This is a fantastic short TED talk on the growing problems caused by personalisation of search result (the "me" information bubble). What Google and Facebook are Hiding

Tried inviting people. Doesn't seem to have worked. Cannot reliably do a status update either. Not impressed...

I've blogged some of my favourite videos for teaching social media skills and inclusive communications here. Got any additions?

Beastly Google plus just caused blogger to eat my post because I followed its stupid profile merge suggestion so I had to rewrite it. Grr. And I had saved the draft... ! Ate it!

Have had to create a separate circle for +Robert Scoble because he posts too much. I may add +Bernie Goldbach (only joking Bernie...) and rename it "Too much information but interesting..."

Just more stuff to be waded through and it's getting unmanageable... I think the "Sharepocalypse" post by Nova Spivack on Mashable http://mashable.com/2011/07/31/social-media-overload-startups/ describes it well, and I really like his summary of the Twitter/facebook/LinkedIn/G+ differences here http://www.novaspivack.com/uncategorized/the-new-social-media-landscape-a-roadmap. I want a "tweetdeck" for the whole lot. I specially hate that I have to switch Google accounts to access G+ because it still won't interface with Google Apps emails...

No, I just don't get this Google Plus thing. I imported my contacts over to the G+ enabled gmail. Now it's trying to get me to invite people. I don't want to do that. I want to know who of my contacts is already on G+ so I can add them to my circles, not be annoying those who haven't chosen to join. This doesn't seem to be possible. Getting p'd off, running out of time to deal with something so unintuitive...

I'm worried about being a fanboi but I know that you like threaded convos and that's a G+ strength.

OK so what I don't understand is how you find people to add on Google Plus - can't you just import them from your existing network and pick which circle to put them in?

Story

Communications, gardens, horses
Introduction
Please use imogen@ctc.ie to contact me. I like teaching mixed-ability adults how to communicate and how to make technology do what they want it to. I teach and present about social media skills, digital marketing and inclusive communication. I also write, design and edit documents and websites. I am interested in learning technology, and in researching the social effects of ICTs. I organise events to discuss all of the above.

I also help people with their gardens, but I don't do garden makeovers as such - more plant care, design, maintenance. I also help with organising horse events both voluntarily and professionally (Ballindenisk, Belgooly Show). I was previously a trustee of the Guillaine-Barre Syndrome Support Group charity and still act as "local contact" for GBS patients and families needing support in Ireland.
