8 Ways to Get More Google+ Page Followers

8 Ways to Get More Google+ Page Followers | GooglePlus Expertise | Scoop.it
Let's face it, Google+ is not going to go away like Google Buzz or MySpace. More and more users are becoming familiar with Google+ and using it every day to connect and communicate. Equally as important is the fact that Google+ is more deeply integrated with Google's other products and services than any other service we've every used before. Having a successful Google+ Business Page is no longer an option for businesses who wish to succeed online. However, starting a new social media presence is a pain!

A life changer!

After receiving an invitation to join Google+ in June 29, 2011 I've never looked back.



There was just something in this platform that swept me off my feet: I decided already in August that year that Google+ will somehow be the lode star of my new career.  I saw this as an opportunity especially for the small entrepreneur without unlimited marketing budget to get the message out there...

I quit my job and started to study entrepreneurship, business and social media.

5 Reasons Educators Should Use #GooglePlus

5 Reasons Educators Should Use #GooglePlus | GooglePlus Expertise | Scoop.it

When I poll educators and ask, “How many of you are on Google+,” I get very few hands responses. Google+ is not just for Google employees and Google fanboys anymore. Google+ is the fastest growing social network, and offers some great ways to connect and learn with other educators that you cannot find on other platforms. 

Google+ has quickly become one of my favorite social media platforms. I have connected with some great educators, and now moderate several communities. If you are not using Google+, you are missing out on some great features, and great ways to expand your PLN.

Google Now Allows Brand Pages to Become Google+ Local Pages

Google Now Allows Brand Pages to Become Google+ Local Pages | GooglePlus Expertise | Scoop.it
Today, Google is releasing a feature worldwide that allows a business to transfer the “heart” of its local data (verification, reviews, Map pin, location) from a verified Local Page to an existing Brand Page.


This allows a business to now “upgrade” their Brand page (or any non-local page) to a full local page where it will get more exposure. The feature essentially transfers the connection to Maps from one page to another.

Here is the Google Places Help Center article about connecting a Brand Page to Google Maps:

How to be a Google+ success - Biznology | GooglePlus Expertise | Scoop.it

It just occurred to me, after spending a week deep-diving into Google+, that Plus is not a social network — or even a social layer — it’s a global reboot of the message board.

If you want to succeed, you need to forget about your friends and your family. Leave them behind. There are cooler, smarter, funnier people on Google+ than we have in our own lives now.

This article is one that has a personal flare for me. In using my YouTube channel to share screencasts and student projects, there are times I need to make adjustments to uploads. In addition, I like to  share video editing tools with my students.  Thus, this tool feature is one deserving of being integrated into projects.
