OK so I will readily admit my G+ Business pages have the worst case of "cobbler's shoes" I've ever seen. They are terrible and I know it! And sadly, don't have time to deal with them. I could make a list a mile long of things that are wrong, but most of all the images suck!

But now that I have my shiny new Map Marker Puzzle logo done... I will give my G+ pages a refresh - someday - after I clear my 108 item to-do list. :p

Mine really has the cobbler issue as well. One of the things that I have on the books for later this fall.

Although I have recently been seeing a few factual pieces arising about the social return, I have not seen strong proof of ROI from social, and so we tend to not prioritize it--although we are in most of the networks.

Also, G is pushing to make their platform non-optional but our target clients are usually not active online in the social sphere.
