He lives in Durham NC, which he regards as Portland OR without a web parody (yet).Mark has been active on Google+ since its third day and has developed a reputation as an expert on using Google+ for business and personal branding, as well as on Google Authorship.When he's not singlehandedly trying to eliminate Google+'s "ghost town" image by posting there at least once every 10 minutes, you'll find Mark playing mandolin in a New Orleans-style second line band called The Bulltowns Strutters, and competing in storyslam events.This week's show is sponsored by:+CT Social  is an interactive digital agency based in Central Florida.

Traditionally depicted as being dressed in Lincoln green,[1] he is often portrayed as "robbing from the rich and giving to the poor" alongside his band of "Merry Men". Robin Hood became a popular folk figure in the medieval period, and continues to be widely represented in modern literature, films and televisionThe historicity of Robin Hood has been debated for centuries. Modern academic opinion maintains that the legend is based in part on a historical person, although there is considerable scholarly debate as to his actual identity. A difficulty with any such historical research is that "Robert" wasin medieval England a very common given name, and "Robin" (or Robyn), was its very common diminutive, especially in the 13th century.[5] The surname "Hood" (or Hude or Hode etc.) was fairly common because it referred either to a Hooder, who was a maker of hoods; or alternatively to somebody who wore a hood as a head-covering. Unsurprisingly, therefore, reference is made to a number of people called "Robert Hood" or "Robin Hood" in medieval records. Some of these individuals are even known to have fallen afoul of the law. The idea of Robin Hood as an Anglo-Saxon freedom fighter opposing oppressive Norman lords found popular appeal in the nineteenth century. The most notable contributions to the idea are Sir Walter Scott's Ivanhoe (1819) and Augustin Thierry's Histoire de laConquête de l'Angleterre par les Normands, A History of the Conquest of England by the Normans (1825). Robin Hood appears as a character along with his "merry men" in Ivanhoe, a historical novel by Sir Walter Scott published in 1820, and set in 12th-century England. The character that Scott gave to Robin Hood in Ivanhoe helped shape the modern notion of this figure as a cheery noble outlaw. In the novel Robin is depicted as a follower of King Richard the Lionheart and helps him and Wilfred Ivanhoe to fight against the Knights Templar. It is in this work that the modern Robin Hood – "King of Outlaws and prince of good fellows!" – as Richard the Lionheart calls him – makes his debut![15]Academics indicate that there are a number of verifiable historical clues that allude to the legend's Anglo-Saxon origins. In particular, The Coucher Book of Selby Abbey, a manuscript dating from the eleventh century, records2014-10-29 17:42:12500312128

Lincoln led the United States through its Civil War—its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional and political crisis.[1][2] In doing so, he preserved the Union, abolished slavery, strengthened the federal government, and modernized the economy.Reared in a poor family on the western frontier, Lincoln was a self-educated lawyer in Illinois, a Whig Party leader, state legislator during the 1830s, and a one-term member of the Congress during the 1840s. He promoted rapid modernization of the economy through banks, canals, railroads and tariffs to encourage the building of factories; he opposed the war with Mexico in 1846. After a series of highly publicized debates in 1858, during which Lincoln spoke out against the expansion of slavery, he lost the U.S. Senate race to his archrival, Democrat Stephen A. Douglas.Lincoln, a moderate from a swing state, secured the Republican Party presidential nomination in 1860. With very little support in the slave states, Lincoln swept the North and was elected president in 1860. His election prompted seven southern slave states to form the Confederacy before he took the office. No compromise or reconciliation was found regarding slavery.When the North enthusiastically rallied behind the Union after the Confederate attack on Fort Sumter on April 12, 1861, Lincoln concentrated on the military and political dimensions of the war effort. His primary goal was to reunite the nation. He unilaterally suspended habeas corpus, arresting and temporarily detaining thousands holding secessionist or anti-war views in the border states without trial, ignoring the ruling by U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice that such suspension was unconstitutional (unless done by Congress). Lincoln averted potential British intervention by defusing the Trent Affair in late 1861. His complex moves toward ending slavery centered on the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, using the Army to protect escaped slaves, encouraging the border states to outlaw slavery, and helping push through Congress the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which permanently outlawed slavery. Lincoln closely supervised the war effort, especially the selection of top generals, including his most successful general Ulysses S. Grant. He made the major decisions on Union war strategy. Lincoln's Navy set up a naval blockade that shut down the South's normal trade, he2014-10-22 16:34:39500247253277

After founding the Mongol Empire and being proclaimed "Genghis Khan," he started the Mongol invasions that resulted in the conquest of most of Eurasia. These included raids or invasions of the Kara-Khitan Khanate, Caucasus, Khwarezmid Empire, Western Xia and Jin dynasties. These campaigns were often accompanied by wholesale massacres of the civilian populations – especially in the Khwarezmian and Xia controlled lands. By the end of his life, the Mongol Empire occupied a substantial portion of Central Asia and China.Before Genghis Khan died, he assigned Ögedei Khan as his successor and split his empire into khanates among his sons and grandsons.[7] He died in 1227 after defeating the Western Xia. He was buried in an unmarked grave somewhere in Mongolia at an unknown location.[8] His descendants extended the Mongol Empire across most of Eurasia by conquering or creating vassal states out of all of modern-day China, Korea, the Caucasus, Central Asia, and substantial portions of modern Eastern Europe, Russia, and the Middle East. Many of these invasions repeated the earlier large-scale slaughters of local populations. As a result Genghis Khan and his empire have a fearsome reputation in local histories.[9]Beyond his military accomplishments, Genghis Khan also advanced the Mongol Empire in other ways. He decreed the adoption of the Uyghur script as the Mongol Empire's writing system. He also practiced meritocracy and encouraged religious tolerance in the Mongol Empire while unifying the nomadic tribes of northeast Asia. Present-day Mongolians regard him as the founding father of Mongolia.[10]Vilified throughout most of history for the brutality of his campaigns, Genghis Khan is also credited with bringing the Silk Road under one cohesive political environment. This increased communication and trade from Northeast Asia to Muslim Southwest Asia and Christian Europe, thus expanding the horizons of all three cultural areas.From Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaI apologize if I made any mistake!Best wishes+Bernd Hau #circle 2014-10-15 16:20:36498261266298

Next destination: Google(+)

+Brian Jensen is describing his guest post on +Plus Your Business! the integrations of Google+ with the different other Google services.

Google+ is more than a social identity, it’s a social layer.  Since the birth of Google+ in 2011, Google has slowly and consistently integrated the social network with its other products and services including Google Maps, Gmail, Google Play, YouTube, Google Search, Google Calendar, and more. With these integrations comes not only the chance to increase awareness for your brand across multiple Google services, but also an opportunity to build community utilizing Google’s social network.

A lot of information here. Thanks Brian!

A refreshing, cool and detailed look at this whole area...

Thanks +Brian Jensen for an AWESOME guest post for PYB.

#googleplustips   #googleplusforbusiness  ___Next destination: Google(+)

+Brian Jensen is describing his guest post on +Plus Your Business! the integrations of Google+ with the different other Google services.

Google+ is more than a social identity, it’s a social layer.  Since the birth of Google+ in 2011, Google has slowly and consistently integrated the social network with its other products and services including Google Maps, Gmail, Google Play, YouTube, Google Search, Google Calendar, and more. With these integrations comes not only the chance to increase awareness for your brand across multiple Google services, but also an opportunity to build community utilizing Google’s social network.

A lot of information here. Thanks Brian!

What Does Google+ Mean To You?

