[Twitter] Have Brand Pages given Google+ New Life?
The company announced that it was working on a business version of the platform that would essentially allow brands to have at it and approach it as they would a Facebook page, Twitter account, or LinkedIn profile. As far as the social space is concerned, Google+ just may go on to be the story of 2011. After all, it has been surrounded by more hype than we have seen in a long while. When the platform was unveiled back in June, many pundits in the tech community actually believed it could be a viable competitor to social giant Facebook. Opening the Doors. That time has come.

of Fortune 500 CEOs use Twitter. You know what this is right? Earlier this week, my pal Gini Dietrich (even though she has zero skills in Draw Something , we are still cool) wrote a post showcasing social media usage by CEOs in the Fortune 500. Unsurprisingly the usage in this group was quite low: 3.8% of these CEOs are on Facebook. of them are on LinkedIn – not surprising given their role in partnerships and recruiting.8% are on Google+ – Larry Page is the leader in the clubhouse1.2% contribute to blogs. are on Pinterest.
