    • This article is intended only for Google Apps users. You're probably a Google Apps user if you're using Google+ with a work or school account. If you're using a personal Google account, see Create a Google+ Community instead. Use communities to start conversations around specific projects, interests, or particular groups. For example, you might start a community for your expanded work group, a class project, a charity drive within your organization, or a joint initiative between your company and outside contributors. Community privacy options You can restrict communities to only your organization (that is, restricted to only your company or school), or you can choose to include people outside your organization. When setting up a community, think about who should be able to find and join the community, who should be able to see the content and members, and whether people need to request to be a member. There are eight types of communities, as described in the tables below. If you restrict the community to your organization: Type of community Who can join Who can see posts and members Who can find community via search* Open within your domain- Anyone in your organization can join Everyone in your organization Everyone in your organization Everyone in your organization Open within your domain- Moderator approval needed to join Anyone in your organization can request to join, but moderators must approve membership. Everyone in your organization Everyone in your organization Create a Google+ Community at work or school
    • Private in your domain - Moderator approval needed to join Anyone in your organization can request to join, but moderators need to approve membership Community members Everyone in your organization Private in your domain - Hide community from searches Only people in your organization who are invited Community members Not shown in search results** *Restricted communities might not yet be searchable in your domain. **The name and photo of a "private in your domain" community that’s hidden from search will still be visible to people in your organization who type in or follow a link to the community’s web address. The name and photo will not be visible outside your organization. If you choose not to have search engines index your community, the community itself won't appear in Google search results. However, your community will still remain visible to anyone in your organization with the URL. Other pages and content (including websites, blogs, and Google products such as Picasa Web) that link to your community can still appear in search results. If someone outside your organization follows a link to your organization, they will see an error and won't be able to view the community. If you don't restrict the community to your organization: Type of community Who can join Who can see posts and members Who can find community via search Public - Anyone can join Everyone Everyone Everyone Public - Moderator approval needed to join Anyone can request to join, but moderators must approve membership Everyone Everyone Private - Let people find through search and request to join Anyone can request to join, but moderators must approve membership Community members Everyone Private - Hide community from searches Only invited people Community members Not shown in search results* *Note: The name and photo of a private community that’s hidden from search will still be visible to people who type in or follow a link to the community’s web address.
    • If you choose not to have search engines index your community, the community itself won't appear in Google search results. However, your community will still remain visible to anyone with the URL. Other pages and content (including websites, blogs, and Google products such as Picasa Web) that link to your community can still appear in search results. 1. Before you create a community, review the privacy options above, and choose which type of community you need. Choose your privacy options carefully, as the only way to change them later is to delete the community and create it again from scratch. 2. On Google+, hover your mouse over the top left to expand the Google+ main navigation. 3. Click the communities icon. 4. Click the Create community button at the top right. 5. Decide whether to restrict your community to people in your organization and click the corresponding box. If the first options you see are Open and Private, it means your organization has chosen to make your communities restricted, by default. If you want to let people outside your organization access your community, and you know that your organization is ok with that, click change at the top of the dialog box. Otherwise, just go on to the next step. 6. Decide who can see members and posts:
    • If your community is restricted to your domain, choose whether it should be Open (anyone in your domain can see members and posts) or Private (only approved members can see members and posts). If your community is not restricted, choose whether it should be Public (anyone can see members and posts) or Private (only approved members can see members and posts). 7. Enter a name for your Community. 8. Pick your final option: If your community is Open or Public, choose whether or not a moderator must approve members. If your community is Private, choose whether to make it findable via search. Members of Private communities must always be approved; if a Private community is not searchable, only invited people can join. 9. Click Create community.
