britney spears tour getty Britney Spears first to hit 1 million followers on Google+Well, it appears people do use Google+ after all. The search company’s second foray into the social media space (remember Google Buzz?) has delivered its first account with 1 million followers. And that person is Britney Spears.

The pop star recently surpassed the milestone and now leads the second most popular person, Google co-founder Larry Page, by just more than 100,000 fans. Coming in third place is self-professed “Spiritual Advisor” Snoop Dogg. The rapper has 941,000 followers.

These numbers all seem like a lot until you realize that they pale in comparison to more popular social media outfits like Facebook and Twitter.  On Facebook, Spears has nearly 16 million “likes” and she’s just shy of 12 million followers on Twitter.

Considering Spears had only 1,100 followers as recently as mid-July, it’s still a pretty impressive number.
