In the last post we looked at Sparks, Google+’s tool for collecting information around an area of interest. Today we’re going to talk about how to share that and other content, and how to determine who’s going to see that content.
Sharing content with friends, family and business associates on Google+ is easy.
At the top of your stream–similar to Facebook’s News Feed–is a box where you can choose to share an update, photos, video or a link.
Let’s say you want to share a video; go ahead and click on video. Then you’ll be given the choice to share video in three different ways:
- upload from your computer,
- grab something from YouTube or
- upload a video from your phone.
Choose the appropriate selection and then you’ll either upload a video or find a video on YouTube.
In either case you’ll be able to add comments and then choose which circles and/or people you’d like to share the video with. Video of your most recent presentation? Share with business associates. Video of your daughter’s birthday? Share that with just friends and family.
This is just one of a series of videos we did on Google+, and we’ve got plenty of other web marketing and social media videos at our YouTube channel. You should check it out. Really, you should.
