They’re going to need a bigger Googleplex
CEO Larry Page, who doesn’t tend to get excited during earnings calls, uses an exclamation mark in his canned statement, and talks up Google+, his would-be Facebook-killer: “We had a great quarter. Revenue was up 33% year on year and our quarterly revenue was just short of $10 billion. Google+ is now open to everyone and we just passed the 40 million user mark. People are flocking into Google+ at an incredible rate and we are just getting started!”
Google is now up to an astonishing 31,353 employees, up from 23,331 a year ago.
