The Google vs Facebook fight just got bigger!
 
Announcing Make the Switch

Today, we're very excited to announce a project that we've been working on with the writers of +Google Plus Daily, as well as some big +Google+ personalities who will be posting over the next 28 days.

Make the Switch: www.maketheswitch.me
Community: http://goo.gl/BGATX

We’re launching Make the Switch, a campaign to inform users of how Facebook has been treating them badly and to show them how Google+ makes for a much better experience.

We created Make the Switch to highlight the benefits of Google+ as well as educating users about Facebook's poor practices  The website displays 5 simple steps on how users can make the switch to Google+, and to inform others why and how they've done so.

We Need Your Help

We’re asking G+ users everywhere to check out and share www.maketheswitch.me, and to use the hashtag #maketheswitch to talk about reasons to exchange Facebook for Google+. Make sure to invite your friends and family on whatever network they're currently on - we've even included Facebook profile pictures and banner images. You can also join the Make the Switch Community (http://goo.gl/BGATX) to help new G+ users.

Why?

Why do we want people to Make the Switch. Because Google+ is a better experience for interacting with friends and family. It’s a place where we can trust our digital identities, and it’s a way to meet all sorts of exciting new people. We’ll share many more reasons over the next 28 days, keep following #maketheswitch to see it all.

Are you ready to help users Make the Switch?

Story
Tagline
Marketing online since before Google existed!
Introduction
I started working in online marketing in 1997 when Google was just a twinkle in Larry and Sergey's eyes. I remember the good old days of 10 major search engines and being able to get links from South African embassey sites for my clients :-).

I have worked as a search marketer in three continents, originally with Tradepage in South Africa then with Via Net.Works and the fabulous boys at Fubra in the UK before moving to Infoactive Media. I now work in Infoactive's Ausrtalian branch in front of a big picture window looking out onto the Indian Ocean. Life is so hard sometimes :-)

Kris has managed several home improvement jobs for us including the installation of a beautiful glass pool fence and back garden, and the installation of a central heating system. He is reliable, punctual, finds quality tradesmen and sticks with them while they do the job. The last one is what I valued most as it meant I didn't have to worry about the job not being done correctly, mess or over charging.

I had the mushroom jalfrezi which was so amazing that my husband (who hates mushrooms) said he wished he'd ordered it. We were on a voucher so a bit limited but I honestly wish I'd bought several as it was great value. 2 curries (1 veg/1 meat), 2 na'an, raita and rice with wine. In addition to the incredible veg curry the plain na'an, normally not my favourite choice, was delicious. So different from na'an you normally get, really chewy. Like the difference between normal pizza and napoli pizza bases. The service was a bit rushed and not overly welcoming but to be fair we weren't high paying guests and we did talk our way into a table at short notice on a very busy Saturday night. So I think they did well considering they had a massive party to attend to. Overall we were very happy and will definitely be back, voucher or no.

Went for the all you can eat Sunday carvery with free flowing champagne and a chocolate fountain. It is not cheap so best saved for a special ocassion but I definitely felt it was worth the money. The drivers and under 18's were offered juice and soft drinks at no extra charge and the selection of both savory and sweet food was fantastic. My only regret is that I wasn't starving hungry as I didn't manage to try everything. The staff were helpful and kept the champagne flutes topped up! We had a toddler with us and no one seemed to mind or make us feel bad about it. So although it is better for older children or adult parties young children are accommodated and there is plenty that they will like as well (who doesn't like roast potatoes and gravy!).

We'd worked in Hillarys for a year before we found out about Spinnakers and it's just a short walk behind our office! It's hidden away from the main tourist area just past the yacht club. We've been here for business lunches, company Christmas dos and baby showers. It's always been great. As with any restaurant in HIllarys, it's not cheap but the food has never disappointed and the service has always been good. I'd highly recommend Spinnakers, especially if you're looking for great views a little bit away from the throngs of tourists. They do everything from coffe and cake to full dinners. Definitely worth a try.

I have been going to the Source for tints and cuts since the day I found out I was pregnant over 3 years ago. I have always been slightly allergic (or intollerant) of standard hair dyes and being pregnant I thought trying organic would be a good idea. Loved it from day one - no more tingling, itching or burning. The salon is lovely with a beautiful fountain in the middle and a relaxed, welcoming feel. The prices are about the same as anywhere else along the main commercial area in Joondalup or the City. Sophie and the ladies are lovely. I would definitely recommend The Source, especially if you want to go more organic.

This is not a huge aquarium along the lines of the London or Sydney ones. It is however very much geared towards tiny people. You can take toddler and pre schoolers here and they'll actually be able to participate, look through the magnifying glasses at tiny clown fish and sea horses or pet tiny sharks and rays in the touch pool. Each display has a little stool inset so smaller people can see the contents and there are tanks set up on the ground so little ones can easily see everything. The best bit, as everyone else says, is the walk through with the sharks, huge rays and fish swimming above you. It's pretty full on and I couldn't do it first time around (had to work up to it). But for those that aren't so sissy it's great. (I love it now!). Like all tourist attractions it's pricey but it's also good, especially for smaller children. If you intend to visit often get an annual visitor card. it's not an annual pass but the price decreases after your first visit and then your fourth visit that calendar year is free. Children under 4 are free anyway. There are several toilets and baby/family rooms along with a nice cafe at the top with a bar and stunning views across the harbour and Indian Ocean.

We work in Hillarys so have gone here off and on over the years. It's recently been upgraded and they are now licensed, serving what is perhaps the best value wine in the Sorrento Quays tourist area at AU$6 a glass / $25 per bottle. They also have a fresh orange juice machine for AU$4 per cup. The food is pricey but it's well cooked and they do have daily specials with portions that are usually good. I love their "garnish" salads which are more like a light meal on their own. You could easily split a main between two for lunch, espcially when it's pizza or steak. They have loads of highchairs and are very family friendly. The views are gorgeous and it's a very relaxed laid back atmosphere.
