Great tips from +Constant Contact on what types of things you can promote via your #socialmedia  channels to help boost holiday sales! 
Creating a Holiday Social Media Calendar

Creating a social media plan starts with (#1) understanding what each network can bring to your business.

For the holidays, you’ll want to focus your efforts on a select group of social media sites that will offer the right features for connecting with your audience.

Once you've (#2) decided which social networks you want to focus on, (#3) it’s time to start laying out your schedule.

To help get the ball rolling, we’ve brainstormed a list of creative post ideas perfect for each of these popular networks (below)!

Use these ideas for inspiration. Choose the ones that make sense for your audience, and add your business’s unique personality to make them your own.

The final piece in your social media plan (#4) will be deciding on a frequency to post on each platform.

Check out the example of what your calendar might look like for December that +Ryan Pinkham put together on our blog:

Is anyone having issues getting +SlideShare to autoplay on +LinkedIn or on a website? 

+Louisa Chan could use some help resolving the issue or a link where she can file a support ticket. 

We've tried the communities on LinkedIn but they haven't been much use.

Any ideas?

Great spot from +Ronnie Bincer on a new Google share button that works across multiple Google properties! 
Share Button added to various Google Online Properties
Just noticed that I have a new share button near my profile pic when on Google+, Google Calendar, & Gmail. Pressing it opens up a Google+ post dialog box from which I can create a post, aka Share Something.

What is currently missing is that same new share button when on YouTube. Come on YouTube aren't you part of the family?

Maybe it will show up there soon. I tested this on a couple different browsers and know that it is not Google Chrome specific, but more tied to the Google Online Properties mentioned and shown below.

I kinda half expected it to be part of any webpage I visited while signed into Google stuff and using Chrome, and then if I pressed the share button it would load that URL into the post, but alas, it doesn't work that way... Yet.

Any more proof needed that Google+ is here to stay?
