Ryan Hanley13,023*Nervous About Hosting Your Own Google Hangout on Air?* _Everything you need to know host killer Hangouts on Air._ The best decision I've ever made for my personal brand was to begin recording the Content Warfare Podcast _(audio only)_ as a live Google Hangout on Air. _Is recording live, with an audience, on video, a heck of a lot more nerve racking than a prerecorded audio only show?_ Yes. _Does it make the experience 100x more Gangster (valuable) for Content Warfare Nation?_ Absolutely.

Social Media Keyboard Shortcuts

Jamie Spencer from +Setup a Blog Today has put together a very nice infographic describing the keyboard shortcuts you can use on several social media platforms. 

My favorites are j, k and o here on Google+ to scroll through the stream.
Are you using shortcuts anywhere?

Get the original image here: http://www.setupablogtoday.com/2015-social-media-keyboard-shortcuts-guide-infographic/

I hope it is ok for you Jamie, that I've reduced the size of the image!

* Google is constantly policing Google+ for Terms of Service (TOS) violations. Repeat violators and serious violators can have their accounts closed. When that happens, all actions by the accounts that contribute to the view count are removed permanently. There is usually relatively constant activity in that area, however occasionally the Abuse Team detects a pocket for related accounts which can result in a substantial drop affecting specific pages. Note that this would not imply that the person experiencing the drop did anything wrong, only that people who viewed their profiles/pages or acted on their posts did.

* When you delete posts and photos that have activity associated that contributes to the view count associated with them, your view count is reduced by whatever activity was associated with the deleted items.

(I hope it is ok for you that I copied this text from your comments)

20.000 Chrome Extension Users
http://www.circlecount.com/chrome

Like you can see in the attached image, we have a lot of new chrome extension users in the last days.
We have hit today the huge milestone of 20.000 users!

These are 20.000 persons who have installed our extension and are running Chrome at least once per week.
This is unbelievable and something we would have never imagined when we launched version 0.1 ;)

Are you one of these users?
What is your favorite feature and why isn't there a review written by you yet? http://goo.gl/XNAqQ ;)

Let's draw some circles, algorithmically.

Dynamic Opacity
#CirclesCounted: 70

A pulsation can be generated with different elements. In this case the pulsation is done by many circles with a dynamic opacity. The more circles used, the less you can see different circles in the animation.

You can find the live animation and the full (processing) code here:
http://www.circlecount.com/processing/4

And here is the overview in case you have missed one:

Enjoy!

#CirclesCounted: 35

For a Greek guy this is pretty interesting. Especially if you are living in Germany and always thought that Spanish is the language to blame when you don't understand something.

Also interesting:
Looks like Japanese people don't have any problems at all since they don't have an equivalent of “It’s all Greek to me” ;)

Fascinating graph. "The phrase actually comes from a Medieval Latin proverb, “Graecum est; non potest legi,” meaning “It is Greek; it cannot be read.” From there, the phrase filtered into many European languages. Today, English, Spanish, Polish, Norwegian and Swedish all use Greek as a metaphor for incomprehensibility.

Mark Liberman, a professor linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania, started wondering what the equivalent was in different languages. Drawing on a variety of sources, including Wikipedia, Omniglot and user comments, he created the graph above, which shows the language that other languages use to describe things that are hard or impossible to understand."___#CirclesCounted: 35

Well since it is St. Patricks Day it seemed like a good day to release something a bit ridiculously over-the-top. If I were to give one of the items in this post away every day it would take me 5 weeks to give them all away. 

I'm giving away every official Google+ logo, icon and template that I've added to my personal visual content creation arsenal. 

Download them here: http://dustn.ws/1CpmfDS

Seriously-- I can't even count the hours spent creating all of these. Mostly, because they're for my own personal use and I've just been maintaining them for a while. 

And the good news? Because they're things I actually use, that means they'll stay updated over time. 

Go go download all my goodies and tell you're designated graphic designer I'm their new best friend.

How to use Spheres to find possible customers
case study by #EagleCo

+Tim Sweeney is describing here what Spheres are and how to use them to get the best result.
Thanks a lot Tim, awesome post.

