Google+: View post on Google+
This post was first made on the Richard Hearne Google+ profile.
My 2 cents on where Google+ should be going >> forget about FB, and being social for all things. Concentrate on business >> business pages, build this out as the B2B, B2C social media platform.
They have a growing audience from business because of the knowledge panel >> now offer the tools, social tools

I think you're probably right Tim. Alas I wonder if it might be too little, too late? With the focus on revenue you'd have to think they might just can parts of Google+ rather than keep it afloat.
It's all kinda sad since Google+ is the only social network I like to frequent. Hate FB with a passion.

Yep, G+ is the place for me too, FB just rubs me the wrong way.
Revenue opportunities are there if they took it down the Business social road >> every business online, would want a piece of it.
I hope they see sense

That articles was posted in 2012, the change in strategy in my view is paying off. In my view Google+ was never meant to be a social platform to topple facebook, but instead a unified login spine for all google products. Which allows for a better user experience and better ad targeting.
