If you haven’t already heard by now Google has launched a brand new social network called Google Plus . Google plus is Google’s third attempt at entering the social media space, after two failed attempts with Orkut and Google Buzz. I have spent about one week in the platform, and have found it to be an amazing experience, due to the openess of the network, and the wide range of features available to share content, engage with other peoples content, and further build my personal brand while driving lots of traffic through my own sites at the same time. Right now Google is only allowing personal profiles, but will be releasing business profiles very soon.
Now that Google + is starting to take off we thought that you would like to find out some simple tips and tricks to assist you when using the new social networking service, in this article we will show you some neat little features and also tell you about some shortcuts / hotkeys. Firstly when you visit Google + the site responds to certain keys being pressed, if you press the spacebar you will scroll down the Stream, if you press Shift + Spacebar you will scroll back up.

To do that, you just need to edit the .htacess file that’s in your website’s root directory, and add the following line at the end: Redirect /+ http://plus.google.com/ yourid /

Guide updated January 18, 2012 Google+ : It's the hot social network on the block. In just a few months, Google's competitor to Facebook and Twitter has amassed more than 40 million users , and its growth hasn't stopped .

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.
