If you're new to Google+, or want to know more about using Google+, this article will help you get the most from Google+!

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, August 30, 2013 3:37 AM

A useful video tutorial here, just over 16 minutes long. It runs through the basics of using Google drive and how you can use it to collaborate with others. It also touches on Google Hangout.

 

I use Google Drive with my students as a writing space because I teach English via Skype. It suits our needs perfectly. Students create several folders e.g. some are homework spaces; collaborative areas such as wikis; creative writing pages and as a virtual space that we can jump into during the lesson to work on activities. It works for us. As a teacher I can dip into shared spaces at any time and guide and support learning which is a real advantage.

flea palmer's curator insight, August 30, 2013 6:56 AM

This is a really thorough tutorial and very timely as I'm currently exploring using Google Drive with students. Our dispersed team of Learning Technologists already use it for collaboration but there is not much use as yet by our academics and students. The ability to be able to integrate Drive with Google Hangouts is really powerful and has the potential to be a great tool for supporting Distance Learning.

Social Media Best Practices for Infographics

Social Media Best Practices for Infographics | Social Networker | Scoop.it

Sharing your infographic that’s hosted on your website/blog and engaging the social sharing potential is key to maximizing the work you put in to creating your infographics.  

Each social network has different image display requirements.

For example, tall infographics do not present well on Facebook. Facebook outlines horizontal images and a ratio of 1200 w x 627 h, meaning you may need to create some sharing images to drive social viewers to the main infographic.


The team at Lemonly put together a great infographic covering keys for social sharing on:

It Is Really Awkward And Sweet When 20 Complete Strangers Kiss On Camera

It Is Really Awkward And Sweet When 20 Complete Strangers Kiss On Camera | Social Networker | Scoop.it
John Thomas's insight:
Something beautiful happens when total strangers are asked to kiss. In the short film First Kiss, director Tatia Pilieva asks 20 daring individuals, who have never laid eyes on each other, to smooch before the camera. It's part of the new marketing campaign for clothing company Wren Studio. The participants, mostly friends of Pilieva and Wren CEO Melissa Coker, are dressed in clothes from the 2014 fall collection. The video delighted many millions with its awkward charm, seeing strangers paired off and working up the courage to kiss for the first time. "They were chosen based on how they looked aesthetically together beforehand," says Coker. "No one knew who they would be paired with until they showed up at the studio. The only caveat was that we had to ensure they had never met before." First Kiss is a clever social experiment in the awkwardness of intimacy, but it also evokes that long-forgotten teenage excitement of treading undiscovered territory. There are lots of awkward giggles, but perhaps most astonishing, is how easily a kiss creates a visceral bond between two people who barely know each other's names.

John Thomas's insight:

United States Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) was nearly struck by a speeding train during a press conference on Friday — at a conference about commuter safety, no less.

The conference, which was held on a Metro-North train platform in Milford, Conn., was meant to draw attention to an overhaul in Metro-North safety. But it ended up being a dangerous situation itself.  With his back to the tracks, Blumenthal said, "Safety, as you know, is paramount..." just as an Amtrak train sped through the station.

Rufous hummingbird Joins The Rest Of The Species In Wishing You A Happy Earth Day

Rufous hummingbird Joins The Rest Of The Species In Wishing You A Happy Earth Day | Social Networker | Scoop.it
John Thomas's insight:

Today April 22, 2014 Google has come up with a very colourful and animated Doodle to mark the World Earth Day. The doodle begins with an animation of a rufous hummingbird hovering over flowers with mouseover text "The Rufous Hummingbird wishes you a happy Earth Day 2014!"  

Six different animated doodles depicting different species – Rufous humming bird, Japanese Macaque, Veiled chameleon, Moon jellyfish, Puffer fish and Dung beetle can be found on the google home page. Each doodle shows one animal species and the environment they live, probably suggesting that we need to maintain the environment for the species to exist.

With the advent of internet and web technologies, storytelling has got some new and wider dimensions. The journey of storytelling from its early beginnings to its actual state is the subject of this wonderful graphic below.

70 Online Tools & Services You Should At Least Know Exist - BloggerJet

70 Online Tools & Services You Should At Least Know Exist - BloggerJet | Social Networker | Scoop.it
Have you heard of “compulsive hoarding“? This is when your apartment is full of garbage, because you’re convinced you may need every single piece of it someday.

Now here’s the thing. I bet many of you guys are suffering from “compulsive online hoarding” (a term made up by myself) – this is when you bookmark more stuff than you actually can read/check.
Where am I going with this? Give me a few more sentences to explain.
The Things You Bookmark
Let’s talk about the things you bookmark. I think all of them fall into three main categories:

“To Read Later” Bookmarks – you see a cool article (maybe even this one), but now is not the perfect timing to read it. So you save it to come back to it later.
“Hotkey Stuff” Bookmarks – there is a number of websites and online services that you use daily. It’s handy to bookmark them so that you could open them with just one click when needed.
“I-May-Need-That-Someday” Bookmarks – those are the pages/services/tools that are of no use for you right now, but you can clearly see they are highly valuable and there’s a chance you may desperately need them in future. Now that’s the “online hoarding” I’m referring to.

