Since its inception in 2011, Google+ plus has been an enigma to the vast majority of small businesses and it has prompted them to ask, is it worth it for my business to be active on Google+? The answer is yes! Here are 6 reasons...
Although Google+ has been around for over two years now, it is still a relative newcomer in the social media arena. And even the most die-hard users admit that the platform has a ways to go in terms of catching the sheer amount of users that Facebook and other stalwarts currently boast.
But things are changing, and quite rapidly. As of October 2013, Google+ claimed approximately 540 million monthly active users out of 1.1 billion registered users, which is nothing to scoff at. And considering Google’s near infinitely deep pockets and stated commitment to the platform, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
Here are the top seven reasons why you should give Google+ a chance, and why if you don’t, you could be left behind sooner rather than later.
If you’re looking for the best group video chat feature available anywhere, look no further than Hangouts. Group discussions are a snap – simply select a person or people you want to talk to (which is made easier with Circles…but more on those later) and initiate the call. That’s it – everyone with a camera appears on screen and the quality of the video can go up to full HD depending on your Internet speeds. Any user can share their screen to the group at any time, and documents can also be shared to the group with a few clicks. There are even lots of snazzy effects that can add functionality, fun, or both to a standard video chat. And the best part of all? It’s absolutely FREE.
The world’s best photo site is called Google Plus!
