Well, I did it. I finally signed up for Google+. I’m told there are 40 million Google+ users. Where are they? No matter.
Why did I do it? Vanity is probably the best answer to that. Really it’s because I am in the middle of starting a new business and since Google controls the majority of search traffic in this world, I figured I could not afford to be there. So I signed up and created a personal page and a business page. If you are wondering whether you should join or not, here are some questions to ask yourself:
Do I have a business or a cause to promote?
Will I log in and use it?
Can I grow personally from being on there?
Really that is what it comes down to. I find it has the format of Facebook, seems to have a news feed layout and the ability to add photos, but is a lot like Twitter in the sense that the recommended people to follow are for the most part people you don’t know.
I’m sure that once I have downloaded the app and played around on it for a while that I will come around. As for now, the jury is still out.
What do you think? Are you on Google+?
