HubSpot Is Worth Nearly $1 Billion After Gaining 20% On First Day Of Trading

HubSpot had a good first day on Wall Street. The Massachusetts-based marketing software company is worth about $914 million after its stock closed at $30.10 — 20% higher than the $25 opening price — on the New York Stock Exchange.
HubSpot raised $125 million from the IPO, selling 5 million shares at the $25 price on Wednesday. The stock — with ticker symbol HUBS — opened at $32.99, according to Yahoo Finance
HubSpot offers marketing services for mid-sized businesses, which it defines as having between 10 and 2,000 employees. It offers marketing tools that include blogging, social media publishing and monitoring, marketing automation and analytics. In a Marketing Land survey conducted late last year, HubSpot was the third most-recognized marketing technology brand, behind Google and Moz and ahead of SalesForce, Adobe and others.
The company isn’t profitable. In 2013, it had $77.6 million in sales with a net loss of $34.4 million. In the first six months of 2014, it pulled in $51.3 million…

Will polls make Google Plus posts more engaging? Yes or No?

When Google Plus announced the release of the new poll widget, the one thing they didn’t do was put up a poll asking people how they feel about it. Is it a welcome option or a poor attempt to keep people on the site longer?
We know people love polls. We can’t resist sharing our opinion when all we have to do is click.
I put up a poll, answered my own question then was surprised by the fact that two more people responded within minutes.

That’s more engagement than I’ve seen on Google Plus since I created my profile! Maybe there is something to this poll thing.
The trouble with Google Plus has always been a lack of agreement on the numbers.
Earlier this year, the New York Times quoted these Nielsen stats:

Facebook had 128 million unique visitors to its website in the United States and 108 million to its smartphone app (that includes overlap of people who visit both the site and app.) They spent an average of six hours and 15 minutes on the site and nearly seven hours on the app during the mon…

Google Adds The Ability To Post Polls On Google+

What does Google+ have that Facebook doesn’t? Starting today, Google’s social network is giving pages and profiles the ability to create and post polls.
That’s a feature that Facebook took away from users in 2012 and Pages last year. The Facebook “Ask Question” polling feature is still available on Facebook Groups and some major media partners have access as well but it’s not generally available to Pages to the dismay of many small business owners. There’s a long tail of complaints about it on this post in the Facebook help community. When it eliminated polling for Pages, Facebook said the feature was redundant and that Pages could create the same experience by merely asking questions and getting answers in comments.
Google+ apparently disagrees, moving to add an extra interactive feature that there’s clearly a demand for. It a nice differentiator for the social network, which is playing catch-up to Facebook and fighting the perception that it’s not one of Google’s priorities.
