*Want To See the Magic Of Google Plus*?

Follow these simple 3 Steps… anyone who actually does this can not EVER say Google plus is dead… or “I don’t get it”.. I dare ya.

1) Circle at least 25 People. These will probably be people you don’t know. Get Over that. Suggested users no good? Type whatever search word you are interested in, in that lovely “search google+” box at the top there. Circle at least 25 people up.. but more is obviously better. 100 is golden.

2) Make sure you have a Profile photo, something in your about me section and make at LEAST 1 public post… Go do it. Right now.

3) The most important step – Go through your stream and write a comment of some kind on every single post that you even kind of, sort of find interesting. Try and do something better that “lol” or “yeah” but honestly those can be ok too. Watch the video they posted, click on the link and make a comment or comment on another commenter’s comments. Share something you really like. Mention someone. Google+ is about Interaction Repeat step 3 daily for best results.

Sit back and watch the magic of Google Plus happen for you.

Its looking like Google is pulling out the Ax

Reshared post from +Kristopher Derentz

Its looking like Google is pulling out the Ax … and guess whats getting cut? good old Buzz:

"In a few weeks we’ll shut down Google Buzz and the Buzz API, and focus instead on Google+. While people obviously won’t be able to create new posts after that, they will be able to view their existing content on their Google Profile, and download it usingGoogle Takeout."

With the loss of Steve Jobs I fear that that we have lost the brilliance and drive that is (or was) Apple.

I believe that this is reflected in the iPhone 5 failure to appear. My hope, and this is from a purely selfish point of view, is that Apple can still fulfil their destiny according to Steve, to create products that 'just work' like your TV or radio do. This is the way it should be, true plug and play.

I am sorry to see Steve Jobs pass on at such a young age. He will be missed.

Share a Coke Campaign

I have recently finished working on a Coke a Cola web site with Wunderman advertising agency on the ‘Share a Coke’ Campaign. This involved a Facebook set of pages, a site to allow you to create your own Television Campaign and an iPhone and Android app.

Do you know a Matt, a Chelsea, a Kevin, a Ben or an Aaron? Now you can share a real Coke with their name on it! Coke bottles with 150 different names on them are now on sale everywhere.
