Google+ 1 billion users!

My favorite social publishing platform and social network, Google+ now has over one billion users! That is incredible!

I am one of the first users of the service, I started using it as my main blog already in July 2011, and I soon have 50,000 followers, and it’s the best thing that has happened to me online. Nothing beats the interaction, the engagement you find on Google+[1]. Nothing. Before Google+ I had a lot of different blogs with hardly no engagement at all, I was glad if I get one comment. Now I have a lot of interaction and engagement! All thanks to Google+.

The Google+ and Blogger connection

At first I started to blog only on Google+, but after Google announced the new tight connection and synchronization with their Blogger service, I started to use a Blogger blog again, and everything I publish there also get published on Google+, and everything in total sync. So all the re-shares, +1’s and comments all get collected on to my blog post. So I can easily see all the comments threads from all the shares of the post, and I can engage in the discussions. It works incredibly good.

Google 3.0

I am so happy for Google+, and that it has succeeded to get so many users now, I know that it is the new Google, Google 3.0.

I think it is very important to start using Google+ if you haven’t already, because it will only be bigger and bigger, and if you are a blogger or publisher of any content, it will be very important to have a large following crowd on Google+. It brings you a lot of traffic, I can assure you that.

So start using Google+ and follow me here.
