The “popular topics” are a comparison of those authors and what they write about.The average score of all verified content authors is 45.007 on Google+ and 44.176 on Twitter.More people have authenticated Twitter authorship than Google+. Twitter has approximately 80% verified authors, while Google+ has just 20%.ClearVoice is completely built in-house with a robust engineering staff.Intrigued?

So I wrote this book, first to help my students, but it caught on has loyal fans all around the world.  The Tao of Twitter teaches you the practical MINDSET for success, not just a bunch of theoretical or technical suggestions. If you follow the strategy in the book, I know it can work for you because I have seen it impact hundreds of lives.The Tao of Twitter is beyond a book. It's a movement.

martin shervington823,707Duct Tape Selling!Get ready to have your mind expanded by +John Jantsch!I had the good fortune to have an introduction to him by +Jamie Turner at the Social Media Marketing World conference earlier this year.With a new book out, this seemed like the perfect excuse to catch up and have a fast paced, crammed pack session with John as he lets you know all about his latest book 'Duct Tape Selling', and what you can expect to learn. Here is a taster for you...."A new paradigm gives salespeople the tools to think and act more like successful marketers The art of selling has evolved tremendously over the last few years. Today’s hectic pace demands that sales professionals rethink their strategies and practices. They must attract, teach, convert, serve, and measure while developing an individual brand that stands for trust and expertise.Now the popular author of Duct Tape Marketing teaches sales professionals how to apply the tactics of traditional marketing to their daily work. In Duct Tape Selling, salespeople will learn how to develop a marketing-based system to dramatically increase their effectiveness, stand above their competitors, and add value to their customer relationships.Jantsch flips the traditional business model—where marketers owned the message while sellers owned the relationships—on its head. These days, he argues, marketers must get better at relationships and sales must perfect the message and delivery."Find out more here: http://ducttapeselling.com/Sound good?

Mia Voss29,280#StarWarsNerdsUnite  as we discuss our favorite episodes & the upcoming new episodes.   I'll be nerding out with +Mike Allton, +Jeff Sieh +Carolyn Capern +martin shervington +Greg Trujillo and +Dustin W. Stout   ... who's in?!According to Wikipedia:May 4 is considered a holiday by Star Wars fans to celebrate the franchise's films series, books and culture.[2] The date was chosen as "May the 4th" due to its sounding similar to the series' phrase "May the Force be with you" in which fans commonly say "May the fourth be with you". The reference was first used on May 4, 1979 when Margaret Thatcher's political party placed an advertisement in The London Evening News following her taking office as Prime Minister that stated "May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations.In 2011, the first organized celebration of Star Wars Day took place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at the Toronto Underground Cinema. Produced by Sean Ward and Alice Quinn, festivities included an Original Trilogy Trivia Game Show; a costume contest with celebrity judges; and the web's best tribute films, mash-ups, parodies, and remixes on the big screen. The second annual edition took place on Friday, May 4, 2012Fans (even government officials[6]) have celebrated Star Wars in a variety of ways in social media and on television.Since 2013, Disney Parks have celebrated the holiday with several Star Wars events and festivities.[7][8][9] The Walt Disney Company had purchased Lucasfilm including the rights to Star Wars in late 2012.[10]Star Wars Day - May the 4th Be With You2014-05-04 23:00:0051

martin shervington823,707Who wants to join me as I interview Jay Baer about his New York Times best selling business book?We will be talking about the attitude/culture/approach of 'helping', including how Jay finds the culture on Google+; where he thinks we should be putting our attention right now, and where it is going in the future.Whether you are a business or an individual looking at your own approach, this should be a lot of fun and give you new insights too!What is 'Youtility' all about?Jay says..."The difference between helping and selling is just two letters. But those two letters are critically important to your company’s success.You’re not competing for attention only against other, similar products. You’re competing for attention against everything. To win in this hyper-competitive environment, you must ask “How can we help?”If you sell something, you make a customer today, but if you genuinely help someone, you create a customer for life. This is Youtility."Sound good? See you then!An interview with Jay Baer about his book 'YouTility"!2014-02-25 20:00:0077

