At the time of writing Google+ and Pinterest are the newest kids on the block as far as social media are concerned and every time there is something new we're all left wondering whether or not we should be using them in our marketing activities or not. The problem is that we all have a limited amount of time and we can't do everything.

With that in mind it's important that you target what time you do have in the right area. Over the next couple of pages I briefly discuss some of the advantages and disadvantages of both. (You may have already found others) and I leave you with some things to think about

I can't make up your mind for you, but I hope that this resource will help to clarify some of your thinking.

Thank you. I think it's a constant challenge to decide just how much of all these things you can do.

I like to use G+ for backlinks, G+ pages and getting indexed in search engines. I like to use Pinterest for backlinks and driving instant traffic to my sites - both are good!

I have accounts for both but I am using Pinterest more than Google+ at the moment simply because my demographic is weighted sharply towards women.

I don't think you really need to choose. These are not full time activities. Schedule some time for each and think about the different ways that the interfaces can be helpful. Use each in it's own way and you are good to go.

Thanks for commenting.

I'm not sure I necessarily agree with you. If you try to use Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, You Tube, Pinterest that takes a lot of work and is not necessarily an effective use of people's time.

So as Google+ and Pinterest are the newest ones, I think some people may at this stage want to choose. I hear lots of people saying they have various accounts in the different social media but haven't found the time to use them or unsure of the benefits.

Better to use one or two effecifiently and one that brings benefits to your business than using one or more poorly.
