Google+ For Newbies: The Three C’s of G+

New year, new members! Many of you reading this are vets who know the ins and outs of Google+. But we’d like to take a quick moment to welcome all of the new members who have recently joined. Joining a new network can sometimes be overwhelming, so starting today we’ll be sharing a few posts designed to help you understand and enjoy G+.

Today we’ll be starting with the three pillars of Google+, Communities and Collections make connections.
The 3 Cs of Google+
#newGplus #howtogoogleplus

Collections: Help you organize posts around topics, and let your followers choose what types of posts they want to see from you. If you find yourself posting a lot about a specific topic, it’s a good idea to create a collection. People who really want to read about this subject will engage more as you are providing content they are interested in, and people who don’t want to hear about it, won’t be turned off. It’s a win-win for everyone.

Communities: You can have conversations with people who share your interests. Different than collections in which only the owner can post, communities allow every member to post. Advantage: invites discussions and exchange of ideas and provides different points of view on a subject. Disadvantage: requires a lot of work from the moderator to keep the posts on topic and monitoring behaviour while trying to allow everyone to express their ideas.

Connections (or circles): You can add people/pages to your circles. Also called follow.
When you follow a person/page, posts they share with you will show up in your home stream, unless your settings stop this from happening.
Someone you follow doesn't have to follow you back, so they might not see what you post.
Make sure you follow because you are interested on the posts and not as a complimentary follow back. Google will suggest people, communities and collections based on who you follow. In the end, who you follow will have a big influence in your G+ experience.

Beautiful photos deserve to be seen in all their glory, but traditionally that’s meant your bandwidth pays the price. Check out how we’re putting machine learning to work on the hi-res images in Google+ streams so they load using up to 75% less bandwidth per image, but continue to display as they were meant to be seen.

#ThatsAPlus: +BRUNO DINIZ's Portuguese language Collection amasses 20,000 followers

After starting with only a dozen followers, Bruno is now enjoys a large audience thanks to his consistency and focus on quality posts.

So what's the takeaway? When your Collection is new and you aren’t getting a lot of attention, don’t be discouraged. Remember Bruno and keep pushing!
O Google mudou meu conceito sobre redes sociais

Desde o início das operações do Google+ eu investi na criação de um perfil que fosse uma alternativa ao perfil que eu já possuía em uma outra rede social. Fiquei alguns anos com um simples perfil tentando aprender os segredos desta incrível ferramenta, foi quando o Google lançou o sistema de coleções... Com isso eu criei a coleção "Entre Cédulas, Moedas Selos e Histórias" e mesmo com pouco mais de uma dezena de seguidores eu nunca desisti de criar conteúdos e de investir meu tempo na plataforma, deixando de lado outras redes sociais! Meu esforço foi recompensado quando minha coleção recebeu destaque no Google pelo conteúdo proposto, me dando mais ânimo, motivação e vontade de aprender de fato como usar a rede. Não sou um perito na plataforma, mas estou todos os dias aprendendo com outros usuários, debatendo novas idéias, criando novos conteúdos e vendo minha coleção tendo o sucesso merecido pelo esforço e reconhecimento que o Google foi capaz de me dar! Hoje tenho quase 20.000 seguidores em minha coleção, participando e interagindo das formas mais diversas... Estou feliz com os resultados e minha coleção numismática, histórica e cultural só vem crescendo!!! Obrigado Google... O ano de 2016 foi "G+" e 2017 poderá ser ainda melhor! Crie sua coleção também, venha participar...

Introducing The "36" Walk, Constrain. Compose. Click.

Thanks to the luxuries of digital photography, we have the ability to capture endless shots with the knowledge that we’ll only keep a few of them in the end. The 36 PhotoWalk by +Paul Pavlinovich is a unique challenge that urges you to think about considering composition and lighting before snapping a photo. You’ll share the thirty-six images you took and explain what compelled you to capture each still.

Sound interesting? Read on….
Introducing The "36" Walk, Constrain. Compose. Click.
In this wonderful digital age most of us tend to fire and forget and we know that we'll reap a few good shots in the end. We're encouraged in this behaviour because digital costs us only time.

Want to improve your photography?
Maybe you want to improve? Maybe you want to impose some restraint?

The "36" walk will help by limiting you to 36 shots during the walk. Film or digital, that's up to you but only 36. You will have to think about your composition, the light and the outcomes in advance before you hit that button. There are no "36" police to force you, but give it a go. You might be surprised at the outcome.

Consider and compose before you click.

You are encouraged to create a collection on your profile called The 36 2017 (or similar) and share all 36 of your images to it in separate posts. Consider explaining what attracted you to each scene if you would care to do so in the post for the image. Let's flood the internet with good photography.

#36photo #36photo2017 - posts shared with this tag will be reshared from this page after the walk into the 2017 collection.

History / Why
The "36" Walk is a photo geo walk which began in Melbourne in 2012 within the Photograph Melbourne community. It has run each year since then in various parts of Melbourne usually sometime in April.

The walk started because +Paul Pavlinovich realised that we are in a wonderful digital age but observed that his own photography was decreasing in quality and there seemed to be an emphasis on quantity instead. On discussing this with peers this seemed to be the general observation. This sparked the idea of The "36" where participants would be constrained as though they had a 36 shot film loaded.

The walk has been very successful locally with strong turn outs each year and participants achieving good outcomes. There are no 36 police so it's up to people to manage their own count and to be honest to themselves.

Paul generally shoots film on the walk but most of the participants stick with digital. There are even some who mix it up and do both.

Paul felt it was time to enlarge the scope of the walk to help people all around the world rediscover photography with constraints.

Join or host a "36" walk near you.

Meet Create Member +Jina Wallwork

Hello Jina! Tell us a little bit about yourself and your passion?

”I’m Jina Wallwork and I'm an artist. My passion for art began when I did, and it will cease when I breathe for last time. It is a piece of me, and it is not shaped by external forces. My passion responds to the external world, but it isn't defined by it. Through art I express my connection to all things. My art is a part of my voice.”

How did you draw inspiration to write a book?

My art is inspired by many different experiences. When I faced heartache I used art to express my own difficulties. I found a point of vulnerability and expressed both my love and sorrow. These pieces combined to become a book about the experience. Sharing the experience made me realize that I wasn't alone.”

Hello Bob!, tell us a little bit about yourself

”Hello everybody :-) I love the adventure, discovery and the learning associated with wildlife. I share this with you by combining photographs and natural history “creations” will hopefully inspire you to connect to nature. “

Whats your favorite creation?

”One of my favorite creations was finding, photographing a Flame Skimmer (dragonfly post - at a remote hot spring in southwestern was a challenge. A wildfire had swept through the area several years ago and had left much downed timber (mature Ponderosa Pine) to clamber over/around. After much effort, I spied this dragonfly species on a fire-killed snag over the hot spring waters: fiery apropos :-)”
