Google+ hits 90m global users

60% of users active daily, 80% active weekly

Google's social network now has 90 million users worldwide in just four months since launch.

According to the company, as noted by "unofficial statistician" Paul Allen, 60 per cent of Google+ users are active on a daily basis, and 80 per cent active on a weekly basis.

During the quarter ended December 31, net profit at the company was $2.71 billion, with sales of $10.58 billion. Full year profits were $9.7 billion with sales of $37.9 billion.

"Google had a really strong quarter ending a great year. Full year revenue was up 29%, and our quarterly revenue blew past the $10 billion mark for the first time," commented Larry Page, Google CEO.

"I am super excited about the growth of Android, Gmail, and Google+, which now has 90 million users globally - well over double what I announced just three months ago. By building a meaningful relationship with our users through Google+ we will create amazing experiences across our services."
