If you had access to a rolodex of social media training materials which worked, would you value them as much as if you had paid for them and ultimately use them?

I just did a short but sweet hang out with +Yifat Cohen   Cohen and +Jerry Allocca, very thought provoking. +Jerry Allocca I've just read your first chapter which you gave us for free and I am loving the simplistic, straight to the point nature of your book. i want more..... lol

Hey +Kelly Clifford - Thanks for the add on here

I didn't realise until an in-depth discussion last night ensued regarding hosting, that your site ranking is highly affected by the quality of the sites currently being hosted with the same server. Did you know that? Any tips and advice you care to share?

I talked with Google VP +Vic Gundotra tonight (disclaimer, he used to be my boss at Microsoft). He is reading everything we have written about names, and such. Both pro and con.

He says he is making some tough choices and that he will be judged over time how those choices turn out.

He says that he is trying to make sure a positive tone gets set here. Like when a restaurant doesn't allow people who aren't wearing shirts to enter.

He says it isn't about real names. He says he isn't using his legal name here. He says, instead, it is about having common names and removing people who spell their names in weird ways, like using upside-down characters, or who are using obviously fake names, like "god" or worse.

He says they have made some mistakes while doing the first pass at this and they are learning. He also says the team will change how they communicate with people. IE, let them know what they are doing wrong, etc.

I pushed him to make more of the changes, like give us a good appeals process, etc.

He also says they are working on ways to handle pseudonyms, but that will be a while before the team can turn on those features (everyone is working hard on a raft of different things and can't just react overnight to community needs).

After running through his reasoning, mostly to have a nicer, more personal, community, I feel even stronger that Google is on the right track here even though I feel they weren't fair or smart in how they spun up these new rules, but Vic convinced me to hang in there and watch their decisions over the next few weeks.

I am on board and it will be interesting to watch Vic and his team. Me? I am having a ton of fun here and that is most of what counts.

There has been a lot of discussion on G+ about downloading a backup of your Facebook account. Have you got your copy?

To do so: First go to account settings, then scroll to the bottom where you will see it says 'download your information'. Click where it says 'learn more'. It will then start a back up of your whole fb account and you will get a notification via email when it's complete.

I made a backup of my FB contact details a while back to my yahoo account which is really easy. Yahoo has a simple backup system for your FB contacts and other accounts.

To do so: Sign in to your Yahoo account, click contacts, it will then show at the top of he next screen 'import your Facebook contacts email addresses'. Then when I added my yahoo account contact details to G+, my contacts were added in an instant.

For more hints and tips like this, please feel free to sign up to my mailing list below, where you'll get to hear about my new series of social media training videos /seminars and webinars.

As someone who takes pride in creating info products, I love this! What do you think of the message?
"What G+ is really about (pst!!! it's not social") -- +Vincent Wong Believe it? Go here http://bit.ly/qfHKZQ and see his G+ photo album that argues the case. (Just click the first photo.) As a subtle counterpoint, or maybe an attenuation, it reminds me of one of my first posts here: http://bit.ly/o9NC7N People continue to talk about G+ being a Twitter & Facebook killer, but if that happens, that's besides the point. G+ is something new and inspires its own behavior & userbase. That said, can you guess who Vincent Wong thinks should be worried about G+?
