Gideon Rosenblatt23,489Social Media FolksIt's been a long time since I shared a circle, and particularly since I shared this one. I'm just curious to see what happens these days when you share a circle. This one is made up of people involved in social media. Most of the circling I did for this was in the first half of 2012, so it will tend to be people who've been here for a while. 2013-01-30 15:55:0823211421

Gideon Rosenblatt13,064Updated Social Media / Social Networks CircleThis circle is made up of people who spend a significant portion of their week working on social media and social networks - as part of their job - either consulting on it or writing about it. This is an update of a circle I shared in March, adding 30+ people and removing a few. This circle is fairly large, so it's aimed at people who are interested in following social media and are just ramping up here on Google+. Here's what I can tell you about this circle:* It has a bunch of really good people in it; lots of intelligence on the topic of social media. * It's 90% people actually working on social media, but there was a week or two that I temporarily opened it up to also include people who were just interested in social media. I then tightened the criteria back up, but didn't go back and try to pull out those folks who were just interested in it. It's by far the minority of people in this circle though. Most are actually working with social media as part of their job. * Sharing this circle may end up causing me a lot of headaches with some people wondering why they weren't included. Again - the filter here is "people working in social media." So please keep that in mind, and accept my apologies in advance if I neglected to tag you properly for inclusion in this circle. I'll be sharing it again in the future, so feel free to let me know (nicely please). Also, let me know if I'm missing key folks besides yourself. Thank you. OK. That's it. Enjoy this group. I do. #socialmedia #socialnetworks2012-05-17 01:46:21220252233
Alex Diaz (alexdiazeco)2,406I call this one IdeasThat's how interesting these folks are to engage with. As with the green circle I just shared, this one's bigger than 500 so not everyone is here. And just as with the greenies, let us know if you think you should be in it. The common denominator here is interesting content of no particular bent. Just plain fascinating. I can sit and go through this stream all day. Great people one and all.2012-04-07 19:19:005002234

Glenn Wallis714I am delighted and honoured to have been included in this circle from +Gideon Rosenblatt of people on Google+ who have currently under 2000 followers but who "write and share interesting content. Please feel free to share if you think others in your circle would benefit from some of the people in this circle. (I would recommend you add +Gideon Rosenblatt too !!)2012-03-12 21:15:05113313
Gideon Rosenblatt7,757Under 2K, Interesting, Original People CircleLooking for some new voices? People who share good content, but who don't have huge circles of people already following them? People in this circle:* have less than 2,000 people circling them* have interesting and original insights and content they share publicly* engage others in civil, respectful ways that build communityI spent a bunch of time curating this circle to try to make sure the people in it meet the above criteria. This is a good group of folks. My goal in sharing this circle is to help give some interesting people a bit more visibility here on Google+. I think it's important that we bake that kind of opportunity into the culture of this network. If people work hard to share good content and engage well with others, they deserve a chance to get recognized. +Liz ℚuilty did something like this for me when I was just getting started, and this is my way of passing the torch. I want to note that I failed in one of my original goals for this circle, which was to build a diverse group of people. My existing network here on G+ just couldn't get me there for this circle share, so that's something I will be working on addressing for future circles. In the mean time, since I'm not including myself in this circle (because I fail the first criterion), I'm going to be a bit more direct in my call to action. If you like the criteria for this circle and you agree with its goals, then please, add this circle and re-share it publicly. Thank you in advance for your help.2012-03-12 13:57:13114928869

G+B2B: your recommendations please
I want a condensed guide making the case for using G+ for Business to Business, both generally, and how it wins over Facebook specifically.

I'm more interested in posts by G+ users that pull together and link to evidence or more detail than I am in Google's own marketing pieces (I know where those are).

What can you recommend as the best posts?

Jumping through hoops
In Olympic year, a new event from Microsoft

In which I…
Go to brush up on Outlook email templating (haven't done it for a while).
Find useful looking demo on microsoft.com.
Realise demo requires Windows MediaPlayer.
Update Flip4Mac and Silverlight for the first time in ages.
Find it makes no difference.
Go and find a Windows machine or boot up Virtual Machine.
Sigh /

Srsly, Microsoft, do you really suppose that all designers work on Windows?
And do you really think MediaPlayer is the friendliest way to deliver video in 2012?
Yes I know I'll need to test the solution on Windows eventually but I just wanted to learn :(

Why Google+ is Kicking Facebook’s Ass

by +Sharon Hurley Hall

Facebook, Shmacebook! If you’re still on the fence about Google+, it’s time to get off and get your account. Google+ users have known for months that this was a better social network for businesses than Facebook, but if you need convincing here’s why Google+ rules and why you need to get a Google+ profile fast.

