curator Circle0As promised yesterday, here is the #CuratorCircleEdition  4Wisdom of this circle: Take time to view the profile of those you add if you care for the quality of the content shared on G+!Some of you that show interest to be included in the circle will not find themselves in. It is not an hazard; the minimum one can do while asking for inclusion in a shared circle is to include the sharer page or profile. Also due to the maximum space of 500 profiles, others have been kept for the next circle.Rules of the circle:1. Plus and share the circle (add me if you haven't done it yet)2. Comment to ask for inclusion. And enjoy your day.2014-05-06 13:53:46501361123

Google Plus Stories YouTube Channel... submit your story

Did you know that there was a Google+ Stories Channel on YouTube? A Place where people can get their story told in amongst great company?

Link: http://www.youtube.com/user/GooglePlusStories/Custom?x=home

I'll admit, I missed this! And I'm a YouTube / G+ Fan! Whoops!
It looks like it was started May 24, 2012 and it features cool Video Stories about people and how they interact with/utilize Google Plus.

There is a place where you can fill in a form or send an email describing your 'story' and I'm guessing that you may get a reply from someone at Google+ if they want to take it to the next level.

Since +Sarah Hill is so prominently featured and her TV station as well, perhaps she can tell us how it works!

I subscribed to the YouTube Channel and will keep you updated when I see new videos posted. Did you know this existed? Do you plan on submitting a story?

Another great tip from a great Tipster

Clickable chat names
Not sure if this is new, but it's pretty handy. The names within a Google+ chat pane are now clickable and leading to the about page of the person you are chatting with.

This is a handy app

Clean up your circles  * Recycle Google+ *

Today I found I couldn't add some people I wanted to add, so I asked for help.  +J.L. Btwee pointed me toward an app that let me clean out the inactive plussers (is that an oxymoron).  You can set a "no posts since" date and remove the folks who don't post.  I went back three months and cleared out several hundred.  

The app from Chrome is called Uncircle Inactives+ and is found at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/dhcfgcecigkknnimiljlbcjmnbeeodhl?hl=en-US.  ___This is a handy app

If you have not heard yet yes GooglePlus is changing in a big way.

Toward a simpler, more beautiful Google

We've just begun the worldwide rollout of a more functional and flexible version of Google+. We think you’ll find it easier to use and nicer to look at, but most importantly, it accelerates our efforts to create a simpler, more beautiful Google.

So simple, so easy and yet so many don't do it. This is a great tip from +Dolidh Young

One of the best tips I have to help you get circled is to fill out your profile.

I know that I made sure my profile was filled out fairly early on in my G+life. But it seems that not everyone has found that elusive Edit Profile button.

As part of a wee series I've called Quick tips on Google+ (Quick videos under 4 minutes... this one under 2... Just!), here's the next video.

A super-quick guide on the basics of where to edit your About section of the profiles. Ideal for those that are only displaying whether they are male or female and want to spice things up. ^_^

I have recorded another, fuller version of this, but I've not finished editing it, as it's over 18 minutes long. I'm not sure if people would find it as useful as the basics to get to the editing section. Let me know in the comments if it'd help and also what quick tips you'd like to see next.

Add people to circles right from notifications in Gmail

We've made a small tweak that improves Circle notification messages in Gmail. From now on whenever someone adds you to a circle, you can add them back right from the Google+ notification email. Just mouse-over the "Add to Circle" button and pick the circles you want, or create a new circle. The button will show you if this person is already in your circles. Check it out and let us know what you think.___Google+ is spreading across the Google landscape. Now you can add people to circles right from Gmail.

Yet another great feature being brought to mainstream hangouts.
Soon everyone will be able to make phone calls from inside a G+ hangout!
Just as an added bonus calling the US will still be free!!

