Google+, the latest attempt by Google to enter the social networking game, is off to a strong start in terms of search volume on the Google search engine, reported VentureBeat. This follows previous reports that the social network has amassed over 10 million users since its launch.
In fact, business incubator IdeaLab’s CEO Bill Gross is predicting that Google+ could reach 100 million users faster than any other service in history. Reception towards the social network in Asia has been quite strong too. Statistics from Find People on Plus show that 6 of the top 10 countries using Google+ are from Asia. Singapore is in 21st place.
For businesses looking to capture eyeballs on the Internet, Google+ is certainly a platform to watch out for. Some are already on the network, despite Google+ business profiles having not launched. An example would be MTV India (also see report).
But whether the social network would allow these profiles to continue existing, however, is an open question, since ITPro recently reported that Google+ has been deleting business profiles.
