If you want, your business to be present on the social networks one of the sites you need to be aware of is Google+. As of now, Google+ is the second largest social network with more than 500 million users worldwide.
Though Facebook is by far the largest network Google+ is gaining popularity and is especially interesting for users that are tired of having their Facebook Newsfeed cluttered with ads, updates from friends and posts from businesses they follow all in a great hotchpotch.
