Google Plus is Already a Solid Hit

Not even two weeks out of the gate and in closed beta to boot, Google Plus is going like gangbusters. Estimates on the number of users already signed up by invitation run from a conservative one million to a high of five million. Whatever the true number, it has been designated a great success, even with a few small glitches along the way.

Paul Allen, founder of, a leading genealogy site, suggests, based on his research that G+ may already be closing in on 5-million users. By his preliminary calculations, Allen thinks in G+’s first full week the new social network is growing at a rate of 280%.
