Google + fan page?

I'm a total social media junkie and follow the band on Facebook and Twitter- and here of course- but the main site I use, Google + is almost completely lacking when it comes Turisas. There is a Turisas Mexico fan page but it posts in Spanish... I can translate but they really don't seem very active anyway..

I'm thinking about maybe starting a fan page there in English to post all the links (like the live vids from the australia concerts that are popping up now on youtube) and information I find online, as well as having a place for Turisas fans to find each other on this new social platform. I would list that it is completely fan operated.

What does everyone think?

Here is the Turisas Mexico Fans page so you can see what I'm talking about (you may need a G+ account to see it, I'm not sure- they're easy to get, all you need is a gmail account)

https://plus.google.com/u/0/?tab=wX&...62585595/posts

I'd love to start something like this up, especially with Paganfest coming up right around the corner!

yes? no?

I'm always trying to leave facebook with no success. I used to "manage" friends on FB et bands on Myspace. But when Myspace died facebook took over. And now I'm stuck.
If you create a fanpage I'll join, but being active is another issue ^__^

PS : sorry for the mistakes, it's too early.

There are so many social media sites out there right now.. I think G+ is going to be around to stay, but I don't think it will be a priority for bands in general for a while yet. The fan page will get the foot in the door and give fans a place to roost until the rest of the world comes on board.

I meant to link the street team FB pages under 'Recommended Links' too but missed doing it this morning... I'll do that tonight when I get home.

Here is the page if anyone is looking for it:

https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/105354...10233509/posts

If there are any questions about G+ in general you can always PM me- I'm always online SOMEWHERE...

yup, we're up to 9 now actually! woot!!
.

it has to do with what the members choose to show on their page as to 'who is in your circles' and 'who circled you'. When you get over a certain number it really doesn't matter but at this stage it's a little frustrating because I want to say 'HEY! LOOK! PEOPLE!' but in the end I'm just happy when people come on board

Well, I have the gallery up so the page looks a bit nicer and the posts seem to be getting some good response. With the band being in Australia I've had some nice new links to post this week. I really want to avoid over-posting at this point because I know that can turn some users off. We're up to 18 members and still growing, at this point I think it just needs some time (and some cross-promotion on my personal page) to pick up steam. Here's hoping anyway- I really feel this kind of music is under-appreciated in the US.
