Google Earth Blog is now on Google+

A few months ago, we mentioned that both Frank and I were on Google+. At the time, only humans were allowed to have accounts, so “Google Earth Blog” couldn’t have a page on there. Now we can!
Starting yesterday afternoon, websites businesses can create pages on Google+ so we’ve created one to give you an easy way to stay up-to-date on the latest Google Earth news and information.


If you’d like to join us on Google+, just visit our page here and add us to a circle of yours. You might also want to check out the official Google Maps page or perhaps explore my circle of geo-related people on Google+.
If you’re not on Google+ and have no interest in joining, we’re certainly not leaving you out. We’ll continue to be active on Facebook and Twitter, we’ve got our RSS feed, and you can even subscribe to get email updates. We want to make it easy for you to keep in touch in whatever manner you prefer, and we encourage you to ask questions and share your greatest Google Earth finds with us.

  1. Mickey – although I appreciate that you will continue to active on a broad front, do you intend to put any significant content on Google+, or other social networks, which is not on GEB?

  2. Chris – I’d expect relatively little of that, other than discussions, similar to what we’ve done to date on Facebook and Twitter. We’ll occasionally post tidbits on the other sites, but anything worth sharing will likely be on here first and then subsequently on the various social platforms.

  3. Mickey – many thanks for your reassurance (I doubted you would do anything else, but media develops and changes very rapidly).
