Facebook has allowed for branding pages for some time (If you’re not already reading this on our Facebook page, you can see ours here), so when Google+ became active early this year, businesses jumped in and started creating brand pages. Google told us to stop and took down our pages. A few days ago, they said OK, and now you can see our Google+ brand page here. Soon, all of our clients using the Social Media part of our Internet Marketing program will have similar brand pages on Google+, just as they now have them on Facebook. (you can learn more about that here)
The question is, is it all too little too late? Yesterday, I finally set up my personal Google+ page, as I had been invited to do months ago by a family member who thought Google+ was terrific. The first thing I discovered is that they hadn’t posted on their Google+ page since July.
Meanwhile, Slate Magazine has declared Google+ dead. You can read that story here.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on Google+.
