I can be a designer...
I can be a friend...
I can comment sports...
I can comment photography…
I can comment music...
I can comment TV...
I can comment movies...
and… I can write in two different languages.
And not bother you.
If I do all I mentioned above in Facebook or Twitter, i’ll be damaging important personal and professional relationships, because I’ll be spamming, instead of channeling it to the right… circle.
We’re not entitled, socially, to be that open, that wide, opinion wise. You’re asked to focus on a single one, and stick to it.
It may be dead in a week, who know’s? But they’re doing it right, and I can only hope the competition understands and improves upon it.
I gathered some useful basic orientation tips for Google+ to help you move faster:
- First work on your circles that will put sense into things...
- You can click on someones picture, notification etc..and add him to a circle on the go.
- Don't worry Circle names are visible only to you! (your friends can't see how you tagged them)
Protip: Copy one circle into another circle.
1) Go to Circles.
2) Click on a circle.
3) Click "View circle in tab".
4) On the top right click "More action" -> "Select all".
Then you can drag everyone from one circle into another circle.
Privacy and Picasa
Note: - Picasa photos are viewed by default, and use the original settings you provided on picasa
- Manage how others see your profile by typing their name here - https://plus.google.com/u/0/settings/privacy
- You can click "edit" and omit the "photos" tab
- The easiest way to change all albums settings is via Picasa go to https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/myphotos click "edit visibility" and change your albums settings
Stop all those emails
- Change email settings https://plus.google.com/settings/plus
- Mute conversations -
A few more Google+ tips:
- Text formatting
bold is with * *
italics is with _
- Write to someone
simply start writing a post and type that persons profile name it will limit and send your post to him only...kind of like writing on their wall...
- You can tag someone in the post by using the @ or + symbols (Note that if you tagged someone it will become a limited post and you will have to add "public" to make it public.)
- Drag and drop in the share box - https://plus.google.com/116447414911527915678/posts/Ys8pHJyCuRm
- In the stream, you can click 'j' to navigate down to the next item or 'k' to navigate up. I think it's the same keys that Gmail uses,
- If you're sharing a post with a small circle of people, you can prevent resharing. Click the arrow at the top-right of the post and choose "Disable reshare."
- Click the arrow at the top-right of the post and you can - Link to it, Mute it etc...
- You can edit your post or comment after you already posted them.
- You can comment/respond from within the notification bar itself.
