Google+, Life, the Universe, & Everything (Google)

Mark Traphagen from Stone Temple Consulting will talk about the maturing of Google's social vision as G+ enters its fourth year. He will cover how deeply integrated its' become in all of Google, why Google considers it a smashing success even if pundits don't, where it fits into Google's plans for the semantic search age, and most importantly, how marketers and businesses can take advantage to increase their reach and visibility.

    Thanks for the great presentation, Mark. I'm looking to see how to set up a g+ business page without having to provide my address. Once that's figured out, I can proceed to do nothing (just like I do with Facebook and Twitter). Thanks also to Frank for handling the hangout.

    Thanks Mark for opening my eyes. I learned a lot, but so much more I need to know! Have to try and figure out which social media to prioritize and the best bang for the buck!

    what's the youtube link? Audio on Google app is terrible!

    August 26, 2014

    • Frank C J.

      It's the same stream on Google and YouTube. However, you can ask questions on the Google page. I'll have to work on getting a better audio feed for future events.

      August 26, 2014

    • Pamela St. P.

      Thanks Frank. I tried on YouTube too. Audio not any better... not sure why I thought it might be :) Again, thanks to all of you for bringing this together tonight. My fault for not being able to get there live...

    Is this meeting being held on Vogsphere and Mark is going to read Vogon poetry to us?
    For those that haven't a clue what we are talking about Google "The Hitcher's guide to the Galaxy." An altogether remarkable book. Remember, Don't Panic.
    P.S. Marks' presentations are always great. I suggest you Don't Miss It.

      “The Somebody Else's Problem field is much simpler and more effective, and what's more can be run for over a hundred years on a single torch battery. This is because it relies on people's natural disposition not to see anything they don't want to, weren't expecting, or can't explain.”

      Basically my whole talk next week.
