Europe calling: the old giant wakes up and calls on its peeps!now that Europe shows up as the largest continent on G+ self awareness goes up and initiatives to get together flourish.
It all started this Monday with my request to post your country if you were European. I offered to circle the first 500 who would do so without any obligation to circle back. Result: we needed a part2 as we hit the 500 comments limit.
The original post was shared 225 times. You can find it here:https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/CdhmHGbYjgi
Part 2 is still open and can be found here:https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/NDAhG4fP2a7
If you didn´t do so already, post there and as long as I have spots free, I will circle you as I want to see my streams come alive during European hours.
There was a shared feeling that it would be great to get some attention from G+ for Europe with official hangouts from the community managers during European times, feature roll-outs from Google no longer restricted to the US, having some central point to share European circles and last but not least the desire to have hangouts without having to burn the midnight oil.
To help solve this and get Europeans together on the same page I created +Europeans on G+
It already has three managers out of the community but feel to offer a bit of your time as it must be a community project. Circle the page if you didn´t already do so. The first post can be found here:https://plus.google.com/100160648652252546872/posts/QXAJ1DFma68The community of Europeans responded and we got the following new initiatives:
An compilation of the who is who in the EU countries:The Euro 200 Circle by +Euro Maestro Who are the most followed in Europe ? Who have the highest Klout score ? This circle helps to answer those questions. This is sort of a Who's Who list of Europe.https://plus.google.com/107040353898400532534/posts/YPv8bzRwYXD
Next the even more exclusive circle of the most followed Europeans from all over Europe as compiled by me thanks to assistance of +CircleCount
the best profiler site there is and they happen to be European as well :) The Euro Top 50 Circle: Europeans with the largest follower countNo pages, just people based in geographic Europe who were already famous or got their followers through relentless efforts on G+ https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/QUEP9UT9iVT
An attempt to crowd source the most valuable Europeans on and for G+ by +Gabriel Vasile MAKING A "BEST OF EUROPEANS" GOOGLE+ CIRCLE
You can still cast your votes there.https://plus.google.com/106393478695568433143/posts/62vZyfksGGkAnd as promised the most important circle: you, the people!The very first shared circle of 500 Europeans who got into action on my call out on Monday.
The last thing we want is a small elite running this place so we need more peeps from all over Europe to participate and enjoy G+
I hope this post can do the rounds through Europe and gets us firmly on the G+ map. So even if you´re not European yourself, but sympathize with the initiatives to form a community here, help spread the word and share it. And don´t forget: we all love the other continents and most of us have circles which encompass the whole world. So it´s not against others, but pro us :)
