Google rolled out a brand new feature for its Google+ social network today, which brings the ability to form groups based around a specific interest, organization, or passion.What you think guys, Will it be popular as Facebook or LinkedIn groups ?
Chime in!

    I wrote a blog post explaining it all here that might give some newbies an idea on how to get around it. I love it so far!

    I want to try it. Hopefully it will work with my site. A community should be good like the FB.

    I really want to try it, but I'm afraid they're going to turn out like most internet marketing communities I try to join: full of spam. :T

    Google+ has a good prospect. The time is not so far when G+ will take the place of Facebook.

    This is what I've been waiting for from Google +. Definitely going to cut my Facebook time to close to nothing.

    That's very interesting. I think I better start checking my Google Plus account then.

    I saw a headline that G+ had 500million signed up. Was surprising. But wonder how many of those are actually regular users? I did start an acct but have not used it.

      You are not alone there NewParadigm. It's still awkward to use, maybe it's me though!

      Good question. Some are very active, practically addicted. I used it quite a bit in January, I am sort of back now.

      I don't see too many marketers there, and I somewhat doubt Google will be happy to see lots of them either, but I may be wrong.

    I actually prefer Google Plus to Facebook. I like its clean design and other features. I think the quality of people it attracts is better than on Facebook and I say so even though I am far from being Google's fan.

    The communities could be interesting, if only I could trust Google more ...

    So far, I find google+ akward and I see other people using it for their blog or biz but not for personal use so much. I use it about once a week but I use Facebook everyday. I get a lot of traffic from Facebook but can't tell about google +. Does anyone know how to tell on which traffic comes from google+ not google searches?

    It might be useful, but on a different note did anyone see that Facebook was down earlier today?

      I love the new Google communities. I became a member of a few social media marketing communities just to observe and see how fast they grew. It only took about a week for 2 of the communities to have 500 members. It seems like a strong active community of people and I think it can be valuable for business.

    I saw Google Plus featured on one of the news channels this week, so it seems to getting more and more exposure. I am definitely looking to put more time into the platform myself.

    Google has done great thing by creating a social media platform google plus but I think it is not much popular as other social platforms and does not give much benefit while using for SEO purpose with my experience.
