Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/2)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca  #sharedcircles #circles #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:30:374321214592CC G+

Ralf Skirr14,917The How To Get Started With Shared Circles V2 Circle! Lots of people re-share other people’s shared circle by simply clicking the share button on the circle post.

From G+ gurus as well as from people with only a few dozen followers but amazing profiles.Back to How-to-get-started...Of course, if you don't feel like creating your own circle, you can simply share the traditional way: 1. Click the share button below and share. 2. Plus one this post. 3. Comment on this post. [Will add you to my upcoming engagers circle.]Quick start steps for creating your own shared circle:Create the new circle1. In the circle below click ‘Add people.’ A popup will open where you can create a new circle.2. Type a new name for your new circle, and click the button ‘Create [name of your circle] circle.’ You will now have a new circle with the 450 people from the circle I created. Google sends you to the circle page in your browser. From there you can share right away:How to share your new circleIf you want to share the 450 people circle without adding more people:1. From the circle page, click the ‘Share circle’ arrow in the round circle icon. A popup opens where you can share.2. Check ‘Include yourself in shared circle.’3. Add a comment.4.

No inactive people.Who I've added:- I've put a lot of time into finding interesting people. Not all 450, but lots of people who are active posters, posting a variety of topics on g+. - An even smaller [than last time] pinch of 'the usual suspects,' i.e. people active in circle sharing.- A few people who have helped me to grow my following, i.e. who have RECENTLY included me in their shared circles. Including them here is a THANK YOU for their support!AND A SPECIAL SHOUTOUT for the amazing admins of our community BLOGGERS OF GOOGLE PLUS+Julie DeNeen +elizabeth obih-frank 2014-03-04 16:51:4545012590129CC G+
Bernard Piette11,208Hi Everyone and Happy Saturday. I'm excited to share #MoversandShakers v 3.0. I hope you all enjoy the posts this ladies and gents put together on a daily basis. Please feel free to like share and comment on the great posts our fellow Googlers put together for all of us to enjoy. My experience on Google+  has been nothing short of exrtraordinary and I hope you all enjoy the same positive experiences. One thing I know is that if you do not put yourself out there and engage with people, well chances are you wont get the most out of your experience on Google+. My simple free advice is simply to get out there and engage on content that interests you. Plain and simple. ENGAGE :-) Some of my favorite posts from the last month are below, enjoy! *****************************************************1.

Jeffrey Lapin13,414*Rabbit Circle 2.0”If you are receiving this you have been included in my second Rabbit Circle.Why "Rabbit Circle"? My last name, "Lapin" means "rabbit" in French. Hence, Rabbit Circle. Before anyone asks, I do not have French ancestry. I started my Rabbit Circle to share active engagers, influencers and others I have learned from and interacted with here on G+. This is a Circle I check at least daily if not more often.The first Rabbit Circle contained almost all lawyers/ law firms and marketers (SEO, social media, web design, etc.). These are the people that I tend to interact with the most. However, I have started to expanded the Circle to other areas as well.This is not a Circle Share in which you are required to do anything. If you want to comment, plus or share, that is up to you. If we regularly interact and I left you off please do not take it personally as it was probably just an oversight. I have not used any tools to determine interaction or engagement. Just memory. If you would like to be removed from the Rabbit Circle please send me a private message and I will not share your profile in the future. #rabbitcircle #rabbitcircle22014-02-05 02:35:54318201414CC G+

Besides being a shared Circle this is also a Circle of thanks to everyone in this Circle.This first Rabbit Circle contains a lot of lawyers/ law firms and marketers (SEO, social media, web design, etc.). These are the people that I interact with the most.Until this Circle gets full you will remain in unless you want out (see below). If it gets to 500, to remain in you need to follow these rules, which would be nice for you to do anyway but are not required:1) Add me to your circles.2) +1 this post.3) Share this post.4) Leave me a comment on this post.If we regularly interact and I left you off please do not take it personally as it was just an oversight.

Should we care less about the technology and more about what it can do for you.

