Are your Google+ posts effective? Are social media influencers sharing and re-sharing your content, or are your brilliant missives largely being ignored? Google's Ripples feature is a visualization tool that makes it easy to find out. It creates an interactive graphic of the public shares of a post or URL on Google+. When you hover over a Ripples' circle, a pop-up window displays more information about the person who shared your post.
Ripples uses only publicly shared posts, which means you might not see all of the activity that's taken place. Still, Ripples' visualizations are a powerful demonstration of the reach of Google+--and whether your posts are having the impact you want.
