I agree g+ is more of a marriage between reddit and an RSS feed for the way I use it. My friends that share great content I welcome the narcissistic ones that rant about what negative things happened today can remain on fb and twitter.

Yet Another "Google+ Is Dying" MSM Article

Oh God. I think I'm going to be sick.

I'm so tempted to rant at journalists like +Amir Efrati for perpetuating this stupid myth that Google+ is a ghost town. If you're one of the thousands in my circles, you're one of millions who know that's not true.

But today I'm not going to rant at pile-on tech writers like +Amir Efrati. I'm going to turn my anger at Google.

Hello +Vic Gundotra +Louis Gray +Bradley Horowitz – why why why do you allow Google's marketing team to keep marketing Google+ as "Facebook just maybe slightly better"? Why why why do you not see what millions of us who use it and love it understand: Google+'s secret weapon is that it is not just "another social network." STOP trying to get people to bring their same friends they have on Facebook over here. IT'S NOT WORKING.

Please please please start marketing Google+ as what it is: the world's most incredible discovery engine. The great power of Google+ is not yet another way to follow celebrities and keep up with Aunt Susie. The power here is in the ability to discover and engage with thousands of new people from all over the world who are interested in what you're interested in.

Google: You're killing Google+ with your useless "suggested user list" that directs people to people they'll never get to engage with. Use what you're good at! Trust the algorithms! Connect new people with hundreds of people in their interest graph who are actually using Google+ and engaging every day.

Google+ users: If you agree, please share this. Copy it to as many influential people in Google as you can, or write your own message. If Google won't save Google+, maybe we can.

TV network for dogs?

My wife used to leave the TV on for the dogs in the day, when we left, but there is no way I am paying $4.99 a month for them to watch what researchers say dogs like to watch. I know they have a target market out there that buys their dogs Filet Mignon but my dogs will stick to Beniful and comedy central.

Best line of this article: "Marketers need to shift from delivering campaign success to delivering business success." It doesn't matter how many followers the campaign garnered if those new followers never translate to profits.

Research has shown that email delivers more visitors than social

This is very likely because people receiving your emails have specifically said they want to receive this type of email from you. Social media is usually a conversation had on the platform. Use social influence and relationships to get signups for your email campaign. The win win.
