Bringing you marketing information, tips and techniques from around the world to help grow your business

Google Plus - Is the new social network from Google a Facebook Killer? I don't think so


Just when we've managed to get all our marketing channels in place (Google Places as the new yellow pages, Facebook Business Pages as our new referral engine and Twitter to keep the word out on the street about our brand) Google goes and spoils it all by creating another Social Network we've got to keep our eye on.

We've already added the Google Plus Social icon to this site in anticipation of Googel+. If you've not heard about Google's new Social Media offering, Google Plus Project, over the last week or so, then you've probably been hiding under the proverbial rock.

It's all over the web and definitely the topic of conversation for all the tech geeks and journalists out there right now.

To bring you up to speed and give you the opportunity to decide to spend more time looking into the possible benefits for your business, I thought I'd post some links to 10 of the most interesting views from top online authorities.
