Startups Should Use G+, Here's Why

Startups Should Use G+, Here's Why | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it

GPlus Is For Startups
GPlus is a much misunderstood social network. That misunderstanding may stem from the fact it is not a social net. GPlus is really a tool suite with a social net sitting on top of it. There are several reasons G+ is great for startups including:

* Not As Crowded as other Social Nets.

* Better for long form content.

* Great for conversations.
* Hangouts on Air = create YouTube Videos automatically.

* There's a learning curve.

That last bullet is why we love G+. Since there is a bit of a learning curve, many aspects of the tool are not intuitive, the uncommitted are turned away. What is left is a group of power users ready, willing and able to contribute meaningful content, inspiration and awareness for your startup.

Try creating a committed tribe of power users on Facebook (hint: you can't). Share pictures of your new baby on Facebook, use GPlus to build your business.

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Funny. On the day of the Facebook offering I heard major players discuss how they were doubling down on Google while limiting their Facebook investments confirming a trend everyone in my tribe of Internet marketers felt - Google's resurgence. Great infographic here showing just how broad, wide and powerful Google's "resurgence' is and we are only half way through the second act.
