social media, social networks, britney spears, celebrities, google plus, facebook, twitterPop singer Britney Spears became the first Google+ user to amass more than 6 million followers on the site, GPlusData shows.

Spears and her pop rival Lady Gaga, the only two Google+ users to have more followers than Google CEO Larry Page, are helping the site shed its reputation for being primarily used by Google employees.

Page has 5.3 million followers.
