Why Your Love Life Sucks w/+Kayla McKinney is back!

We hope you all enjoy learning how to avoid your Coworker stalker! Please make sure to tell +Kayla McKinney good job and subscribe to our YouTube channel to see Kayla, +Kaylee Goins and +Jordan Walker!
Why Your Love Life Sucks is back, y'all!

Two weeks ago, I told you all that you should never ever date your coworker for one very important reason: gross. In the comment hullaballo, my pals +Matt Lerner and +Lionel Lauer recounted their own coworker disasters, which involved being stalked, probably because they're such super cool dudes. (Who can blame those gals?!)

If you've found yourself in a coworker stalking pickle, I've got two tricks you can use to get out of it. As always, circle +SocioloG+ so you can be sure to never miss an episode from me, +Kaylee Goins, +Jordan Walker, +Johnathan Chung, and +Ryan Crowe.

Also, we're looking for vloggers! If you've got a mad hankerin' to get your YouTube on, shoot me (or any of those names above) a message. And keep those questions a-comin'!

Why Your Love Life Sucks w/ +Kayla McKinney
dating coworkers is no bueno

Like picking on your significant other? Of course you do! Kayla details the dangers that accompany dating a co-worker including by not limited to: workplace fantasy, odd fetishes and too much "quality" time together.

And remember, like Kayla says, "Go all STD on her" and share this video... she really has to work on her analogies.

How Not to Do Things w/ +Kaylee Goins
how to not be well

Our snively, sickly resident Ginger shows off her vulnerable side (no, not her tender emotions) and helps you all to discover the best ways to get sick quick! This is useful for any of you who want to call in sick to work or school but can't stand the thought of lying!

Kaylee's advice includes go streaking in the cold rain, not sleeping at all, and hanging out with other cess pools of sickness (aka Friends!).

#sgplus #sgtv #sociologyplus
Ok, don't hate me for how sick this video is. Also, why do I always have the most ridiculous faces in the video still shot. Sigh.

Great find by +Denis Labelle and write up by +Miguel Rodriguez
The Google+ Mindset
A look into the psychology of those posting on Google+

"The thesis of this article occurred to me while analyzing the discussions between the people defending Google+, versus the (mostly) journalists who “don’t get it”. Is there a deep-seated human need that is better satisfied by Google+ than by other social media sites? The motivation principles of Mastery, Autonomy and Purpose described by Daniel Pink, RSA Animate - Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us, might be part of the answer." - +Miguel Rodriguez
