Google+ is now the second largest social network – right behind Facebook, and gaining – with 500 million members, 359 million of whom are active monthly, a 27% increase in the past three months.

Unlike standalone platforms like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, GooglePlus is integrated into every service Google offers: including Gmail, YouTube, Google Analytics, Blogger, Live Streaming, and more! Perhaps most importantly, GooglePlus is the backbone of Google Search, the world’s largest and most respected search engine.

I don’t know if you saw this quote recently from Larry Page, but I found it to be a huge wakeup call for agencies and brands.

“If you ignore Google+, Google search will ignore you.”

Pretty powerful stuff.
