Google Circles: Keep Friends and Business Separate
I am in LOVE with Google Circles and I am so excited about sharing with you my reason for being tickled pink about it. Have you ever been a little reticent about posting something because you realized it might just be too much information for a co-worker or someone in your church family?
In the example above, the subscriber has decided to create 3 different classifications for the people in their life. Nana and Grandpa may not want to see a picture of you flanked by 3 women on either side, but it would probably go over really well with your San Diego peeps. Maybe you came across a nude baby photograph of yourself you would like to share with Nana, but not the San Diego peeps. Google circles makes it all possible. Also, after you've selected the recipient circles, for your post, you are able to send out a notification. If you have a gmail account, in addition to the email that goes out, there is a counter at the top of the page indicating that aside from the ton of emails you get everyday, this one is probably important.
To create your circles, all you have to do is drag one of the squares down into the center of the circle of your choice. You may even want to include some of them in more than one circle. And ohhhhh...before I forget, if you get tired of one circle, just throw it in the garbage.
Google Circles is a component of the Google + platform and it allows you to share photos, videos and music tracks.
When you get a chance, get on over there and check it out to see what's going on. It might take a little playing around to figure it out, but is definitely worth it. If you are an artist or promoter with a product you are attempting to sell, I am suggesting you take the time asap to discover another way to deliver appealing announcements to your contacts.
May God Bless you in all you do!
