|Google+ is the social network tied to the top search engine.|
That's got to count for something, right?
I've heard people describe Google+ as a mix between Facebook and Twitter, and I don't think that's too far off the mark. Personally, I think it's still growing, which can be a good and bad thing.
The good news is that you could still be one of the first G+-users on the block; bad news is that you have to wait (and hope) for other people to migrate over to the block. Of course, Google has a huge reach online, so there's no reason to doubt that people will migrate...eventually.
Oh yeah, here are those Google+ Tips for Writers I mentioned above (click here).
As with Facebook and LinkedIn, keep these tips in mind:
- Complete your profile completely. Use your name. Provide easy to find contact information. Describe who you are.
- Use an image of yourself. Not a cartoon. Not an animal. Not a piece of art. Remember that people like to connect with other people.
- Post new content regularly. Let people know you are using your account. That means connecting with other G+'ers as well.
