Google+: 3.4 Billion Photos In Past 100 Days, Pseudonyms To Be Allowed, and Google App Support Coming

Posted Oct 20, 2011

Google SVP of Social Vic Gundotra took the stage at the Web 2.0 Summit and announced several upcoming Google+ features and milestones. Gundotra said that over 3.4 billion photos have been shared on Google+ in the last 100 days. One of the reasons why tons of photos were added to Google+ at a fast pace is because they can be uploaded to Google+ directly from Android phones.

Gundotra said that Google+ will soon start supporting pseudonyms and other identity forms. Google+ required real names for users to be registered initially. Users were outraged when Google started suspending users for utilizing pseudonyms instead of their real names.

Gundotra also announced that Google+ will soon start supporting Google Apps accounts. The reason why Google+ did not support Google Apps originally because they though the company “would have more time.” But Google+ beat their expectations.
