to go to hit Facebook's 750 million members. But for private beta, that ain't too shabby.

I'm so special..I'm one in 10 million

cwilson617 says:

You're doing better than me! I'm not even in yet. No one is known is even aware of it. How sad is that!?

El Jefe says:

Why don't you go to the one of the multiple threads in the forum & ask for one?

El Jefe says:

I must be lame. I am only 1 of 3 people I know who is on Google+. My "Circles" are looking pretty empty. LOL!

You only know 3 people, and you're one of those 3?

El Jefe says:

Yeah, I only know 3 people who are on Google+, myself & 2 others.

Do you not know who you are, Mark_in_Tulsa? :-)

I keep forgetting.

cwilson617 says:

A million members, that many transactions and it's still not ready? I suspect that by leaving it exclusive, Google can get their target audience to perceive that it is something better than Facebook. If that catches fire, they'll hit 750 million in no time.

ButcherChop says:

Really? Doesn't matter if they have 100 million. It's in BETA for a reason. For people to want to jump into a service while stilli n BETA says a lot. My circles (friends) have gone from 3 people in Week 1 to 80 now. And I get dropped into circles by people from my Facebook all the time, I just don't add them to mine. Its booming for the moment.

Still waiting for an invite

JerzieBarbie says:

The app is in the market now as if I could use it, but when I tried it told me that i need an invite and even if i had an invite, its exceeded its capacity

El Jefe says:

Keep trying on their website. I got in the same night I got my invite. It seems to let people in in small waves. If you refresh it a few times, possibly the later @ night the better, I'll bet you get in soon.

cdg341 says:

10 million!!!?? Wow I only have one person in my circle and nobody else I know, knows about google+ -_-

JoshUng says:

I have invites, but I don't so much free time at the moment to send them. If you want, tweet me @JoshUng with your email and I'll send one.

Or reply here, but I may not see it for awhile.

Mobius360 says:

If anyone wants to send me a direct message for an G+ invite, I will send you one tonight when I get home.

calihustle says:

I would appreciate an invite

cthunder says:

Hit me up when the beta phase is over.

msingley#AC says:

10 million members
2.3 billion "+1's" a day?

so on average everyone is hitting the +1 230 times per day? I don't think so...

haha faulty math if you ask me

I was +1(ing) my google search results before I got into the actual program.

El Jefe says:

You do realize that ANYONE who uses Google (not just people on Google+) can "+1" something, right?

acculver says:

YEAH I'm a Google Number

HackNet says:

I thought the whole G+ was a bit hyped up by bloggers and press. But, ever since I got an invitation and actually started using it, I can honestly say that facebook will soon meet the WRATH OF GOOGLE! :)

Karlzweb says:

If you have any more invites... Please!

tianfu22 says:

I got an invite but it won't let me in because i'm too young. Alas the problem with being a 15 year old in the tech world, You don't exist yet.

jelly roll says:

I feel your pain, I'm 12 ;-(

Magellan says:

Only with Google are "Private" and 10 Million used together.

flash4yish says:

Invited 3 prior PPL, hope it goes through...

Seems to work best if you open the invite on your computer first, that was my experience.

Karlzweb says:

Thanks if it was you who sent me the invite. if not, thanks to who sent it!

flash4yish says:

Yep, I got the 4 folks from the posts from July 14, 2011 - 21:00.

As I wrote. It works best if you accept the reply via your computer first, then set it up on the mobile device.

Cheers!

Nice!!!

jmk261 says:

One of the biggest gripes I have with Facebook, and now have with Google+, is the inability to edit your own profile from your mobile application. Unless I'm missing something, I would think by now a feature like that would be standard.

Dankest says:

I agree...first used the mobile app...then the desktop...major difference

draken says:

Make sure you use the menu in the mobile app to send feedback so they know what features users want. Also, they released an update to the app today which fixed an issue I had reported, so they seem to be pretty responsive to the feedback they are receiving.

sookster54 says:

It's great and surely will kill Facebook, but my "test" account has already been flooded with "... has added you to his/her circle" and the stream is a spamfest. Even RayWilliamJohnson (Youtuber) has a g+ account. My real account is going to be unsearchable and divided up with my family and friends and people I know, not random people like it is now.

draken says:

Their posts only go in your stream if you have them in a circle. If they have you in a circle and you don't, their posts show up in "Incoming" if it is a public post or a post to the circle they put you in. You can also mute posts, and block people.

jcorv58 says:

I still can't figure out how to invite anyone, I tried the circles trick but I don't see anywheree that I can add an email address....

its on your main page, Bottom Right a RED icon that says invite people to Google+

jcorv58 says:

Figured it out, thanks though,fFound out you can't do it from the app.

If people still need a Google+ Invite. Please email your Email

@ anthonygpinheiro@gmail.com

I will send you a invite as soon as possible.

Thanks Anthony
