People on Google+ are much more interactive and engaging then other social media sites.
I started using Google+ a little over a month ago and I’m already hooked! I just surpassed 1,000 followers in my circles and I am ecstatic about it. Not only are these people following me they are engaging me. I get likes for all my posts, I get comments and shares as well. Facebook not so much. Twitter, same deal. I can engage with someone I never met before on Google+ and have a blast doing so.
Before I started using Google+ I was one of those people who didn’t even consider it. I practically hated it until I realized that all the people involved are mostly generous, fun people looking to have some online fun and learn some things. I would definitely say the majority of people who use the internet don’t consider Google Plus to even be a thing that should exist. However Google runs the show as far as the internet is concerned so if they have to force Google+ upon people, they sure as hell will. Look at what they did with YouTube comments and people didn’t respond to well to that.
So now you have the people who do use Google+ and why do these people seem to outshine people on other social media platforms?
The Amazing People On Google+
I think a big reason why people are so engaging on Google Plus is because they know there isn’t much progression going on and they want to make sure Google Plus becomes a staple social platform. Also it completely makes you non-anonymous so you really have to put it all out there. This is a good and bad thing.
Some people want to keep there internet life private which I can respect. However It’s a good thing because people can’t really act tough online because you know their real name. It solves a majority of the crap you have to read like on Twitter for example. Also I don’t know about you guys but as far as Facebook is concerned, I’m only friends with people I actually know on there. Google+ is my avenue to share my ideas and beliefs to people I meet online, and I like to keep that separate.
Is Google Plus Growing?
I have only been on Google+ for a month now but it seems to be growing. I just created my account recently so I’m part of the growing process. Them integrating YouTube comments I’m sure boosted the growth of Google+ big time so potential growth looks good. The main fear you have with investing so much time in social media is if that social media is going to be relevant in the future.
Google is going to be around for a long time and we all know that so I’m banking that they will keep Google+ around for quite sometime as well. Also all the website integration is quite fantastic. What I mean by that is look at the bottom of this post, you will see my author tag. This allows my beautiful face to pop up in the search engine so people know who wrote the article instantly. Now that is some cool stuff ladies and gentlemen.
So my message to people thinking about creating a Google+ account, do it. You will enjoy it and it will become addicting. Now I’m not saying every one is perfect, you will run into your occasional idiot, but that’s life. Enjoy yours and share something with me on Google+
