Google Plus is a tough one, not many people on it yet so hard to get any real exposure.

Ours is: https://plus.google.com/112148596763201177622/

Feel free to follow and we'll follow you back, fun to stay in touch with other business peeps.

That's why I have been working on expanding my circle... best to *try* to get ahead of the curve!

Here's an article I put together with some strategies to grow your Google+ circle (no tiny URL )

Thank you for doing the more trusted way.

I actually embed the Google profile badge on my blog like what has been discussed in your post here's my blog. http://santamonicaminimumwage.blogspot.com/

It actually helps my blog to have an authorship of mine.

If you try to search my blog on Google, you will see that the authorship of it is mine.

Google is really powerful and can do everything.

I havenít used Google+ for my small business; probably because I use Facebook more often. Aside from that, I am more familiar with the site.

I think these social media trends are going too far. There is a lot of information, sometimes too much, shared .

What worries me is the terms of use policies that are so complex and leave holes wide open for privacy abuses.
