With the arrival of Google Street View in 2007 it became clear that businesses could benefit from rich media content that could be embedded into their own websites or included in their Google Listing on the Social Networking pages provided by Google+
We strongly believe that Google+ is one of the best ways of promoting your business quickly and easily - especially if you do not have your own website.
Google+ (pronounced and sometimes written as Google Plus) is a social networking and identity service owned and operated by Google Inc. It is the second-largest social networking site in the world, having surpassed Twitter in January 2013. It has approximately 359 million active users. As of May 2013, it had a total of 500 million registered users, of whom 235 million are active in a given month. Google has described Google+ as a "social layer" that enhances many of its online properties, unlike conventional social networks generally accessed through a single website.
Google+ was used by 30% of smartphone users between April–June 2013, making it the fourth most used app.
