BY LINCOLN JACOBE – HONOLULU, HAWAII – The Internet has been buzzing over the newest innovation from Google called “Google+” (Google-plus). Now is your chance to learn how this new social media platform can benefit your bottom line at the Second Annual Hawaii Social Media Summit being held at the Hawaii Convention Center on Wednesday, October 19th from 9:00 a.m. to 4: 00 p.m.

“It’s time to learn about Google+ because all businesses should care about their online reputation, what customers have to say and where they are saying it,” said Quincy Solano, president of Technology News Bytes. “Social media marketing is changing at lightning speed and we all need to keep up with the trends or our businesses will suffer.”


The whole concept for Google+ was created around the idea that sharing on the Internet should be personal, which has not been entirely true with many of today’s popular social media clients. Whenever someone shares a video, picture, link, etc. on the Internet, Google says it is displayed publicly for the world to see. The company now says this new service will give users much more control.

Symposium speakers from around the nation will share their best practices and insights on developing and implementing large scale social marketing and advertising strategy. Presentations will focus on Google+, why businesses need to understand social media, how to formulate content, create a social outreach plan to inform, persuade and ultimately convert customers and how it affects the company’s bottom line.

The Summit is part of the 8th annual Technology and Internet Expo, the best place to see the newest and hottest products, services and cutting-edge innovations in technology. Attendees will learn how to integrate social media into their business, allowing them to generate leads, keep up with their companies industry, and monitor the online conversation about their business.
