Are Google+ Users Engaged?

Google+ has over 40 million users, and within the last 100 days they’ve uploaded 3.4 billion photographs to the social networking service, according to Vic Gundotra, Google’s SVP of social, at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco this past Wednesday.  While Mashable compares this to the 6 billion photos being added to Facebook every month (and 100 billion photos in the archives), it’s still a pretty impressive number, especially considering that Google+ only opened to the public on September 20.
