The Google+ Project; Will Mountain View Get It Right This Time?


A quick look at the first pieces of the Google+ project.

Will the rumors about Google+ come to fruition? The only people that REALLY know are the Googlers working in the Mountain View, CA Googleplex... However, as an observer of this team since 1999 I am also one of Google's biggest fans (literally) and I am eagerly anticipating what Google+ will provide for those of us involved with Automotive Social Media Marketing. 


The following is taken from the Google+ online publication that Google is using to capture early interest and potential beta tester information.  I have signed up and I encourage all ADM Professiona Community members to do so as well. -- RP


Sharing is a huge part of the web, a part that we think could be a lot simpler. That’s why we’ve been working on adding a few new things to Google: to make connecting with people on the web more like connecting with them in the real world. We hope you like what we’ve cooked up so far. And stay tuned, because there’s more to come. Take a tour



You share different things with different people. But sharing the right stuff with the right people shouldn’t be a hassle. Circles makes it easy to put your friends from Saturday night in one circle, your parents in another, and your boss in a circle by himself, just like real life.


Remember when your Grandpa used to cut articles out of the paper and send them to you? That was nice. That’s kind of what Sparks does: looks for videos and articles it thinks you’ll like, so when you’re free, there’s always something to watch, read, and share. Grandpa would approve.


Bumping into friends while you’re out and about is one of the best parts of going out and about. With Hangouts, the unplanned meet-up comes to the web for the first time. Let buddies know you’re hanging out and see who drops by for a face-to-face-to-face chat. Until we perfect teleportation, it’s the next best thing.


Instant Upload

Taking photos is fun. Sharing photos is fun. Getting photos off your phone and on to the web is pretty much the opposite of fun. That’s why we created Instant Upload: so that from now on, your photos upload themselves. You don’t even have to say ‘cheese’.


  Watch video

Texting is great, but not when you’re trying get six different people to decide on a movie. Huddle takes care of it by turning all those different conversations into one simple group chat, so everyone gets on the same page long before thumbs get sore.

It will be interesting to see how closely tied the various types of Google+ functionality will be with your Gmail account... Will your "Contacts" be the pool of people from which you can assign to each "Circle"?

Keep in mind that Google+ is a lot more than the Google+1 search site recommendations application... I am already seeing confusion amongst people with the similarity in naming convention.

It appears to have video calling? Something that I would have thought Facebook would have acquired as part of their service already, yes you can record video's and post them to your newsfeed or add as a comment to someone profile but incorporating Skype Like application to the social network is very exciting. I can't wait to try it out!

Do you feel that perhaps this is aimed at a specific demographic as the key USP is the ability to keep your personal information safe?

Actually, I think this may be a success for Google.  Of course it's all in the implementation.  It's not like you have to choose between Google and Facebook.  I think people will like Circles and Sparks.  Privacy is important and anything that lets you combine family, friends, and professional acquaintances and yet "easily" separate them and the content they see will go over big.  Anxious to see it.  Thanks Ralph!

this is going help revolutionize relevancy, reiterate ratings and reviews. This is a new channel that needs to be added to your digital strategy mix.

Google Plus 1 will make it easier to find out what you are looking for and see if your trusted friends have approved what you are searching for. Get recommendation on things you like when you want them. It’s totally non intrusive and limits the noise of advertising.

Thanks Manuel... Get in while you can, who knows how long before Google asks me to take this down!
