Some companies use Google plus and other social networks exclusively to boast about the qualities of their products and services, which is rather pointless.
Google+ is not an advertising showcase
Google+ Pages and Google+ communities are not advertising showcases. These are pages and virtual communities of a social network. The purpose of these communities is offering you a free space to create relationships, share, enrich each other with information, news, tips, and all that is worth sharing and exchanging.
The saddling sterility of exaggerated self-promotion
Imagine going to a party. Suddenly, a dude addresses you to start boasting its merits, without showing any interest in your person. After a few minutes, you would start to get bored of all his boasting, and you would want to leave him. So why, when you post on Google+, you’re like that dude, behaving accordingly ?
The subborn selfishness of many participants, who do not even make the effort to give a little “+” to other publications, is deleterious. If what everyone does is just bragging about his products or services, Google+ and Google+ communities will soon become a sterile and useless space.
On Google+, give first and you will receive
I want to thank all those who share useful information, fun or valuable tips with others; I also thank those who interact, valuing each other’s work with +, comments, shares.