Are G+ID based searches too flaky to rely on any more?
I don't normally reshare my own stuff -- dodgy! -- but bear with me in this case.

A few days ago I posted my discovery below but, as of this morning, it seems to be highly erratic. It works superbly sometimes and then not at all at others. (It wasn't flawless but more reliable before.)

-- Does it work for you?
-- Has Google changed something?
-- What factors dictate when it will and won't work?

I'd like answers because this search technique is a really useful function. It would be great if someone from Google could comment. If any of you reading this have the ear of someone at Google perhaps you can help bring it to their attention. Thanks.

Disestablish bigotry
+Ben Goldacre summed up my thinking on this debacle with his tweet…
"Srsly tho, why is being homophobic so important to Christians and the politicians who support them?" twitter.com/bengoldacre/status/170982311066746880

Issues like this are why there shouldn't be any faith schools in the state system. When it comes to prejudice promoted by a creed, people are going to believe what they believe. But you can't have the state sponsor such teaching.

If it's not already clear what I think about homophobia, you can follow my train of thinking here: plus.google.com/103363186582409589918/posts/89L8got4f9m.

iPads are helping Apple in the enterprise market
The pros and cons as seen by an IT manager on page 2 of this article are interesting…

"In general I find iOS devices very easy to support. They rarely break down and when they do they can fairly easily be reset or reconfigured with a few instructions over the telephone. In more serious cases I have sometimes had to direct the user to a local Apple store where they go to the Genius Bar just like any other user. But in three years of using iPhones this has only happened twice and geographically this was the best decision (one in Northern Ireland and one in Fyfe).

"The lack of remote support tools such as WebEx, Team Viewer or Logmein is disappointing. I can manage setup and roll out profiles but can’t see what is happening as I can with Windows Mobile and Android devices. Given the low failure rate this hasn’t yet become a problem.

"My biggest concern is over security. Everything done on the iPad has to be approved by the user, so if he/she decides they don’t want me to remove the YouTube app, or enforce a security code, then they can refuse to install the profile. Similarly if I roll out a security profile to the device and they decide they don’t like it they can easily delete it. Apple insists that the user (consumer) is the administrator of their device – in an enterprise this isn’t really the case. They are our assets and we should be able to restrict their use to business applications only."

Speaking as someone who is not blessed with the strongest jawline… gold dust!

Fifteen minutes to improve your head shot photo: Jaws revisited!
I rarely watch instructional videos as they are time consuming, but Peter Hurley here does a great job. If you´re impatient go the 9th minute to see the results

Such a simple trick and such a huge improvement! No expensive equipment or post-processing needed to enormously improve your head shot. Next time you need one for your CV have your photographer watch this first!
Like Peter says ´it may feel weird, but if it looks great who cares´

I have changed my profile photo for today to my formal one to show some difference

check out this photo by +francisco tejon https://plus.google.com/u/0/109753187393405195231/posts/36fkmCCZCuN to see a shot where the technique almost certainly has been applied.

G+B2B: your recommendations please
I want a condensed guide making the case for using G+ for Business to Business, both generally, and how it wins over Facebook specifically.

I'm more interested in posts by G+ users that pull together and link to evidence or more detail than I am in Google's own marketing pieces (I know where those are).

What can you recommend as the best posts?

In support of the G+ hashtag for topic discovery
I'm trying to form a new habit of consistent use of #hashtags . Here's why…

In terms of increasing one's discoverability by others, I reckon Google+ search works well enough the vast majority of the time without resorting to hashtags, if one just has the right text content in the post to start with.

But where they really add juice is in providing a kind of 'browse' route for easy discovery of your own posts around particular topics. And that can then help people understand what makes you tick by pointing them at G+ID + topic search streams. Here's an example:

plus.google.com/s/103363186582409589918%20%23hashtags
That collection of hashtag related posts includes my own and also ones by others that I've commented on.

Lessons in corporate morality -- or the lack of it
By chance I caught this amazing programme last night. It was the last of 4 (I think) and I now want to seek out the previous 3. If you can view BBC iPlayer, I recommend you watch it.

This episode focused on using consumer clout to put pressure on and to boycott big brands who were heavily invested in the South African apartheid regime. It was a process of around 2 painful decades to try and get big corporates (and their political lackeys) to wake up to their moral accountability.

The programme is skilfully edited to let the story speak for itself. It's not hard to see where the moral high ground lies when rich, white businessmen from around the world -- some smirking, others still bristling with indignation at having their business disrupted -- are intercut with people dropping like hunted prey at the wrong end of a... more »

It's not hard to see where the moral high ground lies when rich, white businessmen from around the world -- some smirking, others still bristling with indignation at having their business disrupted -- are intercut with people dropping like hunted prey at the wrong end of a pump action shotgun.

