As you probably know, I’m extremely active on Google+, and I think you’ll really enjoy it too. But I think people don’t realize how much the service really has to offer. People set up a Google+ account, don’t see any of their friends there, and then abandon it. The trick is that you need to circle really interesting people. Suddenly, your stream will fill with amazing content and compelling conversations – you’ll be hooked… like me.
Don’t worry that your friends aren’t on Google+. We’re there, and we’re more interesting.
And just to sweeten the deal, remember that we record every episode Astronomy Cast as a live Google+ Hangout. And now I’ve got access to Google+ Hangouts on Air, so we’ll be doing more live space and astronomy discussions, like the one we did yesterday with Phil Plait, Alan Boyle, Nancy Atkinson, and Emily Lakdawalla.
So let me help make this really easy for you with 3 simple steps:
- Set up a free profile on Google+. Already done that? Skip this step.
- Import my science circle, filled with 200+ active science journalists, bloggers and enthusiasts
- Import my space circle, filled with 100+ bloggers, space agencies, and even an astronaut
At this point you should have 300+ amazing people to follow with very interesting conversations, you’ll be notified when we’re recording new Hangouts, and you can chat with me, Phil and most of the Universe Today team.
Here’s a great video that explains more about how to do this.
P.S. I know what you’re thinking, but I’m not getting compensated by Google+. 🙂
