FacebookandGooglePlus

I am a proud lover of all thing Google, so Google+ is no exception because they are always on their A Game. It is also very exciting to see that they’ve finally reach the goal of getting a Social Media platform right, finally.  Kudos to Google because they continue to rock.  I believe that Google+ will be no different than the other platforms that they have excelled at over the past few years.

English: Google+ wordmark

 

There has been so much bru-ha-ha about Google + as a platform since its release and even more now with the huge Google move toward Social Search.  The people with negative views of Google+ are mostly users that are recreational social media users that use social media primarily for entertainment. Most of the people that are huge Google+ fans are people that use the platform for business purposes as they see the value beyond just the recreational use.

 

Although most people that use social media for business purposes are Pro Google+ there have been quite a few that are really NOT warm and fuzzy about the platform. This is just something that I do not understand. These users are somehow under the misconception that they should chose between Google+ and Facebook? Again, something I do not understand.  Why chose?

Google+ and Facebook are totally different platforms and the demographics of my follower are so very different on these platforms as they are on my other social media channels. My Twitter followers are different than my Pinterest followers, my Facebook Page followers are different than my Twitter followers and so on and so forth.

 

If nothing else we should all, as business owners be willing to explore Google+ if only to tap another demographic in which to expose our businesses and services. This is of course in efforts to gain more business, increase sales, make more cha-ching.  So why chose, go with both platforms. Whatever happened to the saying there’s no such thing as bad publicity? Therefore, look at venturing into Google+ as an additional area in which to extend brand recognition.

 

Ok, have at it….
