How to Prepare Your Business for Google+

How to Prepare Your Business for Google+ | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | Scoop.it

 

Lots of good information and observations in this article.

 

Excerpt:

 

What's Coming for Business in Google+?

 

Google is preparing Google+ for businesses, as Christian Oestlien, Product Manager for Google+, explains in the video below. Rich analytics and the ability to connect to AdWords will be among those features.

 

What Edge Will Google+ Have Over Facebook?

 

Google+ will have a hard slog against Facebook. It will directly compete with the social network that has consistently gotten it right, especially when it comes to business use. Facebook's recently launched business portal is a great all-in-one tool for businesses to manage their presence on Facebook.

 

Google+ also lacks Facebook's user base of 800 million, although the Google+ user base has blown through 20 million so far and is steadily increasing.

 

Google's biggest ally against Facebook is Facebook itself. Facebook users have been getting ornery about its massive makeover rolled out this week, to the point where many may look at Google+ as a viable, pared-down alternative.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

**There is also the issue of demographics. Google+ is young-adult rich. This is the golden demographic that most marketers want to reach, and being able to reach it through a campaign that can be tracked through Google Analytics is a very attractive value proposition. In addition, there are other tie-in services Google could build into its features for business, which we have covered here.

Interesting. I'm surprised at the shopping numbers. I thought other sources of data had the % of people shopping online similarly high, but a much smaller % of people actually "buying" online...

Hi Darcy, I agree with you, it is a bit surprising - you would think the percentage was higher - there may be some hidden #'s they're not capturing, It'll definitely be interesting to see how how this looks after the holidays.

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

I Believe In Google Plus - Fast Growing Social Network in History | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | 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 | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | 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.

It's official: Google+ will be connected to everything | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | 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?
