Google released its Q4 report that it had exceeded $10 billion in revenue for the first time, showing continuous growth. Google’s Larry Page has also announced that Google+ now has 90 million users globally, doubling the number from three months ago. Page also said that G+ has a 60% ‘daily engagement’ rate. This came as a part of Google’s Q4 and fiscal year 2011 financial reports.
In Google’s press release, CEO Larry Page elaborated on the company’s success:
“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. 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.
