You might think of Google+ as other networking sites which take up too much of your time and give too little in return. Well, you are wrong.

Google+ has redefined itself in the social networking world over a period. Now, it has become a name that people can associate their lives with.

Google+ was launched at the perfect timing. It came at the time when it had learned and watched the development and rise of Facebook. Facebook came into being 6 years before Google+ and by that time, many social networking sites have learned immensely from how Facebook has developed itself. This learning experience gave Google+ the chance to be much more efficient, user friendly and modern.

For instance, when Facebook came into being, Tablets or Smart phones did not exist. However, at the time of Google+ they were the most recent trend and so Google+ could integrate mobile apps and platforms from the beginning, instead of trying and adapting to the new trend, like Facebook.

It took more than $550 million to create the platform of Google+ and technology that was required in its development. Even after so much of effort and investment, people were suspicious and reluctant to this new change.

Facebook began adapting defensive strategies to compete with Google+. It began exploring the mobile app market and started its development into it with integrating mobile apps into Facebook. After 2 years of immense competition between these two platforms, Google+ is now accepted as a worthy competition to Facebook.

Google+ has now more than 602 million users and it is still growing. Between June to March 2013, the growth of Google+ was 33%

Facebook is the No.1 networking site but businesses have a great opportunity of social media integration by using Google+ along with Facebook. Most companies are missing this opportunity as they do not realize the market appeal, which the combination of Google+ and Facebook might give them.
