Ready to Figure Out Google+?

We are too! If you’ve been thinking, “I’d better make time to play with Google+,” let’s go through some of the tutorials and cheat sheets together.

What does Google+ Have Over Facebook, Twitter, Skype, etc.?

Good question. Let’s walk through the features and discuss.

  • Sparks – Your interests, or topics you can “follow”
  • Circles – Groups of people that you might want to notify about certain things. Like folks who live in your city, your work friends versus your colleagues who aren’t so friendly, or your family.
  • It’ll make better sense when the people you need to talk and work with every day are in it, too.
  • Hashtags?
  • Video chat? Does it work?
  • Who are all these dirtbags who are adding me to circles? Should I block them?
  • Our favorite: Does our business need to participate?

Light lunch will be provided. Feel free to bring your own lunch, though.

Coming in September – Visual Note Taking

On Friday, September 2, Kate Hayward will present a mini-workshop on Visual Note Taking. No actual artistic ability is required – you’ll be amazed at how using both halves of your brain together gives your ideas and notes new energy. Yep, Labor Day weekend is that weekend.
