Share Share The number of times that Google employees sign up for free accounts has more than doubled in the last year, according to a new study.
A total of 7,822 people signed up for the free account in the first quarter of 2017, which was up from 2,824 in the previous quarter.
The study was conducted by the company, but Google did not release its own data, but said it would share its findings in a forthcoming research paper.
In the past, Google has not publicly acknowledged how many employees are signing up for Google Plus, which allows users to post videos, links and other content for free.
Google is trying to expand the service by adding other features like video chat and photos.
But the company has struggled to attract enough people to its free accounts, which were created in 2014.
