Why Google’s screwup on Google+ brand pages is a big deal There’s been a lot of sound and fury about the way Google has approached branded (i.e., non-personal) pages on its new Google+ social network.

But there is a serious issue underneath the griping, which is that Google can make or break a company’s presence online by virtue of its control over the web-search market — something Google+ is almost certain to become an integral part of.
High performance access to file storage It has been nine years since Google debuted its experimental website where it dumped prototype products for netizens to play with. But the company has now announced the end-of-the-line for its Labs project. The ad broker's CEO Larry Page hinted last week that he would slash and burn (or, in his words, "simplify and streamline") Google's product lines.

By: Gini Dietrich | July 18, 2011 | There is something going on in the social media world that is really bothering me. The “experts” are taking advantage of people who feel like they’re going to be left behind if they don’t figure out Google+. Now. And, because we all are limited in our time, people are shelling out money to have someone teach them how to use the tool. Stop it. Beware the Google+ Experts
The inspiration for this post came from Jason Huebel, having written about leaving FriendFeed behind for Google+ engagement. Google+ is the new black. So, is anybody else abandoning FriendFeed, Empire Avenue, Facebook, etc. for Google’s latest social effort? Do you see yourself decreasing the amount of time you spend on any other platform over the coming weeks? To me, I suppose, it’s a balancing act – and each silo has its merits. FriendFeed vs Twitter vs Facebook vs Google+

Why Can’t You Search Google+ On Google+? One of the most counter-intuitive details about Google’s new social network is that you can’t actually search for public posts from it.

The latter also has the added boon of searching Buzz and Reader posts. But why not offer the feature on the platform itself?
