Utica Police Department announces Google+ page
UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Utica Police announced a replacement Friday for their popular, yet controversial, Facebook page.
Councilmembers Frank Vescera and Jim Zecca had written a resolution asking the city, more specifically the mayor, to lift the ban on the page.
Hauck says Google+ has a better ability to control the comments on posts.
Google+ is a relatively new social media service, owned by Google, to compete with the likes of Facebook and Twitter, using a lot of similar features as Facebook. Commenting is still a large part of the site's makeup.
A May report from a web analytics firm says Google+ is the second-largest social media site in the world with around 360 million active users, about 1/3 of Facebook's 1.1 billion active users.
WKTV is also on Google+ if you want to add us to your circles: http://bit.ly/11pcfEk
