Cracking article.
 
How To Not Be a Sheep on Google+
"Every man can tell how many goats or sheep he possesses, but not how many friends." - Marcus Tullius Cicero

If you have a look at Social Media Networks like Facebook, Twitter or even Google+ you'll notice very soon that a lot of people only care about the metrics.

Somehow it became very important how many "Friends" you have, how many "Likes" you get and how many comments LOLs, ROFLs and YOLOs appear when you post a picture of your breakfast, cats, dogs, children or duckface. Social Media slowly became a competition - not only for companies, but also for private persons.

Everything had to "go viral". People began to ask their friends why they didn't "Like" their last post at 3am in the morning, others started to "unfriend" each other and out of a need people began to post only things their "friends" could like. People began to adjust their opinions and behavior and tried to be part of the herd - for the sake of a "Like".

With all their "Friends", Likes, Shares and Comments a few people became successful - successful sheeps, surrounded by sheeps. It's a trap. Don't do this on Google+. Don't care about the numbers.

RTFM - Read The F°°°°°° Manual

Google+ offers a lot of new possibilities to connect and communicate with other people and to share links, pictures or videos. Srsly, first of all, read the manuals. Invest some time and make your own life and other people's life on this platform easier.

◘ The Official +Google+ Help Center http://goo.gl/IklrHQ
◘ The Official +Google+ Help Community http://goo.gl/4C0w5d
+Denis Labelle's List of Google+ Tips http://goo.gl/rIeAvo

+Plus Your Business! Community http://goo.gl/Usl0NH
+Stephan Hovnanian's tips for Google+ Profiles http://goo.gl/sQm5Aq

◘ You don't want to read? Then take the +Plus Your Business! Quickstarter Video Course on http://www.plusyourbusiness.com/google-plus-quickstarter/

You have a specific problem with Google+ and need additional help? The communities i mentioned above are the places to go. People like

◘ +martin shervington
+Jaana Nyström
◘ +Ronnie Bincer
+Stan Bush
+Peggy K
◘ +John Skeats
+Ayoub Khote 

and many others are always helpful there and post a lot of #GooglePlusTips . Don't be shy, ask.

Right now you can use the hashtag #PYBacademy  to find more posts from

◘ +Mike Allton and many more.

-----------------------------------------------
Now, Leave Your Herd

There is a high probability that you won't find your family, friends, colleagues or schoolmates here - and probably they won't arrive here very soon. Take it as a chance, not as a hindrance. 

This platform offers you the possibility to find a lot of new, like-minded people who share the same enthusiasm for anything you always wanted to say or do, but never said or did because your "friends" didn't "like" it. Moreover it's highly probable that you will find people in other cities, regions or countries who have the same interests or hobbies like you.

Take the red pill (http://goo.gl/SH0ePH) and see how deep the rabbit hole goes.

-----------------------------------------------
Keep your eyes open!

Use the search function of Google+ and search for topics and communities first, not for people. If you search for interesting people, use an external tool like +CircleCount to find them. +Circloscope and +NOD3x are not only for professional users and provide access to a new level of connectivity.

Take your time, read other people's posts and don't forget the comments. Never forget the comments. Never ever forget the comments. The comment threads on Google+ are the part where the magic happens, literally. 

You'll find serious discussions with one, two or up to five hundred comments. You'll see how people put all their knowledge, passion and enthusiasm in their comments and discuss a certain topic for several days. You'll see how people fight for their opinion and even without engaging you have the great opportunity to be part of the audience.

If you like a specific post or comment, have a look at the profile of the person. Again: take your time, Google+ is a marathon, not a sprint. You're not here to collect as many profiles as possible in a short time and you're not here to become - proverbially - the shepherd of a new herd of followers. This is not a competition and most of all this is not a popularity contest. If you think that it could be interesting to follow a specific person or page, add them to your circles. Otherwise: don't do it.

#protip : Most of all this is no battlefield, too. If you feel uncomfortable with a situation - leave. Unless you are confident you don't have to fight, people always meet twice. If you are attacked by a person for no reason: block him/her. If you attack others: be prepared to be blocked, too ;-). After a while you'll understand the dynamic of connections and relationships and perhaps you'll see that others - people you didn't even know - defend your position if they think it's worth it.

-----------------------------------------------
What's next?

There are hundreds of posts on Google+ and the links i mentioned above which give you a perfect advice what can be done next. Create content, use the editing tools of +Google+ Photos, watch or join Hangouts or Communities, do whatever you want.

Be weird. Throw away your newspaper and spend your Sunday Morning with +David Amerland's #davidamerlandsundayread . Get up from your sofa and do one of +Neila Rey's Workouts. Explore art collections from around the world with the +Google Art Project or join the Ford Photo Community (http://goo.gl/1yxixs, h/t +Robert Wallis). You could read something from +Alvin Stearns (http://goo.gl/U9iHVZ) who should write a book ...

You are no sheep. You can do whatever you want ;-)
