In recognition of its growing popularity, Google Plus has released its Google+ iPhone and iPad apps in 48 new countries and territories around the world. The service has 500 million registered users, of which 235 million are currently active.
Although the move from Google (expanding the app to new regions) represent just a small portion of the entire Google+ community, it’s surely helping in making the service both, global and mobile.
