Here is a post shared by #kimbeasley about #googleplus  
Google+ is the Social Underpinning for All Things Google

Great article feature input from +Bradley Horowitz regarding the future of Google+ and how it's the foundation for all Google products. Check it out and tell me what you think.

I love this comment from the article:

Google+ is much more than a social destination, there are still more than 300 million active monthly users on the site

I totally agree and my hope is that many more users and businesses will understand the importance of building a solid and engaging presence on Google+. What do you think?

I was wondering what some good social media analytical tools are for small businesses on tight budgets? Hootsuite seems to be the go-to and Facebook's insights has been helpful but any other suggestions for LinkedIn, Instagram, or Twitter?    #socialmediaanalytics

Understanding "where your audience is" is a building block of social media strategy, that can decide whether your marketing efforts are going to be a successful venture or a waste of time.

So whenever possible, it's a good practice to base your social media choices on data.
