Google's Gmail: Numbers Don't Lie ......

"....there are 900 million users on Gmail."

 

Thanks Kelly, it is nice to get some real numbers on the number of people using gmail.  Even though it doesn't surprise - it really does.

Re: More Data of Gmail
@jastroff: I don't think you would ever come to know that because I think that kind of information is confidential. Like I would give you a number of my customers but wouldn't tell you how many of them get better priviledges.

Re: Wow, I guess I'm one of the sheep
@progman2000: I don't know if they ever will, but I am more concerned about data security Google has always been keen on developing. Gmail does not have the best defences but oh well it is the first thing that comes to mind when we speak of an email account.

More Data of Gmail
It would be great to get some more precise data on Gmail. How many are "free" accounts and are actually in use? How many are paid business accounts? How many are part of the Google Apps pricing.

>> there are 900 million users on Gmail.

Wow, I guess I'm one of the sheep
I'm all in on Google and have been for a while: long time Gmail user, Chrome user and Android phone user. Every once in a while I wake up in a cold sweat wondering what would happen if Google went all evil-genius and started doing something nefarious with their power. Lucky I am a long time stock holder too so hopefully I will benefit if they hatch some wierd scheme to take over the world.
