Google+ the fastest growing social network yet

Google+ is growing quickly, with unofficial stats from Experian Hitwise showing the site had 1.8 million total visits last week, and was the 42nd most-visited social networking site in the United States as of July 16. This likely will increase further when it opens to the public, USA Today reported today.

As of yesterday, the site has reached 18 million users, founder Paul Allen, formerly of Ancestry.com, announced on his Google+ profile yesterday, according to the Inquirer. This is up from 10 million estimated users on July 10.

Currently, the site’s users are from the “early adopters” crowd, with 57 percent of visitors for the four weeks ending July 16 being males, and the biggest age group being those 25 to 34, accounting for 38.7 percent of visits, the Experian data shows.

Top social media site and Google+ rival Facebook continues to draw in more women, especially those in the mothers category, but Google+ is expected to follow those trends when it matures, Forbes noted.
