You may not like Google+ but its best friend is #Google Search so it’s time to play nice! #SocialMedia #Online #Digital
Google+ started in 2011 but never lived up to the “Next Facebook" hype. Many poke fun at the social platform that, let's remember, introduced great features like Google Hangouts for example. There has been rumours of its upcoming death, and you may have given up on Google+ but don’t disregard it from your social media strategy…

Rethinking #RealTimeMarketing: How #Brands Can Really Matter in the Moment?! #Digital #Online #SocialMedia #CommandCenter
Watching live events with a smartphone is becoming a standard practice. Brands such as Nike and Electronic Arts are latching onto this trend and giving audiences a real companion to the live event. But it's not an easy thing to do, and requires planning ahead.
