Google+ Ghost Stories and Failure Fairy Tales
Debunking every expert that says Google+ is a ghost town

I've been meaning to write this for quite some time. I can't stand when I read an article from some expert who found a bunch of numbers and put together a pretty #infographic  that says Google+ is a failure and/or a ghost town. 

I think all us g+niuses know what the truth is, but some folks have really bought into it. So I put together 10 points that will annihilate any so-called experts attempt to call Google+ a ghost town ever again. 

I mention +Amanda Blain, +Morten Myrstad, +Fernando Fonseca, and my personal Google+ hero, +Mike Elgan in the post because they've all written some great stuff on getting through the ghost town garbage. 

You can read the full post here

I hope you enjoy, and furthermore, I hope it gives you some ammunition to shoot down any of those silly Ghost Stories and Failure Fairy Tales. 

Happy +ing everyone!

So happy with the car I bought from Bradley and the service I received. He was so professional and nothing was too much trouble. A real honest car dealer who clearly loves his job, knows his stuff and genuinely cares about his clients. Thank you. I'd recommend Bradley's Cars to anyone.

Select Servicing are amazing. I had an MOT and an interim service with them. They picked up my car from where I was working that day, which was on the outskirts of Bournemouth, they took it away, carried out all the work and dropped my car back around 5pm and it looked like new! Nice touch with the free valet!!!