#plusyourbusiness #marketing #spheres

Building Relevant Google+ Circles For Small Businesses Using Circlecount's Spheres

Using Google+ effectively relies in large part on having properly constructed circles containing people and/or pages that are relevant to your interests and/or task at hand. You could build these circles yourself, but there is service called Sphere, by +CircleCount and offered through +Plus Your Business!, http://goo.gl/SxuUg3, that can speed the process. This post examines Spheres and its use toward a project I'm involved in called #Eagleco . It's also a follow-up to my last post concerning building circles,  see http://goo.gl/IHuuhC.

How I Became Aware of Spheres

I was first introduced to Spheres through +martin shervington Academy. While in the level 3 part of the Academy he mentioned Spheres and provided some guidance on its use. In addition, +Chris Macidis from Circlecount was very responsive and helpful concerning answering any questions I had concerning its use. 

What Is The Spheres Service?

The Spheres service allows you to search  Google+ for profiles and /or pages that are aligned with the topics of interest  and/or to the geographic area you want to focus on. With this criteria in hand you can generate your circles.  Examples of the search criteria you can use include: 

* Searching for keywords in profiles and pages title field - For example skiing, hiking, snowmobiling, etc...
* Searching for keywords in profiles and pages about field - For example skiing, hiking, snowmobiling, etc...
* Geographic location - For example city, country, geo coordinates 
* Relationship status - Ranging from all, civil union, single, married, etc...
* Minimum and maximum follower count - It starts at 10 and goes up to 1 million

What is the Eagleco Project?

To understand how I am approaching and using Spheres, some background on the Eagleco project will be provided. The project consists of a team of Google enthusiasts taking a select group of merchants in the Town of Eagle Colorado and putting them on the digital map. This is primarily through claiming, verifying, optimizing and then socializing the merchants Google My Business (GMB) listings.

The socialize part will rely on the merchants having properly constructed circles with which they can engage and interact with. By doing so, the merchants can raise awareness about their business and work toward meeting the needs of those in the circle. For example, a restaurant in Eagle could interact with hikers who hike in the vicinity of Eagle. If you don't know it, hikers like to eat so restaurants would be relevant to them. With this in mind, we need circles that are geo located around Eagle at the bare minimum. You can learn more about the project at the +EagleCO Vail2015  page.

How Can We Use Spheres?

There are several approaches to using Spheres. First, it can be used to conduct what might be called a Google+ survey. This isn't mentioned in the literature but I prefer to get an idea concerning all available entities, profile and pages, within the geographic area that we are interested in. 

Before doing this survey, we need to get an idea concerning what population centers are within a certain radius distance of Eagle, Colorado. For this we can use a free mapping tool found at http://goo.gl/lW5VAj. Using this tool and Eagle Colorado, a few radius searches were conducted. For example,

* 25 miles from Eagle 
* 50 miles from Eagle 
* 75 miles from Eagle

Obviously the farther way from Eagle you get, the greater number of population centers that would be included. So the question might be, how far away do we set our search perimeters in Spheres? After all, we are trying to create circles relevant to merchants in the small Town of Eagle. But then there is the factor of Eagle being around many tourist destinations and large events. For example, mountain biking is very popular around Eagle, Vail and Beaver Creek are close by and there are events such as Vail2015 which occurred about 25 miles down the road.

I don't have a definite answer concerning how far from Eagle we should extend our search parameters. This would take some experimenting to determine the optimal distance if there is one.

Now let us move on to actually using Spheres for our survey. Since we are just trying to determine the available profiles and pages within a certain radius of Eagle Colorado, we'll first need to look up the geo coordinates for Eagle, Colorado. You can do this by using a site such as http://en.mygeoposition.com/. Once we have the Geo Coordinates we can go over to the Spheres tool and set up our search parameters.

