People often ask what Google Plus is and why they should be using it

Google+ is Google’s version of a social network but it’s much more than just another Facebook or Twitter. They are positioning it as your brand online. It’s an area where you are able to show a softer side of your business. The Google search result page flattens your brand by taking away descriptions, images, and so forth. But Google+ allows you to put this back and rewards you in the search engine results.

To help you to understand the purpose and functionality of Google+, we have created a series of videos, presented by Luke. Below is the first video in the series of 13, which are all in this playlist on YouTube.

We will be sharing each of the videos in turn over the coming weeks.

Do you use Google+? If not, why not? We’d love to hear your views in the comments below.
