Welcome To The Infobunny Google Plus Complete Social Media Guide And Tutorial
Google Plus Circles Communities And Pages Getting Started Guide
There are really two big players when it comes to social media. In the Red corner we have Google Plus and in the Blue corner we have Facebook. Both have huge plus and minus points depending on your social media strategy.
Google Plus is very much a visual social media site that works extremely well with other social networking sites like Pinterest and Twitter where as Facebook seems to want to be its own entity and work on its own or at least that’s how it seems to me.
For example Facebook doesn’t allow pinning of images to Pinterest from Facebook, which is crazy, but don’t worry there is a very simple way around this, take a look my article that i wrote Here.

Simple Guide To Formatting Your Google Plus Posts
If your looking for lots of engagement to your all your Google Plus social media posts, +1s, comments and re-shares, then its is really important to make your content as interesting as possible to grab the attention of your Google Plus Followers.
We have already spoken about how important it is to use images in a striking, attention grabbing way now it is time to explore how to Format the text you add to you’re posts.
Google Plus Hashtags Explained
Google Plus Hashtags are incredibly useful because they help you find posts that use them and they also help you organize your own posts that you add them to, and they can help you find new contacts and customers as explained in my How To Grow Your Google Followers Article.
If you don’t add hashtags Google Plus adds them for you by selecting what they think are relevant hashtags, but its always a good idea to add your own.
Google Plus – How To Create A Brand Page
Welcome back to our Google Plus Complete Guide.
We now move on with a brief guide on how to make a Google Plus Brand Page. Google Plus allows members to create branded pages to cover their Hobbies, Business Opportunities, their Website or Sites, you can pretty much make a page about anything that you want.
Again this is a great way of categorizing content in the same way as circles are, as each page can have its very own circles and you can follow up to 5000 more Google Plus Members per page.
Google Plus – Guide To Google Plus Communities
Welcome back to our Google Plus Social Media Guide, we now move onto Google Plus Communities. Communities are large groups of Google Plus members who all share an interest around a common theme.
The theme can be anything the creator wants it to be, in my case, i am the owner of the Google Plus Engagement Community.
In this community we share a common goal and that goal is to bring engagement and interaction between members posts.
What are Google Plus Ripples?
Google Plus Ripples are very useful data visualisations that are built into Google Plus, they are enabled when a user shares content publicly.
Ripples are fully interactive and are updated in real time, which is extremely useful when your watching the viral reach of one of your Google Plus Posts.
When looking at a ripple, you will appear in the middle of the ripple visualisation as a circle as you are the original poster and creator of the ripple. When members re-share the post from a secondary post new circles appear around the original poster circle.
What Are Hangouts?
Google Plus Hangouts are a way for you to video chat directly with other Google Plus Social Media account owners. You can chat 1/1 or you chat as a Hangout Group.
It is basically Googles Version of Skype or Messenger, but its completely built onto Google Plus. Watch this very short Google Plus Overview Video Below.