Graduating another extra: making phone calls from inside Hangouts

In the past few months, we’ve graduated two widely-used features from Hangouts with extras to the main Hangouts experience: screensharing and Google Docs. Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re graduating a third and very popular feature -- the ability to call a phone number from Hangouts. Calls to the US and Canada are free, and international calling rates are super, super low (www.goo.gl/TWv2L)

To dial in someone:
- When you’re in a hangout, click on the “Invite” button and then on the “+telephone” link.
- Enter the number you want to dial, and hit “Add.” (Note: You can only call one number at a time. Dialing a second phone number will replace the existing call.)

As always, let us know what you think in the comments, or via the “Send feedback” button!

Rearrange photos and move photos between albums

Hi, I’m +Isaac Sparrow an Engineer on the Google+ Photos team.

Rearranging photos and moving them between albums are two of our top feature requests. Today, we’re excited to launch an album organizer so you can better tell the story of your photos.

Sort photos by time: Click Order by date to sort all photos in the album by the photo date, from earliest to latest. Click it again to sort them from latest to earliest.

Reorder your photos: Select the photos you want to reorder and drag them to their new position in the album. You can also move selected photos to the start or end of the album by clicking Move to top or Move to bottom.

Move or copy photos to another album: Clicking Move lets you move or copy selected photos to one of your other albums or to a new album.

Delete a bunch of photos: Click Delete to delete the selected photos.

Once you are done, click Done organizing to return to your album view. Happy story-telling and keep the feedback coming!___We have seen this requested a lot and now here it is. Easily Re-Arrange your Google+ images!

Things just got a lot nicer looking for Google+ mobile

Keeping up with Google+ on the go just got easier. We launched a newer, cleaner design of the Google+ experience for mobile web and support for 60 locales. Now it is easier to find, enjoy, and share the content you care about in Bengali, Icelandic, Swahili and more!

Check it out at plus.google.com on your mobile browser - you should see the updated web app if you're on an Android, iOS, or Blackberry 7 device.

If you run into any problems, you can report them by selecting Send feedback from the gear menu on the Home screen.

One of the coolest new updates for a while!

Google+ Hangouts: making it easier to invite others

Hangouts are great for catching up with the people you care about, and today we're making it easier to invite your circle of friends to join you.

Once you're inside the hangout, you'll see the familiar "invite" dialog on one side. On the other, however, you'll now see pictures of people in your circles:

- Those currently online appear higher in the list, making it easier to hang out right away
- You can also hover over a particular person to see their online status
- Simply click on a person's face to add them to your invite list

Once your list is set, just hit the "Invite" button to invite your friends to your hangout.

Ripples now in over 60 languages!
Also see how URLs are shared across Google+

Updates to Ripples: 60+ languages; see how links get shared
#googleplusupdate #ripples

Back in October, we launched ripples to help visualize how public posts get shared on Google+ (http://goo.gl/6qhVu). Today we're rolling out two improvements that bring ripples to more people, and more types of content. Check out a new ripple (http://goo.gl/6se8K)!

1) Like the rest of Google+ (http://goo.gl/1eSl0), ripples are now available in over 60 languages. So whether you prefer Viwimbi, Strengir, or Jeka, you can now watch the content you care about flow across the network.

2) Ripples can now show you how links get shared, not just individual posts. Take +Sundar Pichai's recent post about Chrome for Android, for example (http://goo.gl/u60O7):

- Before, ripples would only display activity around Sundar's specific post.
- Today, because Sundar attached a link to his post, ripples displays all public shares of that URL, all across Google+.
- To use this new feature, simply "View ripples" on any publicly-shared post with a link attachment (see screenshot), or visit a ripples page, then type the URL you're interested in.

As always, leave comments to let us know what you think!

If your new to Google+ these tips will help out a lot!

Three Easy Steps to Start Using Google+! (Highlights)

As a new user of Google+ there are three items of “Housekeeping” that you should take care of before you jump in. The first thing you should do is Edit Your Profile , every section and in every tab. Permissions have now been expanded so that you can define each section independently of another, so you need to adjust those to suit your online privacy needs. You control your privacy on your profile. One example now is that you can turn on the email feature and choose which of your circles can see and use it. (More on circles in a moment)

Next, click on Google+ Settings on the upper right in your Google black bar (the gear icon), and adjust your email and other settings you will find there. While there, glance at the other settings, and you’ll notice too that the Help section from the Gear dropdown is OUTSTANDING!