For our survey, we will use the following settings:

City - Leave Empty
Country - Set To All
Geo Coordinates - Enter Eagles coordinates
Radius - Set to 50 miles (arbitrary)
Keywords (Tagline Section) - Leave Empty
Keywords (About Section) - Leave Empty
Profiles or Pages - Set to Profiles and Pages
Relationship - Set to All
Minimum Followers - Set to 10
Maximum Followers - Set to 1,000,000

With these perimeters set we can click Update and this will produce our Sphere output. We can experiment with the distance to see how that changes the output, for example:

* Using 25 miles the results are: 74 profiles and pages
* Using 50 miles the results are: 336 profiles and pages
* Using 75 miles the results are: 1628 profiles and pages

As you can see the resulting output varies depending on the distance used. You'll have to adjust the parameters so that its appropriate for YOUR project. 

A second use of Spheres, which is more in-line with what its designed for, is to create Spheres on a more targeted basis. This would be done by narrowing the search perimeters down by using some of the other fields such as:

* Keywords (Tagline Section) - Use appropriate keyword (s)
* Keywords (About Section) - Use appropriate keyword (s)
* Profiles or Pages - Leaving out pages and focusing on profiles could be more appropriate (Maybe)
* Relationship - Adjust as needed
* Minimum Followers - Set to 10
* Maximum Followers - Set to 1,000,000

In the case of the Eagle project, we'll have to create a list of keywords applicable to the project. For example, skiing, ski, hiking, hike, snowmobiling, snowmobile,  hunting, hunt,  vail2015, etc... These would represent topics of interest in and around Eagle. You can enter your search terms in either or both the Tagline and/or About search field. Spheres will search out each term entered rather than searching for the terms as a search string. You'll want to experiment with this to get an understanding of it.

Even though in marketing we want to segment our audience list appropriately, I'm thinking of creating two Spheres. One using the generic geographic search and the other combining the geographic element with interests. You'll have to use your own judgment concerning what you are trying to do.

A Few Things To Keep In Mind

The radius search is available toward the end of the signup process. Once you've been through the signup process you'll be given access to the more feature rich Spheres tool which has the radius search option. The landing page feature in this post,  http://goo.gl/SxuUg3, is meant to get your feet wet and serve as an introduction to the tool. It does NOT have the radius search built into it.

As with any tool, there are limitation and things to be aware of. As such listed below are a few items to keep in mind.

First, its important to note that Spheres relies on data Circlecount has collected from Google+. Circlecount does not have every profile and page from Google+ in its database. In addition, Spheres does some filtering of it own by including only those profile and pages that have been  active within the past month, and that have with a profile picture.

Second, there are some people who object to being included in Spheres data. The general thought here is that they don't want spammers using this tool to generate spheres through which they could spam people. There are some safety features that prevent this such as the ability to opt out of being included in the Spheres data. In addition, you can only gain access to the Spheres service if you've completed level 1 on the Academy. So this also serves as a vetting process to filter out those who would misuse the service.

Summary

The Spheres service would be another tool to consider if you intend on leveraging Google+ to connect, starting engaging and then establish a relationship with your audience. Part of its effectiveness would rely on what geographic area and topics - interests that are relevant to your endeavor. I would think that those geographic areas that are farther along on the "techno graphic" and which have topics - interest aligned with what you are interested in will produce greater results than those that don't. For example, Silicon Valley would be an area further along the techno graph than Eagle and as such would produce a greater number of output. Same goes for population density, and the areas concentration concerning the topic of interest. 

Since the Eagleco  project is focused on local merchants, much of this post is oriented with that  in mind. 

In the next post, we'll look at what happens next with the Spheres we created.

Something that leads often to confusion.

Thanks John!

Concerned about Unknown People Circling You on Google+? 

Many people who are new to Google+ get concerned by notifications that a person they do not know circled them. The truth is that having someone circle you is completely harmless. Circling on Google+ is not like "friending" on Facebook, which is a two-way relationship. 

The most common concern is that the unknown person might be able to see your private information. They cannot. A person who adds you to their circles can only see information that you share with Public or possibly with Extended circles if that person is in the circles of someone in your circles. People who add you cannot see posts or anything else shared only with your Circles unless, of course, you add them to your Circles.

