Getting Started With Google Plus

The VERY first thing I’d do at Google+ is go to the settings gear in the upper right hand corner and work out my privacy settings. when you start, you won’t have

any people in your Circles (which is how Google Plus organizes people), but some people might have already added you. You can click on the “Circles” Tab and that will show you which Circles are prebuilt for you. I renamed all of mine. You can do the same by double-clicking them, then selecting Rename.

I did this so that people wouldn’t be put off by terms like “Acquaintance.” Mine have all kinds of weird names like “Keepers” and “Bacon Filchers” and “Attention Getters.” Name them however you want. Your Circles are yours. It’s how you view people’s info coming into you.

The first way I found people to follow was to find who interesting people were following. You can surf around that way, plus you can search for names of people you find interesting. Once you have a few interesting people to follow, Circles grow rather organically.
Add To the Stream

The Stream is the main message section of Google+ and you can add text, pictures, video, links, and place information there. You can choose who you share your information with, which is really cool. For instance, if we were all at SXSW in Austin Texas, instead of annoying all the people who weren’t there, we could just add people to circles for that event, and then only blast to those circles while we’re at that place. (Make sense?) So you can do location-specific and event-specific circle-making (though it takes some effort).

People add all kinds of things. I see lots more photos on here. I see more animated Gifs, which can be interesting or annoying, but they certainly do feel different than the stream of text in Twitter.

Many folks involved in social media are so ADD driven to the latest social network, they fail to fully explore and make use of the networks that they are already part of.

    Hello would you mind letting me know which web host you're utilizing?

    I've loaded your blog in 3 completely different
    browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster
    then most. Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a honest price?
    Kudos, I appreciate it!

    I don't know if it's just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering problems with your blog.
    It looks like some of the written text in your content are running off the
    screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening
    to them too? This could be a problem with my internet browser because I've
    had this happen previously. Appreciate it
