Youtube is the most reliable video platform available socially over the internet. I’m not sure what system they used but videos are continually viewed here even if internet is a bit slow. The problem in is, anonymous rude comments are rampant. So, to stop this, a recent move has been implemented which is of course not acceptable to all:

Google Plus Creates Uproar Over Forced YouTube Integration


Google Plus is back in the headlines again, but not for any spike in users or must-have new features. Rather, Google’s social network has now become further entwined in yet another of Google’s properties, YouTube.

People with bogus identities over the net can afford to display bad behavior because no one know them anyway in reality. The said integration is not at all a problem to individuals who are honest about their opinions – but will never attack anyone below the belt. As a blogger and a very opinionated person, I go for this Youtube and Google Plus integration.

It is very important for businesses to be listed in all Google online platforms – especially in the Google Plus and Places listings. They must be clearly identified at Google Maps also for the exact physical location. These serve as confirmation for the legitimacy of such listed businesses for the online community – aside from making the entity visible through Google searches. Read this article so as not to miss important details:

Understanding Google Places & Local Search – Developing Knowledge about Local Search

By: Mike Blumenthal 

This afternoon Google rolled out a new mobile Google Places for Business app that allows management of a business’s Google Plus listing via  Android.

From the Google Play description:

Keep your business listing fresh and up-to-date across Google with the free Google Places for Business app:
– Update your business information, including hours, address, contact information, photos and description
– Keep your customers in the know by posting updates and photos
– Respond to comments and +1′s on your posts
– Learn how customers find and interact with your business with insights
– Manage multiple business locations from one app

First and foremost before starting any listing, make sure that the gmail used already has a completed profile indicating the country and other information of the business. Bear in mind that if this is left out, the country on default will use the location of the IP address. So, web developers creating profiles locally for overseas clients will have a hard time doing this – if the actual country of the business location can’t be found on the selection format. Hope this helps.