Joshua Berg34,006Has your website been hit by the Google Panda, Google Penguin, or the EMD (Exact Match Domain) Update algorithms in the last year?Do you have a business site that mysteriously lost its high ranking in Google search almost overnight?Has your website traffic progressively gotten worse over the last 1 to 2 years, no matter how much work & money you spend on it?Did you previously invest a great deal optimizing your site's keywords and/or, building volumes of backlinks to your website?Do you have some knowledge of SEO & have you used any SEO tools & website plugins for keyword optimization?If any of the above sounds familiar, you've probably been visited by the 3 ghosts of Christmas Panda, Prenguin & the EMD Update. So I've invited a well known & experienced ghost buster to come & break it down for us.+Eric Enge is very knowledgeable on this subject, has written & talked a lot about these algorithms, how to clean up the old SEO mess, making reconsideration requests & sorting things out with Google. And I have no doubt you will get the goods on this one.I have seen many websites affected by these algorithms & many people don't even know it, besides that they lost a lot of website traffic. So at this special event we're going to get into the nitty gritty details on both how to tell if you've been affected & exactly how to go about recovery.If you're not sure whether this applies to your site, I'll bet it either does, or it will & you won't want to miss out on this.#GooglePenguin #GooglePanda #REALSMOhangouts  Google Panda & Penguin Discovery & Recovery - REALSMO2013-11-14 22:30:0075

Every person speaks one dialect naturally, in which they feel the most comfortable giving and receiving information.Respond to people in her/his iMA high dialect and you will reduce tension and increase communication, co-operation and trust.About James Knight:James, the creator of iMA, is brilliantly enthusiastic and dedicated to personal growth and development.

Daniel Mihai Popescu66,530This circle is called Amalgam :)It is a mixture of new and very old friends. Of course, the Invincible is always present :)I've been a little bit disappointed for losing some guys I've even grown so fond of lately, so fond that they were in my notification circle, something very rare. They left me without a word, but that's not a problem, because everything goes on :)You are not required to do a single thing, I'll mention you in comments, I hope you don't mind :) I do this because the notifications don't work with my account, it's still an enigma, so I can't say that if you receive a notification from me, you're a member in this circle. It's sure you're a member if I mention you. That's one thing.Another thing is that you, the members, don't have to share the circle. I can't pretend from you, what I don't do with your circles. It's somehow a kind of reciprocally membership, which is a signal for others :) You, my circle members, are some of the most precious people on G+, and you have to be sure of that.So, for my followers, especially the new ones, it'll be good for you to add this circle because you'll gain a lot on your stream! #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  2014-12-11 22:33:48494001

I've been very busy, but it's time to tell everyone about all of the awesome folks who support me on the plus. There are a lot of great plussers as well as a sprinkling of newly found friends in this circle.It is not a "snowball"  style of circle. If you received a notification you are in the circle.The Showcase part means that I am encouraging anyone who is a member of this circle to share a link to favorite post of their own in the comment section. We always have a lot of fun with that and learn more about each other, especially the newer members of the circle.Enjoy meeting the new people that you meet in this circle, and yes there are some new faces. Thanks for all of your support.Have a great week. #engagers   #engagerscircle   #engagersshowcasecircle   #sharedcircle   #sharedcircleoftheday  2014-12-06 16:49:3820436734

New Video Enhancement.
Seems to make a considerable difference...
h/t +Justine Rivero 

Great looking videos just got easier

We're all taking more videos than ever before, thanks to our mobile devices, but some of them turn out less than stellar (yes, it happens to us all). But starting today, you can make your videos look and sound better with Google+. 

I'm excited to announce that now, with one click, you can enhance the lighting, color, stability, and (coming soon) speech in your videos. Here’s how it works:

- Use Auto Backup to securely store the videos you shoot.
- Google+ will automatically analyze picture and audio quality. For best results make sure you have Auto Enhance turned on.  Learn more here: http://goo.gl/ycYHV4
- When we think we can make improvements, desktop Web users will see a banner asking whether you’d like to preview enhancements.
- The preview will show an instant side-by-side comparison so you can choose to apply changes or stick with the original.