Next, you go to your Circles. Circles will be very important to you, as they are used not only for who you wish to post to, but also who you wish to read from. Adjust your current “contacts” in those circles as you wish, and create any new ones BEFORE you start adding people since adding people to your circle of contacts requires you put them in a circle. You can change the circles and the people in them at any time, and you can put someone in more than one circle, but this will give you a good start and familiarize you with how they work. Notice that anyone you have blocked previously, is now in a Blocked circle! So you can review that and maybe make adjustments there. Looking for your friends, family and contacts at Google+ ? Click on Find and Invite - this will populate each time starting with people you may already know from your Gmail and Google. As time goes on, it will continue to populate with suggestions from your contacts' circles that you may know as well. Just drag them to the circle of your choice. If they have a mail icon showing, that means they aren’t here yet but you can still add them to a circle now and when they come, they’ll automagically be in the circle you want them.

Circles are limited to 5000 PER circle, as well as 5000 TOTAL of all circles.

Finally, make sure you are using an “actual” name on your profile. Initials, symbols, characters, words, sentences, numbers, etc can flag your account. This is not just for Google+. Names are now required on all Google profiles. If you have a nicname, there is a section for that as well. One of the great features here is that you can mention someone in a post by typing either @ or + and then the actual name, and you will see a list populating as you type to add them to a post or comment. Google's Name Policy here: http://goo.gl/s2SDD

Now, you are ready to post something! Notice that if you post TO any of your circles or to extended circles, this will be depicted as “limited”. That means those that your post was posted to CAN reshare within their circles. If it’s an innocuous post, share it publicly so that others can share freely. If all you post is limited and can’t be shared, others will have to post it manually and you don’t get credit for the post, and you deserve credit! If it’s personal, choose a circle. You can also NOW turn off reshares by locking the post as well as turn off comments, by using the dropdown feature on every one of your posts.

If you have any questions, just post them! Everyone here is more than happy to help. Currently you will see a LOT of Google+ Tips and Tricks being posted by everyone, so watch for those. Remember - Google+ is still in Field trials and there is a great Feedback feature for posting any issues that can’t be resolved by asking, or use it for making suggestions once you become familiar with how things work. It’s probable that there are some features you will not be seeing yet due to these being Field trials, (like vanity profile urls) so be patient. Google is listening!

Anyway, this will get you started. Enjoy!

http://www.google.com/support/profiles/

Google+ Tip - If you wish to bookmark posts here, just create an EMPTY circle, name it Bookmarks or Notes, and then share it to that empty circle. You can then access it later in the left Sidebar where your Circles (filters) are listed.

Please feel free to share this via the "Share feature" on Google+.

If you use Google Docs inside hangouts this is a great tip to get around the 16:9 problem some people have been seeing

☺ Google Docs Presensation Tip - Wide Screen work around.☺

PowerPoint and Google Docs Presensation creates slides in 4:3 format
● 10 x 7.5 inches - 720x540 pixels.
PowerPoint also does 16:9 wide screen.
● 10 x 7.63 inches - 720x405 pixels.
════════════════
☹ Google Docs Presensation does not do this now.
► Google Plus hangouts are in the 16:9 wide screen format.
════════════════
If you want to make a Google Docs Presensation in the wide-screen format this is how you cando it.
● Create a single slide in PowerPoint.
● Go to Design then Page Setup and chose "On Screen Show 16:9" click OK and save it.
● Import in to a Google Docs Presensation.
☛ To make more slides you can use "New slide" or "Duplicate slide".

"There are a number of hidden features like this in the new presentation editor where we have support for the feature, but don't yet expose the tools for manipulating it in the UI. Other examples: gradients on shapes, and themed tables."

