Google Plus Summer Challenge
If I say Google plus…what goes through your mind?
Yet another social network that I don’t need
I don’t have time to learn how to use it
No-one is on it isn’t worth my time
If you are thinking along these lines I can understand your reservations. New social media networks are springing up all the time, Google Plus has been around for a while now and still doesn’ seem to have really taken off. According to experts it is only a matter of time. They think G+ is best placed to take on Facebook mainly due to the strength of all it’s sites being unified in one space. Is there room for improvement? – certainly, but after hearing more about the benefits of G+, I’m going to take another look at it.
From a practical point of view I already use a lot of Google Apps including Gmail and Google Docs which I use on a daily basis. I like the idea of making G+ work for me. Facebook is frustrating me with all its changes and bugs, sometimes I can upload photos, other times I can’t. It’s unpredictable and wastes my time when it doesn’t work the way it used to. So this Summer seems like the perfect time to investigate G+ a little bit more.
WHAT DOES THE SUMMER CHALLENGE INVOLVE?
There are no rules. This is a no pressure challenge so let’s keep this stress-free. The idea is to commit to trying out Google Plus for the summer. To explore the features, possibilties and benefits to see if it works for you. By the end of the Summer you may decide to forget it altogether or you may decide to intergrate it into your marketing plan. We’ll see!
At the end of the Summer we will compare notes. Maybe we’ll even hold a Google Hangout so we can share our experiences with each other.
