In any case, don't worry - you can get into next week's circles by sharing this one*     #teamelite     members - see nearer the end for instructions for the next stage!     #eliteinnercircle     *I have had so many great     #teamelite     engagers that I need three whole circles - why are they     #teamelite     engagers, as opposed to normal engagers? These are the ones who have shared my shared circles - you have close to 1,400 circle sharers here for you to add across these three circles. You should add people in these circles, because they are active engagers and will brighten up your Google Plus experience. I'm not sure you could handle all that Google Plus engagement, so think twice before you do so!My     #teamelite      circles are extensively shared by the top circle sharers on Google Plus, so naturally, membership of     #teamelite     is very exclusive and there is a lot of demand to get in.To get in, and to ensure you stay in     #teamelite     you need to do the following:1. Add me to your circles, if you haven't done so already2. +1 this circle3. Publicly share this circle to public, your circles and extended circles. DO NOT DELETE THIS SHARE OR YOU WILL BE EXCLUDED FROM NEXT WEEK'S   #teamelite   OR POSSIBLY BLACKLISTED FROM   #teamelite   FOR GOOD4. If possible, leave a comment on this circle so I know you have done the three steps above (I say "if possible" as my circle comments more often than not hit the 500 comment limit).5. So I can easily find your share, always publicly share my original shared circle. You'll know if you're sharing the original one because you won't see "Jason Levy originally shared" above here. If you do see it, click on "originally shared" and it will bring you to this post.6. You need to share within 5 days of when the circle was published, as I publish my   #teamelite   circles weekly, and they take me a day or so to curate. Otherwise it may be two weeks before I pick up your share and you get added to the circle again. This is especially true for my   2014-12-20 14:52:58411000

This led to the development of his special theory of relativity. He realized, however, that the principle of relativity could also be extended to gravitational fields, and with his subsequent theory of gravitation in 1916, he published a paper on the general theory of relativity. He continued to deal with problems of statistical mechanics and quantum theory, which led to his explanations of particle theory and the motion of molecules. He also investigated the thermal properties of light which laid the foundation of the photon theory of light. In 1917, Einstein applied the general theory of relativity to model the large-scale structure of the universe.[7]He was visiting the United States when Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933 and, being Jewish, did not go back to Germany, where he had been a professor at the Berlin Academy of Sciences. He settled in the U.S., becoming an American citizen in 1940.[8] On the eve of World War II, he endorsed a letter to President Franklin D. Roosevelt alerting him to the potential development of "extremely powerful bombs of a new type" and recommending that the U.S. begin similar research. This eventually led to what would become the Manhattan Project. Einstein supported defending the Allied forces, but largely denounced the idea of using the newly discovered nuclear fission as a weapon. Later, with the British philosopher Bertrand Russell, Einstein signed the Russell–Einstein Manifesto, which highlighted the danger of nuclear weapons. Einstein was affiliated with the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, until his death in 1955.Einstein published more than 300 scientific papers along with over 150 non-scientific works.[7]2014-12-17 17:39:19500235260266

Daniel Mihai Popescu66,628This circle is called Amalgam :)It is a mixture of new and very old friends. Of course, the Invincible is always present :)I've been a little bit disappointed for losing some guys I've even grown so fond of lately, so fond that they were in my notification circle, something very rare. They left me without a word, but that's not a problem, because everything goes on :)You are not required to do a single thing, I'll mention you in comments, I hope you don't mind :) I do this because the notifications don't work with my account, it's still an enigma, so I can't say that if you receive a notification from me, you're a member in this circle. It's sure you're a member if I mention you. That's one thing.Another thing is that you, the members, don't have to share the circle. I can't pretend from you, what I don't do with your circles. It's somehow a kind of reciprocally membership, which is a signal for others :) You, my circle members, are some of the most precious people on G+, and you have to be sure of that.So, for my followers, especially the new ones, it'll be good for you to add this circle because you'll gain a lot on your stream! #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  2014-12-11 22:33:4849412770151

What a great post by +Karen V Chin!
Thanks a lot Karen!

