Facebook VS Google

Facebook has been king of the social media mountain for quite sometime now.  But let’s face it, Facebook was designed to connect us with our friends, family and those people from grade school we’d forgotten about until that Friend Request showed up this morning.  Facebook has taken flak for its lax privacy rules.  Most recently, Facebook, hacker group Anonymous has threatened to take Facebook out over privacy issues although they haven’t said exactly how they’ll attack.

Google+ has already made a big splash in the social media world for personal users who like its more stringent privacy rules.  Google has also recently confirmed that they soon offer Google+ business profile pages.  The potential is huge for small to mid-size businesses.  Google+ is still very much the new kid on the social media block, but it has all the right things going for it.  When the business pages for Google+ are launched, it will be interesting to see how quickly it catches up to (and maybe even surpasses) Facebook’s business pages.
