This graphic illustrating which social network is best for which type of posting was all over Facebook yesterday. It seems like all the social media geeks and a few non-SM-geeks got a chuckle over the logic that was all too accurate. My favorite qualifying questions:
- Do you want anyone to see it? ("No" response leads to Google+--ouch!)
- Is it boring? ("Yes" response leads to LinkedIn. Again, ouch!)
However, as a follow up to the Google+ owie above, Chris Abraham has written an information-packed post on why it makes sense to use Google+. Abraham reports that Google+ was rushed out early as a response to Twitter cutting off access to Google for search results. The big benefit to using Google+, he reports, is search results:
For anyone that really cares about being part of search, anyone who cares even a little bit about Google’s search hegemony, there’s another benefit to participating in Google+: search priority, search timeliness and search relevance.
As for the LinkedIn boring rule? Sorry can't help there--LinkedIn is for the run-of-the-mill stuff in my book.
