Google+ has surpassed a few hurdles in its quest to stay relevant. It is clearly
going to be bigger than Google Wave and Google Buzz. Google+ amazingly
already has over 25 million users and it clearly has Facebook’s attention.
Google+ should also have Twitter’s full attention, as many have switched from
posting updates on Twitter to now posting updates on Google+.
It surely will be interesting to see how it all plays out. If you are new
to Google+ – here below are 10 accounts you should consider adding to one of your
circles. I have focused on important Google+ users who post interesting things often.
Pete Cashmore – The founder of Mashable posts often with stories and opinions surrounding the field of social media. With over 100,000 followers already – this is one of the most popular Google+ accounts on the planet.
Kevin Rose – The founder of Digg and current Angel Investor adds helpful tidbits about Google+. And with over 100,000 followers – Kevin’s Google+ account is one with a lot of comments and interaction.

And with almost 300,000 users following his account – Larry’s Google+ profile is the most popular on the web.
