Facebook and Twitter are not the only key players in social networking what with Google+ entering the scene.

In a cool graph assembled by Altibox’s Leon Haland, a Norwegian technology evangelist, it has been shown how Google+ has surpassed Facebook and Twitter in reaching the 10 million mark; in a relatively shorter time that is. Facebook, which spent its early days as a college-exclusive network, took 852 days, or nearly 2.5 years to reach 10 million users while it was a little less for Twitter—780 days, or just over two years. These popular networking sites now have 750 million and 200 million users respectively.

But this is nothing compared to the time taken by Google+ to reach the mark. It hasn’t been around for even one complete month, but it reached 10 million users in just 16 days which is less than 1/20th of a year. Currently boasting of about 20 million users, the number of its users is expected to hit 30 million by the end of the month.

Well, taking into consideration the fact that Google+ started with a solid base of Google Account users to draw from, you might say the comparison isn’t completely fair. But still, we can’t help but agree that it’s remarkable.
