It doesn’t have to be good to get attention – it just has to be something that everyone is talking about.
For the UK, Ed Sheeran, Adele and the Royal Wedding were amongst the popular searches for the year. Before 2011, did anyone search for Ed Sheeran?

Chris Moyles and his Radio 1 breakfast show team have made their thoughts about the new Twitter interface very clear across the airwaves to millions of listeners. The team have complained about new tabs on their Twitter profiles, lack of highlighted mentions and a confusing Twitter activity tab.

Changes to the social websites that we use for business can be frustrating. Facebook regularly change their features and layouts making some information a lot harder to find and creating a lot of “social noise” that gets in the way of purposeful interactions. It can be a full time job trying to keep up with all the changes.

Until this week, Google + was restricted to personal use, being a true “social” network allowing users to share content with their friends on a personal level. As of Monday 7th November 2011, business are able to add their own Brand pages on Google + which will allow users to follow updates from the business much like Facebook fan pages.
Mashable experts claim that these pages will be more effective than facebook, because Google has over 60% share of the search market and no doubt will be paying high regard to it’s own social media service. A Google + brand page is another way to complement your business’s social media footprint, and should be utilised where possible.
