On July 14, 2011, Google announced that Google+ had reached 10 million users just two weeks after it was launched in a "limited" trial
phase.After 4 weeks,it had reached 25 million unique visitors.

on September 20, 2011 Google+ was opened to everyone without the need of invitation.After Google+ went public, users registered to Google with an age under 18 will be unable to sign up for Google+.A survey estimates 13% of U.S. adults have joined Google+ and is projected to have 22% of U.S. adults in a year.

The introduction of Google Plus has an impact on the design of Google's web search service, due to the graphical redesign.

Google Plus, the social networking service that has long been in a restricted field test, is now officially in beta. That's right, folks, you can stop ...

Google Plus’s controversial identity policy requires all users to use their “real names”. Commentators have pointed to problems with this, including the implausibility of Google being able to determine correctly which names are real and which ones are fake. Other problems include the absurdity of Google’s demand for scans of government ID to accomplish this task and the fractal implausibility of Google being able to discern real from fake in all forms of government ID.

Google Plus is more flexible – spy phone Google did what Google does best, they studied the concept and made it better. The things I like about Facebook are all there, but tweaked just a little to make them easier to use.
