Our online media is so fragmented it's easy to be inconsistent. With G+ it's also easier than ever to link our past work to where we're most active today.
Bottom line: You need to learn G+.

In this digital age of connection and resonance, we've all got valuable, individualistic content to work with.
Consider ALL your online social networks as automatically updating sources of information about your personal and business contacts.
What will happen in your online community in 2014 if you start using social platforms like a web-wide contact book?
Thinking about who I’d want to hear from on the topic of global women entrepreneurship, started a list of women whose thinking, feats and contributions in those three colliding spheres happen to bowl me over, and have, for YEARS.
Here's one bountiful way into the chaos that will help you find people and accounts sharing content you're going to want to see in your timelines all across the web: Twitter chats.
If you like what you see and want to be sure not to miss what these intriguing accounts are sharing, look up these same people and accounts and follow them on LinkedIn and Facebook and Pinterest and Slideshare and wherever else you’re active online.
thanks for the reminer, had gotten out of the habit. Agree w your points wholeheartedly
Culture hacker and ‘social alchemist’ Seb Paquet noted this phenomenon: in an explosion of connection, too few of us have found any belonging. I believe that’s exactly what happens when we connect without meaning.

When you find yourself looking for a simple strategy to connect all your important people…ask yourself this: Is your plan simple for you, the community builder? Or is it simple for the community waiting to happen?
You are a servant leader when you help the people in your life develop and improve. That’s you…you can be a cocreator of your community by bringing value to the group in the form of practical, useful, transformative tools.
The entrepreneur-turned-venture capitalist Mark Suster tweeted this post Why I Unfollowed You On Twitter by Ian Rogers of Topspin. “I want Twitter to be for news and information from trusted sources.
It’s exactly what I’ve been saying for years: curate your various social web networks to deliver value.
Cut the paper cord — toss your business card collection. You know you have one, and it’s not helping you at all.
Get that inert stack of biz cards on your desk. You’re hoarding them to contact those folks when the need arises, or when all your ducks are in a row, or something. You’re waiting for the day the card will work.

We're moving the conversation around our content elsewhere (most importantly, to your own blog), and see how that works ...
#copyblogger gets rid of comments -- for all the reasons i've been noting for years. the #community and the #conversation has become distributed across the web, and takes place where people are (like FB and Twitter)
When you share not-quite-there-yet ideas and invite us to co-create with you, you attract likeminded people and involve them in your journey.
What might happen if you consider all that material as fodder for what you’re doing now, and what you want to do next? What if it’s all part of your process?
Technology makes your global networking possible but the results you want come from something more than the tools you use.
Most of us have never built a #global #network before. We’ve never had the vast capability that we now have thanks to #social technologies. No wonder we don’t know what we’re doing. My latest for Curatti: Editors of Chaos.
If you’re just getting started with social networking, here’s a hard-earned lesson many veteran online networkers are still coming to terms with. Don’t follow back on social networks, just because. Establish an intentional follow policy.
Your #followpolicy can make the difference between being bored by your timeline or enchanted. Repelled, or engaged. It can make the difference between feeling like this whole #digitallife thing is a terrible waste of time and energy, or the best thing that has ever happened to you, your mindset, your life and your work.
Pleased to be quoted in last night’s #GetRealChat 2014 Social Trends with IBMConnect Speakers. Take a peek at the Storify slides from this on-fire tweet chat.
Take a look at your timelines. They are the fruit of your curation efforts. You selected who you follow. Do the people and accounts you follow challenge you (in a good way)? No? Don’t be afraid to start culling.
Your social networks are your window onto the world, and a lens on your market, I write in my first post in a new series at Curatti: Editors Of Chaos.
On a regular basis at Curatti I’m going to be unpacking the mysteries of online community, and exploring how to organically grow a network filled with people who are all deriving value from their connection.
In this post I go on to explain that you determine how wide your window is, and how focused the lens. Ultimately, your online connections will color your day, slant your view, and propel your actions.
With the web’s power, reach, and endurance, we’re all digital strategists now. And if we go online (or don’t go online!) disregarding this fact, we miss the boat, and the point.
I’m proposing a methodology to work in community on our own goals, with a stronger network as a result. A way we can all be cocreators of an effective network using the backbone of the social web.
"We are peers and colleagues and friends and acquaintances — and we are siloed in what we know, what we are trying to do, how we do it, and with whom. We don’t fully consider or know how to tap the resource we represent to each other." ~ Anastasia Ashman
Question: I’m mentally exhausted from my social media responsibilities. I can’t keep up, so I’m taking a break. When I return, what can I do differently with
so great to be able to contribute this month's "Ask the Expert" answer -- drawing on GlobalNiche methods and approaches -- for an 11-year old newsletter for 40k professional services pros...
Among the reasons people don’t invest in their online presence, that’s one I hear from a lot of people. The people around them aren’t doing it. (They might be mistaken about this perception, too, since if you’re not online in expansive ways you probably won’t be able to tell if other people are.)
Which of these other excuses sound familiar to you?

The foundation of her formula rests in the fact that each of us already has what we need to be successful and we can use it wherever we are."
Personal branding expert in Japan Peter Sterlacci writes: ” As a long-term expat, she had to learn from the ground up how to build a global life and work solutions to survive. Her years of experience led to the creation of a holistic approach in building one’s global niche, or what she also calls a ‘global personal brand’. Her formula is simply: Personal Discovery + Professional Expression = Your Global Niche. The foundation of her formula rests in the fact that each of us already has what we need to be successful and we can use it wherever we are."
