Social network Google+
, which is just a bit more than two weeks old and still in its field trial, has gathered more than 10 million users.
That's the word from Google CEO Larry Page, who shared the official membership numbers for Google+ during the company's quarterly earnings call on Thursday afternoon.
At least one industry analyst called it an impressive start for the new social network, which could become a major player in the social networking world.
"Google+ is still only in field trial with limited access as we scale the system," Page said during yesterday's call. "However, the growth on Google+ has been great. And I'm excited to release some new metrics for you today. Over 10 million people have joined Google+. It's a great achievement for the team."