It was striking to see how quickly the regime collapsed once the commercial world finally got off its corpulent arse and 'did the right thing'. Over 300 sizeable corporations pulled out in the closing years leaving South Africa on the verge of bankruptcy and forcing those in power to confront some uncomfortable truths.

One presumes that things would change much quicker nowadays with the internet and social media oiling the wheels of protest, but big business is still mostly amoral at best. It's about time we reengineered capitalism to have people's wellbeing at the centre of its incentive system.

Unsurprisingly, South Africa still has many challenges ahead: guardian.co.uk/world/2012/feb/10/julius-malema-south-africa-anc.

The future is clearly gesture
"Clear may not be the right todo list app for you, but it is definitely blazing the trail for a new class of apps that will be completely based on gestures. This would have been completely impossible just a few years ago, as none of us were familiar with pinch-and-zoom gestures yet. But as Tim Cook pointed out earlier today, all of this has now become completely intuitive and the next logical step now is to just do away with more and more of what is still left of the desktop metaphors on our mobile devices."

One of my alter egos wrote this…

Running a Google+ Page campaign:
Taking stock after 1 month in the saddle
Warning: this post may contain name dropping

Just over a month ago +Julian Bond posted one of his occasional grumbles about Google+ not having RSS feeds for our accounts 'baked in'. And we agree with him.

So +Jonathan Schofield created our Page as an experiment in using Google+ as a campaigning tool to reach out to Google.

Thank you to all 70 who have since reshared our proposition (goo.gl/NbCd1) and all 300 or so who have +1'ed us or added us to their circles. But collectively that puts us at only ~0.000003% of the gplus population.

That's not enough to get our message addressed by Google, people! If we really want RSS to be an integral part of G+, a lot more people are going to have to join us and we're going to have to be more vocal about it.

------- + + + -------

6 things we've learned while running this campaign page in our spare time over the past month or so…

1. Get the name right from the start
We didn't have 'RSS' in our name initially, and then when we realised we should incorporate it to help get picked up in search, we found we had to wait 30 days before we could change it!

2. Pages have major constraints on their strap line
The hovercard for a Page only shows 1 line of text that's usually less than 30 characters. That gives you a very small window to encapsulate what your Page is about (goo.gl/7BPCl). We've tweaked and tweaked ours and now feel we have an optimal piece of #microcopy .

3. +Robert Scoble commented on RSS and the need to be heard in his impassioned piece on the common web…
"It’s too late to save the common web. It’s why, for the past year, I’ve given up and have put most of my blogging into Google+. I should have been spending that effort on the web commons and on RSS but it’s too late." (goo.gl/FS5Yb)

We're more optimistic about open standards like RSS over the long term (goo.gl/A3BqE) -- as are others like +Jeff Sayre and +Kingsley Idehen -- but you have to admit Robert has a point for the foreseeable future.

4. We don't have enough clout (or Klout)
If you want your message to have impact you either have to have influence already or get picked up by a few people with a big following who will do your shouting for you. We've been restrained about name dropping such people in our posts so far because doing so feels uncool. But let's throw caution to the wind just this one time to see if some other relevant folks with bigger followings than us would like to pitch in:

+Felicia Day has advocated RSS here on G+:
Check out the 3rd comment from +Louis Gray on her 26 October post in which he said, "…glad to have your support for RSS. At Google, we're huge fans of making information discoverable, sharable and useful." (goo.gl/RKtes) Hmm.

+Dave Winer: the godfather of RSS writes often at scripting.com
(and not at all here, it would seem).

+John Battelle: writes great tech commentary over at battellemedia.com and in part inspired (goo.gl/y9nb6) Robert Scoble to rant on the demise of the common web.

+Alan Green is a Google Engineer working on Google Reader.

5. There are lots of good folks plugging holes in the G+ ecosystem
Have a trawl through our 17 previous posts and you'll find a few of them.

6. For all we know Google are listening
And working on native G+RSS. If they are, they're just not telling us! As +Mary Sullivan Frasier commented recently…

"The more deeply entrenched I become in the relationship I seem to be having with Google, the more aware I am of how skilled they are in the art of one sided conversation." (goo.gl/s9Fpv)

------- + + + -------

In closing, if you have clout, or influence on someone who does, saddle up and let's go tilting at a few windmills.

Notifications for resharing a reshare
Last week I posted about how I wish Google would let us reshare a commentary on a reshare (as opposed to just resharing the original reshare) [1].

I haven't seen any movement on that but I have just noticed that we now at least get a notification if someone reshares a post from our reshare. See the screenshot below.

Is this new? Or has it always been there and I just need to be more observant?
