G+, Now that you're here, TWEAK your profile

Folks are asking about Google+ best practices for community leaders and end users alike. Our best suggestion is to tweak your personal profile, so folks know what's your story. This short-subject video shows where to:
  • Add a profile pic
  • Add a cover graphic
  • Edit your tag line
  • Edit your information

In this example +Cousin Russ and I mention how we decide to permit a profile access to our genealogy communities when tag lines include words like:
  • genealogy
  • ancestors
  • family historian
  • librarian
  • archivist

Update your Google+ profiles, folks. People want to see you, know who you are. There's something about face-to-face contact that builds trust and community. (Stepping down from my soap box now.)

Happy family tree climbing!
