    11. Google+

    Revolution in online communication

    GPlus guru B. L. Ochman describe Google Plus as, "Not a social net, like other social networks, but a revolution in online communication". We agree and love all the "anti-GooglePlus" noise. Keep it up as we use this powerful engine in a way any such judgments will be costly (and costly in ways where those who think them may never recover). Martin W. Smith

  12. 12. Google Plus

    • What: content curation tool set.
    • Why: its GOOGLE.
    • Why: great community power users.
    • Why: conversational & Hang Outs.
    • Benefit: dISRUPT existing SEO FAST.

    More and more our marketing world is about conversations. G+ is the most powerful conversation tool available. Hang Outs, once the bugs are out, are going to change everything as we move closer and closer to real time shares, social support and content creation. My GPlus:
