Google+ For Beginners: Fill Out Your About Section Now

No Comments

Heard a lot about Google+ yet in your part of the universe?

In its first two weeks and in a BETA-only state of being (invitation-only, too!) it’s gained 10 million users. Quite impressive when you compare it to Facebook’s first YEAR of growth, which was 5.5 million users in one YEAR. Granted, way back then, in 2005, social networking wasn’t in full steam mode and we weren’t as connected as we are now. But still, quite impressive, Google.

Many, many blog posts exist with tips about how to use Google+ and I’ll be adding to the pile soon, myself. However, I felt it was urgent to get this short post out today because I’m seeing more and more people coming onto Google+ without proper profiles.

Fill out your “About” section before you start “plusing” and “circling” and “hanging out,” folks.

For those of us who already had Google Profiles, our “About” sections are already filled out.

Another advantage of having your “About” section filled out is that when people Google your name, they’ll see your Google Profile in the search results. This is especially helpful if you have a common name because your photo appears in the listing:

Be sure to fill it out completely, including your website link, blog link, and all your social network links.

By the way, if you need a Google+ invitation, right now, I have 8 left. So, contact me with your email address and I’ll send you an invitation.
