On Google+ Works: An Open Apology for My First Impression

Thanks for the kind words and commenting. As far as industry-related connections go, G+ is one of the best ways that I can interact with my peers. That's the value I get from G+ and it's been a great addition to how I use social media.

On Why Google+ Isn't Google-worthy

Hey Barry,

I've been making the rounds today trying to address all the comments on this blog entry. In short, I got it wrong on this topic. The comments on this blog, when I initially posted it, really challenged my thinking, and made me dig deeper. This led me to do a 180 on my "assessment" of Google+. Thanks for not letting me be a lazy thinker. If you have time, please check out my recent post regarding this. http://www.copperfoxmarketing.com/google-plus-works/

Hey David, 

Circling back here (no pun intended.) You were correct on G+. I couldn't have gotten it more wrong. Anyways, I specifically cite your challenge as one of the reasons I am grateful to participate in G+ now. So in a very roundabout way, thanks! If you have time, please check out my article about the matter. http://ow.ly/ssLZK

Also, I really don't want to share my personal one (I use it just for family and friends) but I'm available on the Copperfox G+ account and would love to connect with you there.

Thanks!
Steve

On Why Google+ Isn't Google-worthy

Hey Mark,

I took your comment here to heart, and shortly after began exploring G+ in more depth. In short, you are 100% correct in your assessment. This has been a real face-palm moment for me in my digital strategist career. Please take a moment to read http://ow.ly/ssLZK . Thanks for making me better at this.

On Why Google+ Isn't Google-worthy

This is a great assessment Jeffrey. My initial entry here just got it wrong. I would love to have a perfect track record, but my initial evaluation just got it wrong. I'm trying to make right on this entry and have posted my rebuff here at http://ow.ly/ssLZK , I'm going to reach out to Social Media Today to see if they can also carry this article as well. I appreciate you pointing out the flaws. It has made me better at what I do.
Respectfully,
Steve

Hey Jason,
You were right, I was wrong. That's the easiest way to put this. I read your comment as soon as you posted it, and it was one of the primary reasons I dug deeper into G+, and man, you were correct. There's no easy way to share an apology blog, but this is my simple submission. http://ow.ly/ssLZK I'm going to reach out to Social Media Today to see if they can also carry this article as well. Thanks for challenging me to be better.
Respectfully,
Steve

Ben, 
Your points are valid. I was wrong for the most part of this article. I hate that I got it wrong, but I clearly did. Thanks for challenging me to be better. I'm going through all the comments to try and fix this. Please check out my article today that addresses this specific post. http://ow.ly/ssLZK I'm going to reach out to Social Media Today to see if they can also carry this article as well.
Respectfully,
Steve

Hi Attain,
I'm hijacking your comment to post this, for anyone interested. I got it wrong on this post. I posted today on why that is. http://ow.ly/ssLZK  Thanks for reading!

On The Big Brand Theory: How Is Social Media Reshaping Pfizer?

Self-regulation is definitely a good policy in this wild west era of social for pharmas. I would be interested in knowing what the real value of a company like Pfizer has in social media? The only use I can see for it is customer-service. Other than that, why should Pfizer be in social media?

On Why Google+ Isn't Google-worthy

Hi Rupert, I'm having difficulty understanding your comment. But I believe you can't see what I responded? Here is my response... "The given G+ account is not my active account, and I need to remove that one from my profile here. That account was strictly for business, but I decided to not get too involved in it. I use my personal account for Google+, and activity tapered off dramatically on it over the past six months for the reasons mentioned in the post. Thanks for reminding me to change my profile."
