I found a great way to get started with Google+ and I would like to quickly share it with you.
I admit, while I signed up right away when Google+ started in 2011, I was very careful about investing too much time into the new tool. This was mainly for two reasons:
- I had wasted too much time with Google Wave (although I have fond memories playing with Wave with my friend Hans)
- The hype and the pointless discussion about “Will Google+ kill Facebook?” turned me off
However, over the last couple of months I have noticed that I use G+ more and more. In general the level of engagement reminds me of the early days of Twitter and other platforms before marketers screwed it up too much. I also like some of the really cool features – especially Google Hangouts.
I purposely don’t get into discussions about the future of one platform over the other or the amount of users a tool has. That being said – because Google+ is used to string all other Google services together I don’t think the number of active users is accurately counted.
There are also more and more helpful resources out there.
Today I found a great list of Google’s own instruction videos to share with you. The list was compiled by +Denis Labelle who works for Google so I can only assume these resources are verified, fresh and relevant.
This is a great way to get started with Google+!
I will create step by step instructions over at SocialMediaCoach.me as soon as I can but please find the whole collection below.
