“Sell” is a 4 letter word . . .

I’ve done my own unofficial and totally unscientific survey and have become “firmly convinced” that if you are selling you are failing.

The Googleplex strikes . . .

Could Google Plus (G+ or Google+ for short) be your one stop shop for Social Media? Personally, I’m thinking the answer is yes, even at this early stage of development.
