5 CREATIVE WAYS OF USING GOOGLE PLUS
1. Bookmarking websites
You can save bookmarks and organize them really simple with google plus and have them anywere and i'm not talking about +1-ing websites.
You can do that too, but if you don't want other people to see your bookmarks and you also want to organize them, there's a better way.
Just make an new circle. This will be an empty circle and here you will share links with yourself. Nobody will see what your sharing, and you can name it the way you want.
For example... food recipies. Now just make more empty circles for every interest that you have. They will serve you like bookmark folders.
When you'll want to go back to your it news links or anything else, you will look in that circle. Simple, right? Plus you'll have the bookmarks anywhere, and you will be able to share them with your friends by adding them to that circle.
2. Blogging platform
Why Google+ Can Be Used for Blogging Purposes:
a. It’s Fast - you can post real fast
b. It’s Formattable - on Google+, you can bold, italic or strikethrough your text anytime you want
Wrap up your text with asterisks (*) for bold, underscores (_) for italic and hyphens (-) for strikethrough. And there you are! Your text has been nicely formatted.
For a blog post, at least bold and italic are important formatting options. So, in this case, Facebook is not an option.
c. It’s SEO’d - it’s already optimized for Search Engine especially Google.Google+ posts will be more visible on Google search results for Google’s very own interest.
So, right from the start, you know that you’re getting indexed! It’s a big point in my opinion.
d. It’s Reshareable - This comes in handy for those that are already on Google+. If they like it enough, they can actually reshare it on their circles (and with a chrome extension, on any social networking site including Facebook and Twitter). This eventually drives you more traffic without any doubt.
3. Celebrating Birthdays
You are having birthday of your kid and some of family members are not around. Its an inexplicable emotional feeling to see your loved one’s face at his/her birthday.
Through Google+ Hangouts other members who are not present and are on different places, can enjoy those moments of celebration.
4. Client Meetup Over Hangouts
Skype is a great tool to have professional remote meetings but it has its own limitations in terms of group meetings. Try Google Plus Hangout for a client meetup.
You can feel it a bit unprofessional but its OK after all you are there to work and that too more efficiently, not to show off.
5. Recruitment Interviews On Hangouts
This is something that could be interesting for some. In those cases where applicant is in another city and for interview he has to travel long or you have to organize a group discussion of 8-9 people to get an idea about who is best among them, you can use Google+ Hangouts.
