When Google+ opened its doors to the public a few weeks ago, people flocked to the nascent social networking site. The service is evolving, and at this point it’s impossible to tell whether it will become a major player in the social networking space. But given Google’s reach, the service’s features (like customized sharing and video hangouts), and growing discontent with Facebook, many people are wondering what Google+ offers that the other social networking sites don’t.
If you’re one of the curious, Google+ First Lookcovers the basics and gets you up and running in the first 12 minutes. In the course, social media expert Adam Metz also shows how to sync your Google+ account with your other social media assets, like LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook, and reviews the service’s privacy controls.
We’ll be keeping a close eye on Google+ as it develops, and we’d love to hear from you if there’s something you’d like to learn about Google+—or any aspect of social media.
