Giving Google plus a second shot

Giving Google plus a second shot

I’m a social media fanatic. Love socialising and connecting with people. Unfortunately my past experience with google plus was kind of disappointing. Well I’m bored kind of unemployed and with time to spare. So I’m giving google plus a second chance.

Since I’m a mobile blogger and social trender, I use google plus on the mobile site. I don’t have an app because blackberry doesn’t have an app yet. Anyway the mobile site is pretty clean and neat better than facebook I think. Just have a problem connecting with people there.

Its seems people only use google plus profiles to share links and share their brands. I’m kinda guilty of that to. Maybe if I added more peoples personal profiles on google plus I’d have more interaction. Also people hardly up date their profiles unless their a popular brand. I find google plus to be boring but sharing my links there do rank up in google search engines.

To be honest I think google plus has a lot of potential but maybe we need to give it a little more time before people actually get into it or catch with the trend. As for me I’ll still use it but not as much as use I twitter or my wordpress blog. Google plus still has a long way to go before anyone really takes it seriously.

Smart phones are made for more than just texting, let me tell you why?

Smart phones are made for more than just texting, let me tell you why?

What smart phone do you have? A blackberry, nokia, android or iphone. Well if you just using it for bbm ,instant messaging, facebook and twitter then don’t deserve a smart phone. Wait let me explain why? Smart phones have evolved to mini computers doing almost anything a pc can do? Wanna know more!

Smart phones means smarter apps. Apps that have higher capabilities. Now days smart phone apps can edit photos, edit videos, 3D gaming, high speed internet, video chats, edit spread sheets and word documents. Also you can read books in pdf and epub formats.

Had enough! Well I’m not done yet. Smart phones are also adapted for everything online made mobile. For example? There are apps for managing money. Apps for fitness and health. Banking apps. You wanna blog professionally straight from your smart phone! Well you can with wordpress, tumblr and blogger apps made to manage your blogs with ease.

Let’s not forgot social media. There are apps for every social network like facebook, twitter, gplus, pinterest, myspace and instagram. The list can goes on. That’s why I get pissed when I see people using their smart phones only for texting, when there’s so much more they could do with it. it pays to be curious to experiment with apps and have fun in the process.

#question: To the audience? What are you doing to get the most out of your smart phone.

Getting social on google plus

Getting social on google plus

Today I can’t imagine life without social media. Facebook and twitter are my daily addictions, other than my wordpress blog. Google plus just doesn’t seem as interesting to me as other social networks. So I decided to play around with it a bit more in depth and discovered that google plus is pretty cool if you using it to read up on things you have interests in, for example : careers you into, hobbies, sporting, technology and internet trends.

Finally I decided to hook up my Google plus with things related to my career , goals and things that inspire me. Finally I can separate my career and hobby stuff from my facebook and twitter, making my life more organised. Google plus is still new and not many average internet users use it ,but I recommend it if you got a business, or you studying.

Right now google plus isn’t the best social network , but it will soon get there.
