The career of Britney Spears is still thriving—at least on Google+.

The pop star recently became the first person on the platform to reach 1 million circles.

Spears became the most followed person––as in, placed in the largest number of users’ circles––on Google+ this November, after surpassing Google cofounder Larry Page. As of publication, Page has 901,988 followers compared to Spears’ 1,002,825.

The singer’s sudden surge may have something to do with the news she coyly shared today: She’s getting engaged to her former manager.

“OMG. Last night Jason surprised me with the one gift I’ve been waiting for. Can’t wait to show you! SO SO SO excited!!!! Xxo,” she wrote on her Google+ page.

Spears’ popularity on Google+ may indicate that the platform as DOA as some skeptics have claimed. In 2009, after actor Ashton Kutcher became the first Twitter user with a million followers, the platform rocketed into the public eye.

It’s worth noting that Spears was among the first celebrities on Twitter to obtain a million followers, and now has 10 million. Perhaps her Google+ account, she’ll do it again.
