Google+ page vs Facebook page – the battle has just begun…

The first smoke has died down. But the war has just begun. Page vs Page. Facebook vs Google. Two Superpowers against each others.

In the first place these social networks giants was created for people to connect with people. Or “friends and family” as Facebook use to call it. With their “profiles” as a basis for the communication within the network.

Then the time came for the companies to engage with their target audience. With their “pages” as a basis for their communication. And I guess the battle has just begun.

As far as I can see and understand both of these giants have just ended up into a massive clash! Where the value proposition for their users (as companies, brands, and others) is very much the same.

Of course they both have advantages and disadvantages. The SiliconIndia says for an example:

The greatest benefit of branding products in Google plus will be the link up with search engine. The search engine will track the brands on Google plus pages easily and will bring them to the top list in the search engine. Just typing “+Google” will take the user directly to the company’s profile page.
Facebook has again got something that will affect their market. The like button of Facebook is similar to the +1 button on Google plus. The hangout button is simpler to use when compared to video chat in Facebook with Skype. Now Google plus also going corporate will be a tough completion to Facebook pages.

Well – as I said – the battle has just begun… and I’ll will follow this war with great interest.

Now – I’ve just created my own “Google+ page” and I’m looking forward to see yours, and follow your point of view in this matter. Mashable show you how to get started.

  1. There don’t seem to be any rules for a G+ page. It seems like you can do pretty much everything you can’t do on FB. Or am I missing something?

    • Thanks! Appreciate your comment! But please, explain what do you mean with: “…you can do pretty much everything you can’t do on FB”? I’m still not familiar enough with the matter…

      • I mean use all the native functions, like uploading pics, to hold contests etc. The FB pages rules are complicated and basically all promo has to be done through apps. G+ seems to have none of that.

  7. One thing I noticed is that “techy people” (like our developers and system engineers) promotes the use of G+ versus FB.
