Flawed thinking about Google Plus and early adopters (VIDEO)One thing that Google Plus has brought with it are discussions that nonprofits should wait because the only people using it are “early adopters”.

There are three reasons why this is flawed:

  1. Early adopters know how to get a message out via social media.
  2. Competition is scarce.
  3. Early adopters are people too.

  1. I’m with you, John. The reason to get in early is to learn before everyone’s piled in, for one thing. Second, you’re right that getting connected with the early adopters is a great way to get some of the better tips early. 

    I haven’t visited your site directly lately. Very nice clean design. : ) You wear Headway well. 

  2. Great post John! I have been putting off really diving into Google+, only reason being time, and lack of it. 

    Great video, and I agree with ya 100%. See ya on +

  3. Did that actually get stated or was the comment more centered around how they wanted to learn before opening up the service to non individuals? If I understand the reasoning for the wait it’s due to how the Google + accounts are associated. Do organizations have gmail accounts that can be connected? Perhaps I’m missing something in the process but I thought the reason for waiting was related to the account and how we set up the service. If I’m wrong let me know. I like the idea of how we would use the service to segment the discussions and message the circles.

  4. I have to say I’m a little late to the party, but I’ve heard some great things about the site, and it does seem to be working better for my efforts than Facebook ever did.
