Google Plus: The Extensive List of Database, Resources and Helpful Tips

If you haven’t get on Google+, you really should join it now. Google+ is growing more rapidly than Facebook and Twitter combined.

As you may already know, Twitter is great for getting immediate perspectives on news and events. It is for real-time perspectives.

Facebook, on the other hand, is the way to learn what’s going on in the lives of people that you already know (friends, relatives and colleagues). It is for people.

But Google Plus, it enables you to pursue your passions with people who you don’t know (strangers). It is for passion.

How to Get Start on Google+

Here are a few quick tips to getting start on G+:

1. If you don’t have a Gmail account, get one, its free.

2. Fill out your bio, your real name (not a business name), links, and add a profile photo to your new Google+ profile.

3. Create a few circles with select individuals whose post on topics that interested to you and get familiar with it – they work similarly to Facebook friend lists. After you get it done, you can view your stream of content filtered by these lists, you can also publish content to specific lists, feel free to circle me.

4. Then browser below this mega list for the information of G+.

Below this collection is large. Thanks to Johnathan Chung for the awesome work, here you go – an extensive database of Google+ resources.

SECTION 1: GETTING STARTED (http://goo.gl/syrqi

“Quick Start” is composed of 1-2 page high-yield infographics containing the minimal technical information useful for the simplest of G+ experiences. This is for people who like the least amount of introduction and who like to learn as they go.

“Overview” contains G+ tips, personal recommendations, user experiences, and describes the overall G+ environment in a way that is more elaborate than “Quick Start” but less comprehensive than the full “Guides” section.

SECTION 2: GUIDES (http://goo.gl/GgidI)

“Beginner Guides” have step-by-step walk-through, descriptions, and advice for the most important basic features of G+ to maximize your experience quickly without getting too involved or potentially overwhelmed. This is a well-rounded introduction to G+.

“Comprehensive Guides” contain an enormous amount of dense information, some of it repeated within other detailed guides. If you are looking to learn the in’s and out’s of G+, read through these to pick up on everything from basic to advanced tips and tricks.

SECTION 3: CIRCLES (http://goo.gl/WGvnh)

Delves into circle management and maintenance. It is important to stay organized with circles because they decide how your information is presented in the Stream and how privacy (“who sees what”) is controlled.

SECTION 4: PHOTOS (http://goo.gl/sy2sS)

Items on uploading, sharing, organizing, and customizing pics.

SECTION 5: HANGOUTS (http://goo.gl/btUyc)

Many examples of creative uses of Hangouts and Hangout resources.

SECTION 6: FINDING PEOPLE (http://goo.gl/o1HA9)

Provides a list of sites for where and how to search for G+ users based on a variety of criteria and interests. Some of these sites are also useful for maintaining and sharing public circle lists and for viewing user statistics. “List Names” section is composed of aggregated lists of people found in particular G+ niches and communities.

SECTION 7: BLOGS & NEWS (http://goo.gl/0jQzW)

Provides general and comprehensive information focused on what’s happening in Google+.

SECTION 8: EXTENSIONS, TOOLS, & APPS (http://goo.gl/1FyBK)

These tools are meant to enhance or change the G+ user experience. Some browser extensions may stop working properly when Google makes updates and changes to G+. Please note: use of these extensions and services are “as is” and at your own discretion. Several extensions may ask for permission to get access to your browser activity and G+ profile.

SECTION 9: PRIVACY (http://goo.gl/NSPGY)

Provides resources to keep up privacy and security on G+.

SECTION 10: SUGGESTIONS & FEEDBACK (http://goo.gl/1TLNk)

Ways to offer constructive criticism to Google for improving G+.

SECTION 11: GRAPHICS & ICONS (http://goo.gl/Gi3Cb)
