There are lots of choices with social media these days.
Facebook has the lion’s share of active users and activity. I’ve had a few techno-geek friends suggest that Google+ is up and coming and even better than Facebook.
I’ve been on G+ for quite a while now, and I just don’t see it. I find the G+ interface cumbersome and SLOW. And, it’s basically a ghost town.
I just read a news story (published today) on a major online news source. At the bottom, was the now-common set of buttons by which readers can share the article. I couldn’t help noticing a glaring difference among them. I think the tally for each pretty much says it all when comparing the activity of the big players in social media:
Google+ has 0.3% (zero-point-three!) of the activity that Facebook has.
So, how should you allocate your time and efforts when it comes to promoting your practice in social media? The numbers are on the wall.
So far, G+ = big yawn. I’ll keep trying it. But, so far, no good.
