Google+ hits 90 million members: CEO

Google's social network has climbed from 40 million users as of last October to 90 million; the news was posted on Google+ by Larry Page, Google's CEO.

He shared the information as part of other news tied to Google's fourth-quarter earnings report. Google+ seems to be one of the tech giant's bright spots for that quarter, with revenue and earnings underperforming. Not Google+, though.

Not only are the number of users "well over double what I announced just a quarter ago," but "engagement" — how much and how often users are on Google+ — "is also growing tremendously," he said. More than 60 percent of users are on Google+ daily, and more than 80 percent weekly.

Page also said "With Google+, we’ve shipped on average a new feature every day since we launched in June. That’s more than 200 updates in total," including new features for Hangout, Circles and for business, +Pages.
