Google Plus Can Help You Build Your Online Business
So you thought Skype on Facebook was the next best thing after sliced bread? Well, you were wrong…at least until u come across Google Plus. Whereas Google Plus is not exactly up there with Facebook, it is well on its way up, what with almost two hundred million active subscribers worldwide. In addition to Skype on Facebook and FaceTimes on Apple, Google now offers account holders unique video chatting on computers and mobile devices with front-facing cameras. The unique Hangouts feature, like Skype on Facebook, is videoconferencing via social network.
Since the advent of social media, several companies have developed digital software that allow for transmission of voice and live image over the internet. These softwares are downloaded, purchased and installed or inbuilt into mobile telephony gadgets and personal computers. Literally, any gizmo with internet connectivity these days can accommodate any of these drivers.
Moreover, the potential is immense. You no longer have to make a personal visit to have a face-to-face conversation with a business partner, loved ones, friend, or a casual acquaintance. You can chat, share photographs, video links, wed, make love, and pray…virtually anything apart from fighting and making babies!
Google Plus – Another Plus for Social Media
Initially, there was Skype, then followed FaceTime by Apple…and now there is Google Plus. This a social media network with features that set it apart from the rest of the crowd.
First, it is extremely easy to set up, just create a Google profile for yourself, click on “About Google Plus” icon, enter your attributes, interests, and anything else you want people to know about you. Select the contacts you would want to link up with, friends, family, colleagues, church members, villagers, clansmen, compatriots, etc. Run through and join Common Interest Groups (CIGs) or communities, upload photos, videos and links and decide whom to share what with!
The second unique feature about Google Plus is the “Congregation” of common interest communities. Apart from the general public feature, the community feature allow masons, welders, soccer fans, rugby fanatics, bird watchers to form groups and commune within the confines of their shared interests! What the hell, Catholics can even form and run a Small Christian Community or “a Jumuiya” via Google Plus!
This feature allows you to assign circles, brackets or groups to your contacts, e.g. family, colleagues, University alumni, so that when you undertake a certain activity, you can decide which category of contact you want to allow to view it. In this way, you can safely upload dirty jokes and share with “drinking” friends only. Uploaded political speeches need not reach your mother-in-law if she is not a Democrat!
Lastly, the one application that is, at least for now, unique to Google plus is the hangouts feature. This technology allows for families and groups to communicate via video linkage and synchronize group activities. Through hangouts application feature, groups of people can hold a joint demonstration in different parts of the world, celebrate mass with the pope, or World Cup final together, share great family moments like funerals, christenings, weddings, etc, all done in real time!
A New Era in Teleconference With Google Plus
Even though majority of internet consumers have tended to utilize the unique technological innovations for leisure, their potential for revolutionizing the serious aspects of our lives is immense. Immediately one understand how Google Plus works, several applications come to mind: for instance, on dating business it will no longer be necessary to chat up a sixty-year old grandma posing as a sixteen year old virgin; just ask them to switch to Google Plus! This application is just about revolutionize the dating scene and give Skype on Facebook a run for its money!
Forget Skype on Facebook, Google Plus is the next biggest thing
With the group hangouts applications, congregations all over the world will be able to fellowship together in joint prayer meeting. Pilgrims going to Mecca need not hold high their stamped Visa on return to prove their attendance, they will easily commune with friends and family back home via this social media while there in real time!
Many more millions are going to join their counterparts at St. Peter’s Square at The Vatican for the holy Mass via this technology, from today hence. The World Cup-2014 Finals in Brazil next year is going to take a very different aura to millions of soccer fans all over the world. The hangouts application feature in this technology will significantly alter the scenario for viewers and soccer lovers the world over.
Jokes aside, Google Plus allows serious business on its platform. Family Groups will now be able to share a birth by cesarean section, Scientist will share in the launch of a revolutionary innovation and lectures, and classes administered via this technology.
What is even more interesting is that unlike Skype, Google Plus is that it is free and allows up to ten participants at a go! Any user with Android or iPhone can digitally hangout!
