March brings 27% growth for Google+ with 61 million visits

It isn’t secret to anyone that Facebook, with its more than 500 million active users is the undisputed social network champion, but this doesn’t stop Google from trying to keep up. The search engine giant reports a steady growth, reaching 61 million visits for March.

That’s an impressive 27% more than previous months and with Larry Page claiming 100 million active users, Google+ has grown a great deal since its launch in June last year.

However, it’s unknown exactly how Page defines a user as “active”, since comScore put his words under scrutiny by releasing data, which shows that Google+ users spent just 3.3 minutes on the social network for January. If you think it’s not that bad, the average time users spend on Facebook is 7.5 hours for the same time. Yikes!

Regardless, Google+ is growing at a steady pace, according to the graphic above stating information from Experian Hitwise. Do you think Google+ has what it takes to eventually become as popular as Facebook or do you believe nothing can beat Zuckerberg’s creation?
