So it’s been exactly a month and 2 days since I posted the first article Google+ vs Facebook: Kicking @$$ on the Internet. And I have to say that my predictions were correct.
I predicted that on Google + my rate of personal connections with others would multiply at a much faster rate than my Facebook account.
I was also very certain that with the higher rate of connections developed with Google+ – I would have a better rate of response for my product (book.)
In both cases, I was correct. Taking a look at my Google+ account- I now have over 2600+ people who have added me in their circles. This does not include all the people I have added in my circles- 4819. All of these people have access to my posts and can see whatever information, articles, ideas I post in their stream.
If you take a look at my Facebook account- I only have 678 people who have added me or accepted my friendship. This does not include the groups that I am a member of who can sometimes see my posts.
When I have utilized both Facebook and Google+ to advertise my ideas/products- Google+ has provided far more hits than Facebook on a daily basis.
My conclusion is that Google+, if used correctly, provides a much better platform to advertise your ideas.
One cautionary note: With any social network platform it is important to post interesting topics that draw people in. Posting constant advertisements only pushes away people who might otherwise be interested in what you have to offer. People want to get to know you. Make certain to post things that show your personality and you will be certain to draw people who appreciate you and what you have to offer.
