Getting started with Google+

Launched June 28, 2011, Google+ is a social networking service provided by Google, Inc. As a social network, Google+ shares traits (ability to share updates, links, photos, and videos) with other large social networks like Twitter and Facebook. Whether it’s connecting with colleagues and friends, finding topical information, or discovering new people with shared interests, Google+ is an amazing tool for building your online network. If you’re not sure what Google+ is, check out our Google+, what’s the fuss? blog post from last year. ( This session will provide an introduction to Google+ with a focus on creating your account, completing your profile, and beginning to use the many features Google+ has to offer. It may be helpful to you to create a Google+ account before the session. We’ve posted instructions in this publicly accessible document: Google+ sign-up instructions (
