Geez. I can't remember what color I was wearing when...I hope I didn't mess up my entire year!  There's a 50/50 chance I was wearing it inside out, though, so that's good, right?

Fun post from one of my favorite off-beat bloggers.

Good to know the "why"- also, we are forced to consider that there is purpose and consequence of everything google-ific. Focus, folks. Or something like that. Wednesday, all!
Google+ Now Counts Lines in a Post

In its ever more intelligent upgrades, Google+ now counts the lines of your post below the fold and displays them next to the traditional "Read more..." link. 

Why? 

1. It's courtesy and a better user experience. It's amazing it hasn't been done before. You're in a hurry to get something done. You've seen a post whose intro has caught your eye. There is a "read more..." now it could be a couple more lines or it could be an essay of 2,000 words. Now you can make up your mind what to do about it.

2. Author Rank signal? If lines are being counted then they are being tallied somewhere. Long posts, short ones and the ones in between are now probably being aggregated as part of the profile and its activity. 

3. It helps foster engagement. This picks up from point 1. A post that has some length, that might have been given up on because time does not allow, can now be bookmarked for later. This increases the value of the post in terms of readership and also increases the likelihood that there will be deeper engagement if someone returns to it specifically rather than quickly skim reading it and adding a +1. 

4. It can aid semantic analysis of profile activity. This ties in with point 2. A profile soon develops patterns of posting and these are a signal in itself that over a length of time actually means something. 

All from a 'tiny' change. Right?

Perfect thought for a Friday afternoon! I so wish I'd seen this when my daughter was little. Read it and smile.

This is a very good thing to do if you have Google pages that meet eligibility requirements. And to plan to do, otherwise!

And, if you haven't circled Stan Bush yet, do! He was the first one to give me a heads up on this.

Hey, shared this on my G+ page, thought you might be interested as well!
Hey, you know I'm a fan of Mr. Bush. He's finally packaging some services to make it easier for us to consider them. This page links to his offer to synchronize your brand images across various social media platforms. 

There's a secret- if your time is best spent doing this yourself (read that as intended, please) then, if you click on any of the options, you'll find a link that gives you the image size requirements. Your Facebook cover photo, etc. All in one place. Like a checklist. Or take Stan up on his offer and get them done for you.

Did you guys see this? It's simple, and I think one of the best "why" responses I've seen. Now- just need to figure out that one big checklist that I need to follow to fully implement!

Before I put my toe in the water here, I thought Facebook was the rabbit hole...and I was so wrong. Facebook is 1 dimensional by compare. That's easy.

Thanks to all who share how to's and especially kudos to +Stan Bush, who helps me see the pleasure of swimming in this ocean.  And he occasionally brings the beach to me....always just in time.
