Google+IconThis in an exiting time for social media--Google+ has arrived on the social media scene, and I am very psyched about the potentional this social media platform is going to have for businesses everywhere. Christian Oestlien, Product Manager at Google+, provides a glimpse into the future direction of Google+ and its relevence to business.




I have set up my Fred Strickroot Google+ personal profile, with my ABOUT section being business oriented. Google+ has a much better method of displaying the links to other social media than Facebook does (I still LIKE Facebook). I am just being honest, and from a business perspective, I think you will agree :-). Hopefully it will be simple to transition to a business profile once that becomes available on Google+.

If there is anyone looking for an invitation to Google+, I may be able to send you one (not sure because I have not done it yet). Just send me your email address.

Thanks for sharing your perspective. I got a Google+ invite from Google but haven't even cashed it in yet.

Michelle, I understand. This social media stuff is so time consuming. I think Google+ might just hit the ball out of the park by implementing the ability for business profiles. Facebook has pages, I know, but I believe that Google has the ability to surpass Facebook in the social media for business category. Just get started a bit at a time. It took me about 4 hours to do what I did on my site. The hardest part for me was deciding which photos to use. Good luck.

Janice, I sent you one, and added you to my circle. I am just learning the ropes a little bit at a time, keeping it fun.
