Google Plus Tips Guide - Plus Your Business

From www.plusyourbusiness.com

Here are the Google Plus tips list that provides quick informative instructions and process on how to use Google+.
Cendrine Marrouat - cendrinemarrouat.com:

Google+ is an awesome platform, but it has so many options and features that it can be quite overwhelming to figure out.

 

However, thanks to people like Martin Shervington, there is no need to spend hours looking for guides and how-tos. He has done the job for us!

 

Whether you are looking for an easy way to add people to circles from ripples, mute posts, change your photo settings, or disable comments and reshares before publication, you will find answers in his article.

 

What I really like about his list is the fact that all the tips are presented as GIFs — and hence easy to follow.
