Google+ combines the best of Google, FaceBook, Twitter, Pinterest, Blogs & LinkedIn in one nifty package. One could say it is Social Media 2.0 redefined, simplified and expanded. It’s a clean, clutter free & uniquely efficient platform which we encourage you to explore. While the learning curve is a bit steeper, as it is mighty serious program, the benefits are well worth the minimal effort to get oriented and learn something new. Helpful Hint, the minute you understand the ingenious concept of circles, you are well on your way. We can promise you one thing, if you try, persevere, and get over the "initial confusion hump", you will love it. It’s a real breath of fresh air.
Some key points on Google+ • Circles make it easy to share the right things with the right people, just like in real life. Now you can share some things with close friends, others with your family, and almost nothing with your boss. Circles let you filter what people are sharing and get notified when important people in your life make a post. So you can catch up with close friends before reading what your neighbor ate for breakfast. Whether they’re for your family, your book club or people around the world who share your interests, Communities give each of your different groups a home base. From foodies to football fanatics, Communities bring people together around passions. Exchange news and ideas, and make new connections in public communities. |VIDEOS | VIDEO: About Google+ Circles | VIDEO: Google+ Communities, A place for whatever you’re into
