Why Google Plus Matters To Your Business

There are way too many social networks these days. The consolidation will happen soon enough, but in the meantime, which networks should you use to engage customers?

The answer depends largely on your business. Consumer-focused businesses must be on Facebook, but what about Pinterest, Instagram, Youtube, etc.?
