Don’t Be Stranded

Google Plus is one of the newest ways to engage in social networking and is beneficial for businesses to use. This service allows Google users to create groups that they can communicate with. Those groups are called circles and users can create circles that consist of different groups of people. For example, a company could create one circle for their employees and one circle for their clients. This allows for specialized communications that can help a business target their audience of consumers or target a specific subset of the company’s employees.
