It’s been 2 weeks, and Google+ has captured the attention of the tech community in a very real way. Since the initial invite seed, hundreds of articles about the service have been written, and it has been the talk of every news source I have seen. Facebook responded to Google+ within a week by offering similar services and promising much more on the way, and Google’s been tweaking the service nonstop. Despite Google’s previous failures, it would appear that this will soon become a legitimate social network in direct competition with Facebook.
By JR Raphael, ITworld July 29, 2011 07:00 AM ET Google+ is all the rage right now. Even under its limited-invite "field trial" phase , the social sharing service is growing in leaps and bounds, with oodles of new users joining every day and even more champing at the bit to get in. Most of us, however, are only beginning to scratch the surface of what Google+ can do; like many Google products, G+ is brimming with advanced features and untapped tweaks. That's why I decided to put together this massive list of Google+ tips and tricks.
Google has finally rolled out Google+ which is not yet another service like Google Wave and Buzz, but is an amazing and power packed social networking website which is deemed to rise very high and compete with today’s biggies ‘Facebook and Twitter’. I tried out Google+ after getting an invite and found it really interesting, may it be its simple and cool design or the variety of features it offers. One has to accept that Google has done some really good and hard work in bringing out Google+. After all, it was their long time wish to have a Google Social Network that can dominate over the web. # Here are some useful Google+ Tips shared by Matt Cutts and users who responded to Matt’s post at Google+. All these tips are handy and let you experience the actual power of Google+ (PLUS).
Although Google+ has just born for a few days in a limited trial field, it already has over 10 million users who share 1 billion items every day. The following are 101 tips for you to hack Google+, whether you are already a user or not. Bonus: You can get an invite by leaving a comment in this post . Circles You can add anyone into a circle, even though they are not Google+ users.
I’ve never been a fan of following people. Instead I prefer to follow topics or key words. It provides a more holistic overview of the conversations which surround those topics. For example, if I follow a group of individuals who love social media I will likely think social media is always awesome (it isn’t).
Much has been said about how Twitter and Facebook should be worried about Google’s behemoth social network which gained 10 million followers in 16 day, as compared to Twitter’s 780 days, and Facebook’s even longer 852 days. But like any new service online, people may be signing up and doing very little with their accounts. In fact, they’re probably the same people who signed up for a Twitter account, updated once with something along the lines of “I’m just trying to figure this Twitter thing out,” and disappeared just as fast leaving in their wake a sad little egg avatar and little else.
