According to Ancestry.com founder Paul Allen, who posted his prediction on his Google+ page on Monday, July 11, 2011, there will be around 20 million Google+ users this coming weekend, or mid-July.

Allen, a namesake of Microsoft co-founder Paul Gardner Allen, predicted that there will be over 10 million Google+ users by Tuesday, July 12, 2011.

Allen also estimated that there were 7.3 million users last Sunday, with around 1.7 million users only last July 4, which is a 350% increase during the past six days.

However, Mr. Allen noted that the increase this week and in the coming weeks will be very much higher as compared to last week, which he said was based on surname analysis.

As of Monday night, there are around 9.5 million Google+ users based on Allen‘s estimation, which suggests that around 2.2 million people have joined Google+ in the past 32-34 hours.

Apparently, Allen said his estimates revealed a ratio of 1:2.12 for a US user as compared to non-US users, with his calculations having a 99% level of accuracy.

Google Plus was officially launched on June 28, 2011 with a limited invitation testing only and stopped a day after, and reportedly returned on the first week of July.

Among the notable features of Google Plus are Circles, Sparks and Hangouts, wherein the latter is group video chat with a maximum of 10 people.

Last July 6, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook has now 750 million users, and also launched its own video chat via Skype as well as a group chat option.