For me (as a page and a service) the question is pretty easy to answer:
Almost Everything 
Without Google+ CircleCount wouldn't have been born. 
But the most important on Google+ is the community, is you! Google+ gave us the chance to learn so many new people all over the world. That's a huge Plus!

A great collection of stories and a great Sunday read here by +Sean Cowen!
Thank you Sean for putting this together!

And now tell us your story! :)

What Does Google+ Mean To You?

This is one of my famous "very long reads" so take your time with it and pace yourself!

A few years back, I had a lofty goal in mind to write a book about mastering Google+ and providing insights into how I was able to navigate the waters of this UI. I live on a rural farm in NW Ohio and somehow I've gathered 55,000 followers and 32 million views of my posts, so it feels like I'm doing a few things right. I had about 45 pages written, but life, being unemployed for a lengthy time, then finally finding great new work intervened and this book is now collecting dust in Drive.

But I did reach out to many incredible people on G+ and I asked them one simple question: What does Google+ mean to you?

I hope they won't mind if I share their stories here. I don't want their words to disappear to time, and until I finish this book (and I will!) I thought my circles might enjoy seeing their thoughts. I'd love to hear from them all now and see if anything's changed or gotten better. This is a great journey we're all on...

If you'd like to add your own extended words on this topic, comment here of PM me and I'll be sure you're added. Also, if any of these authors no longer would like to have their words publicly posted in the stream, I'll respect your wishes and remove your words. But each response was lovely and I hope my readers enjoy seeing where all of our collective heads were when I asked the question...

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Paul Roustan - Providence, Rhode Island, USA +Paul Roustan 

Google+ has been, by far, the best means for me to showcase my work. More importantly, it is a platform allowing me to develop relationships with people of all sorts, be it friendships, colleagues, and/or valuable connections for my artwork. I don't think there is any better method to connect to an important person, the right person, bypassing their agency/secretary/bodyguard or whoever would normally deny contact. This is a TREMENDOUS benefit to artists/musicians/directors/etc. Google+ cuts out the middle man, allowing many people to exist that may never have been found.

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Stephanie Van Pelt - Florida, USA +Stephanie Van Pelt 

Sometimes technology has a way of touching us in the most unexpected ways.

I joined Google Plus during its infancy, within the first month during the throttled-invite-only phase. I must confess, I was courted more by the exclusivity of it all than because I was so very anxious to join another social network. All I knew was that you had to be invited and that it was only 1 week old.

It took me only a week or so to drum up the courage to join a Hangout, a feature that allows you to video chat with up to 9 other people from pretty much anywhere. It was scary, my palms were sweaty and they were complete strangers. In fact, everyone I interacted with on Google Plus was a stranger. And yet, there we were, saying hello, responding to posts and exchanging ideas down threads of conversation.

I really had no idea what was in store for me. None. If you told me then where I’d be now, I would have said you’re insane.

Once I recovered from the initial nervousness I realized everyone else was in the same predicament. Some hid it better than others, or were just inherently more comfortable with the medium; however Google Plus was too new for anyone to be established at Hangouts. As the comfort level grew, so did my enjoyment and love of Hangouts.

As a single mom, I don’t get out much these days. The boys are in bed early but I am up for hours still, a night owl and social by my very nature. Hangouts give me the opportunity to connect with people from all over the world, to sit up late at night and converse, argue, debate, listen to music, explore the internet and ultimately forge some incredible new connections and relationships.

Over the past 6 months I’ve been able to broaden my horizons in fantastic ways. I was introduced to dubstep (yes, I know!) through a music Hangout. I’ve gotten to know more about the remarkable differences and intriguing traditions of other cultures through direct chat with strangers I may never see or meet. I’ve randomly helped a few strangers through small donations. I’ve seen exotic locations through mobile Hangouts and had discussions on everything from food to health care to love won (and lost) .

There have been some incredible, personal stories shared with me. Some publicly in comments on threads and some far more privately. I’m always touched when virtual strangers open up and tell me more about what makes them, them.

After posing a question, what book really seized your imagination and got you to start reading I was astounded at some of the deep answers shared with me. Behind the curtain of a monitor people shared parts of themselves few people share face to face. I read about one person using books to fulfill the role models they never received from their own parents; another shared his personal work experience with one of my favorite authors.

Similar stories, moving and emotional came after a post about dating single parents. I cherish each time people shared themselves with me. Everything from a mother’s death, to the loss of a twin, to surviving childhood cancer, to orphaned adults alone for the holidays…job loss, promotions!, gift exchanges, sharing of that one little link you know will matter to someone, exposure to new music – so much to explore, but all of it in a very personal matter.

What this has really boiled down to, for me, is that all those random, strange “internet people” have become so much more. Connecting through common interests rather than common locations, I feel like I’ve had this amazing opportunity to explore the people that make up the internet.

So what happened to me? I wound  up on a cruise with some of those “internet people” and had the absolute time of my life. I challenge you , who’s out there waiting for you to get to know them? Who haven’t you met yet? What haven’t you learned about yet?

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Liz Quilty - Cambridge, New Zealand +Liz Quilty 

Google+ has meant a lot to me, it’s enabled me to connect to like minded people who are not always the majority. Being a female in technology means i work and live in a very male orientated world, though i don’t think that this is necessarily a bad thing. 

However, i would have liked to meet more females in the industry and be able to help us promote each other, to get more voice and encourage other females who are looking to get into things. Being able to interact with those people, and helping organize things like +STEM Women on G+ has been amazingly awesome.

Google is actively helping us with our task, and this in itself is what is setting it apart from other social media platforms. Google have done this with several other groups and people, and especially minority groups with a good cause have found a voice. 

For this reason, Google+ has changed my life, and the life of a lot of others in a similar way :) For me, Google+ is support, supporting those who want to help themselves go places, and do things :) Its also friendship, and great conversation, i have got a LOT from a lot of great people!

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Michael Vaughan - Mackay, Queensland, Australia +Michael Vaughan 

My first motivation for using Google+ was that it was not Facebook.  At the time Google+ was announced, I was still futilely trying to convince people to use Orkut. Google+, for me, hasn't become the Facebook-killer I'd hoped, because so few people I know in meatspace use it, however I've met so many cool people here.  I think this must be what it felt like for those first internet users, with their wholly new online communities, BBSs and such.

Possibly the thing I like most about Google+, though, aside from the features, is just how accessible the semi-famous can be.  Bloggers, artists, authors, actors; at some point, I've actually exchanged words with people I've looked up to for so long, and that is what keeps me using it.

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Daf Griffiths - Ponciau, Wales, United Kingdom +Daf Griffiths 

G+ has been a big boost for me, if you met me face to face you would instantly turn to one of my friends and say the same thing everybody else does: "this guy is hard work to talk to"!

I used to be the type of person who lived for the attention on stage. I always took great pleasure from compliments about my performance in musicals as it meant I'd done my work right, and by doing it right I mean I wasn't me for 3 hours. My greatest pleasure in life was rehearsing for 4 months of the year to not be me for 3 hours a night over the space of a week and that week was the highlight of my year,

NOW, every day is a highlight as G+ has allowed me to be myself without having to come face to face with people in difficult environments and it's incredibly liberating! I aim to join in with hangouts soon and that will be a major turning point for me, but with the friends that I've made on here I'm not worried about the outcome as I already trust those people implicitly.

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of jay dawge - Maine, USA +jay dawge 

OK here goes, Google plus came along at a time when things were quite mixed up. I was having a really hard time finding work, so I sold my home and moved south for a job offer that paid better. The move brought me closer to my daughters home +kool cat so the move was a no brainer. I did not know anybody down here and I met my roommate the same day I moved down. I worked a lot and had no friends here, so google plus was a good escape. I have met so many cool people doing so many cool things in so many cool places, that I don't know how I would get by w/o them. G+ also gives me a way to share cool music, pictures, stories and art with my daughter "and many others around the world for that matter". 

