It is hard to believe that a man is telling the truth when you know that you would lie if you were in his place - H.L. Mencken
SOCIAL NETWORK Google+ has managed to rack up 400 million users, according to Google SVP Vic Gundotra.
Gundotra revealed the numbers in a blog post at Google+, adding that around a quarter of those users are active.
In a post he sounded impressed at the number of users and the short time it has taken Google to accrue them.
The service opened up to the public only last year and if you had asked us we would have thought that it was more tumbleweeds than real people. Not so though.
"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 numbers include both the online web based and mobile app versions, he added. µ
