An excellent article on what the Google+ haters really don't understand about the platform. 

 

I don't think I have read a better post on the topic!

5 reasons to use Google Plus Sign In over Facebook or Twitter Sign-In

5 reasons to use Google Plus Sign In over Facebook or Twitter Sign-In | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it
Vic Gundotra, Google’s vice president of engineering, has maintained since the beginning of Google Plus that the social network would take a ”cautious approach” to APIs.

1)  Security – In rolling this out, Google stated that security was a top priority. “Google+ Sign-In also comes with the protections and safeguards you’ve come to expect from your Google account (like 2-step verification), so you can always sign in with confidence.”

 

2) No Spam -  Google went after Facebook by saying that it wont allow apps to ”spray frictionless updates all over the stream.” You will have the option of whether or not you want to share any information concerning the site you signed into, and who see’s the information that is shared.

 

3) Android – Google has something the Facebook and Twitter don’t, the number one mobile operating system in the world.   Google realizes that its an extra hassel to set up your favorite website’s app up on your desktop, phone and tablet separately.   If you use the Google Plus sign-in button on a site that has a mobile app, you will be given the option to automatically install the app to the mobile device of your choice.

 

4) The Google Universe - Google has been working very hard of late to seamlessly connect all there properties: Gmail, Calendars, Drive, Search, etc.  Google Plus Sign-In will be no different.  With Google, when you are signed into one product, you are signed into all.  You will be able to do things like click on an upcoming event in an app and have it added to your Calendar.

 

5) Interactivity - This is my favorite feature.  Google is bringing Interactive Posts to Google Plus.  According to Google, “When you share from an app that uses Google+ Sign-In, your friends will see a new kind of “interactive” post in their Google+ stream.  Clicking will take them inside the app, where they can buy, listen to, or review (for instance) exactly what you shared.”   Google has 100 different interactive buttons that developers can choose from!  Move over “like” button, interactive posts are here.

Facebook has grown and nurtured its audience since its inception back in February 2004 but the relative novelty of Google + has been questioned by some.


The recent release of the new feature ‘Graph Search’ by Facebook as brought new fuel to the clash of these two titans once again. As they both attempt to battle for the hearts and minds of their users with increased functionality and features many will choose one side or other in this increasingly crowded space of social networking.

Google Plus Communities | Social Media Today

Google Plus Communities | Social Media Today | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

Google+ communities are less than a year old but they are becoming an important and powerful feature of Google+. As interest in the social platform has grown so has the number of Google+ communities.


Although you can find more than 100.000 communities on Google+, check out at least those 10 interesting communities recommended by author of this article Steve Rayson.


Ten Google Plus Communities You Should Check Out


The G+ Resource  

The G+ Resource is a community that discusses all things Google Plus, as well as related Google services. It is a great place to start to learn more about G+ or to ask questions.

Google Plus Pro Tips  

This is great community run by Jesse Wojdylo. This community is focused on getting the most out of your Google+ account. Everyone is very willing to help each other learn every single facet of Google+, and help each other solve any problems that may come up. 

Google Authorship and Author Rank  

Google Authorship is increasingly important to any content marketing strategy. It allows content creators to connect their content from across the web to their Google+ profiles. This community is the place to keep up to date with developments and news; and to ask questions.

Social Media Professionals 

This is a dedicated and active group of moderators keen to make sure this community doesn't turn into a community where there is spam and low engagement. Thus it is a request only community. This community discusses topics related to working in or with social media.

Social Media Strategy 

This is a sister community to "Social Media Professionals".  The Social Media Strategy community discusses news and business strategies centered around social media. This goes beyond marketing and can include product life cycle management, customer care, HR, market research, and innovation.

LinkedIn for Business  

This community is focused on how businesses can and do use LinkedIn. I am personally convinced that LinkedIn is one of the other key B2B marketing platforms in addition to Google+ so there is lots to learn here.

Content Marketing World 

This community is focused around an annual event - Content Marketing World. This takes place in September and brings together the largest global group of marketers and content experts. This community acts a forum for discussion open to all those attended and those interested in content marketing.

Content Marketing and Social Media 

There is quite a lot of link sharing in this community and less engagement than some of the others but it is useful for the latest news and posts on content marketing and social media.

SEO and Website Design 

This is one of many SEO communities on Google+ and a good place to keep up to date and discuss developments.

Anders Pink B2B Marketing

Finally, this is a community I recently established to explore, share and discuss the latest thinking on B2B marketing with no sales pitches or commercial posts. Anders Pink is a community of B2B marketers and doesn't sell any services. The aim of the community is to curate a set of high quality articles, case studies and resources to support all of us involved in B2B marketing.

Are you in a Great Google+ Community?

There are some truly awesome +Google+ Communities out there, but if you're like me, it's hard to find them! Maybe you'll get lucky and Google+ will recommend one, but I'm just know that I'm still missing out.

This is a list of the Best Google+ Communities, but it's unfinished. Using the power of a +Listly list, we're going to crowdsource and curate the Best communities out there!

I've started by listing some of my own favorites, and few more have already been added. Please check them out, and if you know of one that's not listed, add it! And I'm also curious, what do you think makes a Google+ Community special?

Google+ Tips And Shortcuts: Increase Your Effectiveness [Infographic]

Google+ Tips And Shortcuts: Increase Your Effectiveness [Infographic] | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it
These tips and shortcuts will help you increase your effectiveness on Google+. There are many extra benefits for being on Google+. This article lists some.


You might be asking yourself why you need these tips and shortcuts since you don’t have time to be on Google+ in the first place. I mean, you’ve already got enough social sites to keep up with, right? If you have a website, and you are trying to increase your traffic, Google+ should not be the social site you let slide. The reason can be summed up in one word – Google – and that means search. If nothing else, that is the reason you need to be there.


Let me just give you one example of what I’m talking about. If you are on Google+, you can sign up for Google Authorship (if you haven’t already done this, I suggest you do it today, just follow that link). We just wrote about this last week in an article called Google Authorship & It’s Insane Impact On Website Traffic. Bottom line, you’ll get to have your avatar show up in the search results on Google, which will give you a huge bump in web traffic. Only 9% of tech blogs have taken advantage of Google Authorship, which leaves a huge opportunity for you if you haven’t implemented it.

Google+ was designed to be the Facebook killer, but it hasn’t accomplished that, not by a long-shot. What Google’s social network HAS done, just this week, is take one step up the podium.


The new Global Web Index results are out, and Google+ has more users than Twitter. Not surprisingly, both networks are still far, far behind Facebook. The numbers break down like this: Twitter has 21% of global internet users using their service, Google+ has 25%, and Facebook has a mighty 51%.
