Well weâ€™re certainly whizzing through our video series on Google Plus! The first installment for the new year is video 10, what is the etiquette for adding people on Google+?
Watch the video here:
Some of the commonly asked questions about Google+ surround the etiquette for adding people on the network.
Who can you add? Should you add back everyone who adds you?
One of the things that Google+ has done really well is that although people can see when youâ€™ve added them to a circle they canâ€™t actually see which circle. Google+ allows you to create multiple circles, each with individual names, such as â€˜friendsâ€™, â€˜colleaguesâ€™, â€˜photographersâ€™, â€˜fellow cat loversâ€™, and so on.
This makes it easier to organise your contacts on Google+. You have different circles of friends with varying interests. The great thing is that because a person canâ€™t see which circle theyâ€™ve been added to there is no awkwardness. You can also choose to place people in multiple circles. You could even have a circle named â€˜random people who have added meâ€™, theyâ€™ll be none the wiser!
Itâ€™s a great representation of real life and your everyday social environment, which they have been able to position online with the way theyâ€™ve structured the Google+ interface.
Over to you!
How to you go about adding people on Google+? Do you always add people back? Do you feel there’s an etiquette to follow?
