When I first tried out Google+, it was neat to see the “Google celebrities” on it — Vic Gundotra, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, etc. Now we’re starting to see some real celebrities, politicians and business leaders show up on there. Here are a few that have recently joined:
Mr. Twitter is giving it a shot. His interest (or eventual lack thereof) could be telling for a lot of users.
A potential Republican presidential candidate in 2012.
The founder of Dell Computers.
The Facebook founder, ironically one of the most popular Google+ users, though he hasn’t posted a single item yet.
You know who she is
As far as people can tell, those are real accounts. The problem is knowing for sure. Google would be wise to add some kind of “verified profile” system like Twitter has, to cut down on the fake accounts. It’s not a big problem now, but it could turn into one very quickly.
Also, you can now see a list of the “Top 100 most popular Google+ users“. It’s certainly not a popularity contest, but it’s interesting to see who is near the top.
