I dabbled in PERSI myself while I maintained my HeritageQuest subscription. I'll admit to little real success. But with the families I've been chasing it came as no real surprise. Now I'll just have to check it out over at FindMyPast!
You may have noticed (and by the comments and questions coming in via social media, many of you have) that I have been working with the PERSI index quite a bit lately. I made a commitment to myself, and to PERSI, that I would...

A recent research trip flared these frustrations all over again. I believe in sharing but am constrained by the tree system. I blog the narrative but meaningfully attaching/indexing that within the tree structure is difficult. And, the biggest festering problem is the inability to attach the major non-family players who are essential elements in an ancestors history. Thanks again Tony for giving me hope a different method is possible if not imminent.

Like Pat, draft mode would be so helpful. If I'm to keep everything together and interrelated, a way to wall off the tentative would be necessary.
The subject of public family trees frequently does the rounds. In this post, I want to examine what people would like to share — software permitting — and the functional requirements of that sharing. At the fore of the...

Friend of The Who Hunter +Julie Goucher spotted this helpful nugget!
 
How to Link to a Google+ Post

Did you know that every public Google+ post is essentially a webpage that can be linked to and shared? If you post something great or find something that someone else has posted, you can use the post link to share that post to other social networks.

You can also bookmark Google+ posts for later reading!

The trick is to use the timestamp on the post itself. You can click it to open any post in a new tab or window.

For more detailed instructions and screenshots, including a shortcut, read more: http://www.thesocialmediahat.com/article/how-link-google-plus-post 

Personally, I don't often share Google+ posts to other networks, but I do find it really convenient either when I have a long list of resource links within a Google+ post, or for sharing specific Events like scheduled HOAs. How about you? Do you ever share Google+ posts to other social networks, or will you now that you know how?

Something to think about. What's your strategy - Page or Profile?
 
Balancing Google+ Page vs. Profile
Two words: Subject Authority

Solopreneurs and small businesses have a hard time balancing the decision to post to their company Google+ page, or their personal profile. Here's my take, and I'm using +Mark Traphagen , +Eric Enge and +Stone Temple Consulting to illustrate (thanks in advance guys!), simply because the question of Page vs. Profile usually involves Authorship, and nobody knows Authorship better than Mark.

Authorship
Both your profile and page should be connected to your website; your page for verification and publisher purposes, your profile for Authorship. Now that part of the discussion is out of the way.

Posting Strategy
You optimize your website for those keywords, why wouldn't you optimize your Google+ posts for the same? It doesn't matter whether they are your own posts or reshares; if you were to look through the last 10 posts on your Google+ page, would it be in sync with the topics in which your business has the most authority?

Your profile can, and should, mix it up. If there is a company post that is relevant to your audience, share it to your profile with an intro and reason why it's relevant. This way any reshares pass your company's post along and give your company more exposure.

An example
Mark and Eric do this perfectly, with Stone Temple Consulting's Caturday Weekly Reader (http://goo.gl/JVviuW), just look at the Ripples for the post to see what I mean. STC originates the content, it gets pushed out by all the company's employees, who have already built up trust and authority with their own audiences, so the STC post gets shared by way more people than it would have by itself.

Why this really matters
The marketing aspect is great, but the ability to finely tune a Google+ page to match the subject matter of its business and connected website are, in my opinion, the primary reason to have a Google+ page. All of the page’s followers are interested in that subject matter, which also means they could be potential customers or colleagues. When it comes to the people following a profile, however, the reasons could be varied.
