Google+ already has 10 million users who share 1 billion items every day Confrimed By Google Plus.

Previous estimates by tech guru Paul Allen put Google’s magical 10,000,000 Google+ milestone falling this weekend. Being “unofficial” and all, critics called Allen’s estimate a tad too optimistic. But as it turns out Paul Allen was actually a little too conservative.

Google CEO Larry Page, speaking to analysts during Google’s second-quarter earnings conference call He confrimed Google+ already has 10 million users who share 1 billion items every day, and Google’s +1 button is being hit 2.3 billion times per day.

Today Google confirmed that Google+ officially saw its 10 millionth user sign up for the new social networking service and that Google+ is now serving over 1 billion shared items per day. For a social networking service that started at 0 public users a few short weeks ago, it’s nothing short of impressive It essentially equates to accumulating 13% of Facebook’s 750 million users in just two weeks.

In mobile news: Android’s locomotive continues along with Google now claiming over 550,000 new activations each and every day. If you recall, breaking the 500,000/day milestone came just two weeks ago.

Address Book Uploader coming to Google Plus.

Address Book Uploader coming to Google+

One of the most flexible tools is an address book uploader. so that Google Plus Users Can find their Buddies Easy and fast.

This was shared By Rohit Khare In his Blog post

Post Summary:

"We’ve been listening to feedback from our users who want more flexible ways to find their friends on Google+. One of the most flexible tools is an address book uploader, and I wanted to share the good news that it will be rolling out to everyone over the next few days.
Many email systems— and even some social networks — put users in charge of their own data by helping them export their contacts in the standard CSV or vCard formats.

One thing about our uploader is that we won’t mix your imported contacts up with all of your other Google Contacts. We only store the ones that you put into your Circles.
We’re hoping our new address book uploader helps users discover new ways to find their friends. As always, keep the feedback coming, and thanks for using Google+!"
