Hey. Just curious if anyone's using g+ yet and what you think of it. I guess businesses have not been invited into the inner sanctum yet. Do you think there will be a shift when/if businesses are? Is the value more about personal interaction, over FB business pages? 

 

Anyone?

Just added you! I've been following your ACI posts on twitter and really love your personal posts. :)

The great thing about Google+ is that you can put people in circles so that you select who gets to see which messages. For instance, I have my husband in Friends, Following, and Family. He also sees anything I post going to Extended Circles or Public. My work friends are in my Work Friends circle and would see special posts related to them and not see things I share with my family and friends unless they are also in those circles.

This feature will be especially helpful for my twenty-something son! Though personally, I'd love to see everything he posts... :)

Yes, you can just select circles like Family and Friends and it will only be seen by people in those groups. But...I want to see your book stuff even tho I'm a work friend... :)

 

Saw this on a forum for business testing: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?hl=en_US&formkey=d...

 

If you want a short url (vanity url) to your Google + page, go to glpus.to & you can cretae one quickly enough, mine is http://gplus.to/htrc

 

I do like the idea of the circles (whether personal or business) --- this info can go to everyone, maybe I will ask a tricky question just to fellow auditors & this special is for past customers only, etc...

 

I did a test post from my blog today - liked the layout & description it automatically gives when you add the link (funny though how it didn't grab the proper picture, but as with everything google - its always in beta / fix mode

 

Another interesting rumor I heard is that if you tie your Picasa site into it, it automatically goes unlimited for no additional charge

from my enewsletter from usefulsocialmedia.com

 

and I quote:

 

(and yes, there's nothing on Google+ but that's because we don't have much info on business pages etc at this stage):

 

So Jennifer, your instincts are correct.

Google+ doesn't offer pages for businesses yet, but you adding their +1 button to your current web site can help you get more clicks.  Now users who are signed in to Google when they search will see which of their Google contacts have +1'ed a web page on their search results, adding instant social credibility to your site/page.

Google+ has caused a bunch of headaches for us (at the Greater Cincinnati Energy Alliance), mainly with duplicate/additional pages:

- when they merged with YouTube, we now have 2 YouTube channels, one with all our videos and views (http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3BBUwnJ7EcR6YC8OqXfkSw), and the other with no videos and no views that is connected to our Google+ profile (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRZftyI2bugK6UHroY3F9Gg). I think we're just going to delete the old and re-upload the videos to the linked one and take the hit for views.

- there is a 'local' page (created from Google maps? (https://plus.google.com/109152577969081099453/about)) that isn't our Google+ page (https://plus.google.com/+GreaterceaOrg/posts)

Anyone else have any struggles with this?

Hey Joshua, we've had the same problem with YouTube and Google+. It is infuriating! In fact, we have two Google+ accounts and two YouTube accounts, and of course they don't match up in terms of activity. I'm still trying to decide how to handle it. I don't want to sacrifice the history I've built on YouTube. I think my duplicate (and inactive) Google+ account can go away. It's just a matter of finding out HOW to delete the duplicate Google+ page, how to delete the duplicate YouTube page, and how to tie together the two active accounts. Oy vey!

Good to hear we're not alone. I think it was such a headache for us that we shelved dealing with it for the time being.

haha I totally understand! This has been on my radar for the past 6 months, and I get filled with such a rage every time I attempt to resolve the issue. I'm hoping the video below provides the final piece of clarification I need to put this to rest. Thank you, Diane, for posting it!
