#GooglePlus is not a ghost town: The massive engagement in Communities

#GooglePlus is not a ghost town: The massive engagement in Communities | Google+ ( Google Plus ) for Small Business | Scoop.it

Launched in December 2012, the communities tool has become one of the most vibrant and popular features on the Google Plus platform. Like Facebook groups, communities usually focus on a particular topic (some of the most popular communities include Science,Photographers, and Space).


Anyone can launch a community, thereby becoming a moderator, and then that person can approve other users as moderators as well. Moderators have broad administrative powers that allow them to delete posts (those that are off topic or spam), create subcategories (the Landscape Photography community has more than 10), and pin posts to the top of the page so they can gain more visibility.

With Google Plus, Google is building a state-of-the-art super-city in the middle of nowhere, where nobody cares to live, irrespective of whether anyone actually wants to live there. Here's what they're doing wrong.
Peg Corwin's insight:

"The only reason why Google+ exists is as a bait-and-switch trap — a honey pot — to draw the makers of online content into the clear in order to associate them with their web content and then put a Real Name with a face as a Turing Test of sorts, as a way to separate the men from the bots.
