Britney Spears Is More Popular Than Larry Page In Google+

By Lisa Carlin

“Britney Spears passed Larry Page to be the most followed person on the service,” writes Danny Sullivan on searchengineland. Currently 7,39,527 people have Ms. Spears in Google+ Circles. Mr. Page has 7,39, 335 people, by contrast.

Where is Justin Bieber? His Google+ page is not verified, so we can not rattle off stats with certainty, plus Bieber (or the person impersonating him) does not reveal how many people have him in Circles. In Google+, that is.
