Can it topple Facebook? Google+ already has 25million users and is growing at a rate of one million every day

Google’s new social network has attracted 25million users in a little over one month, making it the fastest website to reach that audience size.

Since its launch in late June, Google+ has proved so popular that it is currently growing at a rate of one million visitors each day.

In contrast, it took Facebook about three years to attract 25million visitors, while Twitter took just over 30 months, according to analysts at comScore.

The U.S. had more than six million unique visitors to Google+, and India more than 3.6 million.

Britain and Canada had around one million unique visitors each, Germany over 920,000 and Brazil just over 780,000. France and Taiwan each had around 500,000.

But while Google’s latest attempt at breaking into social networking has started strongly, it may not mean the project is a long-term success.

MySpace grew to 25million unique visitors in less than two years – faster than Facebook or Twitter. But it has lost a lot of visitors in the past year.

Mobile app developers, however, clearly believe Google+ has what it takes.

A new quarterly survey by web development tool maker Appcelerator and market research firm IDC revealed that 68 per cent of 1,621 respondents think it can catch-up with Facebook, which has 750million users.

The reason given across the board is that Google has so many other areas – including its search engine, maps and YouTube – that it can work into its network.

Scott Schwarzhoff, spokesman for Appcelerator and one of the surveys co-authors, told Cnet: ‘Developers are constantly going back and forth on the current real market need and on what’s coming up.

‘Google+ poses an interesting opportunity that catches their eye.’
