I visit google plus once a day to keep myself updated on what’s happening “over there.” I noticed that I tend to spend more time on facebook than on G+. My friends are in Facebook, as well as my market. I do not see any of that on G+.
I keep hearing that G+ is the next big thing in social media. Well and good. Until today, I am still waiting for the next “Michael Jackson.”
Some say that having a presence on G+ helps improve your exposure to search engines. Good point. But If I had to go to G+ so I can be found, then I am not doing a good job with my blog/website.
One of the reasons why social media is effective as a marketing tool is because people would rather listen to peer recommendations. If none of my friends are in google plus, then G+ doesn’t cut it just yet, doesn’t it?
G+ has its good points. It’s like moving to a different country. You find a different perspective. A lot of people in there have influence. There are a number of tools that I have yet to use to increase reach.
I am open to G+, but personally, I am spending more time wtih FB.
