Google+ Now Has More Than 500 Million Members

Google+ Now Has More Than 500 Million Members.

Google’s social network Google+ has passed 500 million members, the company revealed in a blog post Thursday. Of these users, 135 million are said to be actively visiting the social network each month.

Google previously announced that it passed 400 million Google+ members in mid-September and had more than 100 million monthly active users at the time. This suggests that about 100 million users have upgraded to the social network in less than three months and the network’s monthly active user base has grown by about 35 million.

In the blog post announcing the new numbers, Google’s SVP of engineering Vic Gundotra described Google+ as “the fastest growing network thingy ever.”

The user numbers for Google+ have always been a bit difficult to parse. Google measures its monthly active users in two ways: the total number of registered users who engage with other Google properties like YouTube, Google Search and Google’s app store (which currently stands at 235 million users) and the number who specifically visit the Google+ website an app (which is the 135 million number.)

Google’s user growth is certainly impressive, though at 135 million monthly active users, the social network is still behind competitors like Facebook, which now has 1 billion monthly active users, and Twitter, which passed 140 million monthly active users in March.

The Secret To Great Marketing – Infographic

I recently wrote in my post The ROI of Marketing Automation that for most companies, the difference between “good ROI” and “amazing ROI” is in their ability to complement the out-of-the-box software with the right people, ideas, and best-practice processes.

Until recently, each company had to figure all this out on their own. And this prevented a lot of companies from adopting and being successful with marketing automation.

Until now.

You’re not alone

Today, thousands of companies have blazed the path to success. While this is useful in its own right, when combined with a marketing platform that enables sharing of best practices and pre-built programs, the result is a powerful network that simplifies the marketer’s world, surrounds them with other great marketers, and helps them get to the results they need faster.

We call this concept the Marketing Nation.

The Marketing Nation combines the ability to exchange best-practice programs with a robust community for sharing ideas, along with a growing army of consultants and experts, a broad ecosystem of verified partners, and thought leadership and knowledge from experts. In other words, it’s everything a company needs to go from “good” to “great” with their marketing automation investment.

Learn more about how the Marketing Nation does this by downloading our eBook, The Marketing Nation: How to Use the Power of the Network to Succeed.

Why a nation?

You may be wondering, why we do we call this the Marketing Nation? Well, the Wikipedia definition of Nation refers to a community of people who share a common language, culture, ethnicity, descent, or history.

In this definition, a nation has no physical borders. Instead, members of the Marketing Nation are marketers united around a common goal of shared success and empowerment.

Are you ready to join the Marketing Nation? Here are two great ways you can participate:

The secret agent’s guide to the Marketing Nation

OK, so the Marketing Nation isn’t really a secret. But we wanted to have some fun with the idea that the Marketing Nation brings together everything a company needs to drive their marketing platform success. Kind of like a secret agent’s toolkit.

Social Media: We Love And Hate Pinterest – Infographic

The Pinterest frenzy may have cooled, but millions of people are still buzzing about social media’s overnight sensation. Once the network reached 10 million users in February (in record time, we might add), buzz peaked with 119,000 social mentions, an increase of 373% over two months.

But a rush of new users meant Pinterest was under a microscope. According to this infographic by NetBase and SAP, people were quick to criticize the platform’s technical glitches and UI shortcomings. Others felt that connecting Pinterest with Facebook delivered unwelcome “spam” from pin-happy users. The number-one thing that Pinterest users hate? Three-quarters believe that the social network is a gigantic time suck. But let’s be honest: That’s your own fault.

However, Pinterest isn’t all bad. After all, its beautiful interface has not only inspired you, but web design in general. The visual layout is all the better for amazing photos of food porn, the top-liked feature on Pinterest.

Do you have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest?