Speaking to many consultants who have been on the social media beat for awhile, I can sense their fatigue.
They're  running on a hamster wheel keeping up with new platforms, new apps, new tools and at the same time struggling to convince their clients why they should care.

Is it time to accept that people aren't interested in how the message is communicated as much as they are on what the message is.

The #GPLusLunchBunch  tackles the question, "Are we ready for a post social media world?"

This may seem weird since it seems obvious so many just don't "get it". But will they ever?

Seventy percent of workers are not engaged in their work

Yikes. I've seen these number before, but every time I see them, I am astounded.  Gallup breaks the numbers out as follows: 


Engaged (30% of the U.S. population): Deeply committed to the success of their organization and emotionally connected to its mission and goals. Routinely willing to put forth discretionary effort.

Disengaged (52% of the U.S. population): Less emotionally connected to their work and less compelled to put forth extra effort. They show up for work but generally do only the minimum required.

Actively Disengaged (18% of the U.S. population): Actively against what the organization, and their boss, is trying to get done.

+Upworthy changes their primary metric to Attention Minutes
There'll do this in two forms:
_Total Attention on Site (per hour, day, week, month, whatever) — that tells us (like total uniques or total pageviews) how good of a job Upworthy is doing overall at drawing attention to important topics.

Total Attention per Piece, which is a combination of how many people watch something on Upworthy and how much of it they actually watch. Pieces with higher Total Attention should be promoted more.

What happens when your company stages a coup and declares itself a Holacracy?

Chaos or egalitarian paradise?
Neither, according to +Brendan Tully Walsh  my guest this week on the GPlusLunchBunch show. http://goo.gl/GHei9i

I asked Brendan to join us around the Hangout On Air lunch table to talk about his experience introducing Holacracy into his Montreal marketing agency, +Brendan & Brendan.

We covered a lot in just over 34 minutes:
What is Holacracy?

   - A system based on distributed authority with emphasis on personal empowerment and company wide agility.

“The idea is to structure the company around the work that needs to be done rather than the people who do it. - Tony Hsieh, Zappos."

Interesting correlation between the diminishing reach on Facebook and the increasing stock price.
+Jay Baer demonstrates (literally) that Facebook, like all companies, cares more about their business than yours.

"Facebook's declining organic reach for businesses corresponds precisely with its increase in stock price. No surprise! Here's 4 ways to combat declining Facebook effectiveness."

Facebook was created as a social platform. Brands insist on making it a marketing platform.  So Facebook is telling it's business clientele, if you want to play, you got to pay.

4 Things You Can Do About Your Facebook Problem
1. Stop using Facebook as your key social media hub.

How to Create a Schedule Hangout On Air Event (SHOAE)
My +SteamFeed article is hot off the press! Read it and view screen shots here: http://goo.gl/yJpPzC

For those that have done HOA’S for awhile, you’re familiar with the MacGyver magic we had to pull to get HOA's to work with Events.HOA Events.

Google took pity and merged these two different platforms and gave us the (SHOAE) Scheduled Hangout On AIr Event. (pronounced “shoe”, the “A” is silent according to +Michael Daniels )

Both methods are available to us, each with their own pros and cons.
Advantages: Scheduled Hangouts On Air Event (SHOAE)

And it went wherever I did go. 
Is it in the cupboard? Wouldn't you like to know? It was a lovely little fish._
And it went wherever I did go. 
Where can that fish be? It is a most elusive fish! 
And it went wherever I did go.

Are you seeing fewer comments left on your blog or social media posts?
Are you leaving as many as you used to?

With the hoopla over CopyBlogger removing comments from their site, “comments” was the subject of many posts and comments this week.

On today’s show, our esteemed #GPlusLunchBunch panel will be
sharing their opinions on “commenting”.

Is it an important part of being social?
Or are we living a "post social" era where leaving comments are as old school as writing "letters to the editor"?.

Let me make one thing perfectly clear and in  black and white,  we welcome and encourage comments, here.
So should you feel the urge to express your opinions on this topic or just to say “hi”, please do so.

