googly over google+ communities
January 4, 2013
→We’re not going lie. We were pretty P.O’d at Google+ when without warning, the platform shunned our attempt to alter our profile name because we’d exceeded the maximum (3) amount of allowed changes. (Puh-lease.)
But, like any other love-hate relationship, it usually only takes a little positivity to turn things around. And, we have to say that the platform’s recent introduction of “Communities” has us googly-eyed all over again.
Communities is a platform within Google+ where users can connect, much like a group works on LinkedIn or Facebook—but more sleek, user-friendly and fun. While engaging others on Google+ before was somewhat challenging, now it’s easier for members to connect with like-minded people with whom they can share their interests, causes and passions or learn information from and connect with the experts in their particular niche. (OK, we know it doesn’t sound so exciting, but this video will get you fired up; or, maybe we’re just geeks.)
If you’re thinking this is great for my hobbies, but wondering how Google+ Communities can help your business, this socialmediaexaminer.com article will tell you everything you need to know.
