Why Facebook must Look Out for the changes with Google+ (G+). And what this means for your business.
First off Google works well for business before they ever became social. Now that the social part is in… Look Out Facebook!
Here is what I found when I opened my calender this morning:
Where facebook has started as a social program and works well for that, they are second to business. So the differance is that Google is business first and now social with the business working well already.
What does this mean for you? You can use many different sites or devices and all your content goes to the same network, Google+.
Want to review a restaurant? That is Google+ Local! When you post that review it posts to G+. Then others can 1+ it and comment on it. Then this all will show up all over the place, even in search results!
New Google+ Local
Want to find an address?
That is Google Maps, and Google+ Local is part of Maps so you can jump right over there and all this from your mobile phone. Where is all this on facebook? I know they have some of it but… Google is so deep in so many places… Look out facebook!
What about checking in?
Yes Google has that too (part of local)!
Do you have a business that you want people checking in at? Should you be on G+?
What if you want to know if a restaurant has good review?
You will find that in Maps or Local. Would you like to konw what your friends think of a restaurant? How about finding out without even contacting them? You can do this from your phone because G+ is right there. Look out facebook!
We already search on Google, so with G+ we know what our friends have said on it from their posts!
What if your you where posting on your niche topics. And your friends found what you said when they searching because they where ready to buy, do you think that would help you sell your goods or services? YES IT WOULD! This is why I say Look out facebook!
