You are probably convinced that Google+ is a complete waste of your time. After following a couple of articles online, you will definitely get the feeling that Google+ is an empty wasteland with nobody around and you shouldn’t bother at all, considering there are better alternatives.

In this post, we make a case in favor of Google+.
The social networking site by Google can improve your knowledge of digital media, enhance your online presence and help you understand that sharing content and attracting an audience is a matter of simplicity and experimentation. Google+ is, by all means, a sandbox. Here’s how:
1) Personalizing your E-mails
We all love our corporate e-mails and how professional and cool they make us look. Most corporate e-mails are based on the premise that you will be sending just text, spreadsheets and statistics.
Of course it’s important to stay professional, but in this day and age, social dominance is the new digital flavor. A social picture can make all the difference in the world, especially if you are in the digital business – where professionalism and social networking are a mix of tremendous vitality.
With Gmail and Google+ you automatically combine those two characteristics, insta-connecting your recipient with your digital personality. That gives you a boost and provides you with the authority that you know what you are talking about, while at the same time keeping it simple and maintaining the core identity of the e-mail. Google +, mail and search are a killer combination.
2) Digitizing your Hobbies
As individuals, we all maintain hobbies we would love to share and talk about with other individuals.
Being relatively new, Google+ offers a great community of dedicated people with all sorts of interests and hobbies. The network is quiet, calm and oblivious to trends and media congestion. That being said, it makes it an ideal place to dig in and share your interests with people, get feedback on your photography, your cooking and your music skills – a place to discover new and fun stuff.
G+ communities are an easy and super-fast way to discover and connect, depending on your interests.
3) Experimenting with Content
Let’s get serious about what Google+ is all about.
Just as we said, the social networking site is new, unexplored and definitely not popular. We can only see a single, great and very positive feature right there: experimentation.
Finding the right content to share within the perfect context is a tricky business – it takes time, patience, observation and of course, endless experimentation (don’t overstretch though).
Lucky for you, there is a social network out there with actual people that can feed you with amazing results about the content you share. Combine links with pictures, different colors and anything else you are planning before sharing it on more “established” platforms of your online presence.
4) Being Ahead of the Game
This is the Reason to Conquer all Other Reasons.
As a social networking website, Google+ can offer endless possibilities to connect, share and discover. However, it’s new and the majority of people are not very keen to dedicate time to a network that has none of their friends in it. Yet.
Google+ is the icing to the cake, connecting the world’s most powerful search with the world’s most used e-mail service and the world’s most visited media website (Youtube).
Being there now, in case Google+ is the next big thing (in some way), is definitely priceless.
Closing the case, we’d like to say, and we quote, that Google+ was made by the world’s largest search engine, so it’s only natural to expect great things. Still not convinced? Check out this infographic by SocialMediaDelivered:
