Google+ keeps busting social media network records right out of the ballpark. ComScore announced today that Google reached 25 million users on July 24th. That’s just 27 days after their beta, invite only launch on June 28th.
According to the comscore data Google+ is growing at a rate of about 1 million users per day. If you’re wondering how that stacks up, it took Twitter 30 months to reach 25 million. It took a little less than two years for MySpace to get to 25 million. Facebook took three years to attract 25 million.

Both Google+ and Facebook offer place checkins as part of their social networks.
