Google Plus just updated their old layout from that huge photo profile that takes almost half of your page to the NEW LOOK layout that you can see there on my video. Anyway, I’ve created a short video to demonstrate to you some of the updates. Including the new tool they added to put “text” on your photo.
Last Friday, I said I was going to start reading 4 of my friends blog and leave a comment. Lo and behold, we suddenly got disconnected from the Internet. There goes my panic attack. “What the heck!” Now what? I can’t access my Internet. And so I restarted my computer a couple of times to see if it was my computer acting up or what. Maybe it’s that DSL again stuck somewhere.
So when my husband came from work, right away I said, “Our Internet is not working!” And so he unplugged our DSL. Went to the the hallway to turn on and off the switches we have back there. Looks like there was nothing wrong with the switch. The DSL weren’t flashing. In order for the DSL to work, the lights must keep on flashing. As soon as the DSL started flashing, our Internet came back LIVE again.
But hey, there was this message “error” from AT&T either we weren’t connected or we haven’t paid our bill. I was disgusted and said to hubby, “The bill is not that much. So how come we’re late again?” He said, “I sent the payment the other day and maybe they haven’t got it yet. And since a lot of people are sending their Christmas Cards early, perhaps our payment is on hostage.”
…and so from there I said, “Guess I have no choice but to finish reading my books on Kindle.”
But you know I didn’t have a chance to finish the Writing Habit Mastery book by Steve Scott. It’s like every single of these books I’m reading I read maybe about 1/4 or 1/3 of the book, unfinished. Sounds familiar? *laughs* Yeah, it’s hard to finish them all in one day. I would have to read at least 3,000 words per minute in order for me to accomplish that.
The Benefit Of Google Plus
Instead, I started reading the Niche Website Success by Lisa Irby. This is the newest book I’ve purchased. Yeah, I said I wasn’t going to buy anymore books coz I can hardly breath with all of the books I bought on Amazon. But you know from reading Lisa’s book I found new nuggets.
I found out the social media Google Plus is on “dofollow.” So when you update…say you posted your new update from your blog or your friends post new updates on your Google Plus, Google will index this post right away. And whatever photo profile is available to them, that’s the one they are going to use.
Google Plus is the only one that is on “do follow” in comparison to other social network.
I know there are tons of social media out there. If you check them all you will be dizzy how many there are out there. And so the only social media that I used most of the time are the big 5: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Linkedin, and Pinterest.
Although Google is the number one search engine, their social media is still behind Facebook. But Google+ is rated number two in social media. Their rapid growth is way much better in comparison to Twitter then when they were just beginning to be more popular. Since we all used Google search engine, anything they launch is not to be ignored. We know anything they launch is excellent. And so far so good. Google Plus is doing pretty good as far as social media is concerned.
Let Friends+Me help with your Google Plus…
Because of the new friendly user Friends+Me, posting on Google Plus is so much easier. Google+ becomes the main resource for all of your social media posting.
Friends+Me is FREE. But their free version gives you about 40 shares a month. However, this is available for premium users who wants to post “unlimited” posts on Google Plus. The Unlimited one cost $49.99/year ($4.99/month). And the Standard one cost $29.99/year ($2.99/month). Now I think this is a lot cheaper than Buffer who charge $10/month and Hootsuite who charge $30/month. I am not affiliated with this product. I’m just happy to share how awesome it is and how makes my life becomes easier.
…also for your latest update, Friends+Me can now schedule your posts without using DoShare. I haven’t tested the new schedule feature just yet and so if you ask me how, I don’t know how. But I will create another video about this as soon as I figure out how to do it. But don’t let me stop you, you can explore this on your own. When you figure it out, let me know how it goes.
