I'M BACK

When I got V2 of Google Glass, I started to using my other Google Glass profile https://plus.google.com/u/0/+LynnedJohnson2 more frequently.   And while this one has more followers, that one is linked to my Google Apps account and the primary email address that I use. But if I'm going to re-test the engagement potential of Google+ seems that I'd do it here with the account that's gotten more views and followers over time, even with my infrequent posting.
