By now you have heard of Google+. If you haven’t, it must mean that you have been under a rock since June 28th when Google announced its new social network. It’s been on the evening news, been in the newspapers and has even been the butt of parodies.
It seem like everyone and their brother is talking about it online and it’s truly surprising how many ”experts” have surfaced in the few short weeks since it launched!
Dubbed the “Facebook killer” by some, and called “Trojan Horse” by others, it’s the latest “new thing” to be coming down the pike.
What exactly is Google+? According to Google it’s Real-life sharing, rethought for the web.
That tells us a lot doesn’t it? Because I am not altogether certain what it is and how to use it, I went on a search for the best info that I could find.
Here are 10 articles, lists and essays on Google+ that I found to be helpful and I hope that you will too. If you know of a great Google+ resource that I missed, please share it in the comments below so that we can all learn.
In the meantime, I am going to wait for Google to bring out their business version. I am quite happy with my social interaction on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, so I really don’t need yet another place to spend my time.