Thank you to all that I have met, for the laughter, joy and sorrow you have shared. For those that are home sick for Maine +Sean Cowen  and a few others I have met I think about you when I snap and post photos, trying to capture subjects that are typical of Maine life. I could ramble on for hours but I will spare you the irony LOL, good luck w/ your book I know it will be good w/ your talent and G+ users for the subject matter you will do well.

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Ciro Villa - Florida, USA +Ciro Villa 

Google Plus for me has been a venue that has shown infinite possibilities   So many minds and so many talents, have contributed to expanding the horizon of human inspiration for all of us; it's been a fantastic 14 months journey so far and the future appears only as bright as ever. Using this brilliant and fantastic technology through blog posts, comments, debates, images, sound and hangouts, incredible people, virtual pioneers of a new world, have offered and shared the best of themselves, their knowledge and experience to enhance our human experience.

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Stefan Svartling - Nycöping, Sweden +Stefan Svartling 

Google+ has the most interaction I've ever seen, so when it came, I'll immediately stopped blogging on my old normal blogs, and started to use Google+ as my main blog. My only blog. Why not blog where the interaction is was my thoughts, and I have never looked back.

So to me Google+ means everything. I love Google+ and all the interaction. It's my home online.

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of David Bowden - Santa Monica, California, USA +David Bowden 

The answer to your question is simple really (for me anyway). I came to Google+ to share photography. Unlike many digital photographers I tend to shoot as I did in film. Meaning, I take a moment to compose, measure and shoot. I don’t use the back of the camera much, I tend to focus on what I see in the viewfinder and my overall composition.

What this means is that I don/t take as many pictures as others do. I also have a standard that I don't share "crap." If I am going to put my name on it then it needs to be good.

What does this have to do with my best moment on G+. Well, this set of circumstances is what led to my writing. You see, I ran out of photos to share. Being focused on growing my following I decided to share a story as opposed to a photo.

It led to the post "A Good Day" which is to date one of my most popular shares and most read and commented posts.

https://plus.google.com/u/0/112022983294967948367/posts/aXWLMoXhwLr

It was on this Wednesday that people began following me in larger numbers, commenting and engaging more and the stories followed. Week after week. Sharing this story and reading the comments and seeing the shares associated with it are by far my best experience on G+ and is what keeps me coming back.

I have some very loyal followers, great friends and enjoy the community. Good luck with your book, and thanks so much for thinking of me.

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Glenn Rogers - Bedford, Texas, USA +Glenn Rogers 

What Google Means to Me, and More Importantly, Why the Hell Should You Care? +Sean Cowen here ya go!

Oh sure, I could tell you about how I happened upon Google Plus through Facebook and Twitter, thereby making the obligatory comparisons to both social networks, eventually giving Google Plus the nickname "TwitBook".  Or I could tell you that I was instantly impressed with the social network for a number of reasons - 1) no stalkers 2) no Zynga invites and most importantly, 3) did I mention "no stalkers"?

I could tell you all that, but if you're reading this, you've probably realized that I just told you.  So there ya go.

Google Plus, short of the invention of sliced bread and Velcro, is a true miracle, and has become a daily addiction of mine.  A place where I can share my musings with people who will either appreciate them, or in some cases, report me to Google.  (I'm guessing my recipe for "sliced Velcro bread" didn't trend like I hoped)

I have made a number of valuable friends on Google Plus, most with the same twisted sense of humor.  Outside of most national sanitariums, people like that are a true rarity, so yay!

Google Plus gives me a place to be who I am, with people who appreciate who I am, and in turn I appreciate them for being who they are.  Except for that one guy - he's just wacko.

I just happened to jump into the social network world when the water was still cold, and since I joined Google Plus, my nipples have never been happier.

So here's to you Google Plus!  From movie riffing hangouts to shameless self-promotion, I can think of no better social network.  Facebook and Twitter may have a lot of pluses (ha! see what I did there?), but Google Plus will always be the reason I love social networks.

Oh, and stalking?  Still the reason I hate them.

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Joel Poirier - Ottawa, Ontario, Canada +Joel Poirier 

I joined Google+ out of curiosity in the early weeks of its launch and found a strong comics and art community already thriving. For a while I went relatively unnoticed: I'm not an exceptionally sociable person in my real life, I don't find it easy to meet new people, but through sharing my artwork I found people who were just like me and that made it easier to come out of my shell. 

I persisted in sharing my art and my interests through my comics, my drawings of album covers from my vinyl record collection and eventually creating, quite spontaneously, the Name That 80s Movie game, which has become my greatest social media success. Here I am now, just over a year later, and I'm in hundreds of thousands of circles with my work be seen all over the world, thousands more adding me every day, all because I share about the things that make me happy. Success is waiting here for anyone! "

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Martin Watson - Spanish Town, Jamaica +Martin Watson 

I don't have much to say though. Not much other than that G+ is the first social network I actually wanted to join. On all the others that I've ever existed, I was, in a sense, dragged onto them kicking and screaming. I first found out about G+ on the day the invite only public field beta had just started. After much begging and pleading to any and everyone that I knew was on here, I managed to get in just before midnight on July 3 in the first week.

Since then, everything for me changed. The biggest change for me is that I've suddenly become more social. This is very strange for me, because I'm an extremely antisocial person. To an extent, I still am in real life. On here, however, I'm almost a different person. I can't explain it. I have absolutely no idea how that happened.

I have also met some of the most amazing people ever, large, small, and somewhere in between. In a sense, how big or small you are didn't matter here, because it's almost a level playing field for everyone. I still get super nervous and surprised whenever someone like +Mike Elgan mentions me in a post of his that I commented on.

Speaking of surprise and extreme nervousness, something of the sort happened earlier this year that almost made my heart stop. It was while we were all in an uproar about CISPA, with SOPA/PIPA and ACTA all still fresh in our minds. I had posted the contents of a mass email from someone at Demand Progress. It was a very passionate and moving message. Mere minutes after posting it, I was contacted by an extremely big name in the tech media space. (I won't mention her name here, but if you really want to know I'll tell you privately. I'm still in shock from all this even though it was months ago.) She asked me to write a commentary on CISPA. A commentary? Me? I'm supposed to write something about CISPA?! Me? Seriously? What the hell do I know? I don't even live in the US! I was in so much shock that I didn't even know to respond! I was surprised she contacted me in the first place!

After calming down, I eventually wrote something. I had a friend that was a writer and a friend that wasn't review it. They both liked it, so I sent it to her. I heard nothing at all from her since, and I hadn't seen it posted or mentioned anywhere at all. Not on her blog, her publication that she was building with other tech media giants, not on Twitter or G+. After a week of not seeing anything, I just assumed she either didn't need it anymore, it slipped through the cracks, or that it wasn't good enough. She is an extremely busy woman, so I understand if she didn't have much time to waste on lowly me.

It was all still an amazing and nerve racking experience though. It was my first time dealing with someone as high profile, prominent and successful and her. No wonder I was so scared. If it happened again, I would be better prepared to handle it, but I would still be scared out of my skin!

