In order to get the most out of Google+, you should look for co-workers, colleagues, and other interesting professionals to follow. Google+ allows you to organize the people you follow into Circles. Circles let you easily customize with whom to share your posts and other information when using Google+. In this Day 2 challenge, you will find some people to follow and add them to a new Circle.
- Share with them and see what they are sharing
- You can chat online with them if they also have you in one of their Circles (i.e. they Follow you back)
- They will receive a notification that you added them to a Circle, but they will not know which Circle you added them to
- The name and Profile picture of the person will appear on your public Profile
IMPORTANT TIP: When looking for people to follow and add to your Circles, check below their picture. If you see an icon, followed by "smithfield-ps.org, that indicates that this is the person's SMITHFIELD Google account. This will help distinguish between a person's personal and Smithfield accounts.
