Google's foray into social media several years ago with it's product Google+ at first seemed like just another attempt to compete with Facebook, but Google did a couple of things in launching this product. They tied all the blogs they host to Google+ as well as images. This immediately created another way for individuals producing content to get their material viewed by a larger audience. This blog and the Sky Gypsies both now direct their feed to Google+ and the page's performance has done quite well, recently surpassing its' 1,000,000 viewer. While the images produced and curated on Panoramio have done quite well (with about 1.37 million views), the rate of the Google+ performance is much better and better than both blogs themselves. Based on this evidence it would seem Google got it right. The obvious conclusion is that if a business provides online tools, users will make use of those tools and site visitation will follow.