In addition to all that, I have somewhat found a sort of extended family on G+. I have a second mother on here, a few sisters I can actually get along with (only my own sister in real life), and other extremely amazing people that would find very difficult to now live without. Funny thing though, through all this, I've only ever been in a handful of hangouts. It's the only feature of G+, aside from Games, that rarely ever use. The few I've been in were all really great though. :)

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Pam Adger - Riverside, California, USA +Pam Adger 

My first public post was July 19th 2011. I came home from work and was talking to my daughter Sydney about this new social network by Google called Google Plus. I was lamenting that the thing was invite only and I was dying to get an invite. She then proceeded to tell me she had a “membership to the Google Plus club.” She said…..Mom, I know all about G+. My friend Kim invited me two weeks ago.  So with membership comes invites so I got an invite from my 18 year old daughter who to this day has less than 100 followers. I immediately posted the following 

Trying out some recommended follows. So far I am underwhelmed. Self promotion and immaturity. I wish I had a better list of recommendations.

I think it was 3 or 4 weeks before the suggested Users List (SUL) was released. It kinda needs a little work still.  In the beginning I was all about politics. That lasted about a month. I rarely post political now. I have found a great group of people. G+ is my second social network. Facebook was first and I still have my settings pretty locked down though I do post public and people could subscribe to me but they don’t. 35 or 40 IRL people (except Matt Gibson and Tim Jones) are my “friends.” Most are my family and coworkers and I can go weeks without logging on. G+ was something I took to right away. Almost instant chat with people from around the world? Holy Crap how awesome is that?????

One year later, I still spend between 4 and 6 hours per day every day including weekends and holidays on G+. It is really more of my life than I would like. 

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Dolidh Young (Eileen)  - Denny, Scotland, United Kingdom +Dolidh Young 

I started off my G+ life in beta... A time that was very difficult for me as I'd lost my father to cancer the year before and I was still grieving pretty badly. Focusing on putting positive energy into something gave me a push to get social again and not just spending my time moping about the house.

And in turn, by being more interested in doing things, I started to get out the house a bit more, travelling around Scotland doing things I want to do and seeing people I love to hang around with... All pretty much documented on my G+ profile. I use G+ like a blog and a vlog.

G+ has really encouraged me to be expressive, creative and a little bit wacky with the new people I've met through posts and hangouts. It's a place I feel I can be myself ^_^ Happy and accepted.

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Diniz Chico - Lisbon, Portugal +Diniz Chico 

Well after a traumatic experience with Facebook, had decided to say "no more Social Sites." Completely unmotivated, spent almost 6 months without dedicating myself to my woods, that i always treated as an hobby and a way to relax my mind. But last December one of my sons, said to me: Why not Google +?? Immediately i reply nooo. He argued that it was a different system, but my Noo, prevailed. But i kept that in mind!! Huummm? Google +? Didn't never heard about it and decided to see. 

So i opened my account just for fun and had a circle about Photography, just to see what happened. I upload a few pics of my works and that's it. For 2 or 3 weeks after i even remember i had a new account. When i opened it one day, i noticed that some people had shown interest in what i was doing. Well I felt very cherished by the interest and the comments i received daily and since then i never stopped. And now i found myself like a "Phoenix" reborn from the ashes, always with new projects in my mind to make !! So a BIG thank you to all the Google Art Community..:)

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Nils Hitze (Kojote) - Bayern, Germany +Nils Hitze 

I was one of the first German users here and from Day one G+ feels like the home i had (in the Internet) back in my days as an Admin of Tutorials.de ... and it get's better every freakin day. I had this on Twitter, in the beginning. But not in this quantity.

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Daniel Koeker - Riverside, California, USA +Daniel Koeker 

I joined Google+ when it was in beta, mostly because a) it was a Google product and b) because I was in beta and others weren't so neener neener. I wasn't sure what I expected when I came here, and goodness knows G+ has changed enough over the short time I've been here. It's quite unlike anything I've experienced from a social network before, and that sounds like an advertisement, but I've really, genuinely enjoyed myself here.

I've met a number of people who were complete strangers that I now talk to on a regular basis. I met people who are now voices of the G+ community. I've hungout with total strangers, talked about various topics, watched shows, got exposed to Doctor Who, and for some reason there are nearly five thousand people who have me in their circles. That is so weird to me.

What I've found here is a tight-knit community of intelligent people from all over the place. I've done more than I could have imagined here so far, and unlike other social networks that have felt like a chore, this is something I actually look forward to. As cool as G+ may be in design, it's the people that make it up, and some of the best people I know are all here; and the best part is that I wouldn't have known them at all if not for G+. I'd say that's pretty nifty.

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Jamie Crouthamel - Charleston, South Carolina, USA +Jamie Crouthamel 

What Google+ has done for me is to present an amazing and fascinating group of people who have accepted me for exactly who I am. The ideas, thoughts, photos and work I post here have sparked incredible conversations and connected me to a network of people that encourage me and hold me accountable for being my most authentic self. 

Who knew people I have never met in person can help me to become the best version of myself? Google+ took the social network and elevated it to a network of intelligent, passionate individuals who have created the perfect environment for ideas and community to blossom.

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Paul Stickland - Dorset, United Kingdom +Paul Stickland 

I joined G+ when my working life spirits were at a low ebb. I was drawing towards the end of a four year legal dispute that had seen all my best selling children's books out of print along with a subsequent cessation of royalties. I had been exploring the possibilities of selling my artwork via the world of Print on Demand during this time and guessed that G+ would be a great form of promotion for this.

In days I realised that it would be so much more!

I was talking to scientists, 3D printers, photographers, fellow illustrators, authors, artists, programmers, geeks and stars, WOW!

Artists, illustrators, authors can lead quite isolated lives and this huge rush of stimulation has been incredibly energising.

With the amazing benefit of the crowd-editing we enjoy here, you have all encouraged me to create so much new work this last year, work that I truly feel is closer to my true self than that coaxed out of me by 'professional' editors, whose decisions are, quite reasonably, driven by commercial imperatives.

However this intelligent and informed crowd-editing has resulted in a huge body of work, which in turn has led to a great deal of interest from the big publishing houses. What can I say?

Not just for this but for the friendship and humour shared with new friends around the planet, Thank You!  

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Brooke Johnson - Rogers, Arkansas, USA +Brooke Johnson 

Google+ first drew me with its Facebook-and-Twitter-but-better appeal. I was one of the first plussers, jumping in while it was still in beta, and it was interesting feeling my way around the new digital space, slowly finding interesting people to toss in my circles. After my first post last July, I’ve circled 900 people, and I’m flattered to say that over 1700 people have circled me—a number which seems to grow every day. Sometimes, I’m not sure why people circle me. I’m just a goofy girl who posts about writing and other things—Doctor Who, steampunk, science, publishing insights, various nerd-doms, music and movies I love, and random things I find interesting or pretty or funny. I guess people like that, or they wouldn’t keep circling me. :)
 
I have never had so much fun on a social network as I do on Google+, and when I go there, I can easily spend over an hour just talking to people. Actually talking. Conversations. That’s what I love about it. Everything I say means something. I’m talking to friends and having important discussions about science and fiction and what ifs, and of course, Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston, who are very important topics. When I post something new, I feel like people are listening, and I feel like these people, separated by a few states or countries or sometimes oceans, that we’re all a big family, that we would do next to anything for each other. I consider a lot of people on Google+ as friends, and if I’m ever in close proximity to some of them, I will definitely let them know so we can meet up and have real life hijinks.
 
Now, I don’t interact will all 900 of the people in my circles or the 1700 people who have circled me, but there are a good 100 or more people that no matter what they post, I’m going to read it. I’m going to comment or +1 or share it, because they’re just that fascinating and fun.
 
