Google has launched a new Google+ Developers page to help developers stay abreast of all the latest Google+ platform news, events, community and more.

With Google+ gaining users every day€”up to 90 million at last count€”the company€™s social platform becomes a much more attractive target for developers.

In a Feb. 6 blog post introducing the new Google+ Developers Page, Chris Chabot, Google+ Developer Relations Team Lead, said, €œAs the lead of the Google+ Developer Relations Team, I€™m really looking forward to meeting you there€”add the page to your circles to join the conversation, comment on posts, and join our hangouts.€

Chabot said on the new page, the Google+ Developer Relations Team will host regular hangouts to talk about the +Platform, developers€™ experiences with it, and share tips and tricks with the community. Moreover, the team will host weekly office hours hangouts every Wednesday from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. PDT from the Google+ Developers Page.

In addition, the +Platform team also will share Google+ developer events, conferences and hackathons, as well as photos and videos of the events on the developer page. €œIn addition, we€™ll announce and discuss our +Platform launches on our page,€ Chabot said.

Last month, in reporting on Google€™s Q4 2011 earnings, eWEEK reported that Google+ had reached 90 million users and added the following:

Google+, the company's six-month-old social-network challenger to Facebook, now has 90 million users worldwide. That's up from the 40 million Google+ users Google CEO Larry Page announced during the company's Q3 earnings report in October.

In a statement, Page said, €œBy building a meaningful relationship with our users through Google+, we will create amazing experiences across our services.€

According to the eWEEK report, €œThose €˜amazing experiences€™ presumably include a broad, deep integration of Google+ into existing Google services. Google, for example, recently moved to make search more personal by injecting Google+ posts and photos in Google.com search results that are tailored to each user.€
