Can Google+ be useful for IM?
« on: October 07, 2011, 09:39:35 PM »
Google+ is now open to everyone in the US from what I currently know and I was wondering if you guys think it could be a helpful tool in the IM world? I happen to think it seems like a more professional social networking site. Basically seems like more business. What do you guys think?

It's really more for families and has features best suited to them so it's harder to market products as the market at Google+ aren't always into buying products from strangers, and conversion rates have been pretty low.

I've tried Google+ for IM and don't really recommend it to be honest. I tried selling laptops ad gadgets but I got no conversions at all, people just aren't willing to buy things on it unlike Facebook/Twitter.

Currently there is not much use of Google+ in IM. Things may change in the future.