GOOGLE+ OUTPACES TWITTER ON BRANDS

Brands are now getting more traction on Google+ than on Twitter, even though the 140-character channel recently launched brand pages to make itself more attractive to marketers, writes Steve Mullins.

Over on Google’s Google+ network, though, there was far more moving and shaking, with +H&M and +Burberry each picking up 280,000 new users in January.

Now it is easier t find the people you want to follow

Google+ Circles: cleaner look & feel, better suggestions
#googleplusupdate #circles

The Circles page is great for customizing your existing connections, as well as discovering new ones, and today we're excited to roll out improvements along both dimensions.

First, you'll notice that Circles are nicer to look at, and much easier to use, including:

- A new left-hand navigation menu
- Quick access to your email address book(s)
- Circles that shrink in size on smaller screens

Second, and building on earlier work by +Simon Tong, +Jeff Dean and +Sanjay Ghemawat (http://goo.gl/1fhF1), we've made lots of improvements to "Find People." Simply type the name of a person or page you're interested in, and we'll suggest related individuals and organizations to add to your circles. (http://plus.google.com/circles/find)

We're always working to make Circles fast, fluid and fun, so let us know what you think in the comments, and keep the feedback coming!___Now it is easier t find the people you want to follow

It is the little things that can make all the difference.

When I woke this morning and checked my stream I noticed something had changed overnight!! It seems the Google team have made a slight interface change and have put more of a prominence on Starting a Hangout.

The Icon has been moved from halfway down the right-hand side to the very top (see the image). This is obviously a move to encourage more people to start a hangout, by making it more obvious.

Next great move would be to include some sort of My Hangouts or Hangout Canopy style feature into the interface itself. Thanks Google+ Dev Team

Some great tips on how to keep your Google+ pictures organised and up to date

Google+ photo management tips and tricks

Sometimes you want to do something that the standard Google+ photos interface doesn't allow you to do, but fortunately there's work arounds for most of them.

Do note these aren't necessarily easy to do, so unless you edit your photos before posting them and have something of a portfolio on Google+ these might not be worth it for you.


Moving photos without losing it's comments and +1's

What happens to me quite often is that I post a photo directly in a post and I have no idea if people will really like it or not - perhaps this is partially inexperience or maybe I'm just to close to the subject matter to judge if it is a really great photo or not.

However I like having my most viewed photos in a Portfolio album, so the way I moved them if they do get a lot of comments, +1's and views is by:

- Go to https://picasaweb.google.com/
- Goto "Photos from posts" and find the photo you want to move there and open it
- Click 'Actions' -> 'Move to another album" and click ok on the warning

Presto, it will now be in the album and retain all of it's social interactions.


Uploading new edits of a photo

Sometimes I'll post a photo while I'm on a trip and because of the quick hotel-room-edit I know I need to revisit it at some time - or sometimes it's just a new burst of inspiration on how to process a photo - but either way I end up with a better version that I want to replace the original post with, you could post it as a separate photo of course but people tend to get bored if you post the same photo lots of times, so I prefer to replace the original one.

The way you do that is by:

- Download the desktop Picasa client from http://picasa.google.com/
- 'File' -> 'Import Google+ photos' (it will prompt you to login)
- Find the image you want to replace, right click on it -> 'Show in Finder'
- Then copy the new version of your image over the old Picasa version
- In Picasa right click on the image again and select:
'Online actions' -> 'Update online Photo'


Upload directly to your Portfolio and share

If you do know you want to include an image in an album like your portfolio you can upload it there directly through the G+ photos interface by clicking 'Add more photos', and it will ask you to share that image when it's done uploading.

The benefit of doing this is that it will only share that one image (giving you a nice and large preview), but people will be able to click next / previous to see the other images in your portfolio giving your other work more visibility.


