NEW FEATURE: How to add multi media to your LinkedIn publisher posts

At last we can now embed multi media into our LinkedIn posts including Tweets and YouTube videos.

I wonder if this will mean that people now start to use LinkedIn Publisher more as a blogging platform?

Discovering how to post to circles, communities and contacts in the new Google Plus design

By now you have probably heard about the new design of Google Plus - if you have changed over to the new design you may, like me wonder how to do your first post.

On desk top on the bottom right of your screen you will see the icon to create the post.

After you have written your post you will need to either search for a person to post to them, or as you can see in this animated image you can search for the appropriate collection or community to post to.

Remember you can still upload photos, add links to content or include video content to help your posts stand out.

And if you are wondering where the link to Hangouts On Air have gone you will need to go to - I recommend you bookmark that link as we can no longer navigate to Hangouts from the left hand menu of Google Plus.

How do you like the new design of Google Plus? What tips do you have to share to help us get familiar with the design?

If you missed the announcement about the Google Plus redesign you can find it here h

How to use the live stream platform on your desktop

If you have been hearing about the reltively new live stream platform Blab and have wondered how to navigate around the platform, this video will help get you started.

The app is continuously being developed so even since creating this video in the last day or so, there have been updates. I hope this is of assistance - you will find many familiar faces there from Google Hangouts On Air and Periscope.

In summary is a public platform where you can live stream with up to four people at the same time.

This video covers how the desk top version works - a separate video covers how the Beta iOS app works.

Do let me know if you are on Blab and I am not already following you.

A Black Friday special offer on stock photography

If you are creating digital content today, you will know the importance of relevant images to encourage people to engage, interact and share your content.

I always recommend that people take their own photographs, but even then we may not have a relevant image to include in the article or post.

Yes there are some great free stock photography sites around, but you don;t want to look like your post was a 'me too' or copycat.

Today I invested in a credit pack of 100 photos from Deposit Photos

I love the fact that the credits do not expire after a certain length of time - I probably will not need 100 photos in the near future but it is good to know that I will be able to access them over time.

Before making the investment I was able to search the site to see if there were the kinds of images I would want to use in presentations and documents.

If you want to access the same deal I did you will be able to do so as part of a #Blackriday promotion - please not if you purchase through my link I will receive a credit (not cash) for the referral.

You can access the promotion here

How to share a post on the newly designed Google Plus profile

If you are experimenting with the new Google Plus profile design you might be wondering what the announcement meant when it referenced it would be easier to share your content to other networks.

At the bottom of a post you will see the share icon and when you click that you have four options:

- share to Google Plus

- copy the link

- share to Facebook

- share to Twitter.

When sharing on Google Plus you will need to click at the top of the post to determine who you want to share the content with or if you want to share the content to a community.

The animated screenshots below show you the process in action.

I am demonstrating this on a post from my friend +Ronnie Bincer and thanks to +B.L. Ochman for prompting me to check out these changes as she has been exploring all the changes to Google Plus.

New updates to Blab that you may have missed including the ability to embed a scheduled event on your website or blog

Repin the article to read later

If you have been experimenting with +Team Blab for your business live stream events, one of the things you may have wanted to be available is an official embed code to allow you to embed your scheduled event on your blog or website.

Well that is now available - yes we were previously sent the embed code for replays but there was no 'official' embed for forthcoming events.

The platform has also had a number of changes to it since my original tutorials and I highlight some of the most important updates in the article.

Are you experimenting with #Blab or are you still using Google Hangouts On Air?

 I have not stopped - I have been watching and participating in the chat during number of events but my co-host has been traveling for the last 4 weeks and I have been pretty busy with work and business travel. Thanks for asking and missing me!