Another common concern is that unknown people might be able to spam your Stream. That too is impossible. Having you in one of their circles allows people to attempt to share posts with you but the posts will not appear in your Stream unless you add them to your circles. 

That being said, some people simply do not want to be in specific people's circles for one reason or another. You can remove yourself from a person's circles by blocking them. Blocking can cause complications for you, however, so a simple trick is to block a person and then immediately unblock them. (Unblocking does not add you back to their circles.) Using this trick would not prevent them from circling you again, but the odds are excellent that they won't notice that you are no longer in their circles.

If you have further concerns about your privacy on Google+, I encourage you to read the following post about controlling your privacy on Google+:

With project Loon, Google Fiber and project Titan (think Google drones bringing wireless connectivity to remote locations), Google has set its sights on bringing connectivity to all who want it.  

Google as a wireless carrier

There's been a lot of speculation that Google wants to begin providing wireless access as a mobile virtual network operator. To that speculation, Pichai had this to say:

"I think we're at the stage where we need to think of hardware, software, and connectivity together, Especially with things like watches. We don't intend to be a carrier at scale, and we're working with existing partners. You'll see some of our ideas come to fruit in the next few months."

Android

Android Pay was the big announcement here, and this will be integrated with Google Wallet for wireless NFC purchases. Pichai also mentioned that the Android One project (intended to bring a smart phone based on Android to emerging markets for around $100 per unit) was moving ahead. Google hopes to get that price down to half that in the coming years as well.

Google+

There's been a lot of speculation around what exactly is going on with +Google+. There's a clear change with +Bradley Horowitz taking lead with Photos and Streams. 

There will also be other organizational changes, to include a focus on:

- The Google+ Stream
- Hangouts
- Photos

These changes will not be user-facing, and are a focus by Google on improving the G+ platform.

Use circles the right way in infographics

We love circles and we don't like if someone is utilizing them to deceive the viewers.
In the linked article and in the image below you can see how different an infographic can look like when the circle doesn't reflect the value.
Like described in the article this can be a design mistake but it can also be used by intention to make the big circles bigger.

Thanks to +Lucas Appelmann for pointing us to this article in his post about such a wrong infographic: https://plus.google.com/114933219679836342702/posts/QayKu4Znd4d

Another nice infographic explaining why visual content is helpful and what you should (/could) take into consideration to build your brand visually.

h/t +Irfan Ahmad​

How Visual Content Can Improve Your Social Media Marketing - infographic

The say a picture is worth more than a thousand words, so when it comes to capture your audience's attention, take advantage of communicating your message through visual content.

Take a look at the #infographic (below) from +The Media Octopus that illustrates how to get ahead with your brand's visual voice on social media.

Key takeaways:

Be consistent with color: Choose a minimum of two and up to four colors which reflect your brand's personality, and use these throughout all marketing and social media posting activity. Regularity in color will help consumers to become familiar with your brand.

Show personality through typography: The type of font used for your company's branding, as with choice of color, will determine the feelings evoked in consumers, so select wisely! Keep it constant and use up to three font styles across all of your materials.

Choose the right imagery and filters: Although imagery offers the flexibility to be different from the color and font guidelines outlined by your brand, any imagery you use still needs to have a consistent theme. If your company has professional equipment or software, then you may want to create your imagery to suite the look and feel of the brand. If you're on the budget there are a number of free online editing tools, such as +Canva, that can be helpful for creating beautiful graphics.

Read it all here: http://www.digitalinformationworld.com/2015/02/get-ahead-with-your-brands-visual-voice-on-social-media-infographic.html

Happy Valentine's Day!

This animation is a good illustration of a pantograph. Wikipedia says:
A pantograph (Greek roots παντ- "all, every" and γραφ- "to write", from their original use for copying writing) is a mechanical linkage connected in a manner based on parallelograms so that the movement of one pen, in tracing an image, produces identical movements in a second pen. If a line drawing is traced by the first point, an identical, enlarged, or miniaturized copy will be drawn by a pen fixed to the other. Using the same principle, different kinds of pantographs are used for other forms of duplication in areas such as sculpture, minting, engraving and milling.

