Google Plus Review
Google Plus, the social network brainchild of the search engine giant Google, appears to have the most potential out of Google’s many failed attempts at tapping into the social media galaxy. It looks to be a solid competitor to both Facebook and Twitter with refined privacy settings and easy-to-use features. Google Plus offers innovative ways to group together friends, share information, and integrate the entire web experience into one personally tailored hub through “+1’s”, a component similar to Facebook “likes.”
So what does this mean for your business? Well, for starters, Google Plus isn’t ready for you –just yet. The company is hard at work further developing the software to enable it to become much more usable and effective for businesses. For now, it’s mainly targeted at consumers. Eventually, the +1 system will be incredibly beneficial for businesses because it will improve search results based on recommendations. When Google Plus users +1 a website they like, they share it with their “circles” – Google Plus’ grouping mechanism – and have the option to share specific information with specific circles.
According to several reviews, the +1 social buttons have shown a profound growth, with many websites adding them to their content. So profound in fact, +1 buttons have surpassed Twitter buttons. This sort of rapid growth is only one example of how powerful Google Plus may become as a social media tool for your business.
Judging by the rapid growth and elite features the service offers, it’s safe to say that Google Plus will be successful. However, until Google Plus becomes totally open to the general public and the software is developed well enough to support the use of businesses, how successful it can potentially become is still up in the air. Stay tuned for more information on how Google Plus can help your business.