As a writer, I’ve found Google+ to be a great place to talk about writing with other writers, whether they be novelists or screenwriters or poets, at all levels of experience. It’s a great place to mine information, test waters for an idea, share stories and updates about my writing experiences, talk about books, and debate about this publishing method or that one. It’s a community. And on the flipside, I feel like I’ve really connected with readers (who are sometimes writers too). I can talk about my book to people who actually care, who want to know how my next book is going so they know when they’ll get to read it. I have fans on Google+, people who will support my writing in any way that they can, and that’s fantastic. My experience as a writer on Google+ has shifted my focus from sales numbers and ratings and reviews to readers, to people who love books as much as I do, who love my books (or will, once I have more published). I feel like these people will stick with me and support me as long as I’m putting books out, and they make me feel like my writing and my books are worth it. They make me feel like I’m worth it.

I love that Sean has me in his Cool People that Matter circle (I hope that’s what it’s really called. It should be, if it isn’t already). I love that I stand out in a sea of other writers, artists, curators, and generally awesome people. I love that I matter to someone I’ve never met, that I’m interesting enough to be singled out, especially when we’re constantly bombarded from all sides with this picture and that video and ooh look! a funny gif and an interesting article, and so on. I feel like I’ve actually made connections with people I never would have met had I not tried this new social front, and I don’t think I ever would have really showcased myself—who I am, what I like—as I well as I have on Google+. And really, I’m more myself there than anywhere else.
 
Google+ is my digital home, where I can talk and discuss and rant and promote and share without constraints, without judgment, without hesitation, and I love it.

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Laurie M +Laurie M  

When I first came to G+, in was still very new, but even so I was in complete awe and wonder over all that I found here. It was different from all the other places that I had been and tried and never really connected with, as well as different from the places that I had connected with. I'm very active other places, but my activities there are more targeted. Here the things I find speak to my heart, my mind, my soul and my spirit like nowhere else.

This place speaks the artistic side of me. I've found beautiful stories, music, videos and images from true artists in not just paint, but in photography, stories, poetry, music, mixed media, technology and so many other ways that I'd never dreamed of before it simply astounds me daily. 

I'm inspired by the true heart that I find in the people and their stories and experiences. The open their hearts and allow me in and in doing so they simply speak to my heart and my mind and move me in so many unexpected ways, I'm once again in awe and wonder.

I've enjoyed the interest, love and support of such beautiful and interesting people from all over my own nation and even further afield, throughout the world. I've even discovered some true friends in people that I would never otherwise have had an opportunity to have talked to let alone developed a relationship with. My life is all the richer for having these people and these experiences in it and even if I never were to speak to them again, they have changed me forever and hold a special place in my heart that is all their own. 

So in answer to your inquiry of what are my favorite things, the beauty of the people and all the wonders I see daily would have to be my favorite things and what has it meant to me, it's meant I've found people that speak to my heart and have enriched by life in their own unique and individual ways and I believe that they've changed me for the better.

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Sarah Hill - Columbia, Missouri, USA +Sarah Hill 

Google Plus Hangouts are a magic carpet that can take you around the block or around the world in a matter of minutes.  Hangouts are a free broadcast tower in the middle of a powerful crowdsourcing tool where businesses have the ability not only to find customers but connect with them face to face.  More on the emerging #humanmedia movement here.

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Denise Morgan Kalicki - Manahawkin, New Jersey, USA +Denise Morgan Kalicki 

I can in on invite last July and knew no one!  But I could tell, right away, I had found my community!  Oh the things I saw and read, the wonders of the beautiful photography being shared, the wisdoms, and openness of sharing/trading/engaging ideas.  By the end of Oct. sparked by an idea raised in a post, I created the G+LeapYear Day Project- A day in the life of G+. 

The project asked that everyone on our +1 day of the year (Feb. 29th) submit a photo that showed some part of their life.  That was a wild, wooly and crazy day! 

I met wonderful people here, such as you Sean, the man who shared delightful movie shorts that made me laugh or haz a sad.  People play DJ, sharing playlists and videos.  We have hangouts that are magic! We have covert cupids, secret santas, and many heartwarming fund raisers. We have joined together to stop child abusers +Plussers Against Child Exploitation to help keep those idiots off G+ and continue to keep this a safe community.  

We all, now have good new friends, teachers and communities build over the net that joins us.  We can HiRL, hangout, watch stars being born, be interviewed for a news show in Missouri, get zombized, and best of all, all the food porn!  Oh the places we will go!  Even if we are bedridden because others can take us along via hangouts. I love G+ because of the wonderful people here.

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Bearman Cartoons - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA +Bearman Cartoons 

When I first got an invite to join Google Plus, I ignored it. I was already on twitter (@bearmancartoons) and on Facebook both as a profile (https://www.facebook.com/bearmancartoons) and a page (https://
www.facebook.com/Beartoons). Why did I need yet another social media outlet. After the fifth email, I said what the heck and signed up.

Within the first few days I noticed something different that the other two lacked. Facebook is almost like a club where you have to know someone to get in. We have to know each other to “friend” one another and converse. For someone who draws cartoons for fun, that seemed great for my real life friends but horrible for creating new online ones.

With twitter, there was another issue. It gave me the ability to follow anyone and there was no obligation or expectation that they would follow me back. I could see what they had to say and even respond. Problem was, it is a pain trying to follow a conversation on twitter especially if you aren’t there in the beginning.

That is the difference I saw in Google Plus. I had the ability to follow whomever I wanted and we could engage in a conversation that was easy to follow as it was all in one place. The best of Facebook combined with the best of Twitter. In fact I posted this cartoon to show how I saw the difference between Google Plus and some other social media outlets. http://beartoons.com/2011/08/28/why-google-plus-is-better-than/


So I started circling people. About 200 based on my interests of cartoons, learning and Cincinnati. Some followed me back and some didn’t. Many I knew from other social media already. Where I think most people get frustrated with Google Plus is the expectation that everyone you circle will automatically circle you back. Not true. The next step is to actually ENGAGE with the people you circle. That gives them a better idea of who you are and gives them more of a reason to want to circle you back.

Three months in and this was the result: http://beartoons.com/2011/11/27/social-media-love/

And that was before circle shares.

I thought that all this would lead to more people visiting my site. Guess what? It didn’t. But it didn’t matter. I realized that I now had two equally engaging outlets for my work. In addition, I could post other thoughts and finds that don’t work well with my blog but are perfect for Google Plus.

One of those things was drawing caricatures. Sure I have done caricatures of politicians and celebrities in the past but avoided real people for some reason with a few giveaways on my blog. Inspired by Googlers like +byron rempel and +Cliff Roth, I started doing caricatures of other Google Plus members and started calling them “Muggings”. Anyone circling me could get on the list, but those who commissioned me would move to the front of the line. And because I am lucky enough to have a full time job, this was bonus money. 

So instead of having people pay me I could support one of my favorite charities, Crayons to Computers (http://www.crayons2computers.org/). This organization makes sure students and teachers in the Cincinnati area have the school supplies they need to be successful. So instead of paying me directly, I would have the person donate money directly to C2C in honor of Bearman Cartoons. So not only did they get their caricature but also get the tax write off!!! So I can play around on Google Plus, draw some pictures and raise money for charity. How cool is that?!!

So then I wanted to see the power of Google Plus. Using my own money, I promised to donate $1 to a DC comic led fight to combat hunger in Africa for every share of a video describing the program. https:/
/plus.google.com/103857459148999991693/posts/WUpMKa2eiQf

Several days later I announced the total of 387 shares of the video which spread the message to more people than I ever would on my blog. https://plus.google.com/103857459148999991693/posts/ gNaH8VSSuEc

Which led me to May 2012. For four years on my website, I have done a charity challenge where I will donate more and more money for my readers to take on certain challenges. Challenges included paying for every new twitter/facebook follower, guest cartoons, among other things. (http://beartoons.com/ 2012/04/29/bearman-cartoons-charity-challenge-2012/) In the first three years, I put a limit on what I would spend and never hit it. This year with the help of Googlers, I hit the goal within 3 weeks. In addition, for the first time I promised to match donations to Crayons to Computers and several Googlers stepped up including, Ann Marie Dwyer , Liz Krane and Shani Hiraoka.

