Google+ now live and running with ten million users in two weeks

In the two weeks since it launched, Google+ is closing in on its first major milestone, the ten millionth user. The news was published in a post by Paul Allen, the founder of (not related in any way to Microsoft’s co-founder wrote this morning:
My surname-based analysis shows that the number of Google+ users worldwide reached 7.3 million yesterday (July 10) – up from 1.7 million users on July 4th. That is a 350 percent increase in six days. The userbase is growing so quickly that it is challenging for me to keep up, since the number of users of any given surname (even the rare ones I am tracking) seems to be climbing every day. More impressive than last week’s growth is the astonishing growth in users from yesterday at mid-day to tonight — a 30% jump. My latest estimate tonight shows approximately 9.5 million users. This suggests that 2.2 million people have joined Google+ in the past 32-34 hours. I project that Google will easily pass 10 million users tomorrow and could reach 20 million user by this coming weekend if they keep the Invite Button available. As one G+ user put it, it is easy to underestimate the power of exponential growth.

Chat & Hangout: Facebook Challenges Google Plus

he other day, Facebook announced it is going to include a video chat so that friends can chat online. Facebook says this is an improvement over Skype, because you don’t have to download Facebook apps to do this, while Skype you do. OK, that is fine. However, this comes a bit late since Google has already offered something far superior to this on its new social network Google Plus. This feature is called the hangout. So, you can hang out with a bunch of people with full audio and visual/video support. Being an invited member of the current beta to test out Google + has been a great experience thus far and I tried out the hangout both two nights ago and last night and it is really cool. There are no glitches, however sometime the video streaming can get blocked for a few seconds then it picks up again. All in all, Google has won the race to getting multiple video chats running in their application called hangout. Hopefully Google Plus (+) will become available to the general public soon. Then everyone can chat with colleagues, friends, family membes, etc. using this resource. This will become a great resource for veterans overseas to chat with all family members who might live in different states, for example. This will also become a great resource for teachers who might have students in different locations. Google once again rocks the house with Plus and Hangout!


It is widely thought that primitive man may have used slogan-like utterances to communicate the value proposition of an idea, such as the inventor of the wheel who grunted to a skeptical audience: “It’s round. It rolls. Any questions?”

The parallel development of commercial advertising and modern psychology in the late 19th century witnessed the ascendancy of the slogan, which soon became the accepted method of branding everything from soup to nuts.

Since the advent of commercial television, corporate taglines, ad slogans, and jingles have been fighting the front-line battle to penetrate our minds, win our hearts, and open our wallets. Do these so-called brand-bites exercise a profound influence on our language, media, and culture? In a word, yes!

The following is a list of more than 400 nominated slogans and jingles from which the most influential were ranked in TaglineGuru’s Slogan & Jingle Survey.
