Google+ crosses 20mn users in 3 weeks

social media Updated: Aug 12, 2011 12:14 IST

Search giant Google’s new social networking site has drawn 20 million users around the world, figures have revealed. Earlier it was announced that Google+ had signed up its 10 millionth member, during the company's quarter 2 results call.

Now, new figures from online measurement company Comscore, revealed that approximately 870,000 people in the UK have signed up to the invitation-only service so far, and the service has added around 10 million new users in a week.

The number of users rose to 19.93 million during June 29 and July 19, the Telegraph reports. Despite some criticisms, Google’s social network has been well received since its launch a few weeks ago.

Google+, however, remains some way behind its social networking rivals.

Twitter has more than 300 million users and Facebook announced two weeks ago that it has 750 million users.
