August 23, 2011 by Jenz514   Comments (0)

The company recently released “an updated visualization that breaks down Google Plus demographics including the month of August, now that the service has had some time to grow. This survey covered 10 million users, more than twice the size of the previous one, and some things haven’t changed.
