6 Hangouts
Hangouts, are useful for  group meetings, discussions, or demonstrations. “It’s completely unique to Google Plus, Facebook and Twitter don’t have these yet.  So how can companies make use of it? You can organize a panel discussion explaining to potential customers how to use your latest product  and then archive it and upload it to your YouTube channel or   YouTube seamlessly. Whether you’re teaching a recipe, organizing a chat with thought leaders, or doing a live product demonstration, “It looks very professional but doesn’t take much effort.”

7 Google Plus’ Communities feature,

Allows groups to form around particular interests. “Three weeks ago, I wouldn’t have said Google Plus was an easy place to meet people,” says Sherman, “but now it’s amazingly different. You can even join the community as a brand, which you cannot do on Facebook, and you can interact with your potential customers, influencers, and people of interest.” Indeed, she points out, “there are a ton of influencers who are concentrating on Google Plus these days.” And as she wrote in a recent blog post, “GooglePlus can give you access to influencers who might not notice you elsewhere…There is a nice spirit of camaraderie that people seldom feel with well-established platforms.”  What group will you set up ?   Thanks to Linda Sherman
