Why You Should Get A Google+ Page For Your Music ASAP

Remember when we all got excited about Google+ replacing Facebook? Well, that hasn’t quite happened yet. Though, today it seems they are taking another step forward and it’s an important one for music. As you should know, Google results are very important to your music getting discovered. This can be very helpful if your group doesn’t always come up on top of search results, and very helpful if there are others out there who use your name. In addition to this when you enter “+_____” in a Google search, you will then be sent directly to the page instead of search results. This will make it so that fans can follow your updates fast, if that is indeed what they are looking to do. You can get more info on the launch that will happen any day, right here.

    As a musician (hobbyist), photographer (hobbyist), and just someone with lots of interests – there is room for all 3 social networks (at least in my view) – peaceful co-existence!

    1. Facebook – staying in touch with friends and family (sure, you can now “subscribe” to those beyond the realms of your social influence, but for the time being, it isn’t the primary reason people use Facebook). 

    2. Twitter – keeping up to date with those beyond your realm of social influence (news services, celebrities, journalists, etc). On Twitter (for the majority of users), even though the majority of people you follow don’t often know you – you still know them (mainly because, quite simply, they have some level of fame).

    3. Google+ – keeping in touch and seeing content not from friends and family (Facebook) or from the rich and famous (Twitter) but from everyday, ordinary people who share similar interests to you. Keen photographer? Follow a few “circles” of photographers, and in no time you will have a fantastic stream of new images in no time. Keen gamer? Writer? Into the outdoors? Tech? Science? You name it, there are millions of people out there with similar interests to yourself, sharing or creating interesting content in subject matters that you relate to.
