Google+ Poll

Google+ Poll Results

Here are the results of an informal Google+ Poll that was conducted over the last 24 hrs.

We had 590 responses and this is an informal poll, so probably lots of flaws, but the results show pretty much what you 'd expect.

Enjoy.






Google+ Tip - Tagging

Just saw this great tip from JD Thomas:

Just a tip for some of the newer G+ joiners. When using the +Name method to tag a person in a post or in the sharing control line, you can use any part of their name.

If you have a lot of Williams or Michaels in your circles, the way I do, you can more easily tag them using +Lastname so it finds the correct person more quickly.



Thanks JD!

Google+ Posting Tip - The Drop Down Menu

Some people can get overwhelmed by the comments on g+.

Luckily there's a feature to help you out.

At the top right of your post, you can see a small arrow in a circle. Clicking on this arrow reveals a drop down menu with tons of options.






Useful, isn't it? You can edit your post, moderate comments, disable them and even prevent reshares.
