  32. 32. What’s Google Got To Do With It?Google +/ +1 Fact Sheet: • 3 arenas for business: Sparks(what’s trending), circles (allows for segmentation of content), and hangouts (chat live with up to 10 ppl and stream it) • Has the potential to be more authoritative then a Facebook ―like‖ • Currently Google+ is only open to individuals not brands, but many companies are appointing a brand ambassador • Google+ is not another social destination site and will continue to enhance synergy between search and social • Google+1 can currently be embedded into any owned digital asset11/8/2011 32
  33. 33. Google + and Its Implications• Currently Google does not have access to Facebook data, so it is possible a +1 could be more authoritative then a like.• Circles provide marketers with the ability to segment their network out into a social database that will allow for hyper customization and targeted messaging.• Integration: a user could +1 a paid search add, then the brands Google + page appears and user is prompted to join the brands page, they receive rich, branded, and highly targeted content, and ultimately that brand will have an influence on that users search experience.• +1 generates a ―earned‖ impression and your sites content will benefit from Google’s indexing of these social search signals.11/8/2011 33
