What is Google+ ? (Part 3)
Last month we discussed some of the key features of Google+ including Circles and Hangouts. This month we'll wrap up our discussion of Google + with some additional features and our recommendations.

Messenger: This feature is available on Android, iPhone, and SMS devices for communicating through instant messaging within Circles. Additionally, you can now share photos using Messenger between your Circles.

Sparks: This feature enables users to identify topics they might be interested in sharing with others. Sparks help keep users informed of the latest updates on the topics of their interest.

Perhaps the most well known feature of Google+ is the +1 button. The +1 button lets people recommend sites and sections of webpages, which is similar to the Facebook "Like" button. Recent data from Google showed the +1 button is now being used more than 5 billion times per day. While Google maintains that +1 will not affect directly search results, it is likely to influence them over time.

Google+ has been one of the fastest growing social media networks over the last couple years. Does that mean we are recommending our clients to jump on board and get involved with Google+? Not yet.

While we believe Google+ has a lot of potential, we still see some reasons for caution due to decreasing user engagement numbers, and slowing growth rate. The main challenge we believe Google+ will have is that it is very similar to Facebook and may not have enough significant differences to lure people away from Facebook. In addition, as Facebook monitors what is popular on Google+ they are likely to offer similar features on Facebook.

So at this time we recommend a wait and see approach with Google+. We'll keep you posted if our recommendation changes.
