Google is always a giant. Not only in search engine, but also in the tech world. It is simply unstoppable. At least the current record of financial figures of Google Inc. says so. In this quarter in UK alone revenues has reached a massive $1.05 billion.
In all the products and services, Google is making gain after gain, and not to forget, it is still on the top spot among search engines.
Out of all, the most impressive gain of the company is its strong entry in the social media market after the likes of Orkut and Google Buzz. It seems Google had always wanted to venture this field, but never could quite make it. The third quarter financial figures suggest that the giant is actually making early headway now in the social networking scene.
The Google+ social product, is taking off like a rocket after it was recently made available for public. Earlier, it was on beta phase and invite only. According to recent figures, the users base is now 40 million, though still under half of Facebook strength, but it achieved this milestone in the shortest ever period. One thing is sure, if it grows at this speed, Facebook would find it as its rival.
The Q3 report also revealed the company’s new hiring is 2585, which shows it is growing at an incredible speed. Moreover, the mobile OS Android of Google is also taking a northward graph in popularity quarter after quarter. Another big factor of its growth is its increased revenue by 33 percent compared to the third quarter of 2010.
Just imagine, if Google commands over the social networking numbers what Facebook has now, how much power Google will have over the Internet.
