Summary:

A useful introduction to the Google+ social networking site, for those who prefer to look before they leap.

On Google+ you’ll find a diverse group of intelligent, passionate, and engaging people who are moving and grooving in an elegant, feature-rich, and secure environment, according to Guy Kawasaki in his book What the Plus! Google+ for the Rest of Us. Google+ enables you to enhance and expand the number of people who share your passions, and interact with them via posts and comments.

The book provides a detailed introduction to the many features and uses of Google+, including:

  • How to master circles and streams
  • How to create a profile which will help you to optimise your Google+ experience
  • How to comment, share posts, and respond to comments in a way which will grow your network of relationships
  • How to use hang outs and chat
  • How to avoid common errors and deal with people who make unwanted comments

I was looking for a book which provided a good overview of how Google+ works, and this book seems to fulfil that requirement. People who prefer to learn a new environment by leaping in and trying it out can probably find out all they need to know about Google+ without reading this book, but the book is a handy manual for those who prefer to get their etiquette in order before taking the leap, in order to avoid the embarrassment of revealing their cluelessness.