In addition to the videos that Google+ suggests enhancing, you can choose to apply Auto Enhance to any videos you’d like:

- In Google+ on Mac, Windows, and Chrome OS, open a video, then choose More->Auto Enhance.
- In the Google+ Photos app on Android, open a video, tap the overflow menu, and then tap Auto Enhance.___New Video Enhancement.

Morning all!
When I was in Maresias, Brazil, I watched an earlier part of the surf competition with this chap Medina out on the waves - and now, he has become the world's number one.
This is huge for the village as he grew up there and why in part we set up +Surf Maresias as a G+ Page.
Still loads to do on the project with +Adriano JASH starting to blog soon (nudge) and +Vincent Brown continuing to work with us on www.surfmaresias.com (a beautiful sight he created). The aim being to a) put a village on the map with Google, and then b) help them to tell their unique story, which in turn will raise awareness of this place as a holiday destination. And for me, along the way, I am learning a lot, making it a great case study for PYB, as well as supporting the people who are now my friends.
Have a great Saturday.
Well done Brazil.

p.s. Happy Caturday!

The PYB Show!

Top This Tip Holiday Show

Twas the week before Christmas, and all through the plus, 
All the features were blurring, there was need to discuss. 
The widgets embedded, in pages with care,
In hopes a solution, soon would be there.  

The people all wrestled, their errors in red,
While streaming live data,  danced in their heads.
And Deb in her spreadsheets, was eying an app,
And hoping just once, she might sneak a nap.

When out on the net, there arose such a clatter,
We sprang from our desktops to see what was the matter.
On apples and windows, and pages of flash,
Nothing was working, that didn't need cash. 

The thoughts on the crest, of the new concept show
Gave the promise of working, with networks below.
When, what to our dots and our i's should appear,
But a promising post, of tips you should hear.

With a wily old trainer, some notes and a plan ,
You knew in a moment it must be old Stan.
More rapid than ever, with Martin they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name.

"Now Debi, Now, Mary! now, Greg with his LinkedIn!
With Christian on Facebook, And Travis on his end!
To the top of the tip, whether big whether small!
Now tip away! Tip away! Tip away all!"

They spoke not a word, but went straight to their work,
Just jolly good tipsters, not one was a jerk.
And giving their tips, on screen and in droves,
Their tips overfloweth, like fishes and loaves !

And when they were done, you could hear all their whistles,
As ideas were launched, like rockets and missiles.
And we hear them all call, as they browsed out of sight,
"Happy Tipping to ya'll, enjoy the sound bite!

The #pybshow  crew will be competing for the honor of the Top Tip:

+Greg Cooper, Team Member - PYB LinkedIn Page and Group
+Christian Karasiewicz, Team Member - PYB on Facebook
+Debi Davis, Team Member - Making the most of your TIME on G+
+Karen V Chin, Team Member - Life on The Plus

Our trusty MC, +Stan Bush, will be there to reign us all in (Santa at the reigns. Get it?), but won’t be able to keep us from handing out gifts . . . they’re starting to pile up over here.  We have signed copies of books and e-books from authors like +Mike Allton, +David Amerland, and +Ryan Hanley . . . and lots more.  You must be present and participating to get the gifts that will be handed out while the supply lasts.

British Museum

The British Museum was founded in 1753, the first national public museum in the world. From the beginning it granted free admission to all 'studious and curious persons'. Visitor numbers have grown from around 5,000 a year in the eighteenth century to nearly 6 million today.

Circloscope tip!
Very handy when your circles need a tidy up...

Removing No Follow Backs From Your G+ Circles
Watch Video: http://buff.ly/1yRrWta

As you begin nearing the 5,000 limit that Google has set for people in your circles, you are going to need to clean them up in order to remove people so you can add more. Removing people who are not following you back is a good place to start and you can easily see everyone who is not following you back with Circloscope. If there are some people or circles that you want to keep whether the people are following you back or not, you can easily exclude them or add them to a white list so you won't accidentally remove them when you are cleaning up your circles.

How many people do you think you have in your circles that aren't following you back? You can find out right now for FREE by downloading our free version for profiles at http://buff.ly/1yRrZVQ.

Please note: I am not earning commission or anything similar from this activity just am very interested in this area.