The Wikipedia page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pantograph includes this animation, which is attributed to the user AlphaZeta.

Creating Relevant Google Plus Circles For Small Businesses

This post considers the topic of creating  relevant Google+ circles for small businesses that have a Google My Business (GMB) listing. The purpose of this would be to have the small business start to engage with those in these circles so as to catch the attention of and then garner the business of circle members. 

This is part of a project I'm involved with called #Eagleco   which consists of putting a select group of merchants from the Town of Eagle Colorado on the digital map by harnessing the power of various Google resources such as GMB listings. You can learn more about the #Eagleco  project at the bottom of this post.

The Circle Idea Explained

The idea is simple, create a circle of entities, profiles - people and pages - businesses/organizations, that a merchant could add to their circles one at a time. Once the merchant does this, they can begin +1ing, commenting and sharing the entities content. This would raise awareness of the merchant in the mind of the entity.

For example, say the entity is a hiker who passes through Eagle on a regular basis. As such the hiker would be made aware of the merchants offering. For example, the merchant could be a restaurant such as +Pastatively.  If you aren't aware, hikers love to eat henceforth restaurants are highly relevant to them. Another example would be other businesses with which the merchant could have a synergistic relationship. Perhaps a restaurant adding nearby places to stay would make sense in this case and vice versa.

Would This Be Worth Doing?

Before pursuing this we must ask whether this would be worth doing. For example, would the effort involved lead to the appropriate offsetting revenue? This process sounds appealing but in the end it has to result in some quantifiable outcome that pays for itself. Primarily that being new, repeat and/or referral business which produces revenue.

Second, would the merchant be willing to engage with these "entities" and/or would they be willing to hire it out. If the merchant isn't willing to engage or pay for someone to do the engaging on their behalf, then this is an exercise in futility I think.

And finally, would this engagement outreach be welcomed by the target entity or just considered spam. The answer to this would depend on the approach used and how relevant the outreach was. We certainly don't want to start flooding the entities stream with notifications nor making a non-relevant outreach.

Precursors Before Doing This

Before proceeding, the merchants Google My Business (GMB) listing has to be properly claimed, verified, configured and optimized. And ideally the merchants other digital assets such as their websites and/or other listings need to be all current, aligned and in a useable state. Meaning, we don't want entities engaging with or searching for the merchant and ending up at an out of date GMB or other asset with the wrong hours, mislocated address, etc.. This would result in a bad user experience.

Defining The Audience

There are two criteria through which this circle audience could be defined. (Perhaps there are more?) First and perhaps the most obvious are those entities within a certain geographic distance of Eagle, Colorado. Defining the relevant distance would be subjective. For example, would it make sense to search within 50, 75, 100 or more miles away from Eagle?

A second criteria would be topic - points of interest based. This could be defined by identifying topics - points of interest within and/or near Eagle, Colorado.  Perhaps determining topics - points of interest that are reached from population centers by passing through Eagle would be useful as well. Examples of topics - point of interest are hiking, hiking trails, mountain peaks, skiing, ski resorts, snowmobiling, snowmobile trails, hunting, places to hunt, shopping, lodging, dining, etc... And perhaps a points of interest around Eagle, Co Google Map might be helpful in this case.

General Outlines of How We Can Go About This

Listed below are some general thoughts concerning how the identification, collection and management of the circles can come about. It's a mix of tools and techniques learned through training offered by +Plus Your Business! and beyond. In the future, I'll be examining these tools and their use toward the  project. And if warranted, a followup post will ensue.

1. +CircleCount - A geocoordinate search around Eagle can be done using the Spheres tool, http://goo.gl/uz6iym.

2. Identifying pre-existing circles which would be relevant - For example, those who have circled the +Eagle Outside page. (This is a form of borrowing an audience)

3. Communities on Google+ - For example, communities focused on Colorado. (Another form of borrowing an audience)

4. +Circloscope - Used for filtering and refinement of the circles. (Another tool)

5. +NOD3x  - This tool is useful for identifying who is talking about what, influencers and who is engaging with topics. We'd have to explore more in-depth whether it can be used to support the specific goal we are seeking in this case.

