Google+ is the latest innovation rolled out by, well, Google. In short, it is an amalgamation of several services Google already provides, but is designed to keep users more connected to the information they share and receive.

Here we will look at the new options Google+ offers, and ways casino affiliates can use these options to grow their business.

Google+ Circles

Unlike Facebook and Twitter where everyone in your network can see everything you post, Circles allows users to share different information with different people. While Facebook does offer lists, Circles breaks down categories into a more streamlined fashion, i.e. different categories for poker enthusiasts, black jack players, bingo, etc. This can make sharing information with your users more personalized.

Google+ Hangouts

Google+ Hangouts allows users to talk with up to 10 people in a video chat room. Instead of being included in a Twitter party, or talking via video chat through Skype, you can let a group of 10 know you’re available online and they can chat with you face-to-face. This is great for more intimate networking.

Google+ Sparks

Google+ Sparks sorts stories, articles and videos by topic in one area. Any time you want to see what’s going on in the world (related to your topics), you can click on your individual icons and get a page filled with news, posts and information—all that can be shared with your Google+ Circles.

Google+ Huddle

Google+ Huddle is designed to keep everyone in the loop via text when you’re trying to communicate with multiple people at the same time. Huddle groups can turn conversations into one chat on one page directly from your Android or iPhone.

Google+ Instant Upload

Google+ Instant upload allows users to upload photos and videos to your own private Google+ album, where you can then create separate sharing rooms based on Google+ Circles. For instance, you can upload informative gaming videos to be shared with your conservative users, or racy Calvin Ayre industry party photos to be shared with your fun-loving crowd.
