The Rise Of Google +

The Rise of Google PlusA lot of talking takes place on the web these day whether Google + is going to become the second social network giant next to Facebook or not.

In my opinion Google+ has a very good chance to make it this time after being rather unsuccessful with Google Wave and Google Buzz.

You Gov announced the results of a Bloomberg / You Gov survey and here are some stunning statistics:

Google+

Already 13% of adult Internet users in the US have signed up for a Google+ account with another 9% planning to sign up in the next 12 months.  Those signing up are also highly engaged:

  • 45% of users report reading content once a day or more (only Facebook’s 62% is higher among social networks)
  • 46% of Google+ users report creating content (e.g., creating updates; posting links) at least once a week.  This is on par with Twitter (42%) – which focuses on easy content creation

Jeff Bullas has been blogging about this subject recently. Read his blog posts.

Read This Before Our Next Meeting by Al Pittampalli

After reading the manifesto “Read This Before Your Next Meeting” by Al Pittampali I am more than happy to support spreading this truly Modern Meeting Revolution.

Fed up with Convenience Meetings?

Fed up with Formality Meetings?

Fed up with Social Meetings?

It’s time to start learning about the Modern Meeting Revolution.

The Seven Principles of Modern Meetings

  1. The Modern Meeting supports a decision that has already been made.
  2. The Modern Meeting moves fast and ends on schedule.
  3. The Modern Meeting limits the number of attendees.
  4. The Modern Meeting rejects the unprepared.
  5. The Modern Meeting produces committed action plans.
  6. The Modern Meeting refuses to be informational. Reading memos is mandatory.
  7. The Modern Meeting works only alongside a culture of brainstorming.

Your Action Plan

  1. Download and read the manifesto Read This Before Our Next Meeting.
