It’s far too early to conclude whether Google+ is a valuable social media platform, or simply the newest shiny thing, even though self-proclaimed Google+ “experts” are multiplying like rabbits.
It’s worth nothing, however, that Muck Rack, the site that tracks major journalists and what they’re writing about on Twitter, has listed more than 140 journalists on Google+. Many of them work at top-tier media outlets like the New York Times, Huffington Post, Fox News, Washington Post and ABC News.
How can you use this information?
Follow them. But don’t pitch, at least not yet. It’s far too early. People are still figuring out how to use this.
If you need an invitation to Google+, email me and put “Google +” in the subject line.
