How many people are publicly using Google Plus?

The answer is: somewhere between 4 and 6 million. This is a rough estimation (based on Google’s profile sitemaps) done by Edward Morbius.

I have visualized how the 2.2 billion Google+ profiles break down based on user activity:

How many people are actively using Google Plus? (data: Edward Morbius)

 

Edward’s findings are:

There are about 2.2 billion G+ profiles.

Of these, about 9% have any publicly-posted content.

Of those, about 37% have as their most recent activity are comments on YouTube videos, another 8% are profile photo changes.

Only 6% of active profiles have any post activity in 2015 (18 days so far).

Only about half of those, 3% of active profiles, are not YouTube posts.

That is, 0.2% – 0.3% of all G+ profiles, about 4-6 million users, have made public post in 2015.

You can find more on this analysis and the method he used in Edward’s Google+ post. There is one caveat: it does not include non-public posts or comments.

The graph is a Sankey Diagram and was made with SankeyMATIC.
