Google has tried to enter the realm of social media several times, but this time it looks like they got it right. During the first 2 weeks of their debut, they had over 10 million users sign up, and for good reason. Google+ works to expand on what Facebook has already brought us while further innovating social media. It integrates some of their other social services like Google Profiles and Google Buzz, and presents some other interesting concepts, providing huge potential for increasing company awareness among a large audience. Google+ boasts of “circles” that organize contacts for sharing, “hangouts” for group video chat, and even integrated video games. “Badges” are a reward for interacting with people. They also have a very innovative tool called “ripples” that lets you see who you are reaching with your messages and the whole process of social sharing, an enormous step forward in providing an avenue for people to see how far reaching their posts are and how they can improve them. “Sparks” enable people to see what might interest them and “hashtags” provide accurate labeling. Google+ provides an excellent way for a company to use targeted tactics to garner public awareness and brand exposure.
