Facebook's latest admission that they are reducing organic reach for page posts leaves small businesses with a social media marketing dilemma. I have traditionally held strong to my commitment to Facebook but they are killing themselves and small business marketing with these changes.

Jenn: Isn't the biggest challenge that it is a walled garden? Do you think that Google+ will overtake Facebook's leading position n the long run?

Facebook as a personal account is definitely a walled garden. However, I don't think that applies to business pages at all.

But Facebook is traditionally a reactive site - people sign up to follow your page AFTER they do business with you, not before. This is why it's hard to reach out and grow a fan base of potential clients. Twitter and G+, however, tend to be a little less reactive, and a little more proactive (prior to business purchases/interactions).

I don't know if G+ will overtake Facebook's position. At this point, I feel like it's Facebook's position to lose, not someone else's to take away. But G+ is a very useful and well integrated platform that offers so many great applications. So it will continue to grow and become more and more influential.