Social, whose business is it, anyway?
We’ve had a lot of talk lately on the LunchBunch show about social media marketing.
Last week, we spoke with Mark Schaefer about why we were failing social. 
So what is it about this word that confuses us so much.
Is mixing social with business, mixing oil and water?

You can call me a “cock-eyed optimist” but I became a social strategist believing social media would bring about a change in business culture.

I follow social business thought leaders, +Amber Naslund  and +Matt Ridings  of +SideraWorks  as well as +Michael Brito  of +Edelman and others who share “awesome” content and do amazing work guiding large companies along their social conversion.

But down here in the trenches with the foot soldiers,  I’m sensing a retreat as they move to more familiar “marketing” ground.

I like to check old blog posts occasionally on my site: www.newraycom.com to see if if I've changed my opinions over the past year or two.

I'm pretty consistent.  Other than software and platform updates, I'm singing pretty much the same tune.

In preparation for our #GPLusLunchBunh  show: Social, whose business is it, anyway? ( http://goo.gl/glAvoG  ),  I did a search for "social Business" and came across a post: Social Business: Hit or Myth? where I imagined what I would do had Google Plus existed when I ran theatres and restaurants. 

How I’d transform my restaurant into a social business with Google Plus

Are You A Google Plusser Or A Google Poser?

When I first came over to Google +, I was told to begin by finding and following the influencers in my niche.   I started with some of the real big names like +Deepak Chopra  and +Tony Robbins  -- two people who have, in my mind built a massive following in the realm of human potential.  I also looked for some of the coaching experts in my niche the ones who make millions of dollars teaching their signature coaching systems.

To my dismay, the people I regarded as influencers in my niche were (and still are) nowhere to be found.  Yes, they have a #googleplus   profile, but their activity in Google + is often just a bunch of links to a squeeze page for their latest launch.  And although their posts will get +1’s, it’s rare to see comments or reshares.  

In those first weeks of using google +, I kept having thethought “No... more »

Social, whose business is it, anyway?
We’ve had a lot of talk lately on the LunchBunch show about social media marketing.
Last week, we spoke with Mark Schaefer about why we were failing social. 
So what is it about this word that confuses us so much.
Is mixing social with business, mixing oil and water?

You can call me a “cock-eyed optimist” but I became a social strategist believing social media would bring about a change in business culture.

I follow social business thought leaders, +Amber Naslund  and +Matt Ridings  of +SideraWorks  as well as +Michael Brito  of +Edelman and others who share “awesome” content and do amazing work guiding large companies along their social conversion.

But down here in the trenches with the foot soldiers,  I’m sensing a retreat as they move to more familiar “marketing” ground.

Hasthe word “social” morp... more »

Happy SUNday!
After the walk through the snow yesterday http://goo.gl/i2kObY we arrived at the museum to be greeted by the"sun", Chihuly's sun to be exact.
It's a holdover from the immensely popular Chihuly exhibit last year. Montrealer's loved it so much there's a fundraising drive to keep it in here. Hope they succeed.

Google Glass in Medical Research and Practice
Montreal General Hospital's Dr. Hans Van Lancker got hold of his Google Glass as part of research to figure out possible applications in the operating room and "mobile medicine".

“Imagine if you have a technology that disappears like a sensor or a pair of glasses, that’s when technology starts to disappear, that’s when it becomes really exciting because most technology is obtrusive,” -  Dr. Edward Harvey, chief of orthopedic trauma at the McGill University Health Centre.

Took this photo at 12:57pm EST. in Old Montreal.
This was the exact time that Spring officially arrived.
Didn't want Spring to think she wasn't welcome.
Hope she brought flowers..

*+Mark Schaefer tells us what we could be doing wrong with "Social".
Had the great pleasure of welcoming Mark to our #gpluslunchbunch   table on Tuesday.

We had an informative (and fun) half hour filled with tons of take-aways for how we can improve our social strategy and get our content noticed.

Includes video of the show.

Thanks to fellow panelists for their contribution to making this show "epic".
