If Google+ wants any chance of beating the social media juggernaut that is Facebook -- especially after the latter's latest efforts in the search arena -- it needs to reach a far wider audience than it does now. The Mountain View company has just made a small but significant step in that direction with the availability of its G+ iOS app to 48 more countries and territories, according to a G+ post by engineer Frank Petterson. The countries listed -- Bermuda, Cambodia, Malawi and Nepal, just to name a few -- aren't necessarily known for their large populations, but we're sure Google will accept anything that'll help Larry Page make his case against Zuckerberg and crew. To find out which new areas will let you download that G+ app from the App Store, check out the source below.