The support I have gotten from both my work and my fundraising efforts has been nothing short of amazing. What I think is sad, is that I have found myself at times checking into Google Plus before I even check my own blog. Well maybe not that sad.

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Andrew Coffman (Firkked) - Oakley, California, USA +Andrew Coffman 

I heard about Google Plus just as the Beta was coming to a close and I pestered a Facebook friend for an invite (who is no longer active here).

Once here I found a great community that wasn't out to maximize friends for digital trinkets in online games or ranting about divisive issues with no hope of rational discourse, instead I found a community of diverse interests and a sincere desire to engage.

I had heard of engagement in social media, but never understood the context before my time on G+. I had control of both my message and who saw it, later I had control of how I saw others presenting their own messages.

Since I have been here I have been a part of helping others in real life through donations, wish lists, social activism, teaching, learning,  debates and live discussions in the hangout feature.

I have been able to share with others the audio-visual peeks into my little corner of the world and others have inspired me to share parts of my life I would have never shared in other outlets.

What Google+ Means to Me: The Story of Matthew Rappaport  - Bayside, New York City, New York, USA +matthew rappaport 

The Google+ Experience has and continues to be all about The People or YOU+ (as I like to post it). There are many social experiences online through many websites that have offered very cool  moments but G+ is the first one where people have gone all out in meeting others & interacting with complete strangers. It didn't take long to find people on the stream and through Hangouts to make the entire PLUSperience become more 4D than any that has come before.

There are no limits on how you can use PLUS and be creative, dive deep in head first showing the world not just your passions & life but YOU+ , your full personality. It's pretty amazing to show the world YOU+ through what you enjoy and easy to pick up on others by what they post, how they are in hangouts and eventually getting to +HIRL  (Hangout in Real Life) with them to make it a FULL, Complete CIRCLE!

I don't just say I have online friends or people I talk to online but I really do have brand new friends as well as people that I've now known over a year that are some of my best friends. There are so many on here with so much to share from art & music to comedy & culinary skills to humanitarian efforts and a whole lot that is nothing short of #awesomesauce !

Each day I'm excited to see what my friends are posting as it leads to discovering new things, new people and what's going on in the world! Nowhere else has people involving people in such a selfless way to really engage and truly mean something more. 

As a new PLUS day came around, I found myself going for it and posting what I wanted to, when I wanted to. People laughed at me for using hashtags, mocked me for not understanding my humor or style and even thought I posted way too much but they were in a minority. It's actually refreshing to have diverse opinions and people not being afraid to express themselves here which is a big part of what makes it great. 

After the beta summer of Google+ and hanging out many hours to the point of seeing the sunrise more than I ever did before before sleeping, I decided to create a Hangout Chat/Interview show called Hangout Conversations w/Matt Rappaport to showcase people I've met on G+ and not just what they do but who they are and to show the world how awesome the entire Hangout / PLUSperience actually is. 

This lead to many G+ Pages and organizing the 1st H.I.R.L. in NYC back in Feb 2012 and just having a second amazing time in August with #nychirl2 . People from Google+ are part of my daily online AND offline life & it has made my world become so much more incredible & Plustastic than ever before! I even had the pleasure of meeting, photowalking , breaking bread & rocking out with the author who is a lot of fun and truly cares with his true dedication here that you can see in his every post and of course, +FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS  FTW! 

I look forward to what's to come and would suggest that you start by posting what you love, resharing stuff that amuses you, searching for keywords that do it for you to find even more people & content to add to your PLUSworld. And.. Definitely HANGOUT! Once you do, you'll be hooked, looped & circled!

How to Get Engagement in G+ Communities

Have you ever wondered why some G+ community posts get more engagement than others?

There are lots of ways to encourage engagement but one of my top tips is to avoid trying to sell to fellow members. Rather than trying to sell your goods or services, network with fellow members; get to know them; help to build a real sense of community.

My top 10 recommendations for getting the most out of a G+ community are here > http://www.beckettandco.co.uk/social_media_blog.html?part_id=178710&post_id=18656&action=view_comments

How to Build Powerful Alliances on Google+
by +martin shervington 

One tip to try: Narrow Your Prospects
"As you share other people’s content, you’ll start to recognize leaders you can have the most natural and reciprocal relationship with. These prospects are likely to be others in your industry whose work complements your niche.

For example, Martin's focus is on G+ community building that delivers search results and +Ronnie Bincer  is focused on Google Hangouts. This works well for them! 

Network with people who naturally complement your niche.

After you identify the leaders you want to ally yourself with, you can either let things develop naturally or have a frank conversation to discuss how you can assist each other in community growth."

Act As Your Google+ Page Across The Web
Share, Comment and +1 Websites as a page, not as a profile

Local businesses, brands, organizations or artists choose a Google+ Page instead of a Google+ Profile. Pages are always managed by one person or several people, but pages can also plus, share and comment other people's posts - just switch between your profile and the page.

You can give your Google+ Page its own Username and password and act like a page across the web, and you can do this even easier if you use the new Profile Management functions of your Google Chrome Browser.

Open Posts directly on CircleCount
and save time while checking out new profiles

We have launched a new button next to each post which will open the post as embedded post in its own box, so that you don't need to load the post on Google+.
Opening the whole Google+ Page takes much longer than opening just the post in embedded mode, but you know that probably already, right?

Check it out on any profile!
Or with one click for example here: http://www.circlecount.com/p/+CircleCount

Why Google+ is the place for passions

The single biggest controversy about social media, and one that has persisted for two or three years now without resolution, is whether Google+ is a dying wasteland of non-activity, or a hive of conversation and engagement.

It can't be both. So which is it? And why can't this fundamental question be answered?

I believe I have the key to the puzzle, and I'll attempt to solve it once and for all.

Here what the Twitter people and the Facebook people don't understand about the Google+ people:

Are Polls leading to more activity on Google+?

24 hours after Polls have been launched on Google+ it's time to make some analytics ;)

We have checked the 10 most active polls and compared the number of votes with the average number of plusones the users got in the last 50 posts within the last 4 weeks.
Like +Eli Fennell mentioned (on Ello), the novelty factor is probably one reason, but the numbers are pretty clear:

+Marques Brownlee: 16,738 votes vs. 4,508 plusones
+Mashable: 10,778 votes vs. 81 plusones
+Google: 5,761 votes vs. 1,681 plusones
+ZAGAT: 4,964 votes vs. 53 plusones
+ESPN: 3,427 votes vs. 405 plusones
+The Hunger Games: 3,135 votes vs. 1,569 plusones
+matthew rappaport: 2,503 votes vs. 17 plusones
+Google+ Photos: 2,193 votes vs. 1,092 plusones
+OMG! Ubuntu!: 2,183 votes vs. 106 plusones

Polls on Google+

Let's start with one:
Will you use it?


+Rajesh Narayanan you were right.
btw: here is our poll-tool: http://www.circlecount.com/polls/ ;)

via: +Dave Besbris 

Introducing polls on Google+

Michael Jordan or LeBron James? Best pizza in New York City? The definitive James Bond? These are just some of the questions that can only be answered by asking those around us. Starting today, you can use polls on Google+ to settle the burning issues of our generation...or at least find out what your friends are thinking.

