    Great Article. This gives me a better understand of Google+, I have never really used it as a social media tool but after this article I plan on implementing it into my strategy.

    “25 million registered users” but every connection I have is several days if not weeks old. Nobody is really using Google+ compared to the volume using Facebook or Twitter.

    The premise is good but the execution is a bit late in the game. With Facebook’s improved contact lists, it is now easier to talk directly to the people you have like interests with. And the ability to quickly post a comment to any one of those lists is extremely easy now.

    I haven’t been a fan of many of the updates with Facebook but I have to say this last update finally did something right.

    Google+ is just another Yahoo Pulse in that it might be useful but only a select group use it and if you want to do social marketing you have to be where the majority of the people are and right now it’s Facebook and Twitter.

      Interesting comment — thanks for sharing! I guess that’s why we’re still talking about the basics: because so many of us are still new to Google+, still figuring out what it can do.

    Unfortunately 85% ppl on Google+ are stagnant…and don’t know what to really do. So as @chwabbc stated, “Nobody is really using Google+ compared to the volume using Facebook or Twitter”

    The “new” kid on the block “Google+” has taken the role of “3rd wheel” or odd one out. It just another place to have to go to and maintain. Hence the lack of interest and volume users.

    Google is great as a search engine, keep it there.

      Thanks for taking time to comment, Cori! I definitely think that all marketers are going to have to prioritize their social media time — none of us have time to do everything, and as the number of communications channels grows, it gets harder and harder to fit in everything we want to do!

        Agreed! Not necessarily prioritizing, but selecting the correct broadcasting channel to engage in for your business :)
