The most frequent question I receive from business entrepreneurs and corporate companies wanting to create brand awareness via the internet is, “What social media platform would be best for our company?” Think of social media as a gateway to great community and customer relations. Unfortunately, the tricky part of social media is that each platform has its own unique benefits and shortfalls.
Since the launch of Google+ in 2011 there has been much speculation of whether Google+ would prove to be a serious social networking threat to Facebook.
Last Friday, Google revealed that they were developing and testing a new app, Mine. The concept behind this is to be able to list all of your possessions and all of the things you want. I expect Google Mine will take off, once the great migration from Facebook happens, and Google Plus takes over.
What is your motive in writing? To prospective bloggers, if you can answer this, the other issues fall into place and are relatively easy.

Google+ is officially open for business. This is the kind of development that gets media in a frenzy and has the analysts chained to their desks for days as they contemplate what all this means. One of the obvious and immediate angles that people like to point out and play up is that Google+ is obviously an attempt to beat Facebook.
"Yes, this is different than +1, which was introduced publicly a few weeks ago. Yes, it (seemingly) is yet another thing you have to try to fit into your life. Yes, this is their answer to Facebook."
[YAGPA - yet another Google + article. Why? Because it's important. - Ed] "...if a company's strength is technology and development of software, then it will become difficult to challenge a leader’s strategy that relies on the ease of human behavior, their conversations and interactions… and vice versa."
