Google+, the tech giant’s answer to a social network, is doing very well and according to Larry Page, CEO, extremely good. Today, Google had its earnings call for the fourth quarter of 2011.
Google Plus aside, the company did very well with full revenue up 29% for the year and quarterly revenue shooting past $10 Billion for the first time ever. Anyways, back to the social network…
“I’m also pleased to announce that there are over 90M Google+ users — well over double what I announced just a quarter ago on our earnings call. Engagement on + is also growing tremendously. I have some amazing data to share there for the first time: +users are very engaged with our products — over 60% of them engage daily, and over 80% weekly.”
One of Larry’s priorities after becoming CEO was to improve velocity and execution at the company. With Google+, they’ve managed to keep at releasing a new update every single day since launch, more than 200 updates total thus far.
The company is very focused on making the social network a great place for people to spend their time on.
“But as I said last quarter, Google+ is about much more than the individual features themselves. It’s also about building a meaningful relationship with users so that we can dramatically improve the services we offer. Understanding who people are, what they care about, and the other people that matter to them is crucial if we are to give users what they need, when they need it.”
