Google Plus Walkthrough Video

Edit: I’m aware of the audio problems. Time was a factor in getting this video out to its intended audience.

I haven’t written a walkthrough, review or any other commentary of Google+, despite the fact that I’ve been using it since late in the first round of invites. (And just to be clear, when I got invited isn’t the point, the point is, I’ve been using it long enough to form the opinion that is about to follow, late enough to have missed directly interacting with folks like Mark Zuckerberg, but early enough to not be discussing Google+ as a regular topic of conversation.)

Mostly because I feel like it hasn’t been long enough to write a proper review. We’re still in the stages where most people are just talking about the tool and how much they like it, hate it, don’t understand what the fuss is, or think it’s going to change the world. I believe it’s too early to tell.

And now, it’s starting to get lonely in there with mostly techies and a couple of marketing people.

Still, I’m adding people to my own stream sparingly, but I’ve found that this doesn’t mean I can’t invite people. So. If you get my newsletter, you’ll get the link to this page. And if you get the link to this page, you can watch the video for instructions on how to get an invite.

Oh, and if you’re already on Google+, you can follow me. But I’m very slow to add people into my circles. Just saying.

In this video:

  • What is Google+ in a nutshell?
  • What will you see when you accept an invite?
  • A couple of tips on using it.
  • How to get a Google+ invite from me without exposing your email address to the whole world. (Please don’t do that. Follow the directions in the video.)
  • PS – You’ve probably noticed that I haven’t tweeted this link, shared it on Facebook, or even posted it to my flagship blog that gets so much more traffic and attention than this one. That’s because I wanted YOU to have the chance to get the invites before I ask other people to come in.
