  • This is a really useful way to consider how a brand can approach G+ without compromising their other social channels.

    Question: How do you determine which content goes on FB vs G+? I see that you have some overlap between the two, but not that much. How are you determining how to target those two audiences (which probably overlap quite a bit, too)? Thanks!

  • What if? As a business, what if you could have real conversations with your customers? Nothing beats face-to-face interaction. Hangouts allow you to have real conversations with your customers across the globe anytime you want to, with group video chat. Create a video on YouTube? Hold a hangout and watch it live with your customers.
  • What if: You had social elements in all your efforts?What if you could bring recommendations, identity and sharing to all your marketing activities? With Google+, we are taking social marketing outside the four walls of any particular destination with the aim of improving all the marketing you are already doing. Let’s take a look at how this works.
  • The Impossible, possible Platforms change people don't. Social is a core behavior not a destination. That why the key to cutting through is embedding easy access social into everything you do; helping each other create and connect the world around your brand like never before. We can connect in exciting, creative ways that we couldn’t even dream of just a few years ago. We want to help you achieve even greater successes. We want to enable you to embracethe power of digital to create magic moments, connect with your audience and do what you’ve always done - but better. In 5 years, we'll look back at the Google today and we'll say, "remember when we used to search and we didn't see friends' faces and we didn't connect with brands on a personal level? remember the plain vanilla Google?" At Google, we're committed in the next weeks, months and years to help you connect to customers and fans by adding the power of relationships and sharing to all of our products. We really hope you join us.
