Google+ threw me for a loop the first time I used it. I had been able to master every other social networking site quickly, but with so many different features, I was a little bit overwhelmed. I dismissed it quickly, but have recently decided to utilize it as a tool for marketing myself in a professional way on the Internet. My Facebook and my Twitter accounts are very casual. I interact with friends/family on those websites, so I don't feel the need to sell myself there. Google+ is my way of still connecting with those people, but limiting how much my personal life effects my profile.
I definitely think we'll be seeing a rise in profiles this year! Info-graphics already show the increase in movement towards Google+. It is Google, after all. A multinational corporation. The most visited website on the Internet. We didn't think they'd let Facebook run the market on social media forever, did we?
