10 Reasons to Give Thanks for Google Plus
Did you realize that if you have a Gmail account, you’re already on Google+? To get to your profile, simply log into your Gmail account, go to the upper right corner, click on the image on the far right, then click Google+ profile. It’s that simple. Be sure you’ve uploaded a nice head shot and filled out the About section as descriptively as possible. It’s so nice having such quick and easy access to a social media account.
Other social networks have become so large and overpopulated that it’s hard to have meaningful conversations. Well, meaningful conversations is where Google+ excels. While a major social network, Google+ is still relatively small, making it a lot easier to chat with others, and to reach potential clients and influencers.
On Google Plus, there are no friend requests. Simply add or remove whomever you want from your circles at any time.
The coolest thing about Google Plus? Circles. Circles actually mimic real-life relationships. It is a natural way to manage your friendships. Choose from Friends, Family, or Acquaintances, and add your own categories to better organize how you connect with others. With Circles you can choose to post to a specific group, or allow all of your Circles to see. Awesome.
