Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn: Battle of the Social Networks

In the business world, having a social media platform for marketing, relationships, and transactions is no longer an extraneous item, it is a necessity for survival. And with all these blooming new networks, how the heck are we supposed to choose the best party room for all the business meetings?
Just like everything else in this country, competition is key. As you well know, for small businesses and companies, the most prominent social networks available are LinkedIn, Facebook, and now Google+. We hear you saying, “Little Jack! help us make sense of this confusion! What do we do?!” Rest easy, friends, we’re not completely clairvoyant, butsome people think they can predict the future of the business world pretty accurately.
PC World is not the only one who has been making this claim. A lot of people are placing their bets on the new Google+ Business Page set up. Why? It’s convenient! It’s got more gadgets and goodies than your old Facebook engine had when you started that rusty old thing up at the beginning of the millennium. From all the talk we’ve been hearing, it seems like the Google+ Business Page is set up for easy access on all the things you could ever need: communication, commerce, contacts, everything. It’s really a whole new level of social media.
At the other corner of the ring, it looks like the old FB is a pretty hefty contender. Some sayFacebook may have more success with Business marketing simply because it has the bigger numbers. For example, the BMW FB page has close to 6.7 million fans, while the G+ BMW page has less than 400 fans to date. Of course, Google+ is just a kid up against a veteran in social media arena. There are still a few things to learn.
But now back to YOU. Putting your money, time, and energy into one of these networks is a bit of a commitment. Each small to midsize business will need to assess their own needs and then make an informed decision. Business 2 Community has already detailed all the information you need to consider. Thanks, guys.
Well, there you have it, friends. A lot of strength and potential out there. Looks like it’s gonna be an interesting game and we’re excited to see who comes up strong.
