GOOGLE+ IS HERE. WHAT NOW? A few thoughts from  Publicis Modem London
ON JULY 7TH,GOOGLE LAUNCHED GOOGLE+ TO A SMALL GROUP OF TESTERS
IN LESS THAN 3 WEEKS, GOOGLE+ ALREADY HAS MORE THAN 10 MILLION USERS - Larry Page
WE’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT GOOGLE+ FOR BRANDS AND HOW IT COULD EVOLVE
THE SOCIAL REVOLUTION
ACROSS THE GLOBE,USERS CHOOSE TO SPENDTHEIR DIGITAL TIME IN SOCIAL In December 2010, Europeans spent more time on Facebook.comthan on Google sites– comScore, dec. 2010
AND DIGITAL AD SPEND HAS FOLLOWED THEM “In 2010, social media boosts UK online display by 27.5%”  – IAB, mar. 2011
SOCIAL HAS BECOMEA LUCRATIVE BUSINESSFOR MANY COMPANIES
BECAUSE IT BUILDSMORE ROBUST USER PROFILESFOR THEM TO LEVERAGE. “We will record information about your activity — such as posts you comment on and the other users with whom you interact — in order to provide you and other users with a better experience on Google services”– Google+ Privacy Policy
BETTER PROFILES GIVEBETTER ADS.  BETTER ADS MEANS  MORE REVENUE “By plugging Facebook’s social info into its own recommendation algorithm, Amazon can make even better recommendations; which translates to more purchases and higher revenue.” – Business Insider, Feb. 2011
GOOGLE, HISTORICALLY AHEAD IN MANY DIGITAL SERVICES, IS BEHIND IN SOCIAL TECHNOLOGY While they have tried in the past with services like Wave and Buzz,they have failed to capture mass attention and usage.
BUT GOOGLE+ IS ARGUABLYTHE MOST IMPORTANT SERVICE GOOGLE HAS LAUNCHEDSINCE SEARCH
WHATIS GOOGLE+?
GOOGLE+ IS A SOCIAL NETWORK Users get a profile, a news stream, the ability to follow topics they are interested in (Sparks), create groups of friends (Circles), interact with them through video chat (Hangouts). Relationships on Google+ are asymmetric (Twitter-like), which means you can follow people who don’t have to follow you back.
A user profile with friends list contains information like education, location, occupation and links.
A stream, the core part of Google+, is where people share content and interact with one another. It is the core part of the social graph.
Circles allow users to organize contacts into groups and spread them tailored content (wedding pictures with Friends and Family, Financial news with Colleagues...) based on what circle they are in. Interestingly, users cannot see what circles their connections have placed them in.
Sparks to follow feeds of things users like. Although still in beta, sparks pulls in Google News information and will likely improve over time.
And hangouts give users the ability  to have a video chat with a maximum of 10 friends at once (Facebook video chat is a call between two people)
WHY IS GOOGLE+ THE LINCHPIN OF GOOGLE’S BUSINESS STRATEGY?
#1.  USERS’ TIME SPENTON GOOGLE+ WILL PROVIDE GOOGLE WITH MORE DATA “For Google, everything that happens on the Internet is a complement to its main business. As people spend more time and do more things online, they see more ads and they disclose more information about themselves - and Google rakes in more money.” – Nicholas Carr, The Shallows, P. 160
#2.  GOOGLE+ WILL BECOME THE CORE OF GOOGLE’S SERVICES “The assumption is that everything will move over to usingthe Plus infrastructure over time” – Eric Schmidt, Google’s chairman
MAPS SEARCH BLOGGER PICASA YOUTUBE ADWORDS GMAIL ANALYTICS CHROME ANDROID Google+ brings more social into other services, such as YouTube and Chrome, and will activate social data across other Google products that millions are already using.
#3.  GOOGLE HAS ALREADY MADEA HUGE INVESTMENT INTHE SUCCESS OF GOOGLE+ “Google+ is not a typical release. Developed under the code name Emerald Sea, it is the result of a lengthy and urgent effort involving almost all of the company’s products. Hundreds of engineers were involved in the effort. It has been a key focus for new CEO Larry Page.”– Steven Levy, Inside Google+, Wired.com, Jun. 2010
25 PERCENT OF ALL GOOGLE EMPLOYEE BONUSES ARE BASED ON SOCIAL SUCCESS “According to a leaked memo from Google CEO Larry Page, the company is making its social efforts a top priority and will reward all employees if those products are a success — or dock everyone’s bonus if those efforts fail.” – Jolie O’Dell, Mashable.com, Apr. 2011
WHAT DIFFERENTIATES  GOOGLE+ FROM FACEBOOK?
