Pssst Pssst.... keep it a Secret, But Google + invites are working again
Hi Rainers, Family, Friends, Clients ...... We hope you all can keep a secret, but thanks to an Active Rain Friend, our one and only Techno Super Teacher from NY (I am not sure if he wants to be named) We have received an invite to Google +.
So We are on Google +.........We are so excited, and so far so good, we love it, yes there is a learning curve, and yes it means more stuff to fix, learn and figure out, and with all of that added time needed to get it all under control and functioning, we will sleep a few hours less than we already did.....
But Right from the word go, you can see the amazing potential and ability to integrate most if not all what we already do on line, on your phone, and our Advantage XI contact system will sync to it all, and once all the kinks, wrinkle, learning curves and hick-ups are ironed out, this will be a very powerful social media platform and tool for all people and business to use.
After the 1st hour of poking around the system, I can honestly say that the rest of the computer world better pay attention, because I think Google is ready to take on anyone and anything and + 1 any one for the next few years. Google is poised to combine their influence, presence, influence and so much information, that they will likely control the information world, fun and potentially "money" for some considerable time to come. Yes this may also have some very nasty sides, however do we want to swim upstream and fight it, or do we want to swim downstream and find the benefits and best uses for our lives and businesses....... to us the answer is pretty obvious
As mentioned over the past hour or so we played around a little and so far have found
- Setting up and getting started is is almost too easy, wow.
- Uploading Pictures, very slick and integrates with Picasa trouble free.
- Posting and commenting very simple and smooth
- adding links, pictures video etc to post, is a too easy
- Connecting other sites, services etc. done in minutes
- Because most of us are on some form of Google system already getting going is almost Pfunn....
Now we are not trying to tell you what to do here, but it seems to me that getting yourself an invite, from somebody (like a friend in Active Rain......) that is on Google + would be a good thing......
Who knows how long invites will work before Google shuts them down again, for the next wave. Indications are that Google + will likely go totally public by the end of July (in North America)
So if you wanted to receive an invite, you might just want leave a comment to this post and we will see how fast we can get you Google + ed.........
But Keep it a Secret.........;0)
