Our Take on Google+

E-learning Uncovered

If I were to start over, I could see using Google+ over Facebook or Twitter. But the problem is, I’m NOT starting over. JU: I think it’s the best of Twitter plus the best of Facebook. But Google+ also encourages deeper communication by having no character limit and keeping the whole conversation in one place (one strength of Facebook). The comparison to Facebook is tougher. I’ve never been a fan of adding professional contacts in Facebook.

We have intranets, we have time entry systems, we have our office productivity apps, we have our browsers, we have LMSs.the problem is that we dont use all these systems all of the time and even when we are using these systems, we are typically not using all the parts of a system every time we access it.

However between Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, iTunes and all the other growing social networking platforms, this can be a daunting task. If it’s on Facebook, do Facebook things. Facebook viewers tend to watch videos more passively; so edited videos need to be shorter (20 seconds to a minute long). There is not always a one-size-fits all video and Facebook is a great way to reach many because there are so many more choices. Start with Facebook Live.
