Many of us have been wondering what is going on with Google+. There have been very few updates to the service. Most of the movement has been to breaking services out (i.e. photos, hangouts) than improving what is there. This week we finally got an answer. They are evolving Google+ to focus on the strengths […]
Is Google+ Finally Being Phased Out?
Google+ has always seemed like the step child of the social world. It never really took hold in the mass market as Facebook and Twitter. Google always seemed to have a plan for the service but few ever knew what it was. When it was launched Google+ was to be the center of the Google […]
Google Taking on Pinterest?
Just when you thought Google+ was on life support they release a new feature. The new feature is called Collections. This feature is sort of a Pintresty type of service inside Google+. I say “sort of” because to me its different than Pinterest. But more on that in a second. Here is the announcement on Google+ […]
Is Google Plus Done?
Last Monday Google had a post on, of all places, Google Plus. The new head said that Google Plus will split to form Google Photos and Google Streams. You maybe asking “How does this affect brands?” Well, Its still too early to tell. But if I had to guess, I would say it’s the beginning […]

I was just thinking the last week or so that I haven’t logged on to Google+. It’s kind of a ghost town with the friends I have on it. Very little interaction and commenting. So, this had me pondering is it a dead social platform walking? It maybe, however, the picture part of Google+ is […]

Google Plus Gets Share Button, but is it too late?
Google+ has been a topic for me here over the last few months. I do like the layout and design, especially after the redesign. It is cleaner and easier to find posts. Big hopes were what I had for the social network, but they haven’t been realized yet. The function that is the main draw […]

Why I like Google+
I know many out there aren’t fans of Google+ and many of our social media folks have written it off. First, let me say I feel that Google did botch the launch of +. They should have run a smaller beta and then had pages and everything ready to launch. With that said, I am […]
Google Plus Pages are HERE & Timeline
Well the long wait is over. Today Google announced Google Plus Pages. It took most of the day for me to get in and set it up, but I finally did it. Some of the problems I have seen are: Only one admin is available right now, so who ever creates the page will be […]
