Interesting that G+ ranks #2 with so few people actually using it as a network. Shows the power of Google that everybody feel like they have to belong to it but so many don't use it :-) Nobody wants to get left behind.

No doubt that Facebook and Google+ are the two social media sites that are being compared day in, day out. But the truth is that these social media sites are two different beasts that cater to different types of people and if you’re the social media or marketing manager for a brand, you would immediately think that Facebook is the best way to go, since it has the most user base then ignore G+, of course depending on your brand and the type of engagement that you want to achieve, there are questions that you needs to answer first like; do you know which social media sites is best for your brand? target audience? where your brand will most likely have a high level of engagement..?

Google plus remains the most disruptive social network. I do a lot of SOWT (Strengths, Opportunities, Weaknesses, Threats) analysis. One thing comes up over and over. Many competitors are killing each other on Facebook and or Twitter, but few seize the high ground that is Google plus.

5 Google+ resources & tips for business – plus infographic

5 Google+ resources & tips for business – plus infographic | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

In viewing the philosophy and personas of the the top three social networks — Google+, Facebook and Twitter — all are taking and staking different positions online.

- Google sees Google+ as core to its online properties. This can be seen with the Google+ button on almost all its online properties from Gmail to Google “Reader”. Google is about relevancy and user experience.
- Facebook positions its social network platform as being about people’s identity. The “Timeline” update further reinforces this position as it allows you to update your life history and place it with the appropriate date stamp in your timeline stream.
- Twitter sees itself as about “Events”. Breaking news and events globally in real time but keeping its charm and interface simple.

The challenge that most Facebook users face with changing to other social networks is that firstly, it is very time consuming managing two social platforms, and secondly, why change when most of their friends already hangout on Facebook.

Here are some valuable tips, resources and insights to how to use Google+ effectively...

6 Social Media Networks to Watch in 2012 plus Infographics | Jeffbullas's Blog | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Social media is spreading knowledge globally at the speed of a “Tweet” and provides us all with tools that can enable us to follow our dreams, if only we can capture and heighten that curiosity for knowledge that drives humans to succeed.

Facebook and Twitter allow you to connect with your tribe, whether that is in New York, London or Lombok, that can provide stimulation and synergy that will surprise you with its breadth and reach and provide neuron muscle and connect you with your passionate energy that you may not have known you had.

The social media ecosystem is now so extensive and encompassing that I thought that it would be best to stand back and reflect on some significant events and evolutionary changes that are impacting how we communicate and connect.
