Kyle Beck66So, I know a lot of my friends who have joined +Google+ wonder "What's the point? I have a Facebook." Well that comparison was flawed from the beginning, although many people made it while trying to describe G+. There are similarities, but one of my favorite features in G+ has been the ability to share Circles with others. In fact I'm not sure I would see the point if I hadn't been shared this very circle by +Robert Scoble (IIRC) early on in my G+ membership. It has proven an invaluable source of up-to-the-minute Tech News over the past year and really showed me how G+ is very different from FB.See, when you visit FB the information you receive is solely from your family and real-life acquaintances. This can be great for keeping up with people you don't see regularly, etc., but it is very hard to reach out to new people who share your interests through FB. Not so on G+. You can create and share groups of friends and pages (Circles) to organize your social interests. In effect, this creates dynamic communities where you can choose who you interact with.Anyways, I hope you will consider adding this Circle, packed full of Tech Enthusiasts. If you don't really use G+ or wonder what the point is, that goes double for you!2012-06-30 00:28:364881003
Hanni Parker5,145British Circle but also a great Starter Circle to give your stream a boost.(Please re-share as you see fit) +see instructions below if reqd!)Or rather the #english #welsh #scottish and #northern #irish circle, with a few adopted and expats to boot.I decided in the end to make a sub 100 circle, to make it easier to add/notify/curate etc, so if you are not here, please do not be offended, comment below and I shall edit the post to give you an honorary mention ;)There are people from all walks of life there, #business people, #journalists , #entrepreneurs , a few #photographers (not too many), a couple of TV people namely +Robert Llewellyn and +Rory Cellan-Jones who actually use G+ to its potential, post lots of interesting things and interact with their followers. There are #funny people, #science people, and "Jack of all trades" people like myself. #christians and #atheist and some #couldnotgiveadamns too. I feel it gives a good mixed bag, as that is what the UK is :)You may also like to check out:Men ...................................................

Make a new circle, call it British, or Hannah's recommended or something, then browse that stream at your leisure, you will soon find people on your wavelength, that you can then drag over to your relevant circles. If someone annoys you, you can simply uncircle them, and carry on.

Yo Google+ers. Remember how I spread the word about G+ when it launched? Now's the time to do something for me, please spread my 'It Gets Better' video about being gay and from a faith background and telling young people that 'gay cures' don't work. It's been shared by the top names on Facebook and Twitter on these sorts of things, so lets show everyone how much social good G+ can do!

So the day has finally come, today is my 30th BIRTHDAY! To celebrate, I've made a montage of my favourite images from what was the best decade of my life. You can see me thin, fat, thin again, hairy, smooth and how I am now (which I think is the best). You'll find me in drag, with my family, friends, celebrities, Channel 4 colleagues, two Prime Ministers, at least one porn star and I even ride a 10 foot gyrating penis :) Wow! I hope the next decade will be so eventful! (It's set to my favourite song from the year I turned 20)

After six amazing years as the Technology Correspondent for Channel 4 News, I've decided to leave to found a new start-up with +Alex Halliday and a co-founding team from around the world. It's going to disrupt an industry that has basically been left behind by technology and the social revolution so it's not another social network, photo sharing app, social commerce, daily deals, music or video service, there are lots of these already. What we're building will really change an industry for the better, cause a lot of disintermediation and save consumers and small businesses a lot of money. 

It's very exciting and I can't wait! P.S. It means I'm going to be living in London and New York, so USA watch-out!

My colleague just asked me: "Ben are you still on Google+?" The answer is yes, but not as much as I used to be. How about you? How is the evolution of Google+ going for you? To me, it's just basically Twitter 2.0 now, none of my real world friends are on it any more...

So proud to have started my journalistic career at The Times. It's fantastic that this Rupert Murdoch controlled newspaper, which is the voice of the establishment in the UK is 100% backing gay marriage equality :) This is something we should all +1

I explain to Journalism.co.uk why I'm using Facebook Subscribe and why it's taken off for me in a way that Google+ can't right now unfortunately (specifically talk about G+ just before 11 mins into the pod). Quite an interesting programme with the NYT's Liz Heron and Neal Mann of Sky News. Do you agree with me or should I be spending more time on G+?

Yo Google+ers. Remember how I spread the word about G+ when it launched? Now's the time to do something for me, please spread my 'It Gets Better' video about being gay and from a faith background and telling young people that 'gay cures' don't work. It's been shared by the top names on Facebook and Twitter on these sorts of things, so lets show everyone how much social good G+ can do!

In response to the crisis going on in the Jewish and Christian communities over 'gay cures', I have recorded this very personal It Gets Better video. Let me know what you think.

Interesting ding dong from Microsoft and Google over privacy. What are your thoughts about Google's new single privacy policy? Will you stop using Google because of it given that there is no real change other than they can amalgamate data together? What's interesting is that this Google official blog highlights Google Dashboard, a product that I've constantly said in public debates on the issue Google should shout out about more. I'm not sure that anyone else offers something as comprehensive and it's bloody useful too for finding web links/ ads you clicked a long time ago and didn't bookmark. It was a life saver when I needed to find a taxi company I'd already used in Milton Keynes after a rock concert I unexpectedly found myself at!

Glad I happened to catch this: 20,000+ Facebook subscribers! I hope that some day I'll be able to actually facilitate that sort of number of people to achieve something good in the world! Facebook, Google+ and Twitter do have an extraordinary ability to achieve good if you can catch it and harness it at the perfect moment. Stick with me :) and do 'Like' the causes I've promoted on FB xx

This is my old school and an institution I love and respect. It raises a very important question about religious freedom and homosexuality. Was the school right to even mention 'gay cure' organisations to teengaers?

I'm actually really surprised and saddened that this isn't the law anyway. With HIV and STI rates on the rise again, why is it necessary for porn actors not to use protection while making a film? The sheer volume of content that is produced to satisfy the long tail of demand online means that the internet is in many ways causing more actors to put themselves at risk, more times. Perhaps we'll see this spread to other locations or depressingly, perhaps, porn companies will just relocate out of LA.

Hmm, my Facebook subscribers is really jumping up. Now got almost 8,000. An increase in about 4,000 in a week. What do you think is behind this growth? Is it the Facebook algorithm or something odd?
