A consistent topic of conversation among marketers!
Google+ Beat: PR flacks for FB love to diss G+. Meanwhile G+ continues along as both Social Network AND (see article) something much subtler. We use video hangouts for our Agency... can't do that on FB. And for every conference I attend, I do a circle for speakers... about 20% are highly active with weekly posts on G+.

- The press loves headlines about one company crushing another, or upsetting the status quo. They're "link bait" because they draw viewers and clicks. It's just that the real world rarely is so simple that one company can quickly knockout another, especially if both of them have millions of loyal fans.Nov 30, 2012
- I think the article has a good point. Google+ might be similar to a company sponsoring a public square where people can congregate, not to charge them admission or sell them goods directly, but to have a chance to observe trends, build goodwill and become an indispensible part of their lives. Ultimately, that might still lead to sales (indirectly), but short-term it is more of an investment in the future.Nov 30, 2012
