Google's social network has garnered its fair share of buzz, but not much has been known about the inner workings of the site and the people on it -- until now.

The world's largest search engine shed some light on Google+ this Thursday during its quarterly earnings announcement, proudly announcing that it had already amassed over 10 million users.


Google+ Users Around the World


The service has been online for just two weeks.

But other services, tapping into Google+, have become a treasure trove of analytical data, unveiling the networking in more detail than any other.

Males dominate the service, comprising over 73 percent of the Google+ social sphere, according to FindPeopleOnPlus. This contrasts to Facebook's gender split, which is for the most part split down the middle.

Not only are most users men, but those users are also from a very specific sliver of the job market: engineering.

Over 50 percent of users are engineers, developers, designers and software engineers, the demographic site said. The two most popular cities for users to live in are San Francisco and New York.


Google+ Users Are Engineers, Mostly

There are also some people who have become very popular in a short period of time.

The top users on Google+ have tens of thousands of followers now, according to Social Statistics, but the Facebook founder is perched atop of even Google founders, and it appears he's happy.

After disappearing for several days, Mark Zuckerberg reappeared on Google+ with a whopping 184,000 followers --  more than Larry Page and Sergey Brin combined.

The Facebook founder looked visibly happier this time around, replacing his dark, smile-less  photo that may have come from a cell phone web-cam, to a brighter, polished PR type of photo.

Page (second most followed at 94,000) and Brin (third most followed at 71,000) are the co-founders of Google.  Meanwhile, Google Senior Vice President Vic Gundotra, the man with all the information and updates on Google+, has only 47,000 followers (fourth most).

During the earnings announcement, Page said he was super excited about the response that the company's new social networking site Google+ has received.

As far as Google+'s unique audience, about 144,000 are overlapping with Twitter, and 105,000 are overlapping with Facebook, meaning the social-network has a substantial audience of its own accord.