Ordering your Portfolio by date

- Go to https://picasaweb.google.com/
- Open your Portfolio album
- Select 'Organize' and then use the 'By date (oldest first)' or 'By date (newest first)' options and click done

Making your Portfolio your first album on your photos tab

If you look at your photos page you'll see that it only shows 4 albums there, and an option to 'View all albums', since you probably want people to find your best images first and not send them through a wildly chaotic mix of your photos from posts it would be great if your portfolio would be in those first 4 albums right?

The way you do that is by:

- Go to https://picasaweb.google.com/
- Open your portfolio album
- Select 'Actions' -> 'Album properties'
- In the 'Date' field enter a date far into the future, for instance I've used Jan 1st 2016

Now it'll always show your portfolio in those first albums on your photos tab
(see https://plus.google.com/108189587050871927619/photos as example)

Google is always moving forward trying to make everyone fell welcome here on Google+

Toward a more inclusive naming policy for Google+

With Google+, we aspire to make online sharing more like sharing in the real world. And during the Google+ signup process, we've asked users to select the name they commonly use in real life.

Since launch we've listened closely to community feedback on our names policy, as well as reviewed our own data regarding signup completion. The vast majority of users sail through our signup process -- in fact, only about 0.1% submit name appeals.

When we analyze the set of all name appeals on Google+, we find that they generally fall into three major categories:
- The majority (60%) of these users want to simply add nicknames.
- About 20% of appeals are actually businesses (who are inadvertently trying to set up their business as a Profile, rather than using Google+ Pages which were intended for this purpose.)
- And the remaining 20% would either prefer to use a pseudonym or another unconventional name.

Today we’re pleased to be launching features that will address and remedy the majority of these issues. To be clear - our work here isn’t done, but I’m really pleased to be shipping a milestone on our journey.

Nicknames and Names in Another Script

Over the next week, we’ll be adding support for alternate names – be they nicknames, maiden names, or names in another script – alongside your common name. This name will show up on your Google+ profile and in the hovercards which appear over your name. In the next few weeks, we’ll be displaying it more broadly as part of your name in other areas of Google+ as well. So if you’re Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jane Doe (Smith), or Saurabh Sharma (सौरभ शर्मा), you can now communicate your identity the way you want to.

To add an alternate name, go to your Google+ profile, click Edit Profile, select your name and click on “More options.” (See attached photos)

It’s important to remember that when you change your name in Google+, you’re changing it across all services that require a Google Profile.

Other Established Identities

On Google+, we try to flag names which don’t represent individuals, such as businesses or abstract ideas which should be +Pages. Sometimes we get this wrong, so starting today we’re updating our policies and processes to broaden support for established pseudonyms, from +trench coat to +Madonna.

If we flag the name you intend to use, you can provide us with information to help confirm your established identity. This might include:

- References to an established identity offline in print media, news articles, etc
- Scanned official documentation, such as a driver’s license
- Proof of an established identity online with a meaningful following

We’ll review the information and typically get back to you within a few days. We may also ask for further information, such as proof that you control a website you reference. While a name change is under review, your old name will continue to be displayed. For new accounts without an old name, your profile will be in a non-public, read-only state during the review. Either way, you'll be able to see the status of your review by going to your profile.

For more details, check out the Google+ Names Policy: http://support.google.com/plus/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1228271

To reiterate, the features described herein will be rolling out over the next couple days.

Today is a small step towards improving the ways in which you can communicate your identity on Google+. We will be listening to feedback from the community and will continue to refine all aspects of how we handle names and identity over the coming weeks, months and beyond.

Thanks for your continuing feedback and support.

Bradley and Team G+

Great tip abut backing up your stuff

Google+ Tips: #1 - Back up for FREE all of your photos and docs to your FREE Gmail account(s)

I've done this for years. Any time I have photos or docs - instead of paying for something like Carbonite, or using Cloud storage services - I send copies of everything from myself to myself. I've used this for home and work - and it's an easy way to not lose photos and docs when something happens like a computer blowing up or dying.

