Google+ Growth Outpaces Twitter, Facebook by Lengths and Bounds

Thanks to a Google+ post by Leon Håland, you can see exactly by how much Google+ is outpacing its perceived competitors. In his post, Håland issued a chart that compares the growth of the three social networks, and let’s just say Google+ is doing quite well:

As you can see, it took both Twitter and Facebook over two years to get 10 million users. It took Google+ 16 days. Of course, Facebook’s initial “.edu addresses only” policy contributed mightily to their slower rate of growth. As for Twitter, admittedly, it was a slow burn, but now, its popularity cannot be denied. Nevertheless, neither can touch the expansion of Google+, invitation-only status or not.

Does this mean the social network domination of Google+ is inevitable? Considering there are over 700 million Facebook members, clearly, that part of the story has yet to be written, but it’s hard to argue with the growth of Google+, either.
