Study: Google+ has similar user numbers to Twitter

Do you use Google+? How about Twitter? While the userbase may not overlap all the time, a new study shows the overall numbers might be about the same. According to the study, the number of Google+ users is nearly identical to that of Twitter.

While the stability of the regular Play Store releases are a perk, those using the alpha and beta builds do get a bit of an advance look. In this case it seems the alpha users are getting something called "Fave People."