6. Management and measurement - Given the scale of the Eagle project, I'm hesitant to suggest much here. But the first thought that comes to mind would be a SCRM such as +Nimble could be useful in keeping track of the engagement of those in the circles. Then there is the question of measuring this effort. Perhaps tagging each circled entity and feeding it through Analytics might work here to measure the response and conversion. This definitely needs more thought.

7. Finding - borrowing Google reviewers - +James Dearsley  mentioned this in a #pybshow  and it sounds logical. Looking at businesses within the geographic area of Eagle, then identifying reviewers of those businesses, categorizing them and placing them into a circle sounds appealing.

Summary

I'm not sure how efficient and effective this process would be. Perhaps it might depend on where the merchant was located, such as in a densely populated area as well as how far along the "technological graph" the circled entities are. On the other hand, perhaps this could be refined into a workable process.

Great tips and explanations by +George Cohn 

This Week In The Google+ Help Community
Circles: what are they, what do they do, and how can I use them

Hey everyone! Time for the latest Google+ Help Weekly Report, where we discuss a trending topic within the Google+ Help Community!

What are circles?

Google+ was originally designed to mirror the real world much more faithfully than other social networks. The idea is that in real life, the nature of the conversations we have vary, depending on whom we’re talking to. You don’t normally share photos of your family members with your book club, or discuss web design with your friends at the gym, for example.

Circles were supposed to model groups of people in your life that share common interests. So you could set up a Family circle and a Book Club circle and a Web Design circle and a Friends At The Gym circle. Some individuals may be in more than one circle. You may have a family member who is also a member of your book club and also goes to the gym with you.

When you make posts, you can target the specific groups who might be interested in reading them, and spare the ones who might not be. Also, you could temporarily limit your view of incoming posts to a specific circle, and see only those kinds of discussions.

Who can see my stuff?

When you share a post or a photo, you can say which circles or individuals are able to view it. That doesn't mean they will see it, it means they can see it. If you want no restrictions, you can make it a Public share, and anyone can see it.

For non-Public shares, you can choose Your circles or Extended circles. If you choose Your circles, everyone in all of your circles (there’s a setting to exclude some circles from this category) will be able to view your post. Extended circles is Your circles + everyone in “their” circles. If you want to be more selective, you can choose any number of specific circles or individuals. 

Who can really see my stuff?

If you share to Public, the people most likely to see it are:
those put you in one of their circles
those who look at your profile
those who have in their circles someone who +1’ed your post

Also, if your post sees a lot of activity (comments, reshares, +1’s) it gets on the “What’s hot” list, and may be presented to anyone who opens the Google+ Explore tab and clicks “What’s hot”, or allows “What’s hot” content to appear in their stream, even if they don’t have you in any of their circles.

If your share is not to Public, the people who can see it are limited to the circles you specified. Of those, the most likely to see it are:
those put you in one of their circles
those who look at your profile

Whose stuff will I see?

Adding someone to your circles is basically subscribing to see their posts in your home stream. It doesn't guarantee you’ll see all their posts.

The mix is determined by Google’s relevance algorithm, which seems to be in a constant state of change and refinement. It can be influenced by an amount (none, more, standard, fewer) that you can dial in for the circle the person is a part of. To control the amount, click the gear icon that appears when you view the circle’s posts.

The connection doesn't have to be two-way, someone you circle doesn't necessarily have to add you to any of their circles. 

Also in the mix are the “What’s hot” posts. As with circles, you can dial the amount (none, more, standard, fewer) by going to the What’s hot page and clicking the gear icon.

What else can I do with Circles?

You can control the visibility of the elements of your profile. For example, you can restrict your employment history to friends and family (assuming you’re maintaining circles of them).

You can customize who can invite you to hangouts.

Can I use circles for secret conversations?

Circles provide great access control for keeping discussions away from those who would be bored or uninterested. But remember, anyone who does have access could make a screenshot and send it wherever they want. So if you have information that really must be kept quiet, your best plan is to keep it far away from the Internet.

