Google+ for Politics: Google+ Offers Politicians Convenient Ways to Connect With Constituents
Politicians always appreciate new and better ways to connect with the general public. They have been using Twitter and Facebook but somehow those networks do not fulfill a politician’s requirements in a user-friendly way. A network that does offer those features in a friendly manner is Google+.
Google+ is now catering to politicians too. The network has a webpage up that highlights the features available for politcians. The most basic feature of course is sharing updates by your status message and your constituents showing their support by +1-ing your post. Status messages can also be used to gather opinions (see image above), making them act as online polls.
The feature of sorting people into circles on Google+ lets you tailor messages for specific groups, without filling up the feed of your other contacts. The virtual meeting option lets you conduct a high-quality video chat that supports up to 10 users. And then of course there is the option to upload pictures of political events to keep your constituents updated.
