BackupVault now has a Google+ account!

11 Dec 2013

We live in a very fast moving world nowadays, with the evidence showing, for example, that more data has been collected in the last ten years than in the rest of human history put together, and that this amount will be doubled in the next three years. And nowhere is this more important than in the technology sector, which is by its very nature constantly evolving and rarely standing still.

In accordance with this, another one of the biggest areas of change over the last few years has been in the field of social media. Once viewed as little more than a curiosity for teenagers, today social media is a critical part of commercial society, and of course anyone who’s anyone has numerous social media pages.

But the social media revolution has been far from predictable. Initially, Facebook gained a huge advantage over the already established MySpace, which made it look at one time that the brainchild of Mark Zuckerberg would become the king of this realm.

But, of course, you cannot let the grass grow under your feet in the fast-moving world of social media, and one second Facebook was the world’s biggest social media site, and the next Twitter had dethroned it and disappeared over the horizon. Already Twitter is being challenged by Snapchat, Instagram is becoming increasingly popular, and there are a variety of other sites available as well.

Naturally, the company who are most readily associated with the Internet aren’t keen on being left out of this, so Google have launched the Google+ site. This is a social media site with a difference; it also offers an authorship tool that associates web-content directly with its author, and thus has been a particular favourite with businesses due to its somewhat more serious nature and image than the likes of Twitter and Facebook.

Of course, being involved with cloud computing, business and technology moves pretty quickly for BackupVault as well. Naturally, we already have Twitter and Facebook pages, but we’re always keen to do more to keep our customers in the loop regarding what’s going on with the company.

So in order to address this and do a better job of keeping our customers up-to-date with everything that is going on with our business, we have now launched a Google+ page, which we intend to populate very heavily in the coming weeks and months.

The increasing prominence of Google+ means that we were keen to embrace this important new site as widely as possible. So you can access our new Google plus page here, and you will be able to find out all of the latest news and information about BackupVault there in the near future.
