Be a part of Google+ history! Introducing The Google++ Pro Guide

UPDATE: New Tips: http://j.mp/ncJsxu

I am a big fan of collaboration, design, and helping people. So I wanted to create something that would facilitate collaboration, allow designers to have fun (while getting exposure), and help the Google+ community. Therefore, I present to you the Google++ Pro Guide. The Pro Guide is a fluid presentation of tips and tricks that will expand as more people contribute to it. I have started it off with my first tip, but to add more please follow the instructions below. As far as I know, this is the first of its kind so if you want to be a part of Google+ history in the making, help the community by adding your own tips in tricks in the form of slides.

The Google++ Pro Guide: Tip 1

(this time its embeddable)

How to add your Tip
If you are creating slides, try to have fun with the slide design by adding your own twist. If you are comfortable with Photoshop and want to abandon my template completely, feel free to do so, I only ask that you try to keep the ++ logo in the title slide in some form (hand drawn, vector, etc). In other words, show off your style! Finally, you don't have to call yourself a designer to create some slides. My instructions will clearly show you how to create your own slides.

As more tips are added to the guide I will create posts announcing the tip and tip's creator :)

I was originally going to just create more tips and tricks in the same format as my Google+ Start-Up guide but I realized there are plenty of good tips and tricks out there already and I can only make so many into slides. For example, +Tom Anderson (founder of myspace) posted a great resource of tips and tricks here: http://goo.gl/TAkFc. While working with an international team of intelligent folk to translate the original Google+ Start-Up guide I realized the power of the community. In just a couple of days the guide was translated to 25 languages. After a few days of thinking about a collaboration project and consulting with +Craig Kanalley (senior editor at the Huffington post) this idea was born.

Let's spread this around to share awesome tips and to get exposure for all the people who contribute!

More Google+ experiments to come :)

Love this! Can't wait to see all the creativity and tips from the community.
 
How do you add yourself? Have to add yourself under a new address?...nevermind got it. just type in your own email address

Sweeeeeet.
 
+Saidur (Cy) Hossain Thank you very much for providing this resource! I have a question about your tip. I have an empty circle (eg. no members) that I use for this purpose. What is the benefit of adding yourself to the "Saved" circle?
 
You made a small mistake on the 10th slide. "your" should be "you're", otherwise excellent
 
You can create a public album in Picasa that anyone can upload to. Just a thought :)
 
+Vail Joy I know but the problem I had last time was every time someone comments a on a photo G+ posted the photo to my stream polluting it with 49 posts :( So I had to create a method that fixed that and was embeddable within webpages :)
 
Great! I'm gonna contribute as soon as I get home tonight :) (posting this comment mostly as a reminder, since resharing is still not functional on the android app, hehe... :P) 
 
.
i've been doing essentially the same thing as suggested in this first tip. i called my circle sp for "saved posts".

is it just me, or is this page super slow to load?
 
+Ralph Westenberg Google+ is not Facebook. LOL One of the first things I latched onto on G+ was the fact that I could edit a post if I found a typo - something I wish Facebook would have provided a long time ago. *Edit: no disrespect intended* :)
 
this is an awesome trick. thanks a lot.
btw the page is really slow, but whatever it's worth it.
 
+Ralph Gauthier You dont need to have anyone in that circle but I figured intuitively people are more comfortable thinking that they are sharing something with themselves and not an empty circle
 
Love the idea... as G+ evolves, the community evolves around the best practices of its infrastructure USING it... :D
 
hey +Vail Joy, dont think the album is public? Also make sure your link points to a google doc slide so I can easily copy the slides over to the main one :)
 
+Saidur (Cy) Hossain, why add yourself? I use an empty circle called "Bookmarked" is there an advantage to me being in it?

My fault, you had answered that already.
 
Great idea to have this document. You don't need to have yourself in the circle, by the way, just simply create an empty one.
 
Great tip, and what a soothing font! :)
 
404: Page not found – the page http://goo.gl/lsafM does not exist.

If you typed in or copied/pasted this URL, make sure you included all the characters, with no extra punctuation.
 
Cool. Bookmarking and drafting tip very useful.
 
+Ellie Kennard great tip, especially since it took me a while to figure out how I could add myself to a circle.

I'm in.I will take care of the Simplified Chinese edition.^_^
 
I'm doing sparks, added it to the document.
 
I knew this trick and it works great. But what doesn't work is that the other remarks ar not moved to the save circle, only the original post. So you have to search that back. I whish that Google+ works out the +1 so you can save there you're favorites...
 
Hi +Pamela D Lloyd, The lobster two font is basically the same as the lobster font so you should be able to replace it :)
