  3. Hi Carla, I so glad you posted this video on using Google+. I just opened a account and have not had alot of time to play around with it and learn the ins and outs. It sounds like it has alot of interesting features that are different than twitter and Facebook so I will have to get in there and use it. I’m going to add you to my circles. Thanks for the great tips 🙂

  4. Hi Carla,

    I really like the way you explain circles. I find I can get a lot more interesting news at times on Google+ than Facebook. I have no doubt many of your pals like myself really enjoy seeing your videos etc about your dogs. Take care Rosemary

    Nice little article, Carla. I’m still familiarizing myself with Google+ and have just started setting up my Circles. This was extremely helpful, and a nice reminder to do more with this “new kid on the block” among social networks. Thanks!

    Hi Carla!!

    I am still learning about Google+ so this was just what I needed. I actually got an invite and profile when it first came out then all heck broke loose with our family and daughter in law etc., my health etc!! So now that I am adding people to my circles i probably have to go back in and reorganize them. Can you do that? I love your idea of fine tuning them so that you post content to certain people. Much better! You have some great training Carla!

    Warm Regards

    Hey Carla,
    Thanks for the breakdown of Circles on Google+. I think many people are still on the border line whether or not to truly utilize it. I know i do and it has much more quality news than things such as facebook or twitter.

  12. Hi Carla. I have been using Google+ and do enjoy your dog posts! I use the circles and one of the first things I do is go to my circles and give it 15 minutes of my time each day.
    Polls: That is a new one to me. Thank you for introducing that concept because I had no idea.
    This was a great tutorial and I truly believe that Google+ is a MUST!

    Hi Carla,

    you are giving great suggestions on how to use circles.

    Thank you for bringing this to my attention and for the encouragement to get out there, mingle, learn and contribute.
    It is probably just like anything else, once we have established a habit, even if it is just 15 min a day, it soon is easier then we thought.

    Thank you Carla for sharing these tips through your video about Google+ circles. I still haven’t seen a real advantage in using Google+ over my other social sites. However, I am interacting more and sharing a lot more by using the G+ button.

    I am going to be testing out the ‘hangout’ feature on Google+ with another colleague real soon. It seems from the other comments that many others are still finding there way around Google+. So I am glad that you are sharing this information, because the more we know and learn, then more we can incorporate into our business that works best for us.

    Hi Carla,
    I took the FaceBook fanpage widget off of my site in exchange for Google +. I think that since Google is the big player of search engines I might as well utilize their services to the max.

    Hi Justin,
    Can you put both on your site?
    I have found that it is good to give people options and there are tons of people who have not yet jumped on the Google+ bandwagon.

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting, appreciate it!
