Under pressure from enthusiastic businesses, Google quickly followed its public launch in September 2011 with the roll out of new business pages. But did that early enthusiasm translate into ongoing action – or has Google Plus still to take off?

I keep seeing the question, "is social media killing email?". And I think it’s about time I addressed the issue.
The answer is no. In reality social media is enhancing and supporting the growth of email. In 2011 email marketing platforms and services grew by an estimated 15.5% in the UK, and have grown consistently over the past 8 years – see Econsultancy’s Email Marketing Platforms Buyers Guide 2012.
