Social media: the new and the not so new

There seems to be an ever increasing number of ways for us to connect with each other. Just when I think I’ve got the hang of one method, I read a blog promising me instant success if I’ll just take the time to learn another.

The very latest is a Facebook update. You can now allow people to subscribe to any posts on your personal profile that you have chosen to make public. Amy Lynn Andrews explains it far, far better here. I’m not a huge Facebook user so will watch and wait on this one: I tend to only use Facebook to contact people that I know in real life.

Out for a while, but one that I still need to understand far more is Google +. I’ve signed up, added a few people to circles and am slowly trying to get to grips with it but I’m still not sure what its niche is. I am going to do some more reading, probably looking at the demo and starter guides like this one and this one.

If you have any guidance on using either the new Facebook features or Google Plus, I’d love to hear from you in the comments.
