Google Plus Membership Growth

Google+ still has a long way to go before the social network catches up to Facebook but recent numbers have proven once again that decent growth potential is being witnessed by the team at Google.

Experian Hitwise reported on Monday that the social network more than doubled it’s traffic in December. On their Twitter account the Experian team added:

“Google+ total US visits reach more than 49 million in Dec-11, biggest month to date & up 55% compared to Nov-11”

The company also announced that Google+ has experienced positive growth numbers for eight of the last nine weeks, a positive trend the company should be able to capitalize on in order to grow their base.

While Google has not commented on the size of their site founder Paul Allen has unofficially said the number is closer to 62 million users with 25% of the sites users signing up in December.

In comparison it took Facebook nearly 4 years to pass the 60 million user mark.

Do you think Google can halve the number of Facebook users before the end of 2012?
