Google+. LinkedIn. Google+. LinkedIn. I have been jumping from one to the other for the past few weeks and I think I finally have an answer as to which is better and that answer is BOTH. I don't think one is better than the other I just think they are different. I think that both networks can satisfy different part of your marketing and can work in conjunction with each other. Now if the question is which will you find yourself spending more time on I will say Google Plus.
Why would Google+ have me spending more time there? I think it boils down to interaction. There seems to be more people willing to engage on Google+ communities than on the Group pages of LinkedIn. For the past few years I have gotten emails from LinkedIn with new discussions and old discussion points. I also get emails from LinkedIn when people respond to a topic that I have posted on. The comments are added but they never really seem to be engaging. I very rarely see a response that says: Jason - I agree with your point about how leveraging Google Plus is important to my business, espcially here in Dallas. Now with Google+ I see this constantly. There seems to be more engagement on that side of hte social media spectrum which led me to this question:
Are People More Engaging On Google+ Because Of The +1?