Day 18 of my #30DaysofThankYou  Challenge: +CircleCount
As a #PYBAcademy  student, just like my Day 17: +Circloscope (http://goo.gl/qGRQmh), +martin shervington introduced  to us Level 2ers CircleCount, a circle statistics analytics tool, which has helped me get a better understand of my Google+ profile in terms of my profile and gender rankings (or influence) within the overall #GooglePlus  community and the U.S. as a whole.

As a marketer who loves going over data and analytics in general, CircleCount, not affiliated with Google, provides me with a ton of information like the average number of +1s, comments or reshares I receive for each of my last 50 posts and the corresponding metrics, charts, graphs, etc. to review. There's so much Google+ data "under the hood" that I'm slowly processing and understanding what all of this means. 

This wonderful tool has also helped me understand other Google+ Profiles, Pages and Communities in comparison.  One of my 2015 goals is to get a better understanding of how to be more proficient with using this awesome circle statistics analytics tool.

Thanks +Chris Macidis of CircleCount for giving me this access and being a part of my Google journey to help me be a better G+ community member.

Do you use CircleCount?

In roundabout 2 hours CircleCount.com will be not available because we are updating our hardware.
This will take a few hours but we'll be (hopefully) back very soon.

Thank you for your patience!

Google+ Update
new way to get to the original post on a reshare

+Mark Traphagen is describing the idea pretty good.
A focus on the discussion is a good choice by Google.

#googleplusupdate   #reshares   #comments  

Why Comments on Google+ Posts Is Now Even More Important

Anyone active on social media wants comments on their posts, but a change on Google+ now rolling out to users makes that even more important.

The change that began rolling out late yesterday affects posts that are reshares of other posts. Previously, the phrase "originally shared" in the display of the original post being reshared linked to that post. Now it is no longer a link.

Instead, there is now only a link to the original post if it had comments. That link now appears at the bottom of the display of the post being reshared (which now is highlighted in a gray box.)

Look at the example below. In this case I had reshared a post by +Antoine Carriere. But Antoine's post had never received any comments. So it has no link below the post.

Why Did Google Make This Change?
My speculation is that Google+ wants to "reward" or promote the version of content that is getting engagement. If the original post has comments, now the reader is alerted to that fact, and clicking on that notice enables one to get to that discussion.

In other words, for Google+, discussion trumps time priority. In Google+'s valuation, a post is valuable not because it was shared first, but because it is generating discussion.

Google+ Communism
This devaluing of "original ownership" has actually always been a part of the very structure of Google+. I observed early on, for example, that a reshare of one's post by a higher authority profile would usually outrank the original in Google Search. (See http://stonet.co/1eZujxB). 

So in the Google+ world battles over who shared something first (as if he or she were "owner" of the share) are meaningless. Google+ is putting the emphasis on community, and community happens where the discussion happens.___Google+ Update

Hangouts Update
smarter, faster, more fun sounds good ;)

h/t +Joshua Berg

Hangouts: now smarter, faster, and a lot more fun

If you’re like me, you want to stay connected with friends and family without technology getting in the way. Hangouts lets you focus on the people you love talking to, so your conversations feel as in-the-moment and natural as they do in real life.

Today we’re updating the Hangouts app for Android to make it easier to express yourself, and have more fun along the way:
    - Like the saying goes, a sticker is worth a thousand words. From penguins to pirates, koalas to cats, 16 new sticker packs (and more to come!) have tons of ways to say what’s on your mind.
    - Give your video calls some extra flair with video filters including sepia, vignette, black & white, and more. Just swipe during a video call to try these new styles. 

We’re also making it easier to start conversations with friends and family:
    - Confirm your phone number so your friends who already have your digits can more easily find and message you in Hangouts.
    - Know when your friends are ready to chat right now with “last seen” timestamps, so you never have to type, “You there?”

Hangouts is also introducing the start of something new -- smart suggestions right in your conversations:
    - When you’re trying to meet up with friends in real life and someone asks, “Where are you?”, Hangouts can now understand what you need and offer to help.  You’ll see a one-tap option to share your location right in the conversation, without you needing to hunt around in a map, drop a pin and send your position. 

