As a social media marketer, it is unbelievable to me that Apple is able to have users do it on their own for them. That is part of why Apple is as successful as it is. How often do you hear about Microsoft and their new products? The only new thing I have heard about recently is their new Windows mobile phone. I think they are having a tough time keeping up with Apple – mainly because of social media.
Since Facebook has gone public, I think they are scrambling. They are scrambling to appease the people and essentially show investors that they are worth the billions of dollars they claim to be. At the end of the day, it’s not going to work. I bet users will yet again post to their statuses, “Facebook! Again?! Really?!”
General Motors is a tough sell. ...But even with recent politics and such, it hasn’t been easy for them. This makes more sense that they would want quality fans as opposed to having tons of fans. It seems as though they were aiming for millions and millions of people.
As a social media platform, it is an epic fail. However, as far as SEO goes Google+ has greatly influenced the results of its searches. By logging into your Google+ account, any pages or anyone in your circles has a higher chance of popping up in the “related people/pages” bar when you search in Google.