The reason why I find “I-May-Need-That-Someday” bookmarks fascinating is because they actually WORK!
It happened to me quite a few times when I had to solve some problem and I thought: “Wait, I think I’ve seen a handy tool that can do it for me.”
Think of it as loading your brain with “there’s a tool for that” triggers and once something activates this trigger you don’t have to remember the name of the tool or its URL, you just have to look for it in your bookmarks.
That’s where the “You Should At Least Know Exist” part of my headline comes from.
So today I want to load your brain with 70 “there’s a tool for that” triggers and a single place to come back to recall them (this article of course).
the load will go smoothly, I promise ;)
I’ve tried to pick mostly uncommon tools, but then decided to throw in some famous tools as well for chances are some people may not know about them.
Ready?

Competitor Research Tools
MixRank ( http://mixrank.com/ ) – this is a nice service for researching ads of your competitors. These guys track thousands of advertisements and even give estimates on how they perform. In case you’re planning to advertise your business, you would probably be interested to know what’s going on in your niche.
WhatRunsWhere ( http://www.whatrunswhere.com/ ) – I guess it’s pretty similar to Mixrank. Don’t really know which of them is actually better.
SpyFu ( http://www.spyfu.com/ ) – another competitor research tool. But this time it checks for the most profitable keywords of your competitors.
Semrush ( http://www.semrush.com/ ) – tons of data to analyse and act upon.
Analytics Tools
Wistia ( http://wistia.com/ ) – absolutely amazing video analytics platform. If you’re creating videos for your website, there’s absolutely no point of using YouTube to host them. With Wistia you’ll get tons of stats on how your videos perform.
Mixpanel ( https://mixpanel.com ) – events-based analytics platform. Google Analytics lets you track events as well, but Mixpanel is much more convenient in working with such data.
Woopra ( https://www.woopra.com/ ) – another analytics platform. This time based on customer behaviour. I guess it’s useful in case you have some kind of a product and you need to know how exactly people use it.
KissMertics ( https://www.kissmetrics.com/ ) – an awesome analytics platform with tons of customization options. If you’re a fan of Lean Analytics you should try this out.
Clicky ( http://clicky.com/ ) – everyone is freaking tired of Google Analytics lately. Clicky is one of the best alternatives I know.
Analytics URL Builder ( http://gaconfig.com/google-analytics-url-builder/ ) – have issues with building the right URLs for your campaigns? Try this little tool.
Social Media Tools
SnapBird ( http://snapbird.org/ ) – awesome search that surprisingly has lots of benefits over default Twitter search.
Triberr ( http://triberr.com/ ) – bloggers gather in tribes and commit to tweeting articles from each other. This tool automates all the process.
HootSuite ( https://hootsuite.com ) – lets you create a very sleek dashbord to track all your social media profiles in one place. I use it for Twitter and it’s super handy!
Tweriod ( http://www.tweriod.com/ ) – this tool will analyze your twitter accou…

30 Mind Blowing Posters Against Travel Restrictions For HIV Affected People

30 Mind Blowing Posters Against Travel Restrictions For HIV Affected People | Social Networker | Scoop.it

Since the beginning of the HIV epidemic, governments and the private sector have implemented travel restrictions with regard to HIV positive people wishing to enter or remain in a country for a short stay (e.g. business, personal visits, tourism) or for longer periods (e.g. asylum, employment, immigration, refugee resettlement, or study). According to data collected by the European AIDS Treatment Group, a total of 74 countries have some form of HIV-specific travel restrictions, 12 of which ban HIV positive people from entering for any reason or length of time. The most common reasons used are to protect public health and to avoid possible costs associated with care, support and treatment of people living with HIV. 

Whatever the reason, HIV-related travel restrictions raise fundamental issues regarding the human rights of non-discrimination and freedom of movement of people living with HIV in today’s highly mobile world.

Living Beyond Limits: Amy Purdy Who Lost Both Her Legs At 19 Now Stands Up On Her Feet To Inspire Millions To Not Give Up On Their Dreams | Social Networker | Scoop.it
John Thomas's insight:

Amy Purdy talks about the power of imagination. She explains how our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but by the choices we make. Imagination allows us to break down borders, to move beyond our circumstances, to create and constantly progress.

Amy Purdy has been through hardships that most of us will never face -- or can even fathom. But what makes her story so incredible is not that fact that she lived a "normal" childhood and spent her high school years as a passionate artist and snowboarder, then traumatically lost both her legs at age 19, but how she has persevered, taking implausible challenges and rising above them.
