Tip 30/50: Curate & Streamline Circles for Awesome News Streams
You are the master of your own post feed. Only you can create an experience you truly want to keep coming back to!

One of Google+'s most innovative features is Circles which means you can create individual streams of content from different types of people, rather than one long feed of jumbled up posts like Facebook. (If you are lumping anyone and everyone into one or two circles you are doing it wrong!)

You can create as many different topical circles as you like (max 5000) with your own custom labels based on your individual interests, and group the people you follow into any one of these, or across multiple circles if you so wish.

You can then click into any of the custom streams (located just below the search bar when on the Google+ home screen) as and when you like to get highly relevant posts on your interests. 

It is up to you to cultivate (add people) & preen (move/remove people) your circles as you see fit over time to sculpt a brilliant, absorbing G+ experience every time. Even Google+ veterans may want to revisit their circles and cut out irrelevant or inactive people they have amassed over time.

DID YOU KNOW
► You can set up notifications for your most important circles so you never miss a post (click into the circle and turn on/off the bell symbol)
► You can "turn the volume up or down" for each of your circles so that you see more/less posts from that particular circle in your default home feed (click the "settings" (cog) symbol in the circle)
► You can completely mute certain circles so no posts feature in your home stream and you can only see them if you actually click into that circle's stream (in "settings" - as above)

This is just one of many Google+ tips, you can find more tips like this from the #googleplus50 series here: http://www.rickeliason.com/things-to-do-on-google-plus/

Wie die Kandidaten der #bundestagswahl2013 zu verschieden Umweltschutzthemen stehen.
 
Wie halten es die Parteien mit der Umweltpolitik?

Umweltprobleme sind nicht kleiner geworden. Klimawandel oder Artenverlust haben sich sogar zugespitzt. Politiker reden gerne über Nachhaltigkeit. Aber tun sie auch in der Praxis etwas für Umweltschutz?

Zur bevorstehenden Bundestagswahl 2013 haben wir Spitzenpolitiker zu wichtigen umweltpolitischen Themen befragt. Die Antworten findest du in unserem Wahlkompass: http://bit.ly/16FQcki

Mache die Positionen der Politiker bekannt und teile den Beitrag!

Can You Help? I AM STUCK IN ATHENS... 

30 days ago, I asked the question, 'Is it possible to travel the world using nothing but Google+ and a whole lot of hugs'... Turned out it was, but now I am stuck in athens with a damaged passport and can only travel backwards, not onwards to my next destination which was meant to be 'Mumbai.

I was going to travel country-to-country to Beijing, and then once I arrived in Beijing, walk 15,000km back to london whilst raising money for the childrens charity UNICEF... 

I have just created a crowd-funding campaign to help raise funds for my ticket back to the UK. -> https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/6aYgb

I am not going to give up. I need to fly back to Manchester, UK, get a new passport, an indian visa and then fly to Mumbai next week to continue with my Google+ travel experiment.

Please help. Share this post with your friends and family, or tag someone in the comments section below that you think may be able to help.

One of the main questions I am seeing is 'Why don't I pay for this myself? The problem is not that I don't have money, it's that I can't spend money until I get to Beijing unless it's on food or water. This was meant to be an experiment to show the world that Google+ is not a ghost-town and everyone here genuinely cares about other people... That Google+ is different, and not just another social network like Facebook or Twitter.

If I pay for the ticket myself, this experiment will fail... and then I will have to jump on a plain and go to Beijing directly... And that's the last thing I want, because I really want to show the world how amazing Google+ and the people here truly are.

Can someone offer help for +Michael Lee Johnson in Paris?

#hangoutsonair #travel #couchsurfing
 
IMPORTANT! I got 99 problems, but a bed ain't one (at least for tonight anyway - Thanks to +Jim Banks  )... But tomorrow is going to be a different story. I need a place to stay in Paris for tomorrow night. CAN ANYONE HELP ME? Does anyone even use Google+ in Paris?

For those of you that don't know what I am doing... Over the course of the next 3 years, I am going to be walking from Beijing to London, whilst doing live Google+ hangouts from one side of the world to the other and recording a documentary about my use of Google+ over the entire duration. 

On Friday July 26th, I was going to be boarding a flight to Hong Kong with the intention of heading up to Beijing on the train, and then I had an idea...

Why not make this journey a little more interesting. Why not make it more about you, and less about me. Inviting you into my journey. Inviting you to take part. And instead of getting on a flight direct to Hong Kong, why not ditch this plane ticket and social-travel all the way using nothing but Google+ and the goodwill of this community... Allowing me to showcase that within my documentary and to the rest of the world...And then walk the entire 15,000km back home (as scheduled) doing live Google+ hangouts.

For more information please visit the original post:  https://plus.google.com/u/0/100125012078853567494/posts/6222hncypWU


How can you help? Things I still need...

I need a place to stay in Paris on Friday night. (Tomorrow as of writing this) 
Ways to help:  Share this post. Pay for a day at a hostel or a night at an apartment  (about 30$) from hostel-bookers

I need to get from Paris to Amsterdam
Ways to help:  Share this post. Pay for a coach/train, or drive me.
Coaches cost about £12 from http://goo.gl/wESGBJ (this is important - can you get me this?)

At the moment, everything in my body is telling me to go home, curl up and just give up...  But I can’t... Because I don’t want to. Because this is my dream and I am going to bring it to life no matter what happens.

My phone number is +44(0)7925 200 333 for all of the people that have offered to help me. I will be contactable on this number for the next 30 days...

Gute Reise aus Deutschland

Hey Googlers! The Countdown Has Begun.

How would you like to take part in one of the most EPIC EVENTS set to go down in history - right here on Google+?

In 22 days from now,  I will be taking you on an interactive journey of over 15,000km, from Beijing, China, to London, England. All completely on foot over the duration of 3 years, whilst doing live Google+ hangouts in every village and city, and life-streaming my entire journey here on Google+ for you all to follow along and take part.

Awesome, right?

I am going to be broadcasting live from the road. Allowing you to see what I see, and experience what I experience. I am going to make sure this journey is about YOU and not just ME. I want you to have the most culturally-diverse experience you could possibly have right from the comfort of your seats, here on the best social network in existence. - +Google+ 

For the most part of my journey I am going to be spreading the Google+ love. I will become a fully-fledged self-appointed Google+ brand ambassador and take it upon myself to spread the word about how great this platform truly is - because people like YOU make it so. 

I am going to be interviewing a whole range of people on a variety of subjects, from technology, the web and social media, to politics, education and life. From scheduled weekly topical hangouts, to daily hangout parties, to live-streaming some parts of my journey and more. It’s going to be an interactive extravaganza to say the least.

There are multiple deserts and mountains for me to cross over and walk around. Plenty of people that speak languages I don’t understand (bearing in mind I only speak English and a little Mandarin). Some of the areas get insanely-hot in the summer (I am fair-skinned and will probably boil and get 2nd degree burns), and so stupidly-cold (we’re talking like -40o bollocks-freezing cold here). Every terrain type you could possibly imagine I have to put myself through. 

This is some of my route plan for those interested -> http://goo.gl/maps/1qzmP 

It’s going to be fun. It’s going to be interesting. It’s going to be challenging. 

I just need a little help. A little support.

How Can You Help?

Mention it on forums or within your communities. Email journalists. Phone a friend. - Help me get the word out.
