    Not sure how this compares to the first two weeks of Twitter or Facebook, but I have a feeling it's significantly higher.

    Google+ is Growing Like Crazy. Report Coming Monday. Probably More than 4.5 Million Users Already

    On Monday morning I plan to publish my latest research on how many Google+ users there are so far. My model is based on US Census Bureau data about how many people there are in the U.S. with each surname. I've described before the shortfalls of this model for calculating non-US users. But I haven't seen a better methodology from anyone else yet about estimating Google+ growth, so I'll continue to work on this one.

    I updated about 1/4 of my surname counts tonight, and am very surprised at how fast the userbase is growing. Here are some sample user counts by surname:

    Surname..................Monday .................... Saturday
    Maring ....................... 3 ................................ 9
    Tomczyk ................... 5 .............................. 20
    Lagana ..................... 7 ............................... 13
    Shireman .................. 2 ................................ 12
    Tat ............................ 12 .............................. 51
    Tozzi .......................... 15 ............................. 31
    Trudel ......................... 9 ............................... 25
    Yasin .......................... 25 ............................. 52
    Greb ........................... 3 .............................. 11
    Toepfer ....................... 3 .............................. 13
    Cullinane .................... 7 ............................... 18

    On Monday there were a large number of uncommon US surnames with no Google+ users by those names. Today, I'm finding very few US surnames with no Google+ users. For example, all of these surnames had 0 users by that name on Monday, but they all have multiple users with that name now:

    Fredenburg ......... 3
    Louderback ......... 4
    Santillanes .......... 3
    Murrey ................ 4
    Wilcoxen ............. 8
    Revelle ............... 5
    Parten ................ 3
    Lewter ................ 6
    McTigue ............. 9

    As I said, I'm only 1/4 through the updates, but preliminary calculations suggest that since Monday, Google+ users have grown by 2.8x, that is from 1.7 million to 4.7 million. Again, this is preliminary but by Monday morning I should have 4x as much data to improve the estimate.

    Google+ Tip for the day: Stop treating Google+ like Facebook.

    When I got my Google+ invitation, I was already itching to shed my Facebook profile. I still feel that way, but I’m starting to realize something really surprising (at least for me): I don’t think Google is my Facebook stand-in. I think Google is far more than a measly “social network,” and that’s why some of my Facebook friends who are migrating over right now seem to be, as they say on the Internet, “doing it wrong.”

    I've been a devoted Googlephile for many years, so if Google wanted me to use G+ instead of Facebook, it was gonna happen -- unless they really goofed it up, of course (I'm still not entirely over my breakup with Wave, Google -- but at least I've stopped leaving those creepy voicemails, right?). The push and pull factors were there. They were obvious: Facebook is for “moms” and spam robots -- Google was going to be my new social network.

    But something didn't feel quite right about treating my Google+ profile like my Facebook profile, nor treating my Circles like the Facebook social groups I wished I'd always had. There was content everywhere, written by people I’d heard of -- and many I hadn’t. Something about this space was very different than anything Facebook has ever allowed me to experience. It felt like something else, something... bigger, maybe more important. Something collaborative, perhaps. How very Google!

    My friends, however, don’t seem to be having the same Google+ experience I am. My tendency so far has been to add as many people with as many interesting views as possible to my Circles, and then to read voraciously and respond all over the place. Meanwhile, my real-life friends are complaining that there’s not enough content to appease them, and I’m the only one dominating their Streams. Why is this happening for them? I think it comes from a fundamental set of expectations about moving from Facebook to Google+. People are treating their Google+ accounts just like Facebook accounts. And I think that’s a doomed approach.

    Here is how I think Google+ can be most fully enjoyed and utilized, at this early stage:

    Think about what you use Facebook for. If it’s for keeping up with old friends and for keeping up with current, local friends, great. You can use Google+ for that, and it’s definitely got a leg up on Facebook for filtering content.

    Interact with content created by users you don’t know personally. If you don’t follow people you don’t already know, you’re going to get bored, and not just because your friends aren’t all here yet. You’ll get bored even after they’ve all arrived. Why do you think Facebook started implementing games and applications? Well, to make money, obviously, but what was the draw for the userbase? I’m willing to bet Facebook figured out that simply reading your friends’ thoughts all day long gets old, and let’s be honest: very few of us have enough friends with enough interesting posts to keep us engaged.

    If you like the social games on Facebook, well...you’re not really my target audience. Sorry. For the rest of you -- if you don’t like how Facebook allowed third party junk to start bombarding you with game requests and access to your information, embrace its absence here so far!

    I realize that at some point, developers may come up with cool ways to implement games on Google+, but I expect that Google will have learned from the clunky, disorganized, and downright invasive way developers approached this in Facebook. And the best way to keep Google+ rich in content and devoid of lame, invasive apps is to let go of your old ideas about what it means to be on a social network.

    So, some of you may know I'm an aspiring writer. I've been kicking around the idea to do a Kickstarter campaign soon and wanted some feedback if anyone is willing. Positive or negative. Feel free to ask questions here or on my blog. I haven't thought through this all the way, but was hoping to get feedback from anyone and everyone.

    I still have a few people over on Facebook (like most of my friends and family), so I use the Start G+ extension to post over there. Well, it logged out so I had to manually re-post my previous post (about Kickstarter). I now feel a little sick to my stomach.
    I haven't been consciously trying to do +Mike Elgan 's Google+ diet, but I guess it's coming naturally and just like any diet, when I went off it, it made me sick.

    I still have a few people over on Facebook (like most of my friends and family), so I use the Start G+ extension to post over there. Well, it logged out so I had to manually re-post my previous post (about Kickstarter). I now feel a little sick to my stomach.

    I know I saw a plugin with this ability, but this walks you through, step-by-step, enabling your search bar to search G+ posts and profiles with simple keywords. Until G+ itself enables post searches, this may be the most powerful tool to find interesting people to follow on here.

    This game has been around a while and I shared it on F@$3book, but you know how they are over there... ;) It's short. The game takes between a few seconds and 3-4 minutes. It's worth it, though. The payoff... play it twice or a couple times and do something different, then post back here and let me know what you did.

    I'll post what I did after a while. Don't read the comments until you play!

    Hey, Google+, I just had an idea. What about a Twitter-view for our stream? Maybe it could be called a "Trickle". The idea would be that we would see a small view of the post and none of the comments. Any posts under 144 characters (or therebouts) would show entirely, but you could click to expand, show photos, or even see comments.

    This would allow for a quick view, great for circles with thousands of people, great for quick glances, and awesome for not having to scroll down five screens for the comments inevitably made on any posts from +Mike Elgan, +Wil Wheaton, or +Christina Trapolino.

    So, I'm editing tonight. I love writing, but I'm ready to be done with this section. I hate when I figure out that a major rewrite of a section is necessary and will make the story far better. I need to convince myself that I'm wrong; sometimes being right sucks.

    Star Wars and MMO geeks!
    I just pre ordered two copies (one for myself and one for my wife) if you're a fan of either of the above, I recommend pre ordering. EA is sold out of the Collector's Edition already.

    Sorry to any of you not a fan, but I have no clue who is. Also, I've been geeking out and looking forward to this game for about 2.7 years, since they first announced it. Hopefully they'll announce the release date at Comic-con.
