Google+ has taken off like no other social network before it. While it’s still in ‘limited field trial‘ mode, it’s already being seriously considered as a contender to take on Twitter

and Facebook. Journalists already use both those networks to great effect. Could Google+ see similar usage?

Some journalists have already started experimenting with Google+ as a way to share, discuss or source news. Here are a few examples:

  • Alexis Madrigal, Senior Editor at The Atlantic, is running an “experiment in real-time news” called The Atlantic PLUS, which he posts each day to his Google+ account. It comprises links to Atlantic stories, details of what he and other Atlantic journalists are working on that day, links to news on other websites and a photograph for the day.