Try all the new features by updating the Hangouts app on your Android device  (http://goo.gl/v7FTL - rolling out to the Play Store over the next few hours). Note that “last seen” timestamps will roll out in waves over the next few weeks, so you may not see this feature for all your contacts right away. Today’s updates will also be available on the Hangouts iOS app soon. 

P.S. We’ve added a few other surprises to this Hangouts update, but we’ll let you find them on your own. Woot!___Hangouts Update
smarter, faster, more fun sounds good ;)

What a lovely idea and wish for Christmas.

+Carolyn Curtis' kid just wishes a Christmas Card.
So, if you have a stamp left you can make Evan happy.

Or at least share this post (like we are doing) ;)

#christmas   #gift   #happy  

Ok plus I need your help.
I have a kid that has asked for nothing but Christmas cards for Christmas. This can be mail art as well. He has placed a world map on his wall and plans to place a marker on each spot he has received mail from and I would like to help him. If you can send a card or piece of mail art I would appreciate it. You are also more than welcome to share this. 
Please send cards to

Pin a post to the top of your profile or page

Sounds like a cool new feature here on Google+!
Which post will you pin on your profile?

#googleplusupdate #pinapost

New to Google+: Pinned posts for profiles and pages

People often have posts that they want to make sure get seen when someone visits their profile, like a great nature shot from a recent family trip. Businesses also have content they want to highlight such as photos of a new product or a trailer for an upcoming movie.

Starting today, you can pin a post to the top of your profile or page. When someone visits your page, they’ll see the pinned content first above the rest of your posts. 

To pin a post, open the drop down menu on any public post when viewing the posts tab of your profile or page on a desktop browser.  Desktop and Android users will see your pinned posts, with iOS support coming soon. 

Check out this example of a pinned poll from the +Brooklyn Nets

Thoughts on Google+

You have seen probably the article of +Chris Messina where he is writing about his thoughts on Google+.

This post by +Gideon Rosenblatt led to an excellent discussion in the comments. 

Both (the article and the comments) are worth to read!
Check it out if you can spare a few minutes!

#googleplus   #discussion  

I'm not sure I'd explain it the way that +Chris Messina does here, but I think he's right to question what's going on with Google+ these days. I do. 

Here's Chris' conclusion: 
Whereas Pinterest helps you express your aspirational self, Google pigeonholes you into what you already are, based on your previous search activity. This is where improving the data that Google has about you — in turn trusting Google as a steward of that data—changes the nature of the conversation by making it less about “privacy” and more about empowerment. While some people will freak out (as they always do), this would be a bold, productive, future-forward direction to take.

I think he's hitting on something here, but I would describe it as helping people to play a more active role in managing not just their interest graph, but their shared interest graph. 

Let's face it. Facebook grabbed the social graph that matters - the one that connects us to our existing friends and family. That was a lost battle day-one for Google. Instead, it should have been 1000% focused on helping people to build a rich information network around the things we care most about - our interest graph - and then to use that interest graph to connect us with new people who share those interests with us - our "shared interest graph."

That strategy would have completely supported the company's search business and built up on its strengths and its mission to to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.

In one of +Dave Besbris' most recent interviews, it seemed as though I was hearing something that mapped more to this kind of focus, but the reality, the harsh reality, is that innovation on Google+ has pretty much crawled to a snail's pace of late. And that is a real shame. There is so much value here, and so much potential that has yet to be unlocked. ___Thoughts on Google+

Exactly one year ago we have posted this description of the Google+ Sign In.

The whole description is still valid and we are happy that we have seen more than 23,000 new persons on CircleCount in this last year.

This post is btw one of our 5 posts with the most views.
An information you can get pretty easily with one of our coming features. So stay tuned ;)

#circlecount #signin #tbt

The Google+ Sign In
http://www.circlecount.com/freelogin/

Google+ is offering a "Sign In Button" that can be used on 3rd party websites and apps to authenticate a user.
If you are interested on how to use this button in your project you should check the Google+ Developer Pages: https://developers.google.com/+/web/signin/

We would like to explain here the Sign In from the view of the user and describe the main points regarding your privacy and what kind of access you give the app.

