When it comes to senior living and long term care communities, influencers and loved ones are beginning their searches online. Most prospective residents and their families search online first before deciding which communities they would like to tour and eventually call home – and they’re using Google to do it.
Google+ is showing posts and reviews in search results now, and serving up ads based on your interests. Facebook just announced Graph Search, which allows Facebook users to search the content posted by friends for info on everything from preschools to restaurants. Google has purchased Zagat, and Bing is showing Yelp reviews. And now, Google+ Communities are creating a place for people with similar interests to meet, share and make new friends in a search-centric environment.
