Google Plus population around the world

Map courtesy of GPlusData

GPlusData, the resource for Google+ trends and statistics, recently released an interesting map showing the distribution of Google+ users around the world. The data is based on 145 million public profiles.

Countries with the most users include:

  • The United States – 5.6 million
  • India – 2.2 million
  • Brazil – 1.6 million
  • The United Kingdom – 613,000+
  • Indonesia – 581,000+
  • Italy – 426,000+
  • Germany – 386,000+
  • Spain – 385,000+
  • France – 341,000+
  • Turkey – 337,000+
  • Canada – 266,000+

You can see everything here.

The team has also published another map focusing on the number of users by online population. Apparently,  Iceland, Brazil, India, Tanzania, Namibia, Papua New Guinea, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Hungary, and Canada are going strong.

For a specific look at the United States, check out these maps.

Note that GPlusData adds 100,000 new public Google+ profiles to its database every day. So, we could see changes in the G+ population distribution pretty soon!

Thank you to GPlusData for allowing me to use their data!

    Hi Cendrine,
    I know it’s probably a mistake to keep comparing Google Plus to Facebook, but I’m kind of wondering how Facebook stacks up here. Are there similar distribution maps available and might they show us Facebook is strong in certain places where Google Plus is weak? I recall reading somewhere, for example, that Facebook’s growth within the U.S. has slowed. But I’m wondering about your opinion? Will Google Plus ever catch up? Or isn’t that really the point? I’m leaving this comment both on your blog and in the BizSugar community, so it would be great to get your take for the benefit of both sets of readers.

      Hello Heather,

      The numbers were released by an independent body, and not Google itself. I haven’t heard of anything similar about Facebook. But, since I don’t know everything, I might have missed it.

      Google+ is already at 343 million active users. Facebook was far from these numbers in its first two years.

      I think it is a mistake to continue comparing both platforms. They serve very different purposes.

      Thank you for stopping by!
