The hopefully helpful suggestions in the blog and posts come from our long experience on Google+, as First Generation plussers.
We are not here to dictate how you should use Google+, but to show ways how you could use it.
There is no must on Google+

Many of the users know more about the technical side of computers like cookies and things than we do, so we concentrate on other matters.
We give advice about the better use of Google+, not troubleshooting your computer or fixing the possible bugs in Google+.

What is Google+?
Google+ is different from other platforms and needs a bit more work than, lets say Pinterest. But once you've understood what the idea behind Circles is, the rewards are great. Don't wait for your friends and family to join you but venture outside your comfort zone and you might be surprised!
What about Google+, why would I create a new social media account?

For the newcomers to Google+ the place might look like a desert. Your stream is empty, your friends haven’t joined in, the whole place feels strange and even its UI is a bit baffling. Where to start?
Please finish your profile, make it a first priority.
When you add me to your Circles I always try to check who you are, to see if you're worth circling back. Without public posts and a good 'Information' text on your profile it's very difficult to determine what your likes are...
The same if I find you commenting on someone else's post: Make your profile image striking for attracting the attention, if that's what you'd like, that is.
Posts, profile, photo... If there is nothing showing, I'll not even think of circling you back, sorry.
Use the Google+ search
Search Google+ for your favorite authors, artists, celebrities, sports stars. Search for your preferred hobby or anything you are interested in, then circle those who say things that grab your attention. Check who they have circled or who has circled them. Select abundantly and soon you’ll find yourself splashing in streams of thoughts, tips and news about the very things that interest you. Search for #hashtags
and save the search for later easy use.
Be yourself and post about the topics you like:
It's just a question of finding your niche. And making an effort.
My 5 C:s are: Circle, curate, create, communicate & consume!
Google+ is what you make of it...
