What Do You Think of Facebook Plus?

What Do You Think of Facebook Plus? | Google - a Plus for Business | Scoop.it
I know, it’s not called Facebook+, but how could I resist? Zuckerberg christened it Graph Search and chances are you don’t have access to it yet as it will be in beta and will be rolled out slowly over a period of months - kind of like Google+ was.

What are Google+ Communities and How Do They Benefit Your Business?

What are Google+ Communities and How Do They Benefit Your Business? | Google - a Plus for Business | Scoop.it

It’s no secret around the office that I love Google+, and it was with a heavy heart that I recently agreed to hand over our company’s Google+ page to our social media team, since I no longer have time to keep it up on my own.

 

In my opinion, Google+ is genuinely better designed for social engagement, both on a personal and a professional level, so you can imagine how interested I was in yesterday’s announcement of Communities on Google+.

How to prepare a presentation using Evernote Add-Ons

Edmilson Simões's curator insight, November 20, 5:02 AM

Evernote is a great tool, especially for language study. If you attempt to read something and there is a word or sentence that you don’t know use Evernote to clip it and review it later.

You can click on them and they will take you straight to the search, showing posts with the hashtag in question. People who search for a certain topic can do so with or without the # and a keyword: You get slightly different results with either method, I've noticed.

GooglePlus Helper: The importance of your Google+ profile

GooglePlus Helper: The importance of your Google+ profile | Google - a Plus for Business | Scoop.it

Create your profile!

What is the most important thing when joining Google+?
It’s not finding friends or family, though you might think so, especially if you’re used to using Facebook.

Your profile is like your business card:
Fill up your profile’s “About” page with photos and information about who you are, where you work, what your hobbies and interests are.

This will help you to find like-minded people among the Pluserati, i.e. the other G+ users. The more you share about yourself, the better.
