Google+ is a bold move by the company that has become term synonymous with internet search, to take on Facebook the social networking giant. At first Google+ seemed to be a genuine threat, but some of their fundamental differences aren't luring users away from Facebook. One of the fundamental differences is that Facebook is about sharing and relating to one another while Google+ emphasizes connections to each other.
One of the clear strengths of Google+ is integration into Google's other software and products.

Although you can post links to Facebook, Google's user experience design team can make the process seamless so that with one click a user can post additions to an album or a new blog post across all of the Google realm including Google+.

Accounts on Facebook, MySpace or Google+ can yield substantial gains with relatively little effort.
Google+ is Google's latest foray into the social networking world. Though Google claims that Google+ will not compete with Facebook, the similarities between the two services are striking. Both feature a photograph of the user and include photos and recent posts. Both networks feature a feed of information that displays updates from other users.
Despite these similarities, Google+ differs from Facebook: Google added features to Google+ that make it superior to Facebook in certain important ways. In particular, internet marketing is easier and better on Google+ for several...
Social media marketing is a very important aspect of a successful marketing campaign. Business owners who do not utilize social media sites in their marketing strategy are not as successful as business owners who properly use social media sites like Facebook and Twitter in their strategy.
