+Christine DeGraff Every time I try to use it, I get so frustrated that I just give up. You have been here even longer than I, and it's terribly sad to see the talent that have moved on. I think I'm at the point of just deleting my account and moving on.

Vote for Google+ Collections Support in Buffer!

Since +Buffer just recently released the ability to share to +Google+ profiles, I think it would be awesome if they took it one step further and supported Collections.

Help make this a reality by voting here:
https://buffer.uservoice.com/forums/257855-feedback-and-ideas/suggestions/10792152-google-collections

Why is it so important that Collections are supported?

Google is making some big bets on its Collections feature. Over the past year they've made sure that it is successful by giving Collections posts a boost in the Home feed above and before Public posts. At +Steady Demand we've tested this to be true: Collections posts get far greater reach and drive far more follower growth than posts that are just Public.

So to all my social media manager friends out there who both USE +Buffer and understand the power of best Google+ practices, please vote for that feature!

#socialmedia #tools #socialmediamanagement
Please create the option to post directly to a Google+ collection. This feature is available in Friendsplus.me which is an independent developer so it can't be too hard to do for the happiness engineers at Buffer...

The math just isn't working out for me on why 11,000 Olympiads need 450,000 condoms....

Let's assume all 11,000 of them will be there for 20 days and don't have sex with each other (in which case they would only need one per couple) and that they have sex twice per day. That's 11,000x20x2.

So why did they stock 10,000 extra condoms??????

This little boy needs a name! What do you think? Comment on the original post please :D
 
One of our readers just got a new #puppy... He's so new he still has a tag on him!

Just kidding! That's the tag on his new bed. He is an 11-week old #pitbull with #NoName yet.

We think this little guy needs a name! His #petparents are looking for suggestions. What do you think his name should be?

This little guy is so adorable and we hope he doesn't have to deal with the typical stereotypes that often surround Pit Bulls. In fact, according to +Petfinder, the MYTH that Pit Bulls are all inherently vicious is just not true. Each dog should be evaluated on their own merits, not by their breed. A corollary truth is that there truly are no bad dogs, only bad people who raise bad dogs. Unless a Pit Bull has been poorly bred or purposefully trained to attack humans, they generally love people. They are, in fact, one of the most loving, loyal, friendly and dedicated companions you can have. (http://gplnk.us/2hbJWwg)

Since we know the new owners of this cute little pup, we can hopefully convince them to share photos with us throughout his life... so we can share them with you as well.

But, first things first, he needs a name! Please post your suggestions in the comments below.

Hey USA Peeps
I'm working on a little project and I need to crowdsource a little help. If you would like to help, just let me know if you attend a restaurant week in your town (or in any town), what the name of it is (or what town - i can look it up), and your 2-3 sentence review of it. I will be quoting you if you comment.

Thanks in advance!!!

Building a New House For Santa

Where I live, this man walks the streets daily with a Santa hat or a Dr Suess hat on, headphones in, just bebopping all over the place.

This is Harry Buie, he has lived in that house behind him for 59yrs, he was literally born inside the home. It is falling apart and the Town determined it was uninhabitable.

We need approximately $50k to build him a 1br/1ba cottage to finish out his days in. Any and all donations matter tremendously.

Thanks in advance, and if you can't give, please at least share :-) 
One day walking home from school, little Evie made the remark..."I wish someone would fix Santa's house". And, a child's wish has brought a community together. The Pleasure Island community and 5 local contractors have came together to build Harry (Santa) a brand new 1 bedroom/1 bath 500 sq....

I started this 3 part #OnlineMarketing series exactly 3 years, 3 months, and 17 days ago... just finished it :D
Once you have traffic to your site and are successfully converting your visitors, it is time to focus on "retention" or deepening the relationship.

I am currently co-hosting two Hangouts On Air (HOAs) here on Google Plus. They are:

Ronnie Bincer and I have teamed up to co-host Marketing Tools N' Techniques (aka #TNTBootcamp), a new Live HOA series #TNTBootcamp on the 3rd Mondays each month at 2:30pm EST. 

I have several pages and communities but the one I enjoy the most is My Music Hangout - that's where I go to share and listen to music with cool peeps. I am a huge fan of heavy metal, alternative and southern rock: (in no particular order) Metallica, U2, Eminem, Muse, Linkin Park, The Beatles and a dozen or so other artists plus a bunch more randomness! Random is the word of the day when it describes my taste in music! Click here to join my music community!