Remember, what happens on the Internet stays on the Internet!

What about shared circles? Can they help me get a larger audience?

First, what are your reasons for using Google+. Business? Pleasure? Camaraderie? In most cases, follower quality is far more important than quantity. A large follower count looks like social proof, but it doesn't necessarily lead to more engagement. Some strategies for increasing follower count involve sharing huge circles, but if you add one of these it ends up cluttering your stream with stuff you don’t care about or engage with, and it cheapens the whole experience.

On the other hand, a circle that has been carefully curated can enrich your stream. Look for the ones that are curated for an area you’re interested in, by someone you trust. They usually contain fewer than 100 profiles.

How do I remove a person from a circle?

This help article explains how to remove someone from a single circle
https://support.google.com/plus/answer/1047849?hl=en

To remove them from all your circles (from the desktop) search for them in Google+, then use the dropdown menu at the upper right of one of their posts and choose “Remove from circles”

How do I remove myself from someone else’s circles?

Short of asking them, you can’t. Even if you could, there’s no point because it wouldn't affect your stream. If they’re harassing you, you can report or block them.

How can I use circles to improve my experience on Google+?

Your circles determine most of what you see in your home stream. Look through your stream and try to get a feel for what’s worth looking at and what’s just filler. Google’s relevance algorithm tries to prioritize what’s interesting to you, but circles have a huge influence on where it finds the raw material. Also, remember for each circle, you can suggest to the algorithm what proportion of content you’d like to see, from none to fewer to standard to more.

+martin shervington suggests this clever Flow System method for managing the content that flows in your stream.

What haven’t we talked about?

We haven’t talked about Communities. Communities are similar to Circles, but focused more on specific topics. When you join a Community, posts from the Community appear in your stream, and posts you make to the Community appear in other Community members’ streams.

Communities is a huge topic, best left to a another post otherwise this one will become a monster.

The Ultimate Hangouts Training Product... Just released
We all know the power of Hangouts and Hangouts on Air. Nothing quite matches the ability these tools offer for building relationships and communicating our message. Now you can easily get the hangout training you need at a very affordable price!

But you know you’ve seen it - Hangouts on Air broadcasts that are so poorly done that you are embarrassed for the people involved. Sometimes people just go for it regardless of how it might damage their reputation and the HOA tool fights back! If you don’t know how to use the tools, then they become the focus instead of the vehicle for delivering your message.

Finally, you can get the Hangout Training You Need
Now you can get the foundational training you need in a structured program on your own schedule. Nine complete training modules including videos and study guides walk you through the materials at your own pace - on your own schedule. We take you from Hangout Basics to Total Hangout Confidence!

Not only is the AllAboutHangouts training product backed by a 30-day money back guarantee, it is crafted and created by The Hangout Helper, +Ronnie Bincer. My background in Software Training and Video SEO makes me uniquely qualified to create the training you need. Since May of 2012 I’ve been training others to master hangouts 1 on 1 or in public & private forums.

The Short Story Behind the Product
This product was birthed from my clients’ needs. I’ve taken the most common hangouts concerns and needs and built the training to address them.

People need an accurate, no hype way to learn how to make the Hangout toolset work properly for them. People have been wanting an up-to-date guide on how to best create Hangouts and HOAs. The format we have chosen allows us to make updates to the training materials on a regular basis so it will updated as hangouts change - and change they do!

Product Launch Special Pricing $100-off, Here's the Link:
http://AllAboutHangouts.com/Launch-Special
We’re offering a special price for you during the launch period so take advantage of it now and tell others where to get the hangout training they need.

Look through the Product Tour and you’ll see video snippets of each module so you’ll know what you’ll be getting. Take a look around, get the product and start down your path to Hangout Confidence. The price is right and the no-risk guarantee makes it easy.

Training You for Hangout Success
If you’ve seen any of my training materials and posts about hangouts you know that accuracy and quality are included. Learn what you need to know today so the HOAs you do tomorrow will make you proud.

Please help spread the word about this labor of love. Thanks!
