Is Google+ Being Left To Die?
With Vic Gundotra resigning from the Google+ division and personnel being re-assigned, do you feel that this social media platform will die?
Should business owners put their focus elsewhere?

Nothing is permanent. I think the real question that concerns a user, is is the platform going to die before me or after me?
I guess I would be happy to keep using it supposed I am contented with the latter case. :-)
We see Google+ as an effective social media platform. There are changes along the way and it is developing. I don't think Google+ is left to die, it will stay and will be better as the years go by.
Great questions. I don't believe the Google+ plus will die. There are many useful tools that are integrated into the platform that will keep it useful to marketers and consumers. While it will be a long while until business will notice a direct impact from Google+, I believe it is very important to start using the tools and integrating them into social marketing efforts. Everything on Google+ is indexed and will help your "scoring" on Google.
I thought this post may have been pointing to the article by TechCrunch. It does sound like a fantastic article but sadly there is no truth to what it being said there. Here is an article to lay to rest any rumours: http://goo.gl/7QZVP1, it was posted by Yonatan Zunger the chief exec of Google Plus.
I personally believe that if a business is looking to focus their social media in just one area, I would recommend google plus. This is not just for the benefits in terms of optimisation and to get your website ranked but soo much more. You can truly connect with people on there and people are looking to engage and interact. You can use it as a free broadcasting platform using google hangouts as your medium, use it as a forum to ask questions and get feedback and there are numerous ways to find your target audience on there and build a client base from G+.
Like Charles Pinkerton said, Businesses cant afford to ignore it!
Looks likely as the whole team has been moved. Hope not though, its taken me a year to start using it properly against the likes of FB and Linkedin
I sure hope not! I've put a ton of work into it for my business.
Its not pulling the fans in like a Facebook or Twitter. So technically… yes. But as some have said here it will stick around… but deader than dead.
No I don,t think so Google+ will die. Google+ still good social networking website and so much beneficial for marketers.
Maybe Google+ will die. But the features are still alive (Places, Authorship, YouTube-Connect).
Nothing stops for someone, Google + will not Die, it's just the beginning now... :)
