    Google+ running out of ideas after launching ‘Pages’

It’s no suprise that Google has resorted to copying other social networks’ features, I mean if you had a social network that wasn’t as popular as the others, you’d steal ideas as well wouldn’t you?

The latest feature of Google+ is ‘Pages’. You’ve probably already used something similar before on Facebook, the number one social network on the planet.

The hugely popular feature of Facebook, used by millions to create random pages about jokes and also for use as business pages to connect with potential customers, has been copied by Google in an attempt to interact with their users a little bit more.

Google+ Pages was announced yesterday and sure, they’ve probably created a very interactive and user friendly experience. However, you’re not going to get anywhere by copying other peoples ideas when the originals are already being used by more people than you have in your entire user database.

The Pages feature of Google+ boasts the ability to “connect with customers and fans who love you.”

“Not only can they recommend you with a +1, or add you to a circle to listen long-term. They can actually spend time with your team, face-to-face-to-face. All you need to do is start sharing, and you’ll soon find the super fans and loyal customers that want to say hello.”

Sure, I’ve used Google+ and it’s definitely a very nice and easy to use service, however you need to come up with something original if you plan on beating the competition.

What do you make of the “new” Google+ feature? Let us know in the comments section below.
