Google+ Tops 25 Million Visitors In Its First Month

/u138055/google_plus_2.jpg" width="228" height="228" style="float: right;" />Haters been hating on Google+. Sure, maybe it's just the Goog's attempt to draw advertisee eyeballs from Facebook, and okay, the invite system kinda sucks, and yeah, sometimes it feels like you're talking to yourself in a big, empty room. Those are all perfectly valid complaints. But G+ brings a lot of new things to the table, and despite the naysayers, an unprecedented number of people have been lining up to give the service a whirl. We're only one month in to the Google+ experience and 25 million visitors have already tested the waters.

The number comes courtesy of comScore, an authority in all things Internet traffic-related. By comparison, Facebook took three years and Twitter took 30 months to reach the big 25 mil (That's visitors, not users, just to be clear). Reuters reports the number's growing by an additional million each and every day, too. The US tops the list with 6 million people having checked out G+, while India is second with 3.6m visitors.

The rapid growth may not be a good thing, comScore VP Andrew Lipsman told the LA Times during a conference call. Remember that haters hating thing? Lipsman says that Facebook saw the most stable growth of any of the social media services thanks to its slow start and deliberate pace of expansion – a theory that Google obviously doesn't agree with.
