Google has reported that one billion items are being shared on Google+ everyday. The company says that this is proof that users are not only signing up for the service but using it on a daily basis too.

Google's CEO Larry Page announced that Google+ had hit the 10 million mark at the company's second quarter earnings call. He also spoke of the new social networking service as being user friendly and said that it imitates the way humans interact.

Page said, "I'm super excited about the response to Google+, which lets you share just like in real life. We want to make products that everybody uses twice a day, like their toothbrush.  We certainly think about Plus that way, and just generally having a shared identity experience across Google and its products."

Page also announced that the +1 feature is being used close to 2.3-billion times daily. Users can click on the +1 button which shows up near a search result if they are logged into Google Plus and doing a search on the Google search engine.

Google+ was launched on June 28th and is currently in a testing phase where a limited amount of people have been invited to try the service and share it with their friends.
