Why Google's Point of View(s) Is Changing + Social Media ROI | Social Media Today

Why Google's Point of View(s) Is Changing + Social Media ROI | Social Media Today | Social Media and Mobile Websites | Scoop.it
Google recently made a change to the way it displays metrics. You'll find that for many people, the "+1's" on your Google Plus profiles have been replaced by a view counter. What does this mean to us?
Joan Stewart's insight:

Randy Milanovic - Impressed with this remark "Quick and easy as it might be, someone has to put at least moment's worth of thought into pressing the "+1" button – giving you an implicit endorsement.

 

Taking that action says something about what they think of you or your ideas, and the message that sends you is a lot more meaningful than an anonymous "view" that may or may not have actually been read." 

 

If you enjoyed the article, ad or picture IMHO it is etiquette to leave a comment and '+JJJJJ'  so some credit is given for time spent preparing media you consume.