I've had that happen before - even with a surge protector - two computers instantly died - and all those photos not backed up were lost. Using Gmail - I give all of my pictures unique names and even put hashtags and titles in each email. Later - retrieval is instantaneous. As well, not that Gmail works well with Picassa and everything is being integrated - it's nice to have everything in one place.

No, I don't advocate keeping all of your eggs in one basket...

I also backup all files to an external hard drive. But for ease-of-use - and for quickly locating folders, files, and images - this works well for me. Now, I have nothing against these other paid services but why put out extra money when you don't have to?

Right now, you can get around 5GB of storage per Gmail account (grows constantly) - and I stopped counting somewhere around 13 accounts - so doing the math you can see there is an awesome FREE tool available to you right now that will allow you to spend your money on other toys!

If you are appointing managers to your pages this is a must read.

Posted by +Toby Stein on behalf of the Pages team:

5 Things You Need To Know About The New Features For Google+ Pages:

1. Manager Invitation Email Flexibility
When someone receives an email invitation to be a page manager, they can accept that invitation using any email address. They do not need to use the one to which the invitation was sent. This allows your future co-managers greater flexibility in running your page from the account that works best for them.

2. Notifications Reset
We're really excited to be able to provide your page with our beautiful new notifications format and the red counter. Keep in mind that notifications are not unique to each manager. When one manager logs in to read the notifications, they will reset to 0. The next manager to log in will see the counter at 0 even if there are notifications they have not personally read.

3. Transfer Ownership Before Removing Your Original Account
When the profile owning a page is shut down, the entire page is deleted regardless of whether there are page managers. Make sure that if you're planning to remove the account that built a page you transfer ownership of the page first. Once it's gone, it can't be recovered!

4. Deliver Your Notifications
By going into your page's settings panel, you can add an email address to receive notifications for your page. That may be a shared email alias that your entire team can monitor and respond to.

5. Signing Posts Is More Important Than Ever
You can have up to 50 managers contributing to your page, but readers will not know who is posting what. +Mention yourself or whoever else is behind the content to make sure you're credited!___If you are appointing managers to your pages this is a must read.

*It is nice to be nice. *
Although we oursleves are not connected with +Google You can mention us and we can see if we can help out where we can.

3 tips on how to give G+ feedback
(and 3 tips on how not to)

We're constantly improving Google+, and one of the best ways is by keeping track of what Google+ users want. Genius, right? :) So here are a few tips on how to provide your feedback.

DOs
1.) DO use the "Send feedback" button
- do it even if you think others have said the same thing - numbers matter
- "send feedback" isn't just for bug reports - it's for feature requests too
- send feedback even if the screen shot is wrong - just describe the problem
2.) DO start discussions with other Google+ users
- sometimes people can help each other out of a jam
- sometimes others have ideas on how to make your idea even better!
3.) DO +mention people like me and +Brian Rose
- preferably after some discussion with other Google+ users ;)
- even though "Send feedback" is our main source of info, we like to see organic discussions on what you like or don't like

DON'Ts
1.) DON'T be a jerk
- believe it or not, there's a polite way to say that you don't like something
- polite people get polite responses; mean people get... ignored or blocked? :)
2.)
3.)
You know what? #1 is a big enough one that I'm going to leave it at that.

Thanks to all of you who have given feedback. You've helped shape Google+ for the betterment of all mankind!*
* May be a slight exaggeration, but not by much.___*It is nice to be nice. *

Keeping an eye out for all the great Tips & Tricks that are posted here on Google+ can be hard work sometimes.

So we decided we would start looking for other people to start helping us out by making a few people managers. We are looking for people that not only post great tips themselves but regularly find great things to share with our 4,000+ followers.

Do you know someone that fits the bill? Let us know in the comments below

The people we select will have to be honest and be responsible for their actions and conduct themselves in a polite and respectful way when posting on behalf of +Google+ Tips And Tricks .

Our page will not be used to self promote (unless the post fits our regular Tips & Tricks ones) or to try and gain more follows, ie managers will not make posts asking for more followers.
