Facebook – Google+ which will you choose?

Facebook – Google+  which will you choose?

I signed up for Google’s new social media platform, Google+, 3 months ago, back when it was by invite only, and while I liked what I saw, and got excited about it I just haven’t seen the activity I thought I would.

The people I know that seem to be in the know claim that with 5 million strong in just 3 months beta by invitation only that unlike Google’s previous entries into social media with, Buzz and Wave, Google+ is here to stay.

Don’t worry about Facebook disappearing anytime soon, but it will be interesting to see which is the king of social media in about 3 years from now. I reflect way back when we used to Yahoo everything, they were the big dog, and I still like Yahoo, but some little company, started up years after Yahoo, called Google absolutely dominates today and I believe that same company will do the same with social media, because they have to know that social media marketingis the wave of the future ( if you are a business owner, think of social media as word of mouth advertising – today ) so Google will go all out with Google+ to win as much market share as they can. In the mean time this competition will benefit the consumers, haven’t you noticed all the Facebook changes lately? They are both going to battle to provide more, to the consumer to win social media market share.

Having spent most of my adult life engaged in sales and marketing as well as a decade of preparing income tax returns for small businesses, individuals and real estate investors. Running your own business is not easy, you must utilize all the tools available to aid in your business development, I believe your personal development is equally important. I have for many years had knowledge and interest in small and medium sized businesses as it relates to allowable deductions, tax deferred exchanges and other tax treatments, I have also, for many years invested in books, tapes/cds for inspiration and motivation, so it seemed a natural fit for me to become involved in aiding in people in business development as well as their personal development.
