7 Reasons Why Google+ Drives Hyperactive Engagement

7 Reasons Why Google+ Drives Hyperactive Engagement | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it

Post by Jeff Bullas very interesting observations

 

"The Google+ Project has drawn the innovators and early adopters into its web and it is producing activities that have surprised myself and others."

 

Intro:

 

In 1962 Everett Rogers published the book “Diffusion of Innovations” where he synthesized research from over 508 diffusion studies and produced a theory that proposed 4 main elements that influence the spread of an idea.

 

1. The Innovation

An idea, practice or object that is perceived as new

 

2. Communication Channels

The means by which messages get from one individual to another

 

3. Time

The relative speed with which an innovation is adopted by members of the social system

 

4. The Social System

The people that are engaged in joint problem solving to achieve a common goal

 

He also outlined the following adopter categories that reveal the percentages of the types of participants that are involved in the innovation cycle.

It's official: Google+ will be connected to everything

It's official: Google+ will be connected to everything | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it

Are we surprised by this? What are the benefits and the downside for us as participants?

 

Good piece by Matthew Ingram Sr. Writer for Gigaom..........

 

Intro:

 

By now it’s become fairly obvious that Google’s new social network, Google+, is here to stay (unlike some of the company’s past efforts at being social): depending on which estimates you believe,

 

**Google+ may have as many as 50 million registered users, which is not bad for a three-month old product.

 

And the company has made it clear that it wants to use Google+ as a kind of identity platform for other things — hence the importance of its controversial “real name” policy.

 

**But it wasn’t obvious just how much was riding on the new network until recently, thanks in part to some comments made by vice-president of product Brad Horowitz, who said that in the future, Google+ and Google will effectively become inseparable.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

"Tying all that to my real name and my Google+ posts is another step down the road towards a potential personal privacy debacle.

 

**That’s the problem with the kind of ubiquity that Google wants for its Google+ network, and the downside of trying to copy (and improve on) a giant social network like Facebook: along with all of the benefits comes the risks and the inevitable backlash as well

 

**— and for a company that is already under investigation by the FTC for how far its reach extends, that may be a bit more than even Google can handle.

 

What do you think?

A very simple but vital G+ circling strategy

A very simple but vital G+ circling strategy | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it

This wonderful piece was written by Michael Todd. Michael is so generous with strategy, please visit his website, you'll learn so much and maybe even make a great new friend! Thank you Michael....

 

BIO

@mqtodd on twitter

Empire Avenue, TokyoSpeaker, author, love promoter. CEO #NPO Index EAv http://ht.ly/4Jm1q Recovering Kiwi lawyer into raw food, juggling & daily #lifegasm xeeme.com/michaelqtoddhttp://michaelqtodd.com

 

He gives us great strategy on how to get our G+ house in order and build our presence there. Not to mention the fact that it is possibly the best place to get your content shared online.

 

Here's an excerpt:

 

We need to be very aware that the Google + API is about to open any day and that business pages and communities are also due for imminent release.

 

I have no doubt at all that G+ will go from strength to strength and become a very vital part of everyday life online for everyone. The reach and tools that Google has are overwhelming and we are about to see them all lined up. Blogger, Picassa, Gmail, Google Docs, Places, Images, You Tube, Search and more and more.

 

So up till today around 3500 people had circled me but my circles were all over the place. I had made too many I think and I had simply followed back everyone who had circled me. That would be my preferred policy but unfortunately there is a pesky 5,000 circling limit which we will all hit before too long.

 

**Now is the time to get it sorted out.

Is it Better to Share on Google+, Facebook or Twitter?

Is it Better to Share on Google+, Facebook or Twitter? | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it

Jeff Bullas never disappoints, this article is packed with vital information you need to know no matter if you're curating content to build your personal brand or marketing services.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

"The survival of the social species is a digital battle that will create opportunities and disrupt traditional business models for decades to come."

 

The Battle for Social

 

This small change to Google’s search features reveals an evolution of the web that is an early indicator of the growing battle for social that will over time produce winners and losers but will also create a web that will surprise you with its speed and capabilities. The announcement and launching of Google+ saw Zuckerberg respond with a a Skype feature offering free video calls and promising more to come.

 

Social is about Sharing

 

All marketers know that if you can make something so shareable that it goes viral then you will produce results for brands that will sell products, make people famous and maybe even position your agency as part of marketing folklore.

I Believe In Google Plus - Fast Growing Social Network in History

I Believe In Google Plus - Fast Growing Social Network in History | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it

This is an insightful piece by Jon Evans for Techcrunch

 

Intro: He asks.....

 

"Is this a contrarian view? I can't even tell any more. On one hand, Google Plus now has 40 million users, it's the fastest-growing social-networking site in history, and its users have uploaded 3.4 billion photos."

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

Can Facebook seamlessly do both, and be all things to all people?

 

Maybe, but that’s not the direction they’re going.

 

****Ironically, they’re doing things “the Google way,” betting on sweeping algorithmic solutions with their Smart Lists and Top Stories,

 

****while Google seems to be building G+ “the Facebook way,”

 

****around personal curation and social selection.

 

****The key difference is that, as moot aka Christopher Poole said the other day,

 

****our identities — and our relationships — are prisms rather than mirrors, multi-faceted rather than black & white.

 

Google Plus acknowledges this in a way Facebook doesn’t, and that’s a big part of why I believe it will ultimately succeed.

Google+ Growth Explodes

Google+ Growth Explodes | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it
Google+ users have in the last few days increased by almost 30% with 2 major events providing the catalyst to its growth. Facebook making significant changes that has angered users and Google+ opening its platform to the public.

 

Excerpt:

 

According to a survey being run on Mashable, 78% of users hate the new changes.

Users to Facebook who don’t like the changes are venting their anger by using the hashtag #newfacebook on Twitter when making their feelings felt in 140 character bursts. If you want to watch the comments fly by in the Twitter stream, then check it out… it makes interesting reading.

 

The timing is apparently working well for Google+ with Paul Allen estimating that the Google social networking has grown by 30% in just two days. Paul’s estimates of Google+ growth are based upon solid sampling methodologies that have proven to be very accurate in the past.

 

Facebook announced some major changes last week including significant modifications to its profile pages at the annual F8 Developers Conference.

 

Just a few days before that announcement Google+ decided to open its doors to the general public. I don’t think that is a coincidence!

 

The conference and some of the changes were already publicly known and Google was well aware of the conference timing.

 

The timing is apparently working well for Google+ with Paul Allen estimating that the Google social networking has grown by 30% in just two days.

Google+ Suddenly Looks Pretty Busy for a Ghost Town

Google+ Suddenly Looks Pretty Busy for a Ghost Town | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it

Don't count Google+ out just yet......

 

Google+ is opening up. The service that the enthusiastic and curious once begged to join is now open to anyone with a Google account, except those unfortunate Apps users (what’s up with that?). Users new and old also get to play with plenty of new desktop and mobiletoys to remind them what was exciting about G+ in the first place.

 

New APIs even let developers in on the fun.So what’s new? For starters, Google’s finally adding the biggest and most-requested no-brainer of all: search.

 

As you can see from the photo, in the search box that once found only other profiles, users can search over “everything” (i.e., the web), “people,” “Google+ posts,” or “Sparks” (the lightweight Google News front end embedded in G+).

 

Results can then be filtered by “most recent” or “Best of.” The algorithm determining “best” search results in G+ is unclear, but it’s likely some combination of best keyword matches, posts by users in your circles, plus +1 upvotes and/or reshares.

Intro:


Social media can be a very valuable tool for promoting content.
