Free Webinar: Getting Started with the New Google+


On December 7th, I joined +Michael Daniels in his Top Contributor Hangouts series to talk about how to get started with the new Google+.  I talked about how to set up your profile, find interesting content, and  post your own content.

Whether you are new to Google+ or a long time Plusser getting used to the new interface, you should learn something new.  And if you are still using the Classic Google+ interface, now is the time to give the new web experience a try!

Here's the general outline of what we discussed.

1. Setting up your Google+ Profile
2. Populating your Home stream
       * Finding and following Collections
       * Following People and Pages
       * Organizing people into Circles
       * Communities

3. Engaging with posts: Plus, Comment, Share

4. Posting
         * Create your own Collections
         * New posts, Text and Plus Mentions
         * Share photos and images
         * Share links
         * Create a poll
         * Post settings

5. Notifications

You can watch the recording and join the chat by signing in here (it's free, with registration). I've also embedded the video below.

We covered a lot of topics in an hour, so I've shared my slides below (with a few edits for clarity). You can peruse them at your own pace. To get the full description of each slide, view the speaker notes.


    • To view full screen, click the full screen button.
    • To see the slide description and notes, click the gear, then select "Open speaker notes"

  1. Excellent presentation & great tips!
    When I invite people to use G+, I often get a lot of questions, I can now share your slideshow and the video to help my friends become acclimated with all that G+ has to offer.
    Thank you Peggy & Michael.
