We utilize the Jetpack plugin for our wordpress sites and for some reason our posts show up as private on Google Plus. Have tried a few of the "fixes" and none worked. Have disconnected and reconnected the site and tried the old G+ settings and there is no edit option

The Physical Web, and Google Eddystone Beacons (overview)

You may have missed how Google have a platform called 'Eddystone' that bridges on and offline - allowing for targeted messages based on proximity to real world beacons.
Like iBeacons, but different in part due to Google owning Chrome and Android already.

Add in that you can also do Remarketing (using Adwords) and Retargeting (using Facebook) and the bridge is formed.

This is potentially a whole new world of marketing, but the path is not straight ahead. I've pulled a load of info together here for you, and continue to test the platform out for myself - I'll have stats through within the month.
(hence why not pushing a 'buy now!' offer, quite yet)

https://www.plusyourbusiness.com/what-is-the-physical-web-and-why-are-google-beacons-going-to-be-the-next-big-thing/
The Physical Web is making its way to the real world, near you, right now. And as a marketer you need to know what is it, and how you can use it.

Google Plus has more than one billion registered (and 359 million active) users, as well as some of the most business-friendly features of any social network, this is the time to start building out your business page, if you haven’t done so already.

Ad question: What have been your experiences with composing Twitter Ads and Facebook Ads? I've been studying up on Google AdWords and feel comfortable going live with them, but I'm not sure about the learning curves for the other two. Thanks.

Hi, Michael. I am absolutely not an expert in any kinds of ads. I can say that that I have had 4,949 impressions since starting a low cost Twitter campaign running since June 6. I am gaining, on average 11 followers a day. I am doing other things too so it is hard for me to say if the ads are doing more. I am a happy #cheapskate  anyway.
