Google+

Share links, photos, videos with your social network

Overview

Use Google+, Google's social media platform, to share links, photos, videos with your social network.

Google+ is similar to other social networking sites. The big difference is with Google+, you can choose with whom you want to share these things. It all starts with your profile. Choose what people find when they look for you, and include things like what schools you’ve attended, what companies you’ve worked for, and how people can get in touch with you.

Use Circles to Organize Who You Share With

Circles is a great way to share relevant content with the right people. Circles make it easy to organize your online social world by putting different groups of friends and team members in separate lists, family in another, and whatever other groups you dream up, then easily post different updates to each circle. You can create as many circles as you want, make each as large or small as you want, and change (or abandon) any of them whenever you want.
