Goodbye Google+

Online communities come and go.

Recently Google retired Google+, their fourth attempt at social media networking.

Like I’ve posted before, websites still have a place alongside a social media presence.

The best practice is to have a website where (as long as you keep the domain and hosting) you own the location and can direct traffic from your social media presence to your content. While Google does allow you to “Take Out” and download your content and contacts, you now need to find an alternative location for your interaction with that audience.

The users of Google+ have been moving away for a while, where did your Google+ audience move to?

Excellent hosting

A shout out to Media Temple who hosts many of our websites. After a disaster with our server down for several days with a previous low-cost hosting provider, we are glad of Media Temple’s excellent technical support and proud to be affiliated with them since 2008.
