Google+ API is now available for developers

Vic Gundotra, the man behind Google+ released the news just yesterday. He said in the blog post,

“For the past 12 weeks we’ve been in field trial, and during that time we’ve listened and learned a great deal. We’re nowhere near done, but with the improvements we’ve made so far we’re ready to move from field trial to beta, and introduce our 100th feature: open signups. This way anyone can visit google.com/+, join the project and connect with the people they care about.”

Some of the recently introduced features also include:

Google+ hangouts for Android

According to stats conducted at the TheNextWeb, Google+ gained 10 million followers in just 16 days. The social network attracted far more people as compared to Twitter’s 780 days and Facebook’s a whopping 852 days.
