Google+ vs. Facebook

The most recent mutation of Facebook seems to have more people in an uproar than after previous mutations. And it’s not over yet (but since social media is always evolving we shouldn’t be surprised).

Next is “Timeline”:

Zuckerberg, Facebook creator explains that Timeline is, “the story of your life,” significantly altering the way people’s information is shown on the world’s leading social network, presenting “all your stories, all your apps, and a new way to express who you are.

As of today:

I am not sure if I will enable Timeline or not for my personal profile but would love to that option for business pages. One could highlight and showcase important business events such as product launches including photos and videos, customer feedback and customer service, events, human resources news and more.

People are considering Google+ as an alternative to Facebook as the recent changes and repeated privacy concerns are leaving some users displeased. I have decided to cautiously use Google+ while I decide how I should use it. I am leaning toward using Google+ as an additional place to have a business profile. A site that feels friendlier than linked in and not as noisy as Facebook. To that end I probably have to go back and rethink my Google+ circles.

It is anything but boring when working in social media and the plethora of choices can only mean that one has to really consider why they are engaged in social media.
