  • 5. CU Shine Social Media Series May 21, 2014 ! VOCABULARY: GOOGLE+     ! ! +1: Like something? +1 it! !Circle: Circles are clusters of a user's friends on Google+, meaning you can group certain people you choose to connect with on your Google+ into a certain Circle--such as colleagues, college connections, family, etc. When you want to share content with only these individuals, you include that specific Circle in your post's sharing options. !Communities: A group of people with common interests. Google+ communities can be public or private and allow for rich conversations. Posts made in Communities are automatically emailed to each member within the community. !Hangouts: A Hangout is an instant message (chat) and video service on Google+ that allows you to video chat with other Google+ users. Video Hangouts allow for up to 10 Google+ users at a time. You can name these chats, watch YouTube videos during them, open a Google Doc with colleagues, and much more. !Hashtag: A word or string of characters that starts with a number sign (#). Identical hashtags are grouped together in a search thread. !Pages: Pages are created and managed by businesses. Follow business pages to see their posts on your home wall. !Post: Anything answering the question "What's on your mind?” !+Reply: The +reply (or @reply) means a Google+ tag that is directed to another user in a post or reply. !Stream: Similar to Facebook news updates but you can see updates for particular circles rather than updates for everyone at once. !
