Some early adopting social activists lucky enough to be invited to test-drive Google+ planned to use it to organize questions for President Obama's Twitter town hall Wednesday, she said.But Google is trying to hold back the tide and reserve Google+ for individuals, at least for the time being.
And although Google is focusing on individual profiles and not encouraging the equivalent of organizational Facebook fan pages, some nonprofits are "hacking to get it," said Beth Kanter, a blogger who focuses on how nonprofits are using social media to bring about change.
KaBoom, which helps communities build children's playgrounds, has started a Google+ site. So has the group Bullying UK, which already has more than 3,000 people in its circle.
Pro-life activists have found Facebook and other social media sites to be a useful tool for organizing pro-life campaigns, educating undecided people, and reaching out to mothers in crisis pregnancies. It's only a matter of time before Google+ joins our toolbox.
If you're using Google+, what do you think of it? Do you see opportunities for pro-life outreach? Should Secular Pro-Life join early?
