Google Plus

Is it time your business jumped on the Google Plus bandwagon?

in Search Engine Optimisation, Social Media | Comments Off

Back in June 2011 Google launched its new social media and networking platform ‘Google Plus’ (also known as Google+ or G+), merging previous services such as Google Profiles and Google Buzz, and adding a host of new features including:

Stream – the main message wall of Google Plus where text, images, videos etc. are added
Circles – enabling users to organize contacts into groups for sharing different content
Hangouts – group video chat for up to 10 users at a time
Messenger – instant messaging for Android, iPhone and SMS devices
Sparks – enabling users to create topics (or sparks!) of interest to share with other users

Initially business profiles were not allowed and any business accounts found were quickly terminated.
