Axel Kratel - Google+ - Take control of your G+ stream by re-organizing your circles | GooglePlus Expertise | Scoop.it

Take control of your G+ stream by re-organizing your circles to optimize the use of filters. Unlike Facebook, Google Plus gives you full control over what you see in your main stream. But unless you know how to take advantage of this feature, it might actually be filtering stuff out that you want to see.

The difference between Google+ and Facebook:

The difference between Google+ and Facebook: | GooglePlus Expertise | Scoop.it

The simplest way I can describe the difference between Facebook and Google Plus is that while Facebook helps you keep in touch with the people you already know, Google+ helps you get in touch with the people you want to know.

 

You come to Facebook to find out what’s happening in your friend’s lives. For me, it has done a excellent job of reconnecting me to old friends and letting me better know the new friends I’ve made. Bravo to the Facebook team! Google+, on the other hand, is the place to go if you’re interested in sharing thoughts and ideas, commenting on events, or learning and sharing knowledge about hobbies, sports, entertainment or the arts.

At first, joining Google+ can seem like walking into a cavernous hall devoid of people. However, the truth is that you’re surrounded by millions and to make them appear all you have to do is listen. Listening entails searching for people whom you want to hear and placing them in a “circle” of your choosing: “Friends”, “Family”, “Rugby Fans”, “Model Railroaders”, “Learning to Fly”, etc. Select a circle and a stream of posts from within flows down your screen.

 

Search Google+ for your favourite authors, artists, sports/film/TV stars. Search of your favourite hobby or anything you are interested in then circle those who say things that grab your attention. Check who those individuals have circled or who has circled them. Select liberally and soon you’ll find yourself swimming in streams of thoughts, tips, and news about the very things that interest you. The Facebook entry box asks “What is on your mind?” Google+ not only makes it easy to answer but also makes it even easier for others to find out what you have to say.

 

Give Google+ a try and don’t make the mistake of thinking it’s just another Facebook clone. Nothing could be further from the truth. Google+ and Facebook serve two separate yet complimentary needs.

12 Google+ Marketing Tips From the Pros

12 Google+ Marketing Tips From the Pros | GooglePlus Expertise | Scoop.it
Are you struggling to figure out how to market your business with Google+? Looking for some tips and ideas? You've come to the right place.

 

As a bonus, here's mine!

 

Business Pages owners:

Too many of you haven't given any thought for the tagline on your hovercard!

You have around (or a few less in some cases) 30 characters for the 'tagline' so don't waste them in repeating the company name, never mind the SEO. The name is displayed on the hovercard and the tagline comes right under it.
The funniest tagline I saw just today was "Company x - accessory in..."
- Accessory in what? Murder?
When people are looking at the hovercard, they need to know what the company is about. 2-second-pitch, I call it.

Remember: Good content is the most important step of all, without content you'll get nowhere...
Hope this is helpful, enjoy! :-)
