UR Turn: Are You on Google+?

Despite what seems like user apathy, Google+ continues to move forward

UR Turn, Help me finish ths post by sharing...In talking about social media for authors, we’ve looked at Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Goodreads. What about Google+?

I’m on Google+, but I often wonder why.

Google+ began six years ago as a direct competitor to Facebook. That didn’t work out so well. Though I launched my page and played around with it, I didn’t get it.

Two years ago Google+ began shifting from a basic social networking site to a content curation site. I still don’t get it. But I’m still there.Do you use Google+? What do you like about it? Click To Tweet

And this year, they rolled out some new features.

Maybe someday I’ll understand how to use Google+ and begin to do something with it other than automatically post my blog entries.

I want to know what you think about Google+. Do you have a presence there? Do you use it? My page is https://plus.google.com/+PeterDeHaanAuthor
