Google Plus Local and Facebook Post Scheduling

Google Places for business and Facebook have made two significant changes this week. If you are on Google Plus, you might have already seen the change from Google Places to Google Plus Local. The biggest change that will probably effect you is the update for Facebook to schedule posts for your business without using a third party like HootSuite.

I have to admit, I have never had success using HootSuite. The software would duplicate posts or somehow mess up the time the item should post. As for Google+, even though statistics state users are being added by the thousands each week, I can’t say I have heard anyone in the past week say, “did you see John Doe’s recent Google+ relationship status?”. I think Google has something with combining everything Google into one, but not sure they are getting what they are necessarily looking for in return from it.
