May the circle be unbroken

January 25, 2012 § Leave a comment

Google+ is the final tool for your personal brand portfolio. It’s Google’s answer to Facebook and launched with a lot of hoopla. It’s big among those who use it, but I don’t think it’s had the tipping point of Facebook and Twitter. That said, estimates are there are 50 million users.

What really differentiates Google+ are two things: the ability to put friends/followers/fans into circles and communicate directly with those circles and the hangouts, which is a video-chat feature. You can have up to 10 people in them at a time.

Your assignment: Set up a Google+ profile/account.  Gather at least 30 people in your circle. Post at least one thing a week about social media until mid-term.

We’ll do a hangout in class.

Google+ also lets you do brand pages.
