In fact, according to Forbes magazine, Google+ is the second largest social network with 343 million active users. While you may be saturated with social media strategies and recommendations, Homes.com has outlined 10 compelling reasons why agents and brokers should use Google+ and get ahead of your competition to reach more prospects.
