PR True Or False Podcast: “Google Should Cut Its Losses And Pull The Plug On Google+”

On this week's PR True Or False podcast, Phil Szomszor and Austin Brailey discuss the topic title: "Google should cut its losses and pull the plug on Google+"

Phil has experimented with Google+ two years running with his "Cold Twerky" experiment and is sceptical about whether the audience is there for Google+. Meanwhile, Austin believes that it's misguided to think of Google+ as a social network in same way as the likes of Facebook and Twitter.

We've also received data and insight from Tom Smith, founder of research company GlobalWebIndex, which highlights that Google+ is really powering ahead in the fast growing internet markets, such as Thailand, India, The Philippines and Malaysia. In fact, Brazil has almost as many regular users as the US - and India has twice as many.

Finally, we sign off the show with a protest song by Emma Blackery (warning: the song contains language that some people may find offensive).
