Rallying the technology is good
I'm a marketer and tech lover. (A Roogler = Aussie Googler.) Add me to circles for updates on stuff I like: mobile, tech, music, food, beach; stuff I live: Google, YouTube, Google+, Android, marketing, small biz, sydney.
If you're new to Google+, here are some quick tips:
1. Add people into circles
Once you have 20-50 people into your circles, you're ready to share the right things with the right people, read interesting posts and talk face-to-face-to-face (that's what we call Hangouts). I have about 1000 people in my circles -- that's a little unwieldy -- but I can filter updates from different circles.
Add people who are active on Google+ - this could be friends, family, co-workers, people who share the same interests as you. You can find people to add by searching for them, seeing who other interesting people have in their circles, finding suggested users, adding a shared circle of a group or community.
2. Get great content in your stream
Google+ is great for rich content, not just from friends, but other interesting people. Find people to add to your circles who share the same interests as you. What’s Hot shows the most popular posts being shared on Google+ right now. I also save searches to see a feed of posts around topics I'm particularly interested in like Bondi Beach and Android.
3. Get people to add you to circles
The easiest way to get people to add you is to engage - post, comment on posts, reshare interesting posts - people love it when you help make their content go viral!
