Better Decision to switch to G+?
« on: 10-14-2014, 03:52:10 »
I dont know why I am getting irritated by Facebook now a days. Is it a good idea to switch to G+ other than Facebook for my business purpose? What do you think guys?

Next to fb , google plus is widely viewed as the next best business platform as well as provides significant features.

This is better decision if  and only if face book is closing their account from all over world Or in case of face book is banned for some countries or on all the places.

Evaluating which social platforms to engage with your customers will entirely depend on:
Whether your market / customer base already use that social platform.
Getting traction on a social platform that has a very low amount of users in your industry is next to impossible.

You will notice generally that
1. Facebook is for: entertainment / videos / funny stuff.
2. Google plus is more informational, conversational. This lends itself to more educated topical conversations.
3. Twitter is about news: breaking updates, politics, and trends in breakout.
4. Instagram is purely visual: great for fitness, cars, anything highly aesthetic.
5. Pinterest is about women: great traction for personal care, cosmetics, anything women orientated

Go find where your industry hanging out. That is the best place to engage socially.

Agreed! Google Plus is ideal for enhancing your business, but still Facebook is attracting people with each passing day. Facebook still stands at the leading position for getting maximum visibility.

It would be a really bad business decision to put all your eggs in one basket... Especially when the basked (Google +) still isn't the leader on social media... Business people use Google+ but if i ask 200 people in my close range if they use Facebook or Google + i'm sure 190+ will say... i have a Google+ account but i don't use it.

Why aren't people using G+? I think the interface is just not that simple as they want it to be... Facebook is easier to understand to the minority and as long as the minority is using Facebook, G+ won't grow that hard... so for a marketing perspective and a business perspective i would focus my energy mainly on Facebook and 20% on Google+

Even though G+ has a lot of great tools and features for both personal and business profiles, would be a lie to say that it is a blast in regards of people spending time on it, it is almost a ghost town. Switching completely to G+ is not quite a wise decision, since currently Facebook is the social network where everybody is now. A suggestion would be to have profiles on both, more reach never is a bad idea.

I have never been a user of Google +, because I am fully satisfied with Facebook! But I think, it is never too late to try something new! So I wish you all the best!

Hey Kate actually I myself now using both Facebook and G+ for social media marketing purpose. But the truth is, I have finally realized Facebook is a better choice than G+. Whatever people may say but majority of the people use Facebook.
