3 User Cases for Google Brand Page Relevant Stream

For businesses live online in real time can mean different things, depending on how they engage with their audience. If Google Maps, Google Search, Google My Business have their updated "To Do" lists, Google+ Brand pages keep the personal key to interacting and communicating across shared interests. Isn't this just the same in the offline world?

How To Disable Comments & Reshares On Your Profile Pic

#GooglePlusKnowledge
How To Disable Comments & Reshares On Your Profile Pic

First you need to view your profile.

1.) On Your Profile, Click Your Profile Picture

Next, you will see the 'lightbox' view of your profile pic. Unfortunately there is no options to change your settings in this screen. Click the reshare icon in the bottom right.

2.) Reshare The Post Privately

So, you need to reshare the post, privately to yourself, in order to get to the original post of your profile pic. (You may skip this part if you already have a link to the 'post' from a notification.) Select a private audience, collection, or simply yourself from 'see more' in the audience selector.

3.) Refresh and go to "Originally shared" Post

You will need to refresh your profile to view the 'new' privately shared post. There you will see the second line of blue text at the top of the new post indicating it is a reshare.
If you click that text link, it will take you to the original post. Even if you did not actually share your profile photo as a post, this post will exist, although it's unlikely to be displayed on your profile.

4.) Click on Post Options and select disable Comments and Reshares

Once on the original post you will be able to click on the 'post options' (three vertical dots in the top right). Where you will have the option to disable comments and reshares.

Edit Instructions for mobile apps have been requested:
On Android, view your profile, tap on the profile pic, wait for photo to load, then select the 'share' option to share as a private post, the same as the above instructions.

On iOS, go to profile, tap profile pic, then tap options, select view on web, tap options and select choices.

-----

You may also wish to consider doing this with all past profile pics, or alternatively, you can quickly delete all your older profile pics via the Google Album Archive. Though the archive only gives options to delete, or download images, no other settings are located there: https://get.google.com/albumarchive

options and screens may vary slightly using the mobile app, this tutorial was created using the desktop interface

Epic Hangout with +David Amerland and #TheSniperMind people
Thursday, Sep 7, 10am Pacific - only at https://youtu.be/m1qihwLDxvk

This is the 4th (and possibly last) hangout in the series, with the author of #TheSniperMind book, which will be released on Nov 7, 2017 and is currently available for pre-order on Amazon via https://goo.gl/ixKaBQ, at 46% Off retail!

In addition to +David Amerland and myself, we will have a number of special guests, who are in the process of reading The Sniper Mind or, like me, already inhaled the book and its goodness and are ready to talk about it publicly.

If you're looking for potent ways to improve your business (and yourself) - look no further than this very special book. And if you're looking at the book - you'll want to see this (and the 3 prior) hangouts on the subject.