    • Add a photo Your photo will be the first thing people see. Pick a photo that represents the purpose behind your community. Set a community photo in the "Edit Community" section under the Actions menu. Complete the About section The About section is the primary place for new members to learn about your community, so use this opportunity to:  Describe the purpose of your community  Set clear expectations around posts and discussions  Add any additional information or relevant links Invite people to join Follow the steps and share with your circles to invite people to join: 1. While in your community, click Actions to open the drop- down menu. 2. Select Invite people. 3. A share box will open. You can write a message to include with your invitation. 4. Add names, circles, or email addresses of the people you’d like to invite. 5. Click Send. Next steps
    • As a manager of a Google+ community, you can organize discussions by categories, remove offensive content, highlight great posts, and add moderators to help you keep the conversation going. Making changes to your community works best on a desktop computer. Not all edit features are available on mobile devices. Getting started 1. Open Google+and select Communities from the drop-down menu in the upper-left corner. 2. Click the gear icon in the left corner. 3. You’ll see a drop-down menu that helps you invite members, edit basic information in your community, and manage membership settings.  View, search for, and invite people to join your community.  Once someone has confirmed their membership, owners and moderators can manage their membership settings. How to manage a community Invite people
    •  Change basic information like the community’s photo and “About” section.  From here, owners and moderators can also add or remove categories. The categories you add will guide discussions, and help members find the topics they’re most interested in. For example if you have a band community, you might want to have a category for each section type (brass, percussion, strings).  After making changes, click Save in the upper-right corner.  To edit a person’s membership settings, hover over their name and click the arrow. o Owners can:  Add, remove, or ban community members  Add or remove moderators  Pin or remove posts  Add or edit categories o Moderators can:  Add or edit categories Edit Community Manage Members
    •  Pin or remove posts  Add, remove, or ban community members  Remove yourself from the community. You’ll no longer see the group in your communities, and you won’t see its posts in your home stream. Owners and moderators can choose which posts to highlight, and which posts to remove. 1. Open Google+Google+ and select Communities from the drop-down menu in the upper-left corner. 2. Click All Posts in the lower-left corner. 3. Hover over the post you want to edit and click the arrow in the right corner. You’ll see a drop-down menu that lets you pin or remove the post. Leave community Manage Posts
    • o If you pin a post, it will remain at the top your community’s home page until an owner or moderator removes it. You can only pin one post at a time. o If you remove a post, you can also report or ban the member who posted it. 1. Open Google+Google+ and select Communities from the drop-down menu in the upper-left corner. 2. Click All Posts in the lower-left corner. 3. Click the gear icon in the left corner, then click Edit Community. 4. Check the box confirming you’d like to permanently remove the community, then click Delete Community. Delete the community
    •  Check on your community daily, and encourage members to have conversations and share ideas. You can then participate in their conversations by posting, leaving comments, and +1’ing posts.  Try posting different types of content like pictures, questions, or general updates. The posts that get the most comments and +1s will help you learn what your members like best.  When you create a community, write a post to set expectations and welcome new members.  Keep information in your community’s profile up to date so new and prospective members have the latest information.  Add moderators who can help you manage content and share regularly. They can also add new categories to help guide discussions. Tips for managing the community
    • If I post to a public community, does that mean all my friends and followers can see it? No, the posts you share to a public community will not show up in your friends and followers’ Home streams, unless your friends and followers are also members of the same community. Your public community posts will be visible to people who navigate to your profile page unless you have set your settings for them not to appear. Visitors will see text indicating that it was shared to a community. Remember that your private community posts will only be visible to people in those communities, regardless of whether or not you show community posts on your profile. How can I control whether my public community posts appear on my profile page? While in communities: 1. Open Google+. Place your cursor in the top left corner for the Google+ main menu. 2. Select Settings. 3. Scroll to 'Profile'. 4. Check or uncheck the box next to Show your Google+ communities posts on your Google+ profile Frequently asked questions
    • How do Google+ Communities work with Google+ Pages? Google+ Pages and Profiles are a great way to share content and start specific conversations with people interested in your content. Google+ Communities allow people with shared interests to talk to each other by starting new conversations around the interests they share. Additionally, Google+ Pages can participate in Google+ Communities. Pages can create, moderate, join and participate in communities. This makes it easy for Google+ users to join conversations with the brands and organizations they care about. -Can I change my community from public to private, or vice versa? A community’s privacy settings currently can’t be changed once it’s been created. Please pick your desired setting from the start. -How can I control how many community invitations I receive? You can control who is allowed to send you invitations as well as whether you receive invitations via email / mobile. To control who is allowed to send you community invitations, visit the Google settings page and adjust the “Who can send you notifications” control. To turn emails and mobile notifications for community invitations on or off entirely, visit the Google settings page and toggle the “Invites me to a community” setting. Note: Even if you have community invitations enabled via email / mobile, you won’t receive any invites from people you haven’t allowed to notify you.
    • -Are community names unique? If someone else has a “Basketball” community, does that prevent me from making a “Basketball” community? No, names do not have to be unique. -If I moderate a post out of my community, is it deleted? No, the post stays on the profile of the person who authored it. -Why aren’t people seeing my invites? They may not see your invites if they don’t have you in their circles, or if they’ve limited the “Who can send you notifications?” setting. Learn more about who can send you notifications. -How do notifications in communities work? You can turn your community notifications on or off by clicking on the icon on a community’s page. Community members can use notifications to know when new things are shared with their communities. If notifications are On you’ll get a notification by email, on your device, and by the Google toolbar when someone posts something new. Notifications default on in communities where the membership is moderated - that is, private communities, or public communities where you need to ask to join. It's also on by default for any community you create. Notifications are default off in communities where anyone can join - that is, most public communities. They also default off, no matter what, when a community is large.
