Right now, Google Plus does not play well with other applications. For example, foursquare users can have their check-ins automatically appear on Facebook, but there is no way to accomplish this on Google Plus. Google is obviously working on releasing an API, but it’s not there yet.
The search box allows you to search the whole of the Google Plus social network. Just type in any search terms you want and when you get the results back you can choose to filter them by ‘People and Pages’, ‘Communities’, ‘Posts’, ‘Hangouts’ and more.
Locate More People: You can find out more and more people on your Google plus account. You just need to login in your account, click on view all link option and then click on find people. This will show you options of people either who have same interest like you or who are friends of your friends. You may not even know them personally. So it’s your choice who you want to add from the suggested list. You can also import contacts from your Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail accounts by uploading your address book.
One of the most important concepts on Google Plus is using the ‘+’ key to +mention someone. It’s very useful because it will notify the person that you +mention them in a post or comment. To +mention someone, just type + followed by their name.
Communities are one of the most exciting parts of Google Plus. They are all themed around a central topic (e.g. classic cars, mathematics, psychology, papercraft, gardening etc.) and are constantly updating, interactive forums where people can share useful content, discuss ideas and opinions, ask questions and much more.
Yes, Google is commonly referred to as the search-engine giant but so far, only other users are searchable within Google Plus, but on Facebook, all public content is searchable. So, let’s say we want to find reactions to a breaking news story. You can do that on Facebook, while right now, it’s not possible on Google Plus. That’s pretty ironic.
Circles are central to Google Plus. A circle is essentially a group of people (followers). Circles allow you to share your content with the right groups of people. They are how you, and the people you are interested in, follow each other.
Comment on other’s Updates: Make the conversation more interesting by commenting on the latest updates on Google plus. In this way you can also contact lots of new bloggers and targeted audience from your niche.
Hi CloudExplorer…This is a really great Hub by you that vividly compares and contrasts both Facebook and Google Plus pages. I personally myself is not much familiar with the Google Plus pages and have always preferred Facebook over that. You are right in saying that Google Plus still needs to catch up with the huge amount of members of Facebook. Undoubtedly Google Plus holds great potential but what i really feel they still have a long way to go to attract others in terms of many things.
Moving past the when Google did not outline its brand page policy for Google Plus, causing companies and organizations to create pages that were subsequently deleted — from a user standpoint, some of the information shared by brands on their Facebook pages is actually of interest and useful. It’s not all, “Please buy our product.” Google must clarify its policies on brand pages sooner, rather than later.
The ‘What’s Hot’ button is one of the main ways to find new and exciting content on Google Plus. It will highlight some of the best new links and information, together with what is trending highly right now. It can also suggest interesting communities, pages you might like and more. It’s a fun way to waste a few hours!
