Why Google Plus Is Better Than Facebook?

7 Reasons Why Google Plus Is Better Than Facebook?

Google plus has made a head start in the social networking arena. It’s been only eight months and Google plus has already touched the 100 million mark in February 2012. With further estimates that Google may reach 400 million users by the end of 2012, it is all set to give tough fight to the present social networking leader- Facebook. Let us now analyze some reasons how Google plus fares over Facebook?

Clean And Simple Design

Google plus has a clean, simplistic yet productive design which has become one of the main reason why most of the people prefer Google plus over Facebook. Also unlike Facebook, Google plus pages are free from those annoying advertisements!

Circles

In facebook, you are either friends with someone or not. Google plus on the other hand understands that there are lots of other relations in the real world other than friends and provides you the option to add people based on these relations. (Family, acquaintance, co-workers, crushes or whatever you want to add)

Google Plus In Mobile Devices

Nowadays people are using mobile devices like Smart phones and tablet PCs more than before and more so for social networking. Although Facebook provides its own Facebook mobile application; however, it is no match against the huddle application provided with Google plus. It is fast and integrates well with mobile OS especially if it is an android device. Also it provides chat function to communicate with people on G+.

Hangout

Google plus provides the hangout option where you can make video calls, which is pretty much similar to facebook with the new Skype integration. However there is one major difference- unlike facebook, one can chat with up to ten people in the Google plus hangout at a given time. This can be helpful in video conferencing.

Game Updates And Requests

Facebook walls are filled with irritating messages like- ‘so and so has reached level 3 in so and so ville’, ‘so and so sent you a request to send them a gift’ etc. which sometimes can get quite annoying. Google stream on the other hand strictly means business.

Integration With Email, Documents And Other Services

The best thing about any Google plus product is that it is integrated with others so well that you can easily seamlessly change from one to another, so you can easily change your status while you are sending email.

Facebook Groups

Join related groups. So if you are promoting a job board, then your main audience are job seekers and recruiters. So search for these keywords, like Jobs , recruiters, job board etc and join these groups.

 

Once you joining request is approved, then you can target your audience . Try joining many groups, like 20-30 groups, or may be 7-8 groups in a day.

a)