Polls make it easy to get opinions from your friends and followers on the things you’re curious about. You can create polls with up to five choices and use photos to make them beautiful and engaging. Check out the album on this post for examples from +The Hunger Games, +Mashable, +Neila Rey and +L’Oréal Paris India.

Of course, no poll is as interesting as the one you want answered, so give it a try for yourself -- just look for the new poll icon when creating a post. Polls will become available over the next few days on Android and the web, and are coming soon to iOS.

We’re excited to see how polls will spark conversations, so please share feedback with us as we work to make polls great for people, pages and communities on Google+.

Show which communities you are part of on your Profile

+Ronnie Bincer described everything perfectly about this Google+ Update in his post.
No need to re-write everything ;)

#googleplusupdate  

Show which communities you are part of on your Profile ...or not
Looks like we can now show others which communities we are part of on Google+. This is great in that we get to choose which ones we want others to see and that can be helpful to those that have come to know like and trust us, as they too may want to take part in similar communities.

Link to a Help doc with lots of details:
https://support.google.com/plus/answer/1047279?p=plus_profile_tab&rd=1
Scroll down to the Community Membership area.

Go to your Profile's "About" page to access this new area.

Some excerpts from the help doc:
You can use your profile to share the Google+ communities that you’ve joined.

Tip: You can choose to show all your community memberships, but if you’re in more than 30 communities, you can only show 30 memberships at a time. If you’d like to choose which 30 show on your profile, use your settings to pick which communities can be seen.

If you don’t want to show any communities on your profile, uncheck the box next to "Show communities on your profile".

If you want to choose the communities you show on on your profile, click the drop-down menu next to "Show communities on your profile" and uncheck any communities you want to hide.

Private communities: If you’re in a private community, your membership can’t be seen by everyone. It’ll be limited to other members of that community and people invited to that community.

Joining new communities: If all your community memberships are shown on your profile (and you didn't select every community one by one), the communities that you join in the future will also be shown on your profile. But if you've selected which community memberships can be seen on your profile, new communities that you join won’t be shown until you add them.

Never give up on Google

We are very sorry, that our server sent the newsletter to the most recipients multiple times last night.
It was not only multiple times but also a few ones with wrong numbers like you can see below in the screenshot of +Lucas Appelmann.

We won't send any other newsletter this week, since the server is already too confused.
Next week everything will be as the weeks before. 
One correct newsletter per user.

Sorry again and thanks to all for your understanding!

Something's wrong in the land of +CircleCount it seems...

Not only did I receive the CC newsletter four times yesterday, I also got one this morning which wasn't quite certain about the number of followers I have. The graph shows a few more than the 0 followers and views that this fifth newsletter claims I have. It also show zero views.

10 Browser Extensions You Won't be able to Live Without

http://iag.me/socialmedia/10-browser-extensions-you-wont-be-able-to-live-without/

After far too long, I've written a new article for my blog!

Are you addicted to browser extensions? I definitely am! Over the years, I’ve discovered some amazing extensions that enhance my productivity and effectiveness, and I thought it was time that I share them with you.

There are so many to discuss, but in this article I am going to discuss 10 which I think you will find very useful.

Can you live without them? Well, technically, yes- you will still live! However, they are going to make your online life easier and help turbo boost your productivity!

1. +Friends+Me Chrome Extension. This is a brand new tool (it's just come out today). I was honoured to be part of the small beta testing team together with +Mike Allton. I have to say, +Alois Bělaška has produced a truly amazing tool here which integrates with the web app, Friends+Me. It enables you to share content as you browse the web. It works very similarly to +Buffer and allows you to post content to Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Tumblr, app.net and Google+ posts. You can cross post selectively and it does so in an intelligent manner. See my article for more information.

2. +MightyText an extension that integrates with your Android device (sorry, iOS users). It allows you to receive and send texts and calls via your phone through your browser. It has some other very cool features

3. +Buffer - I think most people have heard of Buffer, so need I say more? A very easy to use extension that allows you to cross post content to your social media empire!

4. Riffle - Presents you with very detailed info on any Twitter user within the Twitter website. Really useful!

5.  +CircleCount shows you more information about a user including their ranking, number of +1s, reshares, location and interest tags

6. +Evernote *Web Clipper* - sends a snapshot of an article to Evernote. Just wonderful!

7. Sidekick from +HubSpot - It’s a powerful tool that alerts you when recipients have opened your email and from where and from what device. It also gives you more information on person- their professional history, their location, mutual contacts and email history.

8. +RiteTag helps you be seen more in Twitter by displaying the popularity of hashtags in real time. I've just discovered this and it is very useful.

9. +Klout - I know some people ridicule Klout, and I've sometimes done the same. However, it does have its uses.  This extension displays users’ Klout scores directly within Twitter. Very easy to use.

10. +Circloscope - just an amazingly powerful tool, and I can't do it justice in a shortish post. Circloscope allows you to manage your Google+ circles and followers. It also integrates with another tool that I'm going to recommend called +NOD3x (hi +John Dietrich !)

So, what extensions do you use? Let me know- I am all ears!

Restrict your content by age and location

A big new Google+ Update!
You are now able to make your content only available for adults or specific countries.
You can find further instructions here: http://goo.gl/zwblkP

This new feature leads also to a change in the API.
We have had access through the API to all public posts. This didn't change, but now you can have "public" posts that are visible only to a specific group (adults/countries). These posts won't be visible through the API and because of this can't get analyzed in our dashboard (www.circlecount.com/dashboard/).
Please keep this in mind when visiting your dashboard.

+Yonatan Zunger told us:
Right now,  API requests are treated as effective age zero, like logged-out users.
=> CircleCount is younger than you thought ;)

Thanks to +Dave Besbris and his team forb... more »

Restrict your content by age and location
As a content creator you may want to reach customers and fans of all ages, all over the world. Or you may want to engage more carefully, sharing only with age-appropriate audiences or audiences in certain countries. Google+ now enables both pages and profiles to restrict their content based on user age and location.

So for example: you can now decide that only users 18+ or 21+ should be able to see your posts. You can also specify ages on a country-by-country basis if you need something more custom.

To get started just visit your page or profile settings, scroll to ‘Audience,’ and choose your desired option. From then on your posts (old and new) will follow your restrictions.

Check out our Help Center if you’d like to learn more (http://goo.gl/1UTF7Q), and let us know what you think in the comments! We hope today’s update helps you reach your audience even more easily, and responsibly.

The Fastest Way To Find One Of Your Google+ Posts

Exactly two years ago we have launched this feature and it one the most popular features.

Fortunately (for us ;) ) Google+ didn't really improve their search in the meantime.
If you don't know how to search within your posts, check it out here: http://www.circlecount.com/findyourpost

PS: we still love #palindromes  ;)

Dashboard reloaded for all of our 29,592 followers
and everyone else ;)

We have two great news:
- we have an update for our dashboard
- we have reached 29,592 followers[1]

There are two new points in the new dashboard:

1.) An easy way to search in your posts
On the right side above the table with your posts you will find a search field. With this field you are able to search within your post. The search goes through the whole text in your posts although only the first part is shown.
Of course this is also working on the dashboards of your linked pages like you can see in the screenshot attached to this post.

This search is very fast, since nothing has to be loaded after the dashboard is loaded once.
Try it out: http://www.circlecount.com/dashboard/


2.) Two new columns in the posts-table
If we have tracked the number of followers for you at the time of a post, you will see this number directly in the posts-table. 
In the last column you can find the calculated number (plusones + reshares) per follower
With this number you can get a better feeling about which post got the most feedback per follower. This could be very interesting for users with a high growth in the number of followers. Please share with us any interesting point you will find here.