We are doing this as a PYB community activity, but I thought you may like to see it as well.

All about it here:

What is it all about?
The leadORS indicator gives you insight into your own communication style and the journey you need to lead to conduct effective "online conversations" personally, and within your organisation.

Why is this important in business today?
Attracting and engaging with customers, leading and retaining staff and staying ahead of the competition is of paramount importance for today’s business leaders. The leadORS indicator provides a solution to these challenges by understanding your communication style and helping you to transform business thinking through social engagement and digital citizenship. Sound good? 

What do you do next?
Well, it take about a minute to complete the questionnaire here: http://www.leadors.co
I've done it. I was a 'Scout' two year ago, and the last result yesterday was 'ORS'.

Note: if you log in using G+, you may see a spinning wheel, waiting for results - if this happens, click on your email at the top of that page and you should see it there.

The indicator will…
• Identify your preferred communication style online
• Take you on a journey to become Open, Random, Supportive (ORS), the most effective way to behave on the internet
• Identify simple steps to build your profile and communicate effectively online
• Show you how you can interact with communities online
• Review your team styles and identify typical brand advocates
• Build your business brand online and stand out ahead of the competition
Once we are rolling I will give you some more information on it all as well.

Finished the questionnaire?
Then check out this post to see more about each style: http://goo.gl/RmWYn

And here was the original post from 2 years ago too:  http://goo.gl/HWj48

Let me know in comments what the indicator has to say about your style.___

"The cold never bothered me anyway..."

If you've seen Britain's most watched YouTube video of 2014 (http://goo.gl/NbWbfo), you'll be familiar with 'Frozen' palaces - but what would it be like to live in one?

Enter this #Photosphere to explore a Canadian hotel made of ice - would you want to stay here?

Photospheres!
A brilliant tutorial...
Nice find +Kath Dawson, cc +James Dearsley 

PhotoSphere Tutorial: Capturing, Editing, Fixing, and Uploading.

It is long overdue, and a number of people have asked for me to do a tutorial in the past (such as +Cyrus Khan & +Fadhli Yunus), but I finally made a complete PhotoSphere tutorial to explain and demonstrate a number of different aspects of the PhotoSphere process as follows:

1. Basic form and posture that works for me; foot planted on a spot on the ground, phone held in portrait mode (to avoid black holes at top and bottom) at comfortable spot above foot, rotating about spot on ground and minimising spatial movement of the phone’s camera while rotating. 

2. Uploading to +Google Maps via the Gallery App’s Google Maps share option and confirming the desire to publicly publish. 

3. Logging into Google Maps Views to check on the PhotoSphere just published as well as all other PhotoSphere’s that have been captured so far. Using the Google Maps Views edit option to adjust the GPS location of the image to the correct spot. Launching the PhotoSphere into public Google Maps; the image and interface that most people will see.

4. Fixing PhotoSpheres containing stitching errors with a standard graphics editing program in order to perform basic image editing to correct the defective stitching, such as occurs with broken distant horizons. 

5. Uploading the edited PhotoSphere / panorama file to a Web utility provided by Google in order to perform other minor corrections if desired and mainly to add back the metadata that was lost by the graphics editing program - metadata required by PhotoSphere viewers to produce the full 360 panorama effect. Re-uploading and publishing this image once ready. 

6. Brief examples of edited and fixed PhotoSpheres containing varying stitching errors. 

For those who love building their PhotoSphere collections, those only newly discovering the PhotoSphere format, and those yet to give it a try - I hope you found this tutorial useful and helpful. If you have any other questions, comments, or suggestions please let me know.

Disruptive ideas.
I'd say cloud computing is right handy too!
Thanks +Martin Holmes 

Business week asked what’s missing from their list of the 85 most disruptive ideas. I’d say the biggest thing is cloud computing. A core tenet of #HowGoogleWorks is how fundamentally the internet, mobile, and the cloud have changed the business landscape. By making near infinite storage and computing power and sophisticated tools available at a low cost, the cloud has paved the way for innovation like few things previously. 

I bet that when the 90th anniversary issue comes out, cloud computing will feature prominently on the list. What else do you think will be included in five years?

