The Psychology of Engaging on Google+ - (Part 1 of 3)

The Psychology of Engaging on Google+ - (Part 1 of 3) | The human factor | Scoop.it

Do you engage, or are you a member of the audience? And the cheeky concept of getting ‘shareshagged’…

If no one +1s, comments, shares one’s content then Google+ may well seem a very quiet and lonely place. Google+ is, however, a place full of engagers. Seeing as myself and many other people regularly publish circles with people who are ‘engagers’ on Google+, I thought it may be worth considering what the word means…

The Psychology of Connecting on Google+ (Part 3 of 3)

The Psychology of Connecting on Google+ (Part 3 of 3) | The human factor | Scoop.it

When we ‘engage’ on Google+ through +1s, comments, shares, chat, hangouts etc, with people to whom we ‘relate’ we ‘connect’ further with them. When these connections are increasingly relaying messages in a positive and reaffirming nature, we will tend to enjoy the experience more and more. This is why the culture to which we create and all belong is so important. The concept of commoogling – creating an increasingly collaborative culture – is just one way of bringing people together and allows them to connect with people who also share the same values. This is when hanging out really ups the level of it all.
I look forward to engaging, relating and connecting with you on Google+ even more in the future!

Perhaps we should send some Chimps to congress - “This study provides the first evidence that one of our closest primate relatives, the chimpanzees, not only intentionally coordinate actions with each other but that they even understand the necessity to help a partner performing her role in order to achieve the common goal."
