BEIJING, July 5 (Xinhuanet) -- Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg confirmed that he has signed up to Google+, the new social networking platform from Google, according to media reports Tuesday.
Launched last month, Google+ is the Internet giant's latest foray into social networking.
Zuckerberg confirmed that the profile with his name on Google+ belongs to him only, and said, "Why are people so surprised that I'd have a Google account?"
In social networking field, it is rare for someone to join the rival's platform, therefore, Zuckerberg's move is considered strange.
But interestingly, Zuckerberg has more followers than Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, and even Vic Gundotra, the man behind Google+, with over 21,000 people.
Besides Google+, Zuckerberg also has an account on Twitter, though it has not been updated for some time.
