  • I need to quicky introduce you to some of the products that impact and effect G+
    They all work together, so it’s sort of hard to talk about G+ without mentioning the others.
  • Receive AND share based on interests, passions, locations,
    I call this Contextual Sharing & Contextual Privacy
  • You can choose to organize your circles however you’d like. I have organized mine by place as well as interests, organizations.
    Last one is different from Facebook and Twitter.
    Empty circles
    Circles can be extremely small.
    Very consistent, not always changing.
    We’ll talk about “Shout” a little later.
  • We’ll talk later about search benefits, but the thing I really want to impress upon you is pros and cons of “public”
  • Extended Circles, probably most confusing “Friends of friends”
  • Probably most confusing.
    “you set the circles you want included in your circles”
  • Comments are editable and deletable
    Business pages can comment on their own content
    @mention someone
  • Hashtags
    Google suggests hashtags based on searches and trends
  • BTW: Business Pages can interact by +1ing too
    +1 the poster and the people who the post was shred with see it Creator resceicves notification.
    +1 a post and ppl in your extended circles who also have you in circles may see this “activity update” in their streams.
    +1 are more than likes
  • 52,000+ Google Communities
    Interests, passions, help
  • Blocking
    Posting to multiple communities is considered “spammy”
  • Circles are also import
  • Google is using +1, commenting, following as part of it’s endorsements.
    Your endorsements are ONLY shown to people you’ve chosen to share information with. And it only applies to ads.
    Privacy: You can remove this feature from your profile by signing on to your account go to SHARED ENDORSEMENTS and UNCHECK the box.
  • social signals - +1, likes, shares, back links (varying articles)
  • Set up “Local Business or Place”
    Includes maps and local hours
    Verification postcard or phone call
    Insights =
    views & actions last 7 days
    including driving directions from Google Maps
  • SMCHI business page, who’s got us in circles
