What do you think? Are the rumors of death for Google+ (once again) over-exaggerated? Or, knowing how often Google gives life to, and then kills off products - might this be an ill omen indeed?

What would you do if Google+ closed shop?
 
It's been a long time coming, but now it's official - Google+ is being broken up into two distinct products as part of the ongoing restructuring of Google's failed social network:  http://ow.ly/K67ld

Google has already confirmed that the Photos/Streams team is basically an internal change only. Nothing is being removed from G+ functionality relative to Photos/Streams. The new team will likely be seeking ways to leverage Photos/Streams product to potential users that aren't G+ users, in hopes of pulling them in and showing what can be done via that channel. I fail to see how this signals the death of anything. The strategy of mandating starting a G+ account might not be paying off for them, so they're trying another approach. Makes sense to me.

One source for the above is this: http://goo.gl/WxUd6K Read the comment from Yonatan Zunger - Chief Architect of G+ if you haven't already, please.

Horowitz running the team, has me optimistic rather than the contrary.

I'll be speaking at the Academy of Laser Dentistry's annual conference next week about social media - so I'd like to ask you a question:

What information could your dentist share online that you would find useful?

Thanks in advance for your replies!

Great suggestion +Ed Carter - thanks. I would bet that the same would apply to toothbrushes and mouthwash as well. Cheers!

I've had tremendous over the last year by improving #7 & #8 on her list. I'd love to hear about how any of these tips are working for you! 
 
14 Ways to Increase Your Clickthrough Rate on Twitter
"Tweeting is easy. You can type up anything in three seconds and press "tweet." But sending a clickable tweet -- that, my friend, is a science.

Thankfully, making your tweets clickable doesn't "just happen" based on the whim of the Twitter gods. It happens when you intentionally apply a certain set of principles."

So you're on LinkedIn, and you have a respectably robust network full of well-connected and eager to succeed connections...

But, do you have a plan for turning this into business and opportunity? Is your profile written not only to attract new connections, but to wow and  to demonstrate to your existing connections what value you can provide them?

+Mike Allton share the secrets behind what it takes to develop and put to use a perfect profile.

The Ultimate Guide to the Perfect LinkedIn Profile
UPDATED & EXPANDED!

Taking the time to make your LinkedIn profile look as thorough and professional as possible is a big deal. So much so that I've devoted a tremendous amount of time creating and updating this Ultimate Guide to the Perfect LinkedIn profile. Packed with recommendations, screenshots and expert tips, this will help you make sure that profile is working hard to promote you, and your business.

This update includes an entire new section on Why Use LinkedIn At All if you're running a business, more screenshots, and some fabulous Expert Tips from +Sarah Santacroce +Stephan Hovnanian and +Andy Foote. And a few bug fixes. :) Consider this version 2.0.1.

This is not a 5 Top Tips kind of post, folks. If you're serious about improving your LinkedIn profile, expect to spend at least an hour or two going through all of the recommendations and making necessary changes to your profile. Plan to bookmark this and revisit as often as needed. That said, it's time well spent, so I hope you're able to optimize that profile and really leverage it to grow and promote yourself and your business.

Great points from +Sean Gardner on the secret of getting asked to speak at conferences.

I'm posting this while at the Academy of Laser Dentistry annual conference where I'm speaking on Saturday, and this is exactly how I got this invitation as well.

This is all I want for Christmas!
 
This is Victoria, my steampunk media pc. Shes connected to a led and a stereo, I dont use the monitor in picture anymore but keep it for the look. I based the design on a writing desk, the project took me six months. I love her to bits, hope you all do as well.
