#Podcast – Google+ at one: Lessons from Time.com and FT.com

June 29th, 2012Posted by in Podcast

It is one year since Google+ was launched, with news outlets and brands being given the ability to create pages in November.

In this podcast we hear how Time.com and FT.com have each achieved more than one million followers on the platform in just seven months.

Journalism.co.uk technology editor Sarah Marshall speaks to:

  • Cathy Sharick, managing editor of Time.com
  • Bede McCarthy, executive editor of FT.com
  • Sunny Hundal, founder of Rippla, which measures the social media ‘ripples’ of news stories

Sharick and McCarthy share their lessons, tips and future plans for Time magazine and the Financial Times Google+ pages and Hundal explains research he has carried out into the number of stories being shared on Google+.