HISTORICALLY, FACEBOOK = SOCIAL GOOGLE = UTILITY “Facebook's mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected” – Facebook.com “Google’s mission is to organize the world‘s information and make it universally accessible and useful” – Google.com
FACEBOOK TARGETS  AN AUDIENCE
Facebook Advertising gives brands the ability to target an audience according to demographics, interest, location and network.  http://www.facebook.com/ads
GOOGLE TARGETS A NEED
Google AdWordsgives brands the ability to target specific keywords based on what their customers are searching for. https://adwords.google.co.uk
BOTH RACE TO OFFERTHE IDEAL TARGETING EQUATION
WHAT AMI INTERESTED IN? WHO ARE MY FRIENDS, COLLEAGUES...? WHAT I NEED? WHO AM I? NEED + IDENTITY + INTEREST + NETWORK = PERFECT TARGETING
WITH GOOGLE+,GOOGLE IS ON ITS WAY TO PROVIDING BRANDS WITH THE PERFECT DATA SET
WHAT AMI INTERESTED IN? WHO ARE MY FRIENDS, COLLEAGUES...? WHAT I NEED? WHO AM I? NEED + IDENTITY + INTEREST + NETWORK = PERFECT TARGETING
“Google+ is making Google better, and FB's long-term aspirationsare much larger than social networking. Google+ can make Google stronger which makes it harder for FB to expand their vision.” – Tom Anderson, MySpace founder, Google+, 7.7.11
SO WHAT DO BRANDSNEED TO KNOW?
FOR STARTERS,GOOGLE+ IS FOCUSEDON PEOPLE, NOT BRANDS “The business experience we are creating should far exceed the consumer profile in terms of its usefulness to businesses. We just ask for your patience while we build it” – Christian Oestlien, Google+ Product Manager
BUT BRANDS WILL QUICKLY BECOME ACTIVE “We've gotten several thousands of applications to be in the test group since we opened it up last night (06.07.11)” – Christian Oestlien, Google+ Product Manager
SOME HAVE ALREADYLAUNCHED PROFILES
WHERE COULD GOOGLE+ GO? 7 “WHAT IF’S?” FROM US
#1.  WHAT IF GOOGLE+ ALLOWS BRANDS TO MANAGE THEIR AUDIENCE BY CIRCLES?
At the moment, brands have to manage their communities as one, giant group and must broadly treat all users in the same way.  With Google+Circles: Brands could spread tailored content to specific groups (advocates, haters, employees...) to provide tailored experiences.
#2.  WHAT IF THE +1 BECOMESA CORE PART OF THE GOOGLE SEARCH RANKING ALGORITHM?
SEO Google+1: The +1 button has already spread across many sites, allowing site owners to amplify their content. If Google uses +1 as a core ranking factor in search, most developers would instantly add to ensure their ranking is maintained.
#3.  WHAT IF GOOGLE COMBINED KEYWORD NEED VOLUMES WITH TARGET INSIGHT DATA?
At the moment, Google Adwords allows advertisers to target users through keywords without ideas about who they are Google+AdWords: Advertisers could find keywords used by their target audience and not only target volume, but also demographics as well
#4.  WHAT IF YOUTUBE ISCOMPLETELY PERSONALISEDTO EACH USER ON ARRIVAL?
Google+Youtube: Brands could use users’ information (age, gender, activity, searches, friends...) to display a tailored content right when the user arrives to their page.
#5.  WHAT IF GOOGLE MAPSSHOWS YOUR FRIENDS’OPINIONS ON PLACES?
Google+Maps: Brands could encourage users to check in using Google+ to help them curate their results for their friends in the future
#6.  WHAT IF GMAILCONNECTS USERS’ NEEDSWITH CONTACTS INTERESTS?
Google+Gmail: While users are reading their emails, contacts’ interests could be displayed and influence conversations  (i.e. ‘We see you are interested in a new smart phone, your friend shares the same interest and recently visited this site.)
#7.  WHAT IF GOOGLE ADWORDS BECOMES SOCIAL?
Google+Adwords: Adwords could use audience’s network to display ads recommended by friends and improve message impact.
GOOGLE+ SEEMS TO BE A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR MARKETERS
BUT REMEMBER THAT BETTER DATA FOR BRANDS MAY NOT MATCH USER PRIVACY EXPECTATIONS
“If Google mines what you do inside its social network to create a behavioural profile for ads outside of the social network, or use the profile they’ve created about you outside Google’s walls inside its social network, Facebook would have good reason to say that it’s ahead in the social networking privacy battle.  In other respects, however, they are neck-and-neck in unexpected uses of your data.” – Google+ vs. Facebook on Privacy, Wired.com, June 28, 2011

Google+ is here. What now?

