Advantages of Collections on Google Plus

Are you a Google Plusser? Why not? Didn't create an account because there were predictions that Google management was considering kicking the network to the curb? Yes.  There was a buzz about that.

Several years back when Google Plus social media network was still in test mode, I received an invitation via eMail to participate in the project. When the decision was made to open to the public, I was already on board and they even gave me a custom URL for my profile.  My G+ experience has been very pleasant, although there are probably loads of features I have not learned how to use.

One of the features I have learned to use is the Collections.



Google Plus Collections is Google's answer to Pinterest users. Pinterest boards are for you to arrange your interests in an orderly fashion.  G+ Collections help you arrange your G+ posts in an orderly manner.  Why would you need to do that?  Ever try to search for one of your posts or links that you shared into the stream from a few years back?


All my G-Plus activity goes back several years. Tried going to my profile posts stream and scrolling down. That didn't work. If you scroll down your profile page looking for old posts you will discover that the post stream only goes back so far. You say to yourself: “How can this be? Have my posts disappeared?” Of course not! This is Google we're talking about! If Facebook can share your memories with you from years gone by, then there had better be a way to search for and find your old Google Plus posts.

Found a way to do that. It wasn't exactly simple. But it was doable. It is not easy to explain the process, so I'll direct you to the post where I found the information which I saved for future reference in my G+ Collections created for my business page called Tips and Advice for Business (Work-at-Home, etc.):





So how does this all tie together? If you find your old Google Plus activity and move it to your Collections activity, for your profile or your business page, then later you can just go there and retrieve your old posts. As a test, moved an old post from 2012 to a collection on my profile. View here.

So! You can probably conclude that although G+ Collections are good for organizing your Plus activity, in my opinion, the primary advantage of maintaining Collections on Google Plus is that you can retrieve your activity history.

Side Note:
  • All of my G+ Collections are set to Public, so you if you want to look at how my collections are organized, you can view the content even if you are not a member of the network. My Writings, My Work, My World, My Way is my collection which appears on my profile.  (In comparison, you have to have an account with Pinterest to view my various pinboards.  My profile shows 57 boards which include group boards.  Home Business Works on Pinterest.)

Stop the insanity! Keep Google+ Community posts off your profile. - The Social Media Hat (Reblog)

Don't Spam Yourself on Google Plus

Many newbies who have created a Google Plus profile or page are anxious to share their links in Google Plus communities. This is a good thing, mainly because the G+ community membership usually far outnumbers the followers you have in your social circles.


  • Google Plus limits the number of followers to 5000 for personal profiles. (See Side Note below.)

  • Whereas, I've seen some G+ communities with over 50,000 members. Thus, there is more opportunity for exposure and hopefully getting traffic to your website or blog, if you share links via the communities.



* Important Social Media Tip!*
When you share the same post in several G+ communities, you need to turn off the feature that allows your post to also show up in your public post stream. Otherwise, when people visit your G+ profile or page, they will see multiple entries of the same thing over and over and over. You actually give the impression that you're spamming yourself.  It's a common mistake for newbies to make.

I get my social media tips from Mike Allton, publisher of The Social Media Hat blog.

He says: Don't spam yourself!!


Then he explains how to stop the insanity.




● ● ●
Side Note: Mike Allton's G+ professional profile boasts over 186,000 followers. The business page or brand account associated with his website/blog, The Social Media Hat, has over 8,000 followers.

Google offers professional or business profiles (may or may not be for a price) and those profiles show that you can have more than 5K followers. I don't have the details. If you want to know more, search for “Google My Business”.

By the way: Have any of you ever seen spam in that many different varieties? I would love to try the Hot &Spicy.
