7 Reasons You Need To Be Using Google Plus Now

 

 

As most people are capitalizing on the power of social media platforms, Google Plus seems to be moving fast and ready to make all the other social media sites trail behind. The fact that Google owns 23% of the internet browser market and 70% of the internet search market, Google has a strong market base in mobile, with 48% of the smartphone market share. And while most people are “tweeting”, “liking”, “connecting”, and “following”, it’s high time, everyone starts plus-ing with Google Plus.

Check out the seven reasons below:

  1. Google Integration. Take some time to check what Google-owned products you use and how often. There’s Google Search, Chrome, Android, Gmail, Google Maps, Docs, YouTube, Gchat, and Calendar. Millions of users are already on these products every day. With Google soon to integrate of all these products there will be no reason for people to leave Google to do some social networking. With Google Plus, the package is complete.
  2. Have You Tried ‘Hangout’? Google Plus has a feature, “Hangout” and it is something you should try, now. Hangout puts Google Plus way ahead of Facebook and other social media sites in terms of chatting or messaging. With this feature, you can have up to 9 people chatting or video-chatting at the same time, share YouTube videos, play games, create art, or work on a Google Doc Project. If you’re looking for a versatile social media site where you could multi task, then, Google Plus is the place to be.
  3. Managing Friends through Google Circles. Google Plus allows grouping of your friends and it’s very easy and almost natural. Google Plus requires you to put each new connection into a circle once accepting so grouping happens at once – no backlog, no build up.
  4. The Right Way to Deal with Privacy and User Data. Privacy has always been an issue for many of the social media sites. And so is irresponsible managing of user data. Google learned its lesson from them (other social media sites), and made sure none of those issues ever surface in Google Plus. “Data Liberation” tool in Google Plus allows you to download and permanently remove all your personal data and activities from the site with just a few clicks. And even before Google Plus, Google has already placed user data safety and privacy high up on its topmost priorities.
  5. Google Search Ranking. This goes for a business trying to market its brand online. Not being on Google Plus makes you miss out tremendously on online media mileage. Your Google Plus profile and business page are included in Google Search results. And that already gives you a boost in ranking. This one important factor to watch out in doing search engine optimization.
  6. Sparks Makes Sharing Easy. Google Plus has a tool that allows you to search for content, or pictures or article, etc. within Google Plus and without having to go to any external sites to find things worth sharing. Pressing the Share button is all it takes.
  7. Google Plus = Facebook + Twitter. Google Plus can be considered a combination of Facebook and Twitter, with the best of both worlds. Twitter gives people the place to see quickly what people are talking about, while Facebook allows people to upload pictures, personalize profile, stay up to date, and connect with people they care about. Google Plus has “Explore” tool which is an offshoot from Twitter’s trending view. A take on Facebook is the ability of Google Plus to create what Facebook can - detailed profiles, both professional and personal, upload and share photos, videos and other content.

Now, are these reasons not enough to convince you that Google Plus is the present and future social media and you don’t want to miss out on it when it zooms ahead of everyone else?