  • 1. GOOGLE+ IS HERE. WHAT NOW? A few thoughts from Publicis Modem London
  • 2. ON JULY 7TH,GOOGLE LAUNCHED GOOGLE+ TO A SMALL GROUP OF TESTERS
  • 3. IN LESS THAN 3 WEEKS, GOOGLE+ ALREADY HAS MORE THAN 10 MILLION USERS - Larry Page
  • 4. WE’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT GOOGLE+ FOR BRANDS AND HOW IT COULD EVOLVE
  • 6. ACROSS THE GLOBE,USERS CHOOSE TO SPENDTHEIR DIGITAL TIME IN SOCIAL In December 2010, Europeans spent more time on Facebook.comthan on Google sites– comScore, dec. 2010
  • 7. AND DIGITAL AD SPEND HAS FOLLOWED THEM “In 2010, social media boosts UK online display by 27.5%” – IAB, mar. 2011
  • 8. SOCIAL HAS BECOMEA LUCRATIVE BUSINESSFOR MANY COMPANIES
  • 9. BECAUSE IT BUILDSMORE ROBUST USER PROFILESFOR THEM TO LEVERAGE. “We will record information about your activity — such as posts you comment on and the other users with whom you interact — in order to provide you and other users with a better experience on Google services”– Google+ Privacy Policy
  • 10. BETTER PROFILES GIVEBETTER ADS. BETTER ADS MEANS MORE REVENUE “By plugging Facebook’s social info into its own recommendation algorithm, Amazon can make even better recommendations; which translates to more purchases and higher revenue.” – Business Insider, Feb. 2011
  • 11. GOOGLE, HISTORICALLY AHEAD IN MANY DIGITAL SERVICES, IS BEHIND IN SOCIAL TECHNOLOGY While they have tried in the past with services like Wave and Buzz,they have failed to capture mass attention and usage.
  • 12. BUT GOOGLE+ IS ARGUABLYTHE MOST IMPORTANT SERVICE GOOGLE HAS LAUNCHEDSINCE SEARCH
  • 14. GOOGLE+ IS A SOCIAL NETWORK Users get a profile, a news stream, the ability to follow topics they are interested in (Sparks), create groups of friends (Circles), interact with them through video chat (Hangouts). Relationships on Google+ are asymmetric (Twitter-like), which means you can follow people who don’t have to follow you back.
  • 15. A user profile with friends list contains information like education, location, occupation and links.
  • 16. A stream, the core part of Google+, is where people share content and interact with one another. It is the core part of the social graph.
  • 17. Circles allow users to organize contacts into groups and spread them tailored content (wedding pictures with Friends and Family, Financial news with Colleagues...) based on what circle they are in. Interestingly, users cannot see what circles their connections have placed them in.
  • 18. Sparks to follow feeds of things users like. Although still in beta, sparks pulls in Google News information and will likely improve over time.
  • 19. And hangouts give users the ability to have a video chat with a maximum of 10 friends at once (Facebook video chat is a call between two people)
  • 20. WHY IS GOOGLE+ THE LINCHPIN OF GOOGLE’S BUSINESS STRATEGY?
  • 21. #1. USERS’ TIME SPENTON GOOGLE+ WILL PROVIDE GOOGLE WITH MORE DATA “For Google, everything that happens on the Internet is a complement to its main business. As people spend more time and do more things online, they see more ads and they disclose more information about themselves - and Google rakes in more money.” – Nicholas Carr, The Shallows, P. 160
  • 22. #2. GOOGLE+ WILL BECOME THE CORE OF GOOGLE’S SERVICES “The assumption is that everything will move over to usingthe Plus infrastructure over time” – Eric Schmidt, Google’s chairman
  • 23. MAPS SEARCH BLOGGER PICASA YOUTUBE ADWORDS GMAIL ANALYTICS CHROME ANDROID Google+ brings more social into other services, such as YouTube and Chrome, and will activate social data across other Google products that millions are already using.
  • 24. #3. GOOGLE HAS ALREADY MADEA HUGE INVESTMENT INTHE SUCCESS OF GOOGLE+ “Google+ is not a typical release. Developed under the code name Emerald Sea, it is the result of a lengthy and urgent effort involving almost all of the company’s products. Hundreds of engineers were involved in the effort. It has been a key focus for new CEO Larry Page.”– Steven Levy, Inside Google+, Wired.com, Jun. 2010
  • 25. 25 PERCENT OF ALL GOOGLE EMPLOYEE BONUSES ARE BASED ON SOCIAL SUCCESS “According to a leaked memo from Google CEO Larry Page, the company is making its social efforts a top priority and will reward all employees if those products are a success — or dock everyone’s bonus if those efforts fail.” – Jolie O’Dell, Mashable.com, Apr. 2011
  • 26. WHAT DIFFERENTIATES GOOGLE+ FROM FACEBOOK?
  • 27.
