Google Plus: 7 Reasons Why You Should Give It A Try
  • Buffer

We are both active on social media.  We enjoy the interaction and the sharing.  One social networking platform that we have been learning to use is Google Plus. We were one of the lucky few who got to test it in its early stages and we are still learning our way around it and having fun in the process.

Google Plus maybe viewed by some as another time waster, specially if you are already updating your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Empire Avenue, Flickr and blogs.  Today, Google plus has over 43 million users (source) compared to Facebook’s over 700 million users and Twitter’s over 250 million users (source) but is steadily growing. People think it’s a Facebook and Twitter killer, but we beg to disagree.  We feel that the individual platforms have their own unique selling proposition.

One of the aims of is to share our experience on the many social networks out there and in the video below we share our seven reasons you should give Google Plus a try.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed producing it together.


There you go, our 7 reasons to be on Google Plus.  For those who have not signed up, we do hope you give it a try.  For those who are already active on Google Plus, we invite you to share your experience with us here by leaving a comment.  We would love to hear from you.  You can also add us to your circles ( G+) and ( G+).
