Posts you see in your Google+ Home stream

When you log into Google+, you’ll see posts from the people and pages you follow, as well as the communities you’ve joined, in your Home stream.

With just a few clicks, you can customize this Home stream, so you can see more updates from your Family circle, Sports Collection or Cute Puppies community, and less from other circles and communities; however you want to make your Home stream your own!

Concerned about Unknown People Circling You on Google+? 

Many people who are new to Google+ get concerned by notifications that a person they do not know circled them. The truth is that having someone circle you is completely harmless. Circling on Google+ is not like "friending" on Facebook, which is a two-way relationship. 

The most common concern is that the unknown person might be able to see your private information. They cannot. A person who adds you to their circles can only see information that you share with Public or possibly with Extended circles if that person is in the circles of someone in your circles. People who add you cannot see posts or anything else shared only with your Circles unless, of course, you add them to your Circles.

Another common concern is that unknown people might be able to spam your Stream. That too is impossible. Having you in one of their circles allows people to attempt to share posts with you but the posts will not appear in your Stream unless you add them to your circles. 

That being said, some people simply do not want to be in specific people's circles for one reason or another. You can remove yourself from a person's circles by blocking them. Blocking can cause complications for you, however, so a simple trick is to block a person and then immediately unblock them. (Unblocking does not add you back to their circles.) Using this trick would not prevent them from circling you again, but the odds are excellent that they won't notice that you are no longer in their circles.

If you have further concerns about your privacy on Google+, I encourage you to read the following post about controlling your privacy on Google+:

Good info about the names on Google+ and how changing the name affects other Google products, too.

#Names     #Googleplustips  
 
Create or change your Google+ profile name

"Google+ profiles are meant for individual people. That’s why we recommend using your first and last name on your profile. It will help friends and family find you online, and help you connect with people you know.

If you want to use Google+ to represent something like your business, your band, your family, or your pet, a Google+ page may work better for you.

Important: changing your name on Google+ will change it in all Google products like Gmail and Google Wallet.

You can only change your name three times in 90 days."

See the full discussion here: http://goo.gl/rK6u1C

2) +Lee Graham asked if there was a way to download all his photos at once.

See the full discussion here: http://goo.gl/qzVY2t

3) +Dakota Bond asked how he could find auto backup photos from his previous phone.

How to control the amount of posts you see in your Google+ Home stream:

Tip of the Week: How to adjust the mix of posts in your Home stream

This week's Tip of the Week comes from +Jaana Nyström, a Google+ Top Contributor in the Google+ Help community.

When you log into Google+, you’ll see posts from the people and pages you follow, as well as the communities you’ve joined, in your Home stream. With just a few clicks, you can customize this Home stream, so you can see more updates from your Family circle or Cute Puppies community, and less from other circles and communities; however you want to make your Home stream your own!   

Show more or less from your circles

Want less updates from a specific circle, like your Birdwatching circle, and more from your Runners circle? 

Go to the Home tab, click More in the top menu , and select one of your Circles from the drop down menu. In the In this circle section in the top right, click on the gear icon and choose Show posts in Home stream, where you can select Fewer, Standard, or More posts.

Unchecking Show posts in Home stream mutes the Circle, and you won’t see posts from anyone in that Circle in your Home stream.

Show more or less from a community

Visit one of your communities, and click on the gear above the community’s profile pic. Once again, check or uncheck Show posts in Home stream, and if checked, you can choose   Fewer, Standard, or More posts.

Regardless of your settings, you can always visit a specific circle or community to see everything that’s been shared.

Good info about setting up your birthday on Google+:

#Birthday     #Plushelp     #Googleplustips  
Jaana Nyström originally shared:
 
Google+ and your birth date or birthday

"When you sign up for Google+, we’ll ask you to provide your date of birth so that we can provide you with features like age-appropriate settings when you use Google services and personalised content.

If you already have a date of birth associated with your Google account, you won't be prompted to enter your date of birth.

By default, your date of birth (day and month only) will be visible to people in Your Circles. You can always edit who can see it on your profile."

Problems?

When people are trying to change their birth date in a manner that would change their age from under 18 to 18 or older, or from 18 or older to under 18 - it cannot be done. 

Google does prohibit those changes as part of its enforcement required by laws such as the US Federal Law named the Children Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). 

You can change your age to remain under 18 and wait for that “birthday” (before you can make changes as being over 18) 
or to remain 18 or older, but not to cross that line.

Great post from +Alex Garcia !

What can you do in Google+?
Here are some ideas
Show the world who you are and what you’re passionate about. Choose a beautiful cover photo, share some fun facts, or even add your bragging rights.
http://www.google.com/+/learnmore/profile/
From restaurant directions in Google Maps to breaking stories from your favorite news source, Circles make sharing easy from anywhere.
http://www.google.com/+/learnmore/circles/
From foodies to football fanatics, Communities bring people together around passions. Exchange news and ideas, and make new connections in public communities.
http://www.google.com/+/learnmore/communities/
Enjoy fun new versions of your pictures. You’ll see your photos combined into short animations, joined into panoramas, and merged into group shots where everyone looks good.
http://www.google.com/+/learnmore/photos/
Whether you’re talking just with that special someone or figuring out Friday night plans with the whole gang, Hangouts are like real-life conversations. You can show photos and share how you’re feeling with emoji.
http://www.google.com/+/learnmore/hangouts/
Sort your stream by specific circles to get just your roommates' updates, or go straight to posts from your favorite sports teams. Check out What’s Hot for trending posts, or look "Nearby" to see what’s happening right around you.
http://www.google.com/+/learnmore/mobile/
When you're invited or creating an Event, they'll appear in your Google Calendar, making it easy to keep track of all your plans in one place. And after the event, there is no need to chase down your guests for their pictures – everyone can contribute to one shared photo collection.
http://www.google.com/+/learnmore/events/
Discover great places with reviews from people in your circles. You'll see their recommendations all across Google, including Google+, Search, and Maps.
http://www.google.com/+/learnmore/local/
And if your here just for business take a look at
http://www.google.com/+/brands/
Have a great day!

It's all about you!

#Googleplus  
 
>>::||Oh Hello, There! That's a Rather Dapper Outfit You Have On!||::<<


Greetings and Salutations My Fellow Denizens!

I hope you're all being Excellent to each other!

The first thing to remember is; Google+ is about YOU! Yes, **you. Not me. Not that person from high school you never got a long with. Or someone's baby, (who you secretly think is the ugliest baby you have ever seen).

It's about You, and what You are interested in.

Google plus let's you share things the way you would in person on a more human level.

For instance you wouldn't share photos of you having a bodacious time at the beach on a sunny day, with your work colleagues.

The day you were supposed to be at home dying of the 24hr Flu!!

You would share that with your close friends or perhaps your family(relatives).

And you wouldn't share with your family, an instructive video on how to login to the new systems that they just introduced at work. Along with accompanying documentation. You share that with your work collegues.

This is how Google+ makes sharing a lot more sense. With Circles.
Create as many or as little as you need. To reflect Your social circles, and how you interact with them, in the real world.

Don't worry about views or how many followers you have. That will distract you from being you. Be YOU Be Awesome!

If you have any questions on how Google+ works and what's it all about. Feel free to ask. I do enjoy helping folks how to use this.

If you're free right now, and in Melbourne Australia, and feel like a crash course in Google+ and a friendly conversation, bring your laptop, and a mobile connection to the interwebz. And I'll help you out if you'd like, at a cafe, or a trendy hipster eatery!
Feel free to let me know in the comments below, or +mention me in a private post, I'll be checking my Hangout Invites as well.
