I’ve been slowly playing with Google plus, here’s my profile, feel free to add me to a circle. Of course I’m not as ever present as Robert Scoble, the guy is a magnet for followers on any platform he joins. Watch below as he tests his capabilities to generate white noise on Google Plus.
I am sitting on the banks of the Snake River showing a bunch of geeks Google+. Say hi. They want to see how much noise can happen due to the rapid comments here.Wow, in about three minutes 263 comments came in. This is just mind blowing.UPDATE: We’re in Jackson Hole, Wyoming with a bunch of CEOs and VCs for an offsite. So far 500 comments in just a matter of minutes. The folks watching this are blown away.
UPDATE2: Looks like there is a limit of 500 comments here. We reached that limit in less than 10 minutes. Wacky.
This is of course not everyone’s experience, most of us mere social mortals simply look for a few comments etc…I give you this post by Margie Clayman
who was explaining how she is somewhat frustrated by the large gap between the influencers on Google Plus and the rest of us. Her advice is to rather than chase the big names, communicate with everyday folks. I completely agree. Communicate with people you have something in common with. If that isn’t Scoblizer or some other big name in social that’s ok, at least it is for me. Good post Margie, glad I found your blog. Also, judging by the response to your post, you clearly have an audience that cares, you seem to be doing quite well.
As for me and Google Plus, I’m truly undecided on it at this point. I’m not saying I don’t like it, just some personal preference stuff on the usability side that I’ll have to get used to. Much of this will come from using it more I think. Using it more might help me get more brand awareness like Mr Kawasaki, here’s Guy Kawasaki’s Google Plus stats page
What is it about Google plus you like and don’t like…are you discouraged that you don’t have a bunch of friends in circles etc?
P.S. Here’s a cool page with tips
on how to get the most out of Google Plus when you just getting started.
