What is Google+ ? (Part 1)
Launched in June 2011, Google+ is a new social network by Google that allows individuals and businesses to connect. Google+ integrates some existing and familiar social media aspects, but adds some new and valuable twists.

This is Google's fourth attempt at developing a social media network. The previous efforts all failed. Orkut was launched in 2004, but was phased out and now operates only in Brazil. Google Friend Connect launched in 2008 and was finally officially shut down this month (March 2012). Google Buzz was launched in 2010, but quickly closed down in 2011.

So why is Google+ different? Why bother writing this article to tell you about it? At this point it appears Google+ may be here to stay, but it's a little too early to be certain. Regardless, it is worth learning about.

What we do know is Google+ is growing extremely fast. In January 2012 it was announced that Google+ already had over 90 million users. This is much faster than Facebook grew to that user level. According to independent analysis of its growth in December 2011, the site was adding an estimated number of 625,000 new users a day, which may total 400 million members by the end of 2012.

Next month we will explore the various features of Google+, and how businesses can leverage the platform for growth.

Buying or Selling a Dental Practice?
If you are considering buying or selling a dental practice we wanted to let our newsletter readers know about some upcoming events. Whether you are thinking of doing something this year, or in the next 3 to 5 years it is a good idea to prepare sooner than later.

There will be expert speakers covering all the critical topics of dental practice transitions including a dental practice transition broker, practice transition attorney, dental CPA, wealth management, and banking / lending experts.

In addition, Ian McNickle from WEO Media will be one of the featured speakers. Ian will be discussing the importance of a solid marketing program, what to do, and how to implement it. A solid marketing program makes new practices grow faster, and existing practices more attractive to buyers.

Seminar Dates
• July 13-14, 2012 at the beautiful Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum, WA
• August 3-4, 2012 at the stunning Sunriver Resort in Sun River, OR
