2 Big Annoucements We See With The Entry Of Google +

Internet the place that is best known for the word difference. Yesterday when I slept I found Godaddy as an independent venture and today it has been taken over. Also yesterday I saw my website working totally well but today the hell it is facing name server problems. The main thing I would like to tell you is the importance of the the word “difference” that has an permanent place for itself int he world of the web. Two such big difference we see with the entry of Google’s all new social network, Google +.

Google Plus

We all were extremely excited when we saw the entry of the website and the sneak peaks by Google had already mad the things so exciting that people were too anxious for getting the invites into their email inboxes. So finally talking about the differences that I regard a big with the entry of this service.

1. Facebook Announces Social Video Chat

We all knew it well till today that Microsoft and Facebook are great friends and obviously they will do something together that may help out all those who are somewhere or the other related with either of these companies. So now the worlds biggest social networking website has introduced the partnership of its website with Skype the service for calling on the web. Together both of them will unite to star with the new service called social video chat. Sounds good, lets wait till next week and see what this service can do for us.

2. Picasa Web Album Goes Unlimited

As reported via Read Write Web the whole service still has the 1 GB specification as if you see the FAQ page but if you use Google + to upload the pictures instead of directly uploading it to the web server via you computer then your picture wont be a part of the 1 GB space. Instead it would be counted as free. So indirectly this is unlimited storage on the picasa web albums for all those who tend to go ahead for the services of Google +.

Inventing a popular brand is one thing, staying on top is a whole different story. The quest for companies is to not just achieve popularity, but to sustain it as well. In order to do that, a company must reach out to their followers and continue to deliver quality products as well as other incentives to keep them relevant.

In the age of social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, these seven brands have constantly delivered to their followers and it explains why they are on top.

#4. Red Bull

Red Bull

The key ingredient to giving twenty-something’s the energy they need to go bar hopping and relentlessly hitting on women, is also one of the popular brands with their fans. Playing off their high octane image, the Red Bull big shots constantly offer fans a chance to see live bands and share in free Red Bull products.


#5. Skype

Skype

Skype has become so big, even Oprah uses them. When this company received the highest honour in the world (the Oprah honor) they decided to up their image. They took advantage of their Twitter account and began using it as an update center as well as a platform for angry tweets.


#6. Starbucks

FB Star Bucks

The place that made pretentious acceptable, is now making criticism desirable. Their Facebook page attracts thousands of followers every day. They can go to the My Starbucks Idea and submit their idea or gimmick to improve the overall quality of the brand.


#7. Dell

The computer company has been on top for years, and it has nothing to do with their rash of irritating pitchmen. The truth is Dell has found a way to make their Twitter page fan friendly and profitable. The company began tweeting discounts to computers from their Home Outlet store. The idea not only wrangled a whole new set of followers, but netted the company over $1 million in sales.

These companies have used the technology of today’s world to increase their brand. They have upped their public profile and it’s paying off in their popularity. Ti’s a testament to what innovation and concern for the customer can do.
