Google+ vs. Facebook

Ryan Leslie
Check out this interesting article on Mashable: http://mashable.com/2011/10/04/google-needs-to-use-google-plus/ Here is a highlight snippet that REALLY surprised me: "Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt doesn’t even have a Google+ account, nothing short of an embarrassment when company bonuses are tied to social media success."

Hi Ryan, Saw that post as well. Not a big shock really...if I was worth a billion dollars, I don't think anyone would see me on a social network as well. Google admitted their early failures in social due to one key factor - the people at Google didn't have a need for social...they had a successful business, more $$ than anyone else and plenty of "real-life" social activity. Contrast that to Zuckerberg at the time he created (or stole) the idea of Facebook - he had a true need for an online social network because of his age and social awkwardness. It simply made more sense to him based on his stage in life at that time whereas Larry & Sergei didn't have that need (personally or professionally) Another key element of G+ is it's ability to become more of an identity network, rather than a "just" a social network platform. The folks at Google have already established themselves as trusted, authoritative figures - they can just start clicking +1 buttons and leverage their profiles. Google's social media success will come in the form of people clicking the +1 buttons from all over the Internet, not necessarily from their C-level execs sharing pics of their kids on the platform.
