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.

    Excellent site you have here but I was curious if you knew of any user discussion forums
    that cover the same topics discussed here? I'd really like to be a part of community where I can get advice from other knowledgeable
    individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.

    Thanks!

    Its area means excellent situations to get a winter sun split; as do the stunning white shores, rugged foothills and colorful capital,
    Havana.

    I do not know whether it's just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with
    your website. It seems like some of the text
    within your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This may be a problem with my browser because I've had this happen before.
    Thanks
