  • 26. Natural Search becomes social and personalised…
  • 27. “If Google can succeed in driving large scale Google+ adoption—and derive a wealth of social cues from Google+ users—search could be revolutionised. Google+ users could see highly customized SERPs that rank results based on recommendations /likes from Circles. Shared interests discovered through Sparks could float to the top of the SERP. In other words, the searcher’s friends will play a significant role in influencing where a result ranks and whether it gets clicked—both in natural search and paid search (if social cues are integrated into Quality Score).”

  • 47. Will It Be Successful? An Expert’s take
  • 48. “When it comes to features, Google is at parity with Facebook, but isn’t compelling for a mass immigration of social behavior. They must quickly integrate Google’s unique products like YouTube, Gmail, Apps, and others to slowly attract users over.”
    Jeremiah Owyang
     ”I don't think competitors kill companies and services. I think the vast majority of "deaths" are self inflicted. Facebook didn't kill MySpace and Friendster, they killed themselves.”
    Fred Wilson

    G+ gives me more (real-time) feedback and engagement than my blog ever did.”
    Kevin Rose
  • 49. FUTURE
  • 50. What is the Future of Google+?5 Predictions:
  • 51. 1
    Google+ will not be a “Facebook killer” in the short term. They will instead co-exist. Facebook will play a similar role to Apple iOS(more controlled) and G+ will play the role of Android (more open).
  • 52. 2
    Google+ could become the premiere platform for applications for the Web and mobile.
  • 53. 3
    Google+ will hurt traditional Web properties such as Yahooand Microsoft more than social companies with the increased adoption of Google’s other products (i.e. Documents, Search).
  • 54. 4
    Brands will love Google+ because they already own the majority of the Web. You’ll only need one partner. And commerce integration appears to be intuitive.
  • 55. 5
    Google+ will look, feel and be used completely differently 5 years from now.
  • 56. What Should Your brand do now?
  • 57. Register as a user and test the experience
