Thanks!

Quick question: Do you check your email first thing after you wake up? If you don't - how long do you wait?

Be honest. :-)

About 1-2 hours after I wake up, and I brush my teeth first too :)

Good points. I am on Tumblr personally but haven't played around with it for over a year. Make sure to share your progress with Tumblr for your school as I'm sure others would be interested in your experiment. :-)

Wasn't sure if you had seen the latest guest post at the blog. If your school uses Instagram, or is thinking about it, you might want to give it a read. There are also some interesting comments on the post.
In this guest post by Mike Leembruggen he asks should schools bother with instagram.

Hi Tribe,

I don't know about you but I really enjoy Google+ but I've noticed that this Community hasn't really taken off. I would like this group to become more and in order to raise awareness I would like to write a blog post with answers from this Tribe.

If you could answer the following questions about Google+ in the comments section of this post I'll include your answers in my blog post.

Name:
School:
Title:
What I like about Google+:
What I don't like about Google+:

Thanks for your help!

Liza Fisher Norman, Turnaround Marketing Communications and InspirED School Marketers, owner. Like: I like the interface a lot. Don't like: I don't have the sharing aspect down and while I know it's a no-no, I tend to send one post (usually formatted for Twitter) to all channels and  then it looks goofy on some (Google+ being one of them). Also, I manage at least two social media entities, and Google+ holds the least engagement for me. (Chicken or the egg, I know.) I'm looking forward to your attempt at making me a believer ;-)

In my latest blog post I announce the end of my Weekend Update blog post.

Don't worry...I still plan on blogging and podcasting. :-)
After almost four years I've decided to stop writing my Weekend Update blog post. This post will help explain the end of the Weekend Update.

I would like more #indyschool  people to join, understand, and use Google+. I'm not really sure how to do that so I'll start with a blog post. :-)

I'd like to ask each member of this group:

"What's one thing you like about Google+?"

Please answer in the comments section below and plan to use your answers in my blog post giving credit to you.

Thanks!

As a side +Brendan Schneider the click through rates via Google Plus Post ads show a 2-4% (sometimes 10%) hit rate as opposed to .5% for normal display adverts. Early days but interesting.

It's not your break anymore--sorry I'm late to the party. I'm reading The Power of Visual Storytelling by Ekaterina Walter. Recommend.

Hope you find it helpful!
