5 Things your friends should know before joining Google+

1) Let’s start with the obvious one. G+ is not Facebook… or Twitter...or Pinterest. Or a combination of them all. Or an attempt to kill them.
Even though they are all in the same business of capturing your attention, your time and your information, they provide different services.
FB mainly connecting family and friends.
Twitter with instant news
Pinterest lets you express your interests through pictures
Google+ allows you to connect to the world and find people that like the same things you like, so you can talk about them and exchange ideas.
All these social media platforms try to provide features for businesses to easily engage with customers.

2) When people add you to their circles is a good thing.
You want people to add you. That means they are going to read what you post. What about privacy? You control what you share and who you share with. If you post public, that means the world can potentially see it. If you post to a group or individuals of your choosing, then only those people will see it. By adding you, people don’t get access to more information. It’s just easier to see your posts because they will appear in their home page (not to be confused with profile), the main stream of posts.
In Google+ you will meet strangers. No doubt about it. Guaranteed. If you are not ready to step outside of the protective cocoon of family and friends then you will need to reconsider joining in. Strangers come in all flavours, from pleasing to disgusting. You can report and block the later ones. But if your idea of interacting with others is to only talk to people you know, then you are in the wrong place. Come visit us, when you are ready to expand your horizons and experience a new world.

3) Circles main goal is not to target audiences.
You can use them, but they are inefficient and hard to manage for this purpose. Communities are much better to focus your conversations on a particular interest. Collections allow your followers to read your posts about a topic, rather than following you as an individual with multiple interests. Collections do not require you to figure out in which circle you should put your followers or which posts should you share with them, based on their interests.
Circles allow you to organize your reading. Each circle has its own stream (even though you can choose to read all of them in the main stream). All posts are visible in the circle streams. You can choose to receive notifications and the amount of posts (none, fewer, standard, more) that you want to see in the main stream. Add only people you are interested in, not because they added you. At the beginning be generous with adding, so you can have a bigger pool to choose from. Then remove the ones you don’t like enough to keep.
Circles will have a big impact in your Google+ experience, as you will get new recommendations and posts based on the content shared by your circles.

4) When you let Google backup your photos, they are not instantly shared.
You see them. The rest of the world don’t...until you share them. If you decide to share one photo, make sure you don’t share the whole album that contains the photo. Creating an album with the photos you want to share is a good idea to avoid surprises. Photos are no longer exclusive to the Google+ product. They are now called Google Photos and you can share them anywhere.

5) General advice.
Don’t play with your name. You can only change it 3 times in a 90-day period.
Add a photo to your profile so people can recognize you next time they find your post.
Posts in public communities are visible to members and non-members. They are public posts. And they are visible in your profile, unless you choose not to show them there.
Make sure people can comment on your public posts by checking your settings at plus.google.com/settings That’s the idea, isn’t it?
Visit often myaccount.google.com to keep your account safe.
Have fun and keep those posts safely rolling.

India: WE'RE GOING SOLAR
Saudi: WE'RE GOING SOLAR
South Africa: WE'RE GOING NUCLEAR!?

I'll just leave this here.

In an ironic twist, the Kingdom of Crude Oil – Saudi Arabia – wants to transform itself into the Sultanate of Solar Power. Tim Maverick explains why.

Google Doodle for the day (google.ie) commemorates the 101'st anniversary of the first electric traffic light. Otherwise known as a Robot, in South Africa.  Makes perfect sense to us, but so does the phrases "now now" and "just now". :D

Story
Tagline
I'm a geek who likes to work and play with geek toys.
Introduction
Fascinated with technology from a young age I was one of those kids who always dismantled stuff to see how they work. I have an uncontrollable urge to understand the inner workings of everything.

On the flipside I love nature and being surrounded by the beauty of it. I hope to one day be immersed in it and use technology to educate others in preserving our little speck of dust in the cosmos. 

I share information that pertains to my interests and circle people accordingly. If you want to be added to any of the circles below please let me know. 

  • Android
  • Linux
  • ChromeOS
  • Raspberry Pi
  • Amazon Web Services
  • Google
  • Apple
  • PC and console gaming
