Is Google+ Dead or Winning? You Decide by Jennifer Hudson Taylor


There is a great debate going on in the Social Media world right now. Some are saying that Google+ is already dead in spite of the fact that it has several million in only a few short months and just rolled out their platform pages to businesses this week.

Others are saying that Google+ is a win-win situation and will eventually be the only real true competitor for Facebook. Below I've posted two articles, one for and one against.

You decide. What are your thoughts?

It's dead. Or soon will be. Things like that have to have a good name and it doesn't.

At first I thought Google+ would make a great go of it, but now that I'm seeing all the activity dwindle and FB is still going so strong, I'm thought process is changing.

I even created the new business page that they just released and it doesn't look or feel any different from one's profile. If I suggest current followers and friends follow me, it feels like a repeat of what they already see and get from my Google+ profile. There needs to be a distinct visual difference and there isn't one.

I think Google is trying too hard to take over and be something they're not.

If you're a bear, don't put on a kangaroo suit and pretend, because the springy feet and pouch are missing, and you're only fooling yourself.