Thanks a lot to all 29,592 of you for listening (=reading) and especially to our beta-testers: +Jaana Nyström, +Michael Stuart and +Jari Huomo

Circle du Soleil
sorry +Cirque du Soleil but I had to ;)

SPARKED: a collaboration between Cirque du Soleil, ETH Zurich, and Verity Studios.
SPARKED demonstrates how state of-the-art technology can be used to combine human actors and quadcopters in a symbiotic, choreographed performance.

Cirque du Soleil, ETH Zurich, and Verity Studios have partnered to develop a short film featuring 10 quadcopters in a flying dance performance. The collaboration resulted in a unique, interactive choreography where humans and drones move in sync. Precise computer control allows for a large performance and movement vocabulary of the quadcopters and opens the door to many more applications in the future.

'Tis all a giant experiment! (+martin shervington)
Is he right +Google+? ;)

Don't get confused if you see a big change in your views number.
As you can see very nice in the chart of +Mark Traphagen, the views number made a short excursion to the higher levels but is back now.

We are back to normal now and (probably) we won't get any info about what happened here.
Gives us a lot of space for speculations...

Google Plus View Counts Drop Again After Big Jump Up

Last week I reported that many Google+ users saw a huge leap upward in their view counts. After some analysis with the help of +CircleCount it appeared that the big jump occurred mostly for user who had been active on Google+ prior to October 2012, which was the earliest date to which view counts (previously) had measured. 

It was our conclusion at the time that it was likely that Google+ had finally added in some amount of the views that happened before October 2012.

However I got an alert from +martin shervington this morning that his view count had dropped back down this past weekend. I checked mine, and sure enough, saw a similar drop. (See graphic below)

► 14 September I had 1 1.3 million increase.
► 21 September I had a 1.2 million decrease

No explanation at this point. Was the increase last week an unintended mistake? A bug? Google+ giveth and Google+ taketh away.___'Tis all a giant experiment! (+martin shervington)

CircleCount May Have the Smoking Gun on Google+ View Count Jump

We've been getting anecdotal evidence from users all day that seemed to confirm the theory of +Gideon Rosenblatt that this past weekend's big jump in view counts for many (but not all) G+ users was because Google finally added in views from before October 2012.

Now +CircleCount may have given us the smoking gun proving that theory. Here's the data they've provided:

100 "old" profiles [1]:
Avg Views on 11th Sep. 2014: 106,343,933
Views Growth from 11th to 15th Sep. 2014: 56.2%

Huge Jump in Google+ View Counts

Over the weekend a number of Google+ users noticed a huge jump in their view counts. In my case it lept up by about 1.3 million views.

At first I speculated that Google+ had just found a bug in their view count database and had done a mid-course correction. But today +Gideon Rosenblatt came up with an intriguing theory which I think may in fact be the explanation.

Gideon noted that his count jumped by 7 million, more than doubling his viewership. He then added two more facts:

1. He had been a lot more active on Google+ in its early days.
2. When view counts were introduced, we were told that they only went back to October 2012 (see http://stonet.co/gplusviews)

Given those facts, it seems possible that what happened here was Google finally extending views back to an earlier point in time.

+John Skeats helps you better understand Google+ Communities

Very nice list of points why a post to a community is auto flagged by Google as spam.

Additional to that you should always stay on topic, since posts that are completely unrelated to the topic of the community will be removed in the most cases manually.

via +Mark Traphagen

Why Your Community Posts Might Be Flagged As Spam

Many people ask why their posts to Google+ communities are flagged as spam by the Google+ spam filters. Google doesn't share details about how the spam filters work work (because that would make it easy for spammer to stay just on the legal side of what the filters would block and annoy us all), but we know -- or at least believe we know -- a few things based on observation:

* Identical or substantially similar posts shared or reshared with multiple communities are more likely to be flagged as spam, especially if they are shared/reshared  within a relatively short period of time. To avoid this, I recommend never sharing similar material to more than three communities within about a two-hour period.

* Posts which contain only links or links with only a minimal amount additional information (also known as "link litter") appear to have a higher probability of being flagged as spam. Such posts violate the rules in many communities. As an aside, there are also strong indications that posts like that also have an extremely low click-through rate.

* Posts which are identical or similar to posts that have been removed from multiple communities for violating the communities' rules appear to have a higher probability of being flagged as spam. It is extremely important to become familiar with a community's rules before posting in the community because the rules vary significantly between communities, and a pattern of violating the rules in some communities might affect your posts to other communities.

* Posts containing the same link or similar links (e.g., links to other posts in the same blog) as posts which were previously flagged as spam appear to have a higher probability of being flagged as spam.

* Posts which are reshares of non-community public or private posts which were reported as spam appear to have a higher probability of being flagged as spam. Note that selecting the option for email notification when sharing non-community posts can lead people to report the posts as spam because many recipients do not appreciate the unwanted emails. You should virtually never use that option unless people have asked to be notified by email.

* Posts by individuals who have previously been identified as spammers by the spam filters have a higher probability of being flagged as spam. If you get indications that your posts are being flagged as spam, it is best to review and change your posting habits promptly. The longer you persist in the same behavior, the longer the spam filters appear to treat you as a spammer. In serious cases, it can even lead to your account being suspended or revoked. 

What happens if your community posts are flagged as spam
When the Google+ spam filters flag a post as spam, it is held in a moderation queue which is only visible to the community's moderators. The moderators then have three options: Approve, which makes the post visible to all community members; Remove, which removes the post from the community; or to Remove, Report, and Ban, which removes the post from the community, reports it to Google, and removes the user from the community. Banned members cannot join the community again unless and until a moderator removes the ban.___+John Skeats helps you better understand Google+ Communities

Very nice list of points why a post to a community is auto flagged by Google as spam.

Additional to that you should always stay on topic, since posts that are completely unrelated to the topic of the community will be removed in the most cases manually.

+Graeme McRae's analysis of our Weather Report
http://www.circlecount.com/weather/

Graeme is sharing here his results after analyzing our Weather Report. Very interesting analysis!

Thanks a lot +Graeme McRae for doing this.

A great weekend with nice weather to all of you ;)

+CircleCount's “Weather” Report shows the average follower growth of all established G+ users at a glance. It's an interesting report, because it shows “weather events” as dips in the graph. No one seems to know exactly what causes these weather events, but the effect is clear: many people have a day of near-zero or negative growth of followers.
     I've taken a close look at this weather report, and I've examined 13 weather events, which I've labeled them A through M. For each one, I noted the date, baseline growth rate, anomalous growth rate for that day, and the dip in follower growth relative to the baseline. Feel free to take a look at that analysis here: goo.gl/cUaTbt
     Now, I would say that “two day events” labeled B, E, and G aren't weather events at all, because the dips follow sudden rises the day before. The total dip in followers over the two days, relative to the baseline, was only −.02% for event “B”, and was actually positive, i.e. higher than the baseline (.05% and .01%) for events “E” and “G”.
     That leaves “A” (−.07%) as the only weather event of 2013, on Feb 27th. Then, in 2014, the biggest events were “K” (−.31%) on Aug 8th, and “C” (−.25) on Mar 24th. July, 2014, was a big month for weather, with dips “H”, “I”, and “J” totaling −.33%.
     Then, starting about a month ago, in mid-August, I noticed the baseline dropped from about .13% down to just .10%, which made me think maybe the weather was getting “calmer”. But then today, we had another weather event, albeit a mild one, −.07%, which I labeled “M”.
     For more daily information, stay tuned to +CircleCount for the current “weather” report! You can find the weather report at circlecount.com/weather.___+Graeme McRae's analysis of our Weather Report
