What impact is Google+ Plus having on your business?
The Google+ Plus Project is here and this social media phenomenon is going to bring rapid change to the social marketplace.
The Google+ Plus project aims to make sharing on the web more like sharing in real life with such initiatives as Circles, Sparks and Hangouts becoming the new terms to use to describe your friends and interests.
Is this the competition that Facebook needed? Facebook was looking secure and invincible for such a long time, but recently there were signs the momentum of Facebook was starting to slow down. Maybe, people were getting too much Facebook, but it was still delivering impressive marketshare compared to any other social media competitors out there. We still love traditional social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Stumbleupon, but the Google+ project does move the game on, and it looks like a real gamechanger in Google’s favour.
I think the Google+ Plus team has delivered something exiting and useful.
The big question is will it be taken up by the general public who still love Facebook with all there friends and “likes” in favour of something new, exiting and connected to all their e mail contacts? Facebook is trying to get us all the use Facebook e mail to offer something similar and protect its interests and market share.
