Google Plus First Look: a tip-packed, comprehensive look at Google+ shows you how to join Plus and the kind of initial setup that guarantees a successful and fun-filled experience. The second chapter shows you Circles, Google’s innovative bit of genius that has taken social networking to a new level of control over our own interactions. We’ll see (and I do mean see) how Hangouts (video conferencing) works, and master Streams (where posts go), and Sparks (that jumpstart us posting). Sharing photos and video is the easiest you’ve ever seen, and you will see it in Chapter 5. Nor do you have to leave Plus at home, in Chapter 6 we take our social networking with us on our smartphones. Photos and videos upload automatically, ready for sharing. Finally, we learn how to promote things the right way, the polite way on Plus. This book serves as an indispensible reference to all that and more.