1.) Give access to your circles while using the Google+ Sign In
General: In the Sign In popup/window of Google+ you can choose which circles you want to show to the 3rd party app. By choosing circles the app will be able to get a list of the persons/pages in this list but not the names of the circles or the number of circles a person/page is included. It is just a list of id's that are in at least one of the circles you have chosen.
CircleCount: You don't need to choose any circles here if you don't want to. The only features that are using these information on CircleCount are so far:
► the Map of your Circles (http://www.circlecount.com/mycirclesmap/)
► the birthday list (http://www.circlecount.com/mybirthdays/) and 
► "Your Google+ Elements" (http://www.circlecount.com/myelements/) 
But you have a button to update these information on the pages of these features, so that you can unselect all circles on your first Sign In and check out CircleCount without showing us any of your circles. It's your choice!

2.) Allow people to know you use this app
General/CircleCount: Here you can choose the visibility of the app / CircleCount on your profile page. You can see the full list of apps you have signed in to with Google+ on this page https://plus.google.com/apps where you can also change the visibility or disconnect from this app.

3.) General Sign In
CircleCount: On CircleCount we are using the Google+ Sign In to replace a user registration. You don't need to create a CircleCount profile, you have it as soon as you have a Google+ profile.
With the Sign In you are telling us who you are, so that we can show you 
► your dashboard (http://www.circlecount.com/dashboard/)
► your follower map (http://www.circlecount.com/mymap/)
► your favorite posts (http://www.circlecount.com/favposts/)
► your custom ranking using the criteria you define (http://www.circlecount.com/myranking/) and 
► many more features that are available with a free Sign In

There is no official / publicly available Google+ API that allows apps to post in your name.
There are the interactive posts (http://goo.gl/0v9yZ7) which can be used within an app as a button. You will have to click this button and choose the circles/persons you want to share an interactive post with. Default setting is that the post will be private.
You can find such interactive posts on CircleCount
► on our A vs. B pages (http://beamto.net/26v8tcaz/)
► on your follower map (http://www.circlecount.com/mymap/)
► on our polls (http://www.circlecount.com/poll/2)

There are also the app activities (http://goo.gl/je4L76) which can be generated automatically by the app without that the user has to do anything. These app activities can be found here (https://plus.google.com/apps/activities) and can be shared, but you still need to go to this page and choose an app activity to share it publicly or with your circles. 
CircleCount is generating such entries when 
► you sign in, so that you can get a good overview of when you have logged in on CircleCount
► you add a tag to a person/page (here is the complete list of tags on CircleCount: http://www.circlecount.com/addtag/)

If you have any questions please comment on this post. We will try to answer them and update the post.

This post is based on a question of +Gail Pasternack (http://goo.gl/2sIdNr) in the Communitiy of +SEOWiSE (http://goo.gl/odt40K). Thanks also to +John Ellis and +Atilla Vekony

We hope that this problem is fixed soon, but we can only hope, since it looks like it is an issue on Google side.

In this case $plus->activities->listActivities() was called in php.

We haven't changed anything (knowingly) regarding how the API calls are done.

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."

Read it all on +Social Media Examiner http://www.socialmediaexaminer.com/build-powerful-alliances-google-plus/

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.

That's how this great article about Google+ and passions starts.

You have probably seen it already (761 reshares + this one).

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
+Neila Rey:... more »

Nice to see +OMG! Ubuntu! and +matthew rappaport in the Top 10 with "only" 52k / 200k followers.
The others have 500k followers (+Neila Rey) or much more with at least 2.5m followers.

What do you think, are polls leading to more activity on Google+?

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+.

On this page (http://www.circlecount.com/ellofriends/) you can choose the circles you want to check and we will tell you which profiles we have already found on Ello.
With direct links to their profiles.

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.

Time to give up on g+, I guess ;-)___Never give up on Google

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.