Bionic Vision.
As it says....

"If bionic eyes can see the entire electromagnetic spectrum, that would include infrared vision, heat-sensing capabilities, ability to detect certain gases, and probably even the ability to see right through objects. We could end up with those powers of perception too. We already have devices to measure all these things—the key is shrinking them enough to get them into an implant (or other tethered bodily device) that communicates directly with the brain in a way that renders the input sensible."

How you doing today? 
p.s. and it is just me, or does anyone else wonder how long +David Amerland spends conjuring up the images for these posts? :D

A Helping Hand

For quite a long time in my life I gathered quotes that I painstakingly wrote into a notebook. Some of them I gleaned from books I’d read, others I overheard, or saw somewhere and others still I rewrote from memory never quite knowing who to ascribe them to. That notebook is in a trunk in storage in the UK, along with some of my oldest books, one more ‘victim’ to a lifestyle that turned more and more nomadic as I grew up. 

Each quote I committed to paper was, for me, a little like a cognitive catalyst. It means something personally deeper because its significance resonated. One quote out of what must be hundreds if not thousands has stood out in my mind and I have not yet found its etymology or indeed who first said it (and I read it in a Reader’s Digest “Quotable Quotes” section back in the early 70s). It goes: ”If only all the hands that reach could touch.” 

For me, that, was a defining mental moment. I have remembered the quote (though this is the first time I have ever used it) because it manages to encapsulate in just nine words the sum total of the yearning, hope, suspicion and hopelessness of the human condition. 

We all want to help others (and we feel great while doing it) and that feeling, in itself, soon begins to sow the seeds of doubt in our minds. Do we help others so we can feel great? Does the gratitude expressed or the implied difference in status make us feel good about ourselves? Do we do it so that we can expiate the guilt we feel for who knows what else?

From a Darwinian point of view altruism (and selfless help) are explained through the drive to continue the species (scientifically narrowed down to “kin selection”) – there is an equation that actually describes that: http://goo.gl/Rv3q4o and it apparently drove the person who formulated it to suicide. 

I am a big believer in the perceived symmetry of power (which psychology explains as “reciprocal altruism” - http://goo.gl/TkeK) and (against all rational evidence) a big believer in the intuitive connection of one life force to another (which is why I posted this yesterday: http://goo.gl/NvPORW). Judging by the comments many of you feel the same way though again the scientific evidence we have for that is zero. The online world which allows us to get online from anywhere, in the privacy of our own home and could, potentially, be an even greater isolating and inward gazing experience, has only made more of us want to reach out and help: http://goo.gl/Fh7iZ4. 

Psychologists think that it’s because we’re playing a scenario, or a role, in our heads: http://goo.gl/Ri2J0m. Altruism, depending on your point of view, may be the result of our attempt to live with our ego: http://goo.gl/SJxdhF or simply tied to our identity and our ‘vision’ of the world we want to live in. 

In Confucianism Jen (http://goo.gl/16IeN) is a quality that truly makes us human which one psychologist, at least, has compared it as a willingness to do good: http://goo.gl/3UDfhV. And it is, in a way, a kind of gift that simply keeps on giving: http://goo.gl/E1rXcA. 

Christmas is the time of the year when we usually (and habitually) have to look a little inward, take stock of the year that’s passed, then turn outwards and try and do something nice, give something back. 

This giving back seems to be spreading, happening more and more across the year, as time and opportunity allow, Even Google is in on the act with GoogleServe (http://goo.gl/CPuoO9). While we all want to change the world and we all want it to be a better place that’s something that simply is not written in our job description. 

I am not really sure whose job description it is. Certainly not the politicians who govern us (though I know they are also trying and fighting an imperfect system). The Church (in whatever form you look at it) is not doing that much either. So, it’s down to us again. To achieve a big end by acting in small ways. 

If the task falls on all of us and each of us does something small towards it, that has a way of accumulating into something big as Peter Singer suggests: http://goo.gl/W7i14C.  

It’s that day of the week. I hope you have coffee aplenty at hand accompanied by cookies, donuts, croissants and a little bit of cake. Have an awesome Sunday wherever you are.
