Amazing video illustrates the power of viral marketing

Go on - I dare you to watch this video and then not share it with anybody.

Samsung will sell phones based on this ad - even if they were useless!

Does Google+ have a Business Use Case?

If you don't know what Google+ is then you can read on and find out . Google+ unlike Twitter, Yammer, LinkedIn, Live Messenger or Facebook is not just a social network. And while all those mentioned have different elements of social networking in them unique in most cases to each one, Google+ contains elements of them all, and then does it a completely different way.

googleplus-iconThe most different thing about Google+ is the circles. Simply put circles are overlapping groups that can be created very easily and you can add your contacts to them. You can then easily share posts with different circles. If you need a new circle for a specific reason, just create one, add some people to it and away you go. Additionally, people don't need to be your "friends" in order to follow you and vice versa. Thus you can broadcast to a circle including people who aren't following you, ad they can broadcast to you. Muting or blocking a person is easy.

Hangouts and Huddles are real time chat tools for web and mobile allowing some pretty cool interactivity to occur.

But how can this be used for business, or even should it be used?

I think there are a number of things to consider here.
