Hi Conrad - I'm busy tomorrow now. I'm really disappointed not to be able to make it. Im giving a talk to food producers in Glasgow for Scotland Food and Drink.

Wins - I posted an image on G+ in a travel group and had 80 +1's in less than 12 hours.

Look familiar?
 
Technology is frequently changing...
how we are introduced to the changes matters!

Take a look at this video that pokes fun at some of the frequent updates on Facebook. We get lots of subtle changes over here on Google+ as well, but I think that the way Google+ rolls them out tends to be a bit less traumatic.

What do you think?
How do you deal with the frequent updates to the tools you use?
Do you think we will be seeing some new updates come our way on G+ soon because Google I/O is just around the corner?

OK This is cool. You can reply to G+ messages right in the Gmail conversation view. and if you hit ? you get a list of keyboard shortcuts. Who knew! via +Allan Lloyds

Third member here! David do you want to explain in a post what the purpose of this community is? I'll follow suit with a post on the meetup page. I'm just about to announce the next meetup for the 21st of March

Here +Conrad Rossouw 

______________
Google recently introduced Google+ 'Communities'.

They are good for people who want to promote themselves and their web presence and get them seen by the search engines.

You might be wondering why I didn't recommend Facebook Groups.

The reason is that Google+ Communities are better than Facebook Groups for people like us because Facebook is a walled garden for the search engines. And that is a wasted opportunity.

After talking to Conrad, I have taken the first step and set up a Google+ community.  

I've called it EdSocial and it's here:

https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/117524286036888831345

It's set up as public (so we get the SEO benefit) but moderator approval needed to join (which makes sure we know who's posting in the community).

Once we are up and running, if you want to be an admin moderator, just let me know.

If you don't already have a Gmail account,  you'll need to set one up. You'll see the way to do that when you click the link above. It will ask you for your Gmail account, and if you don't have one, it says 'Don't have an account? Sign Up'

It's easy to do and there are advantages to doing it.

One big advantage is that once you set up your own Google+ profile, you can link from that and set up 'rel=author' on your website so that Google knows that it's you that is writing your articles on your website.

And if Google identifies you as someone who knows what they are talking about on a topic, the Google will be more likely to display your results higher up in searches.

I'm going to put some links to some articles on the Community board. There about how to get the best out of Google+ etc.

And I'll keep posting stuff that I think is useful.

We can all notify the community when we have posted a new article, so we help each other spread the word about what we are doing.
