Why I LOVE Google Voice!

First of all, I feel comfortable sharing that number everywhere. 

Because I can define who gets through to me directly, who gets filtered, and who moves to VM right away - like these spammy marketers.

And when they leave a spammy voicemail, I can block them with one click and never hear from them again.

Make your videos even more interactive with cards
Bye-Bye Annotations, hello Cards

Cards allow you to add a new layer of interactivity to your videos. They are applied on a per video basis and are rendered on desktop and mobile devices. You can provide a destination URL from a list of eligible sites and, depending on the card type, customize an image, title, and call-to-action text.

Right now, you can choose from six types of cards: Merchandise, Fundraising, Video, Playlist, Associated Website and Fan Funding. You’ll find a new “Cards” tab in your Video Editor to create and edit them at any time.

And here's the cool part - Cards are also available on live streams, so if you start a hangout from YouTube, you can use Cards too.

Check'em out.

Google Buys Odysee - auto backup to your computer

One of the interesting things about Odysee — “especially designed for people who take a lot of videos and would like the option of saving them at their full quality” — was that it shifted the storage option to your own computer rather than any public cloud. At the same time it had developed a caching feature that let users access those pictures even if the computer was offline or working on a slow Internet connection.

“Odysee keeps copies of recently accessed photos and videos online at high quality. Odysee keeps copies of photos and videos that are unlikely to be accessed (it predicts what is likely to be accessed) online at lower quality similar to that on Instagram or Facebook,” the company noted in its FAQ. “You always have a version of everything online.”

How to Transform Your Google+ Profile from Blah to Fantastic

Create a great cover photo. Use this valuable real estate to tell a story of who you are and why people should circle you on Google+. If you are a blogger or brand, you’ll want to match your Google+ cover photo with your website or blog.

What does your Google+ cover photo say to your profile visitors?

Add a relevant bio sprinkled with keywords

Your bio is a calling card, consider it your introduction to your next client. What do you want them to know about you? Why should they circle you? 

Read it all here:

Specify your social profiles to Google

Today Google announced that you can now markup your official website to add your social profile information to the Google Knowledge panel in some searches.

As social channels continue to become an increasingly prominent touch point, the new markup can provide searchers with another opportunity to engage with your brand.

Then join this hangout and sit down for a chat with 2 multi-millionaires who are doing things differently.

Bestselling Author, Acclaimed Speaker and Filmmaker - +Greg Reid is a natural entrepreneur known for his giving spirit and a knack for translating complicated situations into simple, digestible concepts.

Recently, Greg has been hand selected by The Napoleon Hill Foundation to help carry on the teaching found in the bible of personal achievement – Think and Grow Rich.

As a best selling author, entrepreneur and executive advisor, John Humphrey's company Freshcojohn, LLC, has generated millions of dollars in sales for North America’s premier Vending Opportunity for last 7 years. 

Tired of the bill of goods sold to entrepreneurs to achieve instant results, Greg and John will talk about what does it really take to be successful in business and how they manage to fill out a high end, exclusive event without the use of social media, online advertisement or a website.

Their event - Secret Knock - is by invitation only, and as a gift for your participation in the Hangout, Greg and John will show you how you too can be invited.

+John Gray and you - face to face in Unscripted Hangout

Join us this Monday night and grab your seat in the Hangout, as we dive into an Unscripted conversation with the best selling Author of Men are From Mars, Women are from Venus.

RSVP below.

#johngray   #relationship   #hangoutsonair   #menarefrommars   #womenarefromvenus   #gplusgotogal  
Unscripted conversations with world leaders.

Women - do you find yourselves craving sugar, sweets and that you're easily getting upset even over little things?

Men - Do you find yourselves fatigue, feeling "blah" and with a sense of boredom or flatness?

+John Gray, author of Men are from Mars, women are from Venus says that you're probably stressed out. a lot.

The good news - One supplement,  PGX, a tri-fiber that absorbs carbohydrates and regulates blood sugar levels, helps the brain more readily manufacture needed chemicals.
But he gets even more specific, since men and women's brains are different, we react differently to stress and we need different natural cures to help with our chemical differences.

Alternatives to Medication
Scientific proof for natural remedies.

When major disease hit (like cancer, Parkinson's, ADHD, etc) it is more comfortable to relay on Western Medicine to take care of us.

John Gray was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and used natural remedies to heal himself, and proved that by using food, supplements and exercise we can achieve the right chemical balance, get off anti depressant and cure ADHD in boys.

But in our everyday lives, stress is the number 1 proxy killer (according to the Institute of HeartMath) not only of our health, but also of our relationships.

We need more than new communication skills and an understanding of our differences to have healthy relationships these days. We also need the nutritional support necessary for positive moods, sustained energy and most importantly, focus.

Without focus, communication breaks down in all relationships and frustration increases.

Without focus in romantic relationships, passion is lost and there is an increase in breakups and divorces. Without focus at work, people are increasingly dissatisfied and bored, often feeling unappreciated, distracted, exhausted or overwhelmed.

Join the Inner Circle and take a seat in the Film Strip.
Go on OFFICIAL SITE to join us, and you'll be emailed a link to join the hangout so you can ask John Gray any question you might have - unscripted, authentic and totally you.

Learn natural remedies that can save you and yours - your relationships, your children's health and get a good start for the new year.

A new update to Google+ takes you back to the conversations that matter.

Shares of posts used to stand on their own, in a way.
If you caught a share in your stream, you wouldn't have a clue what's going on on the original post - do people comment or not. 

You could have been missing great conversations.

The new update allows you to see how many comments did the original post generate and perhaps even nudge you to pop over there to take a better look.

Checking out the original post
Where before you would have clicked on originally shared: to take you to the original post, that link is no longer active.
Instead, you'll notice:
X comments on original post if any comments were made, or View original post if no one has commented yet.

Both are active links that take you to the original post.

What does this mean?
Aside from the fact that Google continue to give us great engagement matrix (which to me indicate where they put their focus on), you can tell in a glance whether you're getting any engagement on your posts in comparison to the original one.

Notice! That I shared a post from +Jaana Nyström and her stats are not showing in my share. Only those of the original post and mine.