  • 28. HISTORICALLY, FACEBOOK = SOCIAL GOOGLE = UTILITY “Facebook's mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected” – Facebook.com “Google’s mission is to organize the world‘s information and make it universally accessible and useful” – Google.com
  • 29. FACEBOOK TARGETS AN AUDIENCE
  • 30. Facebook Advertising gives brands the ability to target an audience according to demographics, interest, location and network. http://www.facebook.com/ads
  • 32. Google AdWordsgives brands the ability to target specific keywords based on what their customers are searching for. https://adwords.google.co.uk
  • 33. BOTH RACE TO OFFERTHE IDEAL TARGETING EQUATION
  • 34. WHAT AMI INTERESTED IN? WHO ARE MY FRIENDS, COLLEAGUES...? WHAT I NEED? WHO AM I? NEED + IDENTITY + INTEREST + NETWORK = PERFECT TARGETING
  • 35. WITH GOOGLE+,GOOGLE IS ON ITS WAY TO PROVIDING BRANDS WITH THE PERFECT DATA SET
  • 36. WHAT AMI INTERESTED IN? WHO ARE MY FRIENDS, COLLEAGUES...? WHAT I NEED? WHO AM I? NEED + IDENTITY + INTEREST + NETWORK = PERFECT TARGETING
  • 37. “Google+ is making Google better, and FB's long-term aspirationsare much larger than social networking. Google+ can make Google stronger which makes it harder for FB to expand their vision.” – Tom Anderson, MySpace founder, Google+, 7.7.11
  • 38. SO WHAT DO BRANDSNEED TO KNOW?
  • 39. FOR STARTERS,GOOGLE+ IS FOCUSEDON PEOPLE, NOT BRANDS “The business experience we are creating should far exceed the consumer profile in terms of its usefulness to businesses. We just ask for your patience while we build it” – Christian Oestlien, Google+ Product Manager
  • 40. BUT BRANDS WILL QUICKLY BECOME ACTIVE “We've gotten several thousands of applications to be in the test group since we opened it up last night (06.07.11)” – Christian Oestlien, Google+ Product Manager
  • 42.
  • 43. WHERE COULD GOOGLE+ GO? 7 “WHAT IF’S?” FROM US
  • 44. #1. WHAT IF GOOGLE+ ALLOWS BRANDS TO MANAGE THEIR AUDIENCE BY CIRCLES?
  • 45. At the moment, brands have to manage their communities as one, giant group and must broadly treat all users in the same way. With Google+Circles: Brands could spread tailored content to specific groups (advocates, haters, employees...) to provide tailored experiences.
  • 46. #2. WHAT IF THE +1 BECOMESA CORE PART OF THE GOOGLE SEARCH RANKING ALGORITHM?
  • 47. SEO Google+1: The +1 button has already spread across many sites, allowing site owners to amplify their content. If Google uses +1 as a core ranking factor in search, most developers would instantly add to ensure their ranking is maintained.
  • 48. #3. WHAT IF GOOGLE COMBINED KEYWORD NEED VOLUMES WITH TARGET INSIGHT DATA?
  • 49. At the moment, Google Adwords allows advertisers to target users through keywords without ideas about who they are Google+AdWords: Advertisers could find keywords used by their target audience and not only target volume, but also demographics as well
  • 50. #4. WHAT IF YOUTUBE ISCOMPLETELY PERSONALISEDTO EACH USER ON ARRIVAL?
  • 51. Google+Youtube: Brands could use users’ information (age, gender, activity, searches, friends...) to display a tailored content right when the user arrives to their page.
  • 52. #5. WHAT IF GOOGLE MAPSSHOWS YOUR FRIENDS’OPINIONS ON PLACES?
  • 53. Google+Maps: Brands could encourage users to check in using Google+ to help them curate their results for their friends in the future
  • 54. #6. WHAT IF GMAILCONNECTS USERS’ NEEDSWITH CONTACTS INTERESTS?
  • 55. Google+Gmail: While users are reading their emails, contacts’ interests could be displayed and influence conversations (i.e. ‘We see you are interested in a new smart phone, your friend shares the same interest and recently visited this site.)
  • 56. #7. WHAT IF GOOGLE ADWORDS BECOMES SOCIAL?
  • 57. Google+Adwords: Adwords could use audience’s network to display ads recommended by friends and improve message impact.
  • 58. GOOGLE+ SEEMS TO BE A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR MARKETERS
  • 59. BUT REMEMBER THAT BETTER DATA FOR BRANDS MAY NOT MATCH USER PRIVACY EXPECTATIONS
  • 60. “If Google mines what you do inside its social network to create a behavioural profile for ads outside of the social network, or use the profile they’ve created about you outside Google’s walls inside its social network, Facebook would have good reason to say that it’s ahead in the social networking privacy battle. In other respects, however, they are neck-and-neck in unexpected uses of your data.” – Google+ vs. Facebook on Privacy, Wired.com, June 28, 2011
