It’s Official: Google+ Has Over 10 Million Users, 1 Billion Shares Per Day

Google+ now has more than 10 million users, sharing over 1 billion items (photos, video and status updates) per day, Google’s CEO Larry Page has announced at this quarter’s earnings call, that took place earlier today. This figure is expected to cross 20 million by the end of this week.

Page also commended the new management structure he implemented as Google makes highest profit ever of $9.03 billion for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, which is a 32% increase over the last quarter.

It’s working together fabulously, and helping complete Google’s goal of making sharing on web like sharing in real life. I’m super excited about the amazing response to Google+.

The most popular feature of Google+ so far, is Circles which allows users to organize their contacts — similar to a “list” on Facebook. For more official statistics, check out Larry Page’s post on Google+ here.

In case you don’t know, Google+ is still a baby in the social networking world — launched only 2 weeks ago. Putting these numbers into perspective, Google+ has already acquired 1.3 percent of Facebook’s 750 million users in this short period of time. This is an impressive feat for an invite-only service, as Google+ is still not open to public at large.

With this growth rate, will it be enough to overtake Facebook? Let us know in comments.
