The Google+ social network launched just over two weeks ago and is still in a beta invite-only period with a public opening rumored for early August. But in this short amount of time, the network has already amassed more than 10 million users, one of those being Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who has ironically become the most followed person on Google+.
Although it seems strange for Zuckerberg to be on a rivaling social platform, it also makes a lot of sense. You’ve got to check out what your competition is offering. According to a recent count and unofficial list compiled by Huffington Post Senior Editor Craig Kanalley, there are currently 62 Facebook employees on Google+ doing just that—scoping out the competition.
The list includes several Facebook executives, including Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg and Chief Technology Officer Bret Taylor. Although, it’s not completely verified that these are their actual accounts, a look at their circles and connections reveal that they are most likely legitimate.
